If you're planning a weekend in Batemans bay my wife and I highly recommend the esplanade. We stayed on the top floor, which has slightly more private balconies with great views of the Clyde river. Rooms were great, very contemporary and well presented. We also had breakfast in the adjoining restaurant which was also very nice and overlooks the river....

Very friendly staff, very helpful. Rooms have recently refurbished. King bed was so comfortable. Really tasty breakfast in our room. We had dinner at the Soldiers Club. If you join the club you get a discount on your room. Meals at the club are delicious and the view is sensational.

We stayed here for three nights in the Ocean View Room. A delightful spacious room opening onto the balcony looking over the water. A separate lounge/TV/dinning table and in the second room was the bedroom also with a balcony. A beautiful spacious bathroom with a separate toliet. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again.
