Very down to earth and friendly. Rooms are comfortable, clean with easy parking. Nice restaurant with good slightly above pub style food and a bar, breakfast also just to the back of there (with the option of outside undercover dining ) or in your room, quiet with great staff. Pool clean and tidy, private enough. A downside is that breakfast...

St George is a small river side town, a perfect days drive from Sydney and has sufficient pubs to keep everyone happy after a long hot day Clean renovated rooms greet us and a restful night followed Very comfortable beds, nice pool and out door BBQ area On the more expensive side given its location

Just passing through and found this place. The service was wonderful and in particular, staff went out of their way to accommodate our children. In addition, clean room. Would certainly stay there again. Thank you

Partner stayed here on the third leg of a drive from Melbourne to Townsville. Very friendly service, $120 for a good sized queen room. Room and bathroom very clean, parking right outside. However the combined hair and body wash dispenser in the shower didn't work, Wifi doesn't work in the room (room 15), and it's 3hrs on 3hrs off some...

Average older style basic country Motel - quite dated. Very slow free WiFi but on for 3 hours only, then 3 hours off. No table just small bench with MW & toaster. Too much money for what was offered IMO!

First stay back at the Merino in a while, but never disappoints. Neat and clean as can be and breakfast was sensational. Wasn't aware that it it served in the dining room, but without fuss, it was whisked up to my room in a snap. Thanks again guys, always our favourite St George stopover!

We stayed one night, the room was clean but unpainted brick walls make it quite dark. Internet is free but limited both by quality(connection very difficult) and by time to 3 hours. A litmus test for me is the availability of fresh milk for tea - when I asked I was told the longlife milk was perfectly ok. Good, but...

A welcome rest after a hectic drive through torrential rain. Large room, good bathroom, comfortable bed, very clean. Excellent meal in the restaurant. Relief managers provided excellent service in trying conditions. Undercover parking was a blessing with the storms raging.
