Great option in Merimbula”

Sapphire Waters was in a great location walking distance to town restaurants. The room was spacious with a large sitting area and a verandah with a water view. Our room did not have a renovated bathroom and it was a bit tired. They are in the process of renovating all the bathrooms and some are completed. Ask for a room with a renovated bathroom if this is important for you. The staff were friendly and efficient. There is no restaurant on site but you can order the day before and have breakfast delivered. We chose to eat out for breakfast as there are plenty of options. We were very happy with our stay at Sapphire Waters and would recommend it highly.

Great hotel, beautiful, big room, many amenities, ”

Large room, lots of space, full kitchen, 3 beds, laundry facilities, free Internet.

The hotel was so lovely we decided to stay another night and just take a day to relax and regroup. We did our laundry, made dinner in the room and ate outside overlooking the pool, with great view of the Landscape beyond and the birds in the trees. Walked around the town and the boardwalk along the water, took photos of the shorebirds, did a little shopping. Wifi Internet is free but there is a limit of time or megbites or something per 24 hours and we exceeded it. Probably because of sending photos and skyping. It was back the next day.

Great location, nice price

It's a very nice motel. Room is large and clean, enough space for four of us to stay. Great location, we stay there as a middle point between Sydney and Melbourne. The price is good, better than other motels in Eden. I like this small town and the motel is recommended.

Although the bathroom was a little outdated overall the room was fine. The air-conditioning did not appear to work (at least we couldn't get it to kick in) but it was not a bother and I am sure if we had have called the front reception they would have had someone come to fix it.
