You can't fault the location or the friendliness of the staff but Mariners really needs a face lift. Quite clean ( some mould in the shower) but you can't clean broken tiles, faulty lights, very thin walls and just general wear and tear. On the up side, the meals are fab and everything is within an easy walk.

Thank you for the review of Mariners on the Waterfront Hotel. We are glad you enjoyed the service our staff provided and meals while you stayed with us. The Hotel is soon to be renovated to make sure our customers can have a even more comfortable stay.

Right in the heart of the township, this hotel is well appointed and the rooms are clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The only downside was the smell of cigarette smoke wafting from the bar below and from adjoining rooms’ outdoor terraces. The view out over the river and bay to the ocean is perfect, and we’d stay again...

Overall the room was old, but clean and neat. Kids at least had a single bed to themselves. Our water view consisted of a view of the building roof next door, with a slight glimpse of water. Unfortunately the guests we had alongside us decided to come up to their room after being in the bar below for hours and...

Arrived and got the last parking spot underground, very squishy. Rooms were very outdated, shower curtains in the shower, broken tiles and a bit of mould, bed was nice and linen was nice. Right next to pub/attached to it so alot of noise from people on balcony. Location was nice however whole place smelt of stale smoke even though there...

The room was spotless and comfortable. Bathroom was very clean but a shower curtain is not really something you find in hotels anymore. Reception was very friendly. Parking under the building was disgusting and did not look like it has been swept in days. The $20 breakfast was shocking. We had to pay extra for cappacino?

Feeling a bit underwhelmed by this place at the moment; the negatives are outweighing the positives by quite some margin. The handover of key and information was not the best; there was no parking which we were told there would be, and considering we booked some considerable time ago, this was disappointing. The phone in the room did not work,...

Great location. Super friendly and helpful staff. Updated rooms. Great view from most rooms. Beaut balcony on most rooms to take in the views. Bistro and bar onsite. Looks a bit shabby on the exterior but I found the interiors to be clean and comfortable.

Stopped here by chance and the stay was OK. The location is beautiful but the property is fairly old. Staff were pleasant. I went for a walk around town but most shops were closed which was disappointing.

Batemans Bay is a lovely little place on the main coast road between Sydney & and Melbourne. It's ver small and quiet. We chose this hotel because it was on the waterfront and the photo's looked good. As motels go, it was ordinary. - the corridors could do with a lick of paint here and there. The rooms were adequate...

Premium location! The motel close to shops, super markets, banks, post office, restaurants, park, wharf and all kind of facilities. We felt it was so convenient during the stay. Good view! The balcony of our room is facing to the bay and the fantastic view is really attractive. The sound of the wave like a romantic song around us. Comfortable...
