We had the opportunity to stay at Sapphire Waters Merimbula for only one night in February. The accommodation was spotless. The staff were extremely helpful in locating the premier dining facilities - don't miss Wheelers Seafood Restaurant.

Admit to being a little worried as people had mentioned the dated decor, but we were pleasantly surprised by the space and the cleanliness of the rooms, which are more like mini apartments. Large balconies with bay views in almost all rooms it seemed, and a very short walk into town for dinner. Yes it's not the most modern place,...

Wonderful. The rooms are what you would expect for a motel but very clean. We stayed here for 1 week. As we had just moved to the area and was looking for permanent accommodation and used this motel as our base for house hunting. The reception staff were fantastic. Very helpful. The pool is small but the kids seemed to...

Good size room and excellent bedding but housekeeping needs to be a little better. Consumables were not replaced during our 3 day stay and the rubbish bin unemptied. Front of house staff pleasant and knowledgeable.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I apologize for the lack of attention with the housekeeping. I wish I had known after your first night that your room was not getting serviced correctly,as it would have rectified.

We were a family of four looking for last minute accommodation in Merimbula in the January school break. From our first phone enquiry to Sapphire waters, Peta (The owner) was most helpful and friendly in arranging a room that would be suitable for our stay. As our travelling dates were a bit up in the air, Peta was flexible in...

We arrived here after a hot day as a last minute booking. This place had aircon, quiet and clean. The room was very spacious and well set up to put your feet up after a busy day. It is walking distance to restaurants and town.
