Nice and centrally located Motel. Clubs, restaurants and shops are all very close. The staff were very helpful in advising where to eat and take breakfast-if needed. We went to the Bowling club for dinner which was OK -typical pub meal! Club was only a short walk through the cinema -great as it was wet. Room was very clean and...

Stayed just one night in this lovely , convenient very clean and comfortable hotel. Lucky to have a great view from our balcony. Can't wait to return and enjoy more time in this hotel. Welcoming owners with lots of information on location of different restaurants and shops. Sparkling pool and immaculate grounds. Wish we were still there !

My husband and I decided to have a quick getaway to Merimbula on 7 March and had just the one night available - which meant we had a limited range of accommodation choices. I found a mixed bag awaiting us - nice new furniture in a depressing, rather dark room: brown brick walls with old pinky/ beige kitchen and bathroom...

Hi Maureen, Thank you for staying with SummerHill. The Executive SPA suit you stayed is newly renovated with new carpet, new king-size bed, new furniture and the rendering & painted walls while we purposely keep one side of brick wall in the lounge area. We understand some people like it and some don't, although it is all very subjective but...

Chose Summerhill for our Sydney - Melbourne drive after doing some 'selection circuits' late afternoon. We chose well! Friendly & caring owners, immaculately clean, quality bed linen, a good shower (no water saver shower), king bed and a quiet room for a good nights sleep. Recommended. Tip: Check out the excellent fish and chips over and just down the road....

I stayed here with a room mate from bowls the motel was clean and tidy. Spacious bathroom and good to have a sink in the kitchen instead of awkwardly filling kettles in bathrooms. The bed was comfy and I would love to go back sometime with family.

Hi Nicole, Thank you for staying with SummerHill. You are right about the awkward experience that we all have to fill kettle in bathrooms even when stay in the 5 stars hotel. We are proud that is not the case when staying in SummerHill. Look forward to your next visit! Regards, Allan

Clean and comfortable hotel close to all amenities including RSL, my favorite restaurant Vicola, supermarket and shops. Our room contained a small kitchenette with a microwave etc and the roomy bathroom had lovely bath products. A good hotel for the price which is reasonable.

Superb location if you want to be right in the main streets. No hilly climbs no long walks.It is not a 5 star but it has everything and rooms were fresh and clean. But the best part was the super friendly and helpful owners and staff. I will always go back there. Ok

My partner and I stayed here recently and had a great experience. When we checked in we were greeted warmly and were given a great deal of helpful information about the area and about restaurants.

Thoroughly recommend this motel for a comfortable stay in Merimbula. Our room was spotless. Bedding was crisp and clean. Room make up was faultless each day. A very professional operation in a great location, close to many dining options and shopping strip. Great value for the price!
