We stumbled on this gem of a place by accident. We were only looking for accommodation for one night, but ended up staying a second. With 180 degree views of the township, hills and ocean, impeccably appointed rooms, a heated salt water pool and amazing birdlife, you'd be hard pressed to find better accommodation anywhere on the coast.

We stayed at the Kingfisher Motel recently and we don't regret it for a moment. We arrived slightly earlier than planned and our room wasn't ready. No problem! They gave us a free upgrade to the best room at the motel! It's service like that which will have us happily return next time we are in Merimbula. The room was...

We have been staying at the Kingfisher for many years now. The rooms are large, clean and every amenity we might need is provided. The manager Janine is always only to happy to look after us. The views are great and the wildlife is a delight to see.

Another stopover at the Kingfisher with pleasant hosts and relaxing view's. We recommend staying here and will return, a bit of a walk to town but courtesy buses from clubs are available and a local taxi service provides prompt service.

Kingfisher Motel in Merimbula, NSW, Australia, is the best place to be close to nature but also have everything for the comfort living. Birds are coming close to you invited and fed by hotel owners Janine and Baron. There are also sheep, chickens just like at a homestead. You will enjoy proper working air conditioner, big enough fridge, microwave, flat...

Everything about this motel is excellent. The rooms are spotless, the gardens are beautiful and full of wild birds, the welcome warm. Quiet, private, bright and comfortable. Perfect for solo travellers, couples or families.

My partner and I came down during the Christmas Holidays. The hotel is situated up the hill which provides a fantastic vantage point. At night you cannot hear the traffic which will allow you to have a very peaceful sleep. Don't set an alarm. The local wildlife will wake you however we loved listening to them carry on in the...

We liked our stay here a lot. Room was clean and neat. The view from the room was beautiful. And the animals... birds, sheeps, baby wallabies just to name a few. Owner couple couldn't be nicer! Highly recommended.

Don't be fooled into judging by the presumed age of the building, the rooms are super clean, new mattress and fresh paint throughout. The owner was a gem and gave me a glass of wine after my long drive. The view out the glass sliding door of my private little verandah was of bushy headland, ocean and sky. I will...
