Stayed overnight on a road trip with my son. The manager was very helpful and went out of his way to organize a twin room. Perfectly located for access to restaurants and town facilities. Supremely comfortable beds meant an excellent nights sleep. Will stay there again. Highly recommend.

Stayed over the easter break with my partner. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was the added bonus of fast wifi and your rooms attended too every day. The location is also great in that you can simply walk to the main town. I would highly recommend.

The inn is really clean and comfy. The supermarket and the Main Street is within walking distance. The owner was really friendly and provided us many tips for food and what to see in the town. He also provided us with advice for the next spot of our trip! FYI - The owner can speak Chinese.

Nice and centrally located Motel. Clubs, restaurants and shops are all very close. The staff were very helpful in advising where to eat and take breakfast-if needed. We went to the Bowling club for dinner which was OK -typical pub meal! Club was only a short walk through the cinema -great as it was wet. Room was very clean and...

Stayed just one night in this lovely , convenient very clean and comfortable hotel. Lucky to have a great view from our balcony. Can't wait to return and enjoy more time in this hotel.

My husband and I decided to have a quick getaway to Merimbula on 7 March and had just the one night available - which meant we had a limited range of accommodation choices. I found a mixed bag awaiting us - nice new furniture in a depressing, rather dark room: brown brick walls with old pinky/ beige kitchen and bathroom...

Hi Maureen, Thank you for staying with SummerHill. The Executive SPA suit you stayed is newly renovated with new carpet, new king-size bed, new furniture and the rendering & painted walls while we purposely keep one side of brick wall in the lounge area. We understand some people like it and some don't, although it is all very subjective but...

Chose Summerhill for our Sydney - Melbourne drive after doing some 'selection circuits' late afternoon. We chose well! Friendly & caring owners, immaculately clean, quality bed linen, a good shower (no water saver shower), king bed and a quiet room for a good nights sleep. Recommended. Tip: Check out the excellent fish and chips over and just down the road....

I stayed here with a room mate from bowls the motel was clean and tidy. Spacious bathroom and good to have a sink in the kitchen instead of awkwardly filling kettles in bathrooms. The bed was comfy and I would love to go back sometime with family.

Hi Nicole, Thank you for staying with SummerHill. You are right about the awkward experience that we all have to fill kettle in bathrooms even when stay in the 5 stars hotel. We are proud that is not the case when staying in SummerHill. Look forward to your next visit! Regards, Allan
