This traditional motel has been modernised with bright furnishings. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Being right on the waterfront it doesn't have the road noise of most of the other motels in town. With fantastic views and a convenient location the Zorba is great value for money.

We stayed at Zorba Motel during a driving holiday. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. The room was clean, the bed was lovely and the view of the water was wonderful. The Hotel is in a great location for shopping, eating and having a lazy beverage or two. Absolutely recommend this place if you're staying in Batemans Bay!

Friendly and helpful staff. Great location right next to the esplanade. We stayed with our toddler and found the room to be very comfortable and clean. The car park was good and is secured at night. We will be back!

You need to get past a rather tacky exterior and into beautiful seafront views. Helpful staff and good parking. The downside is this is a 40year old motel and noise from adjacent rooms can be a bother. Best is the quick access to the Esplinade and the visiting parrots.

Highly recommend the waterside rooms. Great view over the river and out to the heads. Rooms are clean and plenty of space. The location is easy walking distance to restaurants and there's walking paths right outside.

We stayed here for one night and after a 520 km motorbike day the welcome of Debbie felt like a warm bath. Room was good and decent size and modernly decorated, and the view over the water was nice. Nice central location.

Stayed overnight. Lovely location. Had an upstairs room with views over the bay. Enjoyed the balcony in the afternoon and morning. Rooms was very good, bathroom clean and modern. Easy walk to many restaurant options for dinner and breakfast. Only negative is that there were no wine glasses in the cupboard. In many motels I wouldn't miss this, but with... More
