5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Aug 2017
Just coming to the end of a 5 night "seniors" package. Very reasonable tarif with breakfast and a seafood platter one night. Realy good.
Units are very modern, clean and tidy apart from being the largest we have stayed in.
Highly recomended.

Reviewed 17 August 2017 via mobile

All units are, thankfully for us oldies, on ground level. Everything was fine and as expected of a well-run motel.
What may seem a trivial observation, unlike many top-class hotels, the toilet roll holder did not require acrobatics to reach it when your pants are round your ankles.
Although having no on-site dining, there is a barbecue and seating, breakfast is available to order for delivery to the room, and at least four restaurants are nearby. For self catering, the kitchenette was well equiped.
Despite being located on the Princes Highway, the room was quiet and we had a most comfortable stay. The free WiFi was fast and reliable.
Overall a very pleasant (and economical) experience.

We stayed in the Idlewilde Motel for a family event in winter. The staff/ managers were friendly and polite, and the room was one of the cleanest I had ever stayed in. We were a walk from the two local pubs, cafes, and small shopping centre. Not far from lovely beaches and lake and other townships in the Sapphire coast tourist area. Good parking out the back, and all we needed in the room.

Room tip: Probably no perfect room, although very quiet despite being on highway.

A top spot for a winter escape from the chilly highlands. Jenny and Ray are excellent hosts and went out of their way to make our stay the best experience. The seafood platter was fresh and delicious. Scrupulously clean with comfortable beds, a great place to stay.

Room tip: Ease of access for folk with mobility issues. Close to wetlands, Pambula township, beaches and golf club.

We have been staying at this Motel whenever We can get away to Pambula, over many years . It is always clean, comfortable, and the staff -friendly . It has to be the best value on the coast. It is very pleasant eating in their Restaurant especially when their fire is lit.
Whichever of their deals you select, they are always fabulous. Their breakfasts are enjoyable and whilst there you must experience their hot and cold Seafood platter.
The hardest thing about our stay was having to leave. This is a great area to wander around ,with lots to see and only a short drive to Merimbula for lots more shopping.
If you like to visit clubs whilst away, check out their courtesy bus.

Room tip: All rooms are on one level and all very comfortable
