Just a short walk from the town centre. The rooms are light and bright, a touch modern and have floor to ceiling windows. On the second floor there are very comfortable balconies facing east. Fantastic for the early morning sunrise or at night. The view over Merimbula is lovely. The Hosts are warm and friendly and helped make a very...

The Owners were very welcoming and provided a lot of information on local attractions and places to eat. Our room was bright and airy very clean and comfortable.

The service provided by the owners was friendly and welcoming. Great advice given for both breakfast and dinner. Easy walk from here into town for a walk along the waterfront and shops. Had a loft room with water view, great for extended stay, very clean and comfortable.

Enjoyed the comfort of this motel very much. We stayed in a spilt level room with spa bath. The weather had us washed out for 2 days but this was more than made up for by the entertainment of the lovely hosts feeding the wild rainbow lorikeets. The motel room was clean, fresh and spacious and close to all the...

Hello Patricia, Wow! Thank you for such nice remarks. The Rainbow Lorikeets can be a bit rowdy in wet weather, even so they are such a delight to watch, always squabbling and bossing each other around. Have you watched them bathing? Water everywhere! Australians are lucky to have so much wild life that we can interact with. I am pleased...
