Last minute decision to head this far south via the coast., and so glad we did. We haven't been to Merimbula before, so chose this motel from studying a few on Tripadvisor. Our room was lovely, clean, fresh, good bed, what more could we want. Terri provided a few suggestions for dinner, and our initial choice was abandoned and we...

This motel is in a very convenient location in the town. You can walk across the road to the cinema or to the Bowls Club for dinner. The room is basic, the bathroom size was pretty good with an adequate size bench. Down side, they weren't thoughtful enough to turn on the heating which is what we experienced at the...

This motel is one of my favourite's of all the motels I stay in around NSW. Firstly, the staff are so welcoming, and on the two occasions I have stayed there during Winter they have the heater turned on in my room before I get there. The rooms are always spotless, well-lit and with plenty of space to spread out...

Great motel. Nice neat rooms with little kitchen, microwave and plates etc. Comfortable beds. Terri & Bruce couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. So central to everything. Walking distance to Bowling club and RSL for meals and Woolworths supermarket, just walk through the picture theatre across the road. Vline bus stops out the front. The pool and...

We stayed 4 nights and were very happy with the room. It had a kitchenette with a microwave, bowls, plates, etc. so you could duck up the road (one street away) to Woolies and buy breakfast items, bread, cereal, milk, etc. if you wanted. Parking was a breeze right out the front of the unit. It also caters for buses...

Our family of 3 including our teenage son used the Pelican Motor Inn based on a previous stay there and good recent reviews. The room was spacious and clean, the beds comfortable and the bathroom about right for the standard of the motel including a good shower. We did have concerns however when it came to the wifi or lack...

Not the best accommodation I've come across, through no fault of the management. Rooms were clean and well maintained. However, there is something about them that makes the rooms seem small. We made the mistake of taking a balcony room and suffered from smokers, some rooms away, the balcony space drifting smoke into our room and forcing us to close...
