Very friendly, warm welcome when I arrived. Room was on the second floor. Older style decor but very clean and spacious with a separate room with table and chairs, lounge and extra bed. There was a balcony with views to the water. Air conditioning worked well for heating. Motor inn is well located near restaurants and supermarket. Would happily stay here again.

I have stayed here half a dozen times at least, perhaps 10 times in past 2 or 3 years. I was there again March, again excellent reception from Peta and Steve. Rooms are still spot on, clean, in good order, everything works and great layout. Breakfast is still a great meal. The motel has good occupancy rates, a sign of a very good business.

Reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was very clean and spacious with a great balcony view over Merimbula, Located about 100m from main shopping centre with the water close by. Cost for the night was very reasonable and we would definitely stay here again when travelling through Merimbula.

Our recent overnight stay exceeded our expectations for cleanliness and comfort. Whilst the motel was previously highly rated we were surprised by the quality of the room, particularly for the modest overnight rate. Upon arrival we enquired about booking a taxi down to Pambula for a dinner engagement and was advised that the taxi service was somewhat unreliable. After making four unsuccessful calls and leaving unanswered messages, we gave up and went back to reception to speak with the managers Peta and Steve. They promptly offered to drive us down to Pambula and then later pick us up after our dinner, all at no cost although we offered to pay. We cannot remember the last time we received such generous and above and beyond service on our many trips. We cannot thank Steve enough for GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND for us. Thank you again.

Wonderful room which had three separate areas - one for sleeping and another with lounge, dining and another bed and a little area in between with tea/coffee/microwave sink. This was a great layout for our little family as we needed somewhere to set up our son's portable cot away from the bedroom so that he could sleep peacefully without us interrupting him. The single bed in the living space was perfect too as I could go and sit there to settle my son to sleep and not disturb my husband or vice versa. Lovely balcony which had views of the NYE fireworks (a lovely surprise I was not expecting) The pool is great and my son enjoyed his swim. Only downside is that there isn't any covered areas around the pool so it was quite sunny so we couldn't stay too long. There is parking in front of the rooms ( we were lucky enough to get parking right in front of our room most of the nights) The motel is in walking distance to everything and easy to find. Overall, a wonderful stay :) Thank you!

Sapphire Waters is a very well located motel within easy walking distance of all the major shops and eateries in Merimbula. The room was fairly large although the bathroom was a little squeezy! The mattress appeared to be nearly new, everything was very clean and the tea/coffee facilities were regularly updated. Staff were friendly. The only thing that ruined our stay was noisy neighbours up till 2am!

I have stayed here several times in the past few years. Great loaction you walk to most places in town, eateries, clubs, shops. The owner/managers Peta and Steve are nice people, nothing too much trouble. Rooms are comfortable, spacious and all mod cons. I always go for a top floor room with views. It is a popular motor inn. The motor inn has high standard and well maintained, I always have ht breakfast to room and it is very good. Highly recommended. My choice of accommodation in Merimbula.

Lovely stay at the Sapphire Waters with my wife and daughter in an upstairs balcony room. Nice aspect, good balcony and room was clean and well presented with a great newly renovated bathroom. The staff were excellent and when we needed their assistance they were more than happy to help.

I had booked in for a 6 night stay and have found the premises to be very clean and comfortable. Close to the centre of town and an easy walk to the shops. The owners were very helpful and friendly. I really enjoyed my stay.
