Finding a dog friendly hotel resulted in us having a great break down the coast and spending lots of time walking and exploring. Our room and outside area was very safe for our dog as was the pool area. Staff were lovely and rooms made up daily as required. Couldn't ask for more.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Whale Motor Inn. Our room/suite exceeded our expectations. The view overlooking the sea was so fantastic that we holed up in our room after a long day of driving and hiking and ordered room service. The dinner was fresh, local and delicious. The bedding was very comfortable and bathroom plus toiletries well appointed. Thanks...

I carefully read all the reviews of an accommodation destination I can, as I am picky about where I stay (as it usually costs no more to have a great stay... and I'm a clean freak!). I wouldn't have chosen the Whale from some of the comments - but I liked the look of their executive spa room more than...

I had high expectations of this motel but on arrival I was left feeling deflated. First impressions are SOoo important and the reception area was really dated and extremely cluttered. Our welcome was lukewarm and when asking about the local area the response was vague. Things lifted a little when we went into the room, it was a good size...

We stayed at this motel for two nights and had dinner in the restaurant on the Saturday night. The rooms are excellent and good value for money. It appears that every room has an ocean view and what a view that is in Narooma. The menu in the restaurant is varied enough to satisfy most and our meal was fantastic....

Narooma is a lovely place and there was a great view of the river mouth from this hotel on the hill. Our suite was large, clean and comfortable. My wife enjoyed a swim in the pool. Sadly, the restaurant was closed on Mondays; it sounded very good but we ate the food we'd brought with us instead... Breakfast wasn't included...

The food is sourced locally they make everything on site they use vegetables from their own large garden out the back hands down the best food you will find on the Far South Coast.

We had a lovely time at the Whale Hotel. Great family room for kids and adults. Pool was lots of fun for the kids. Friendly and helpful staff. Pet friendly. Easy walking distance to all amenities. Wi-Fi was unavailable most of the time we tried to connect. Maybe due to high amount of users as the hotel was fully booked....

Have used Whale as a way point on drives to Victoria on several occasions and found it welcoming and offering good value and comfort. Renovations are progressivly refreshing rooms. Nice view up the coast and a decent pool. It's restaurant can be a mixed experience. Prices are city levels and quality should match every time. Lynch's hotel provides an option...

The Family Suite was a very nice accommodation - especially in regards to size, room layout, and supplies - for a family of four adults on holiday. The rooms were clean, and the kitchenette supplies satisfactory. Although there was no stove top or toaster oven in the suite, the Inn has a BBQ available for guest use, which was great....
