Such a lovingly looked after motel.
The staff were wonderful and so helpful during our stay.

The rooms were large, modern and definitely exceeded our expectations!

Pet friendly hotels in Batemans Bay
Probably not very helpful but when we take our dogs 🐕 we stay at pet friendly “Kiola tourist park”. It’s about 30 minute drive from Batemans Bay. Perfect for families and dogs.
