Really pleasing Motel to stay at, a very clean and well fitted out room and excellent gardens. What a genuine welcome we received from the lady at reception and when we met during our stay. Only drawback was we were in a twin room which all seem to be at the roadside and the traffic noise was quite loud all...

Antoinette P, Owner at Sea Spray Motel Merimbula, responded to this review

hello Robert, I am pleased you enjoyed our hospitality, thank you for the nice comments. There is occasional light local traffic along Merimbula Drive at night, heavy transport uses the Pambul/Merimbula Bypass, if you live in a rural area then any noise would be disturbing. We always sleep better in our own environment where sounds are familiar. Ssfe travels, Antoinette

The lady running the hotel was absolutely lovely. My partner and I were running late and she organised everything for us. The room was very clean and tidy and the birds there were beautiful! Next time I'm in Merimbula I will definitely be back here!

This Motel is superb. All rooms have been upgraded, the manager Antoinette ( who also owns the property with her husband) is wonderful and the gardens are beautiful. Since the new management have taken over (and it was lovely before) but it has taken that one step forward to make it fabulous. Also, there are beautiful birds that visit everyday...
