We stayed for 3 nights on the 2nd floor rooms, 2 nights in the standard room before moving to the 2-bedrooms apartment for the last night. Pros: Great handy location with an amazing view of the water. Very friendly and helpful staff. Fresh milk came in cute little recycle-able glass bottle. A good size 2 bedrooms apartment. Cons: Old fashioned...

We booked in at very short notice as we were heading out on an early morning kayaking tour. The staff were friendly and helpful, and made sure that we knew how to unlock the gates, as we had to be away by 7am the next morning. The location is ideal as it is a short walk to restaurants, cafes and...

We stayed for one night on our coastal road trip. We were trying to keep to a budget and had reservations about this motel when we booked. Some of the pictures made it appear a bit drab. It exceeded our expectations. Firstly, because of it's location – not very inspiring as you arrive – means that you're right on the...

This Motel is in the middle of the main street and adjacent to the waterfront, so it's convenient and close / walking distance to restaurants and the boardwalk. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!!

Stayed here for one night on a road trip down the coast. The motel has a great location on the waterfront, within easy walking distance of restaurants. Sam's Pizzeria seemed to be the go-to place to eat but it was packed probably because of the holidays. The motel is functional but rather old-fashioned. The aircon was quiet and worked well...

We live in the region however we needed an urgent overnight stay in Batemans Bay, NSW. We had walked past the Zorba Motel on many occasions and thought we would give them a try. What a great motel! The reception staff were so friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. The upstairs room was clean, roomy and comfortable, with...

We stayed here one night, we felt welcome on arrival and our room was ready super early than expected. The double room was on the first floor with views out to the sea and beautifully clean inside. The room had everything you need for a nice break and it was wonderful to wake up to the sound of the waves...

Had a one night stay at the Zorba Motel and was pleasantly surprised, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The view is spectacular! we stayed in a ground floor unit and liked the fact that you can walk out onto the grassed area. There are plenty of places to eat everywhere around you and shopping centre is a short walk...

Motel has the best position in town and has great water views from most rooms. The room interiors are modern and comfortable but the exterior is looking tired and rundown. This place is worth the stay, is a little more expensive than other places but is very convenient. So much potential for the future.
