Stayed here for 3 nights, reasonable tariff considering its central location. Room a little tired but very clean, tidy and comfortable. The new owners were helpful and friendly with a nice family feel. Would recommend.

We decided on a last minute trip to Merimbula for Good Friday and The Pelican Motor Inn was within our price range and luckily had a room left. We were greeted with a very friendly welcome, Thomas and Michelle explained they had just taken over and were still finding their way but they did it calmly and with a smile....

A great stop for us over 3 nights. Tariff was reasonable for central location and spotlessly clean room with a distant view. Owners were delightful and happy to assist. Nice pool and facilities and we loved it after a not so nice experience at a much more expensive over hyped resort up the road.

Here with a group and the staff could not be more obliging. Room was clean tidy and comfortable and the location was ideal - just a short walk to the shops, movies and so on. No on site restaurant but there are plenty of places to hear nearby.

In Merimbula there are heaps of places to stay & my wife & I decided to check in here after a quick run through on Trip Advisor. You could never call Merimbula the bargain accommodation capital of NSW but the Pelican was quite reasonable, considering some of the others. The managers were very friendly & had exceptional knowledge of the...

Stayed here for one night recently. Check in smooth, host seems like a nice guy. Room was clean, spacious and quite modern. Spent some time down at the pool which was nice on a hot day. This place is centrally located amongst a strip of motels.

Wow what a difference picking the right place to stay can make. Bruce our host (his wife Terri away) was such an increcibly kind and considerate person who takes a lot of time in making sure you enjoy your stay.
