Well equipped for a motel room”

Friendly lady at reception who gave us a very useful map of Merimbula and highlighted the route to the beaches, lagoon and Woolworth supermarket. Excellent location near the main shopping area so everything in easy walking distance and petrol station opposite . Had a deluxe room, which had a very comfy bed and was clean apart from dozens of ants in the kitchenette area. Ant spray was in the cupboard under the sink, so a good spray of the area soon fixed that problem. Good wifi, good view over pool which I had intended to use but didn't as unfortunately it was foggy that day though others were swimming happily and using the BBQ area. Good food at the RSL cub 5 minutes walk. I haven't stayed in a motel for over 20 years as we usually stay in a 4* hotel or hire an apartment , but this was for an overnight stop. I'd say it was pretty good and would stay again, in a deluxe room as I like my comfort. This place was fine so I recommend it.

No hesitation in using again but beware not all rooms have aircon but those without have fans (located in the wardrobe). Very clean and friendly staff but make sure of checkout times as the office doesn't open until 0830 so if you have an early start I would pre check with the office

We have previously stayed at the hotel and it was a great experience but this time we booked to stay for 2 nights but due to fires were not able to get through to the hotel. We called and emailed the hotel regarding this as the roads were closed travelling from Sydney. They did not respond or answer the number of calls we made and have not yet even offered a refund or even a response due to the natural disasters in the area.

Dear Sukitha, Apologies for such a late reply. I have only just been able to login to the Agoda website. I did not receive an email from you. I did receive an email from Agoda on the 26.01.2020 requesting a refund which I authorized. I'm sure that you were refunded by Agoda. Cheers Jodie

Great Place to Stay!”

We stayed for one night over the weekend and would definitely stay again. We we’re upgraded at no charge to a 2 bedroom as we arrived early and our room wasn’t ready which was super nice. The Lady who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was close to the beach and shops. The room had really nice and fresh smell. The rooms were extremely clean. Comfy bed , clean fresh sheets. Cooking facilities available in the room which was handy. Nice balcony with a view. Value for money would highly recommend. Merimbula is such a lovely town, we will be back!

we stayed on a trip from sydney to melbourne. we initially only booked for one night, but after receiving a free room upgrade and checking out the room, we decided to stay an extra night. an extra bonus being we got the extra night at the same price as the first that we had got from wotif. excellent location and clean, well maintained rooms. i would definatley use again and would recommend. i have stayed at other motels on the same street but this is the best that i have used in the area.
