A group of us stayed for a birthday celebration. The rooms are spacious, well appointed with minibar, bathroom and kitchen supplies and well maintained. A new wall mounted TV was installed during our stay. Debbie was delightful from check-in to check-out. She even helped babysit for us on one night. A short drive from the airport and in between Merimbula and Pambula. A great location to explore the surrounding towns. Would definitely recommend.

Room size was very generous, check in a breeze and Debbie was very friendly and offered good advice for local eateries. Fairway Motor was everything we needed and overall was a pleasant stay for 2 nights.

stay ruined because of poor housekeeping. cobwebs and spiders hanging from the ceiling, cobwebs and dead creepy crawlies etc. behind the furniture. Although a daily housekeeping takes place, these things remained and worsened during our stay. Stained floor carpets - a refurbishment is long overdue. Nothing much by way of grounds or walking around, a pool which is the size of a home backyard pool, and a tennis court. Location is not that great either as there are many other properties within close proximity to beaches. Overpriced for the condition, facilities and location. Staff and proprietors were friendly.

I am sorry but I believe you have the wrong motel here for the following reasons: We pride ourselves on keeping our cleaning immaculate, as can be seen by other comments. We are on 2 acres of landscaped grounds so plenty to walk around and the pool is loved by all as this is a resort-style pool, sitting amongst our many trees and flowers. 5 mins drive to 3 different beaches and we are within walking distance to the village atmosphere of Pambula with various restaurants, coffee shops and unique shopping opportunities. We are continuously refurbishing so keep your eyes out on the continual changes happening. If you would like to stay with us, we welcome you with open arms.

We stayed at the Fairway Motor Inn in Merimbula for one night on our way through and chose it because it was next to Wheeler's seafood restaurant where we went for dinner. Everything was so easy. Friendly staff, easy check-in and check-out, very clean and comfortable.

This is a hidden gem which ticks all the boxes. It is sparking clean with beautiful gardens and surrounds. Location halfway between Merimbula and Pambula is ideal. Added bonus is the excellent walking/cycling track into Merimbula or Pambula. We had a spa suite which was huge.

In recent years I have stayed at most of the motels in Merimbula and Pambula whilst visiting family. The Fairway Motor Inn is our favourite so far, I am more than happy to spend a little extra to stay here. A lot of the motels in Merimbula are old and desperately need updating. This place has nice clean carpet, good towels, nice curtains etc, it just feels clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. My only suggestion is in the spa suite, it would be nice to have a tv in front of the bed and one that can support Netflix or something, I have noticed that is a new thing some motels are providing, which is pretty cool because there aren’t many places that exist where you can hire movies anymore. Thank you :)
