We have stayed here a number of times over the past 6 years. Always spotlessly clean and well maintained. Janine and Baron are great hosts. Highly recommended for those wanting a quiet stay with great views.

Best stop of the month away. Birds were amazing, right outside your window. Beautiful colours and so many types. Great hosts. Very helpful with the smallest things. Comfortable beds. Great shower. Clean and tidy. Will go back for sure.

Firstly, if you are looking for the latest design in motels, this one is not for you. If you want a spotlessly clean motel with spectacular views, close to beach, shops and restaurants, very fair rates, and to top it of, friendly and helpful owners, then this motel is the one for you. Usually I will only stay in accommodation...

For a budget motel this was amazingly good. Rooms are bright and light and a pleasure to relax in and all have a semi-private balcony overlooking the bush and the sea. The motel grounds come complete with great birdlife and the occasional sheep. The room itself is well fitted out with a comfortable bed, sofa and table and chairs as...

I married an Aussie 40+ years ago and we have traveled to Australia over a dozen times, normally for three months at a time. We try to tour different sections of the country each time we travel. We have stayed in expensive places, cheap places and average places. But we found the Kingfisher one of our most enjoyable stays of...

We stayed at this motel on our way to a wedding on the south coast and were very impressed, and sad to be in and out so quickly! The room was spacious and comfortable, and the balcony had a great view down to Merimbula. Enjoyed watching the birds over a cup of coffee in the morning and will definitely go...

Owners at this small but comfortable motel are wonderful, I've strayed a couple of times over the past 11 years but prefer to stay here for the great service, spectacular views, great breakfasts made with eggs collected that morning usually, make sure to book as it gets busy

We were very pleased with this motel it was clean and bright and the views were beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised as the place was of the old style but the rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed. The lovely big sliding door onto the balcony gave the whole place a spacious and open feel to it. A great...

What a magnificent experience to gaze out over the view below, and soar with the flocks of birds. The owners of this motel are wildlife lovers and volunteer for WIRES. So if you like birdlife, this is the place for you! Every room has a balcony so you sit out and enjoy the vista.

I used The Kingfisher to break up a journey from Sydney to Melbourne and return. This proved to be a great decision. Room 14 was spacious and well equipped and fitted my purposes exactly. The breakfast is served in the room and there is a good choice. The view from the balcony of the rooms is superb as it overlooks...
