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.
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!
Comfortable, helpful and great location”
Excellent location for 6nights with a 12 year old girl. Very clean rooms and site. Everything Merimbula has to offer is right on your doorstep. Pool area and pool was always clean and plenty of room for guests and their families.
A little 'Gem' on the Sapphire Coast!”
Great place to stay, perfectly located to the beautiful Merimbula waterfront, restaurants, shops & beaches. Extremely clean, welcoming friendly staff & great value for money. Would definitely stay here again!
Nice host, comfortable bed, nice stay ”
Nice host, comfortable bed, nice stay . My partner and I enjoyed the stay at South seas motel & apartments very much. We had a long drive before check in, the host gave us with a bottle of hot milk during our check in and expressed sincere welcome that made us felt good.
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.
Great Location. Cheap and Cheerful”
Great little motel right near everything for a short stay. Has a pool but was too cold when we stayed. Right in the middle of the shops was close to shops and restaraunt. Quite a busy place in peak seasons though.. Thank you
Wish we were staying there longer.”
We were there for an overnight stop, however motel room is well equipped for a longer stay. There is a kitchenette in the room, very sufficiently equipped in my opinion, complete with dishwashing detergent which was a first for me! Otherwise very well kept and spacious. Woolworths and a few restaurants located nearby. Host was also very pleasant.
Great friendly helpful manager ”
The motel is dated but clean and provide good kitchen facilities. The deluxe room can accommodate 3 people comfortably. We always parked our car at the motel and took a short easy walk to town centre.
The perfect one nighter”
My husband and I stayed here overnight on our way back to Sydney. Being one of the cheaper places in the area our expectations were not high. However we were pleasantly surprised to be welcomed by a lovely lady who greeted us by name before we even introduced ourselves. Arriving in the evening we received a free upgrade to a larger room, which had everything we needed for a good night stay including a must for us - a comfortable queen size bed. Located across the road from the local Chinese restaurant w had a lovely dinner, then followed up with a great nights sleep. Thanks for a lovely stay.
Friendly service, well equipped room”
We only stayed for 1 night but we had everything we needed, mini kitchenette with toaster, kettle and selection of crokery and cutlery. Large bathroom with good shower. TV and aircon/heater in room. On the ground floor our room had patio doors that opened onto a small patio area with table and 2 chairs. Downsides would be the aircon unit was very noisy, wi-fi was available although very expensive, only your first 50mb were free. Overall though, very happy with our stay.
Friendly staff and clean rooms”
Arrived well before check in time and the man at the desk was lovely and let us in early no problem at all. Room was clean and functional and perfect for our 1 night stay. Hotel is right in town so walking distance to everywhere. There is a supermarket accross the road and a kitchenette in the room so practical in that sense.
Good location good staff”
It is located at the center of the town, right across from the Coles supermarket, 5 minutes walk to the beach. There is a small kitchen area in the room. Very nice hotel and very nice staff.
great older style apartment , did not have any of the advertised free wifi, had to go to pool area. Rest of the stay excellent
Great hotel in a excellent location with friendly staff. ”
Very well kept & clean motel in a good location. Great value for money, would definitely go there again.
Value for money ”
T staff was friendly n gave us dining advice. T room provided basic equipment n we could cook. It is a motel so t overall cleanliness is still acceptable. It is a choice w value for money
Could not have chosen a better location, a walking distance to all of the beaches that you would want to visit and all of the shops, restaurants and supermarkets. The staff are very accommodating and the rooms were serviced and cleaned every day. The pool and barbecue facilities are also great and clean.
Located 1 behind the main shopping centre, handy to shops and 2 clubs - RSL & Club Saphire. ”
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
Nice one nighter on the way south.”
Was just looking for an over nighter on the way through to Victoria. An easy relaxed atmosphere, nothing fancy, but captures the coastal holiday vibe. The only thing I overlooked was that the 'budget room' does not have an airconditioner. Whilst it does come with a fan, there is no front window to open, and only a small back window - so no cross ventilation, and it got pretty muggy. Just something to be aware of if you are planning to spend a bit of time there in the warmer months.
We stayed here for our honeymoon. Best decision as the staff were amazing, the room was comfortable and tidy and the location is the best! We will most definitely be back!
