Just want to share how happy we were with our stay at The Whale, Narooma. From the moment we enquired about booking a room, to the service in the Dining Room, the food, and in general the whole experience - was the best we have experienced and we do travel extensively. The price of the room was very reasonable, (a...

My husband and I went to Narooma to celebrate a 60th birthday. We had a suite on the upper level overlooking the in-ground pool, and breathtaking scenic view over the harbour/ocean. The two roomed suite accommodation was pristine, clean and elegantly decorated. Spacious lounge with a balcony, very comfortable queen size bed. The Whale Restaurant had a delectable range of...

The motel was very clean and whilst it could probably do with an upgrade in relation to the decor this is irrelevant as it has everything you need for an overnight stay. I would be tempted to stay there for longer over summer as the pool looked really good too. For those that like a morning coffee the coffee machine...

This place has million dollar views. It's not often you come across a hotel with a coffee machine in each room. The room has everything you need for a nights stay and was cheaper than the caravan park. There is a restaurant within the hotel but it's shut on Sunday night. Although there is room service we didn't utilise it....

The Whale is a very pleasant Australian country motel. All the resources, including microwave, and coffee machine (thank you), a lovely breakfast, and all with a view of the stunning Narooma harbour. Whilst the architecture is a bit uninspiring, it is irrelevant to the stay. And a special thank you to Tracey who was looked after us.

The Whale Motor Inn is a quaint motel with a nice renovation, gob smacking views and the best service we have ever encountered. After years of putting up with rude people at Amooran we finally tried this little gem. What we found was warm friendly staff, for whom nothing was too much trouble, a clean comfortable room, lovely fresh linen...
