We booked direct and asked for a room on the 2nd floor. It afforded us a very nice view of the town and lake. The motel is older style, but was very clean and comfortable. The room was a good size, with queen bed, 2 seater settee, table and chairs. The usual MWO, plates, toaster etc. Shower was good, the aircon was older style, but was a split system so wasn't too noisy. We heated up the room, and turned it off when we went to sleep. The room remained warm all night. Be aware if you google the motel, the address will be listed as Merimbula Drive, not 1 View street. The motel is on the corner of those streets. We were driving down and as as it was getting dark, had trouble finding it. We walked down into the CBD for dinner, only a 14 minute walk.

Beautifully maintained old school motel with glorious views out to the ocean. Very comfortable room kitted out with everything you need, and the most hedonistic shower ever. A short walk to many dining options, but don’t forget the steep walk back when choosing footwear or how much you indulge. I really enjoyed my time here and spontaneously extended my stay. Would stay again when next in the area

We enjoyed our 4 day stay in this excellent motel. Friendly owners & cleaners and could not fault the exceptionally clean, well organised & comfortable room. You could not find a cleaner, well maintained room anywhere. Is within walking distance of shops/restaurants/clubs, and a short drive to many local attractions. Well priced & highly recommended.

Awesome place to stay. Amazing management, room lovely and clean, close to everything. Shower was nice and hot with great pressure, beds and pillows were very comfortable. Very knowledgeable to the area and gave us great tips of things to so. And our cooked breakfast was nothing short of amazing. Will definitely stay here again. Thank you very much.

We stayed 3 nights Feb 2021. The room was comfortable. I did mention to owner issue with cobwebs and small spiders over window which he cleared and cleaned straight away. Kitchenette consisted of toaster, microwave and sink. I wrongly assumed kitchenette to have cooking facilities such as frypan and cook top. Advertised as large screen TVs but it is actually quite small tv. Aircon is noisey and had to turn it off at night. Ceiling fans good. The price was good as we booked directly with motel and paid $110 per night. Check in easy and owner friendly and helpful. Balcony small and not really usable felt to close if others walking past or using. Comfortable stay.

Spent one night here in December 2020 and should have stayed longer. Lovely owners who went out of their way to assist with any query, very clean and well maintained property. 5 minutes into town or get lazy and order take away to your door as we did. Would recommend and go back again tomorrow if the borders were open.

We arrived with car problems.Proprietors could not do enough. Gave us a "cooks tour" of the area in their own car. Offered further assistance. Rooms were clean & tidy, well fitted out. Great Q bed great shower, great TV. Kitchen was supplied with crockery, tea making, toaster, electric fry pan, microwave, reasonable room size, well ventilated, relatively quiet

Currently here for three nights. Awesome motel close to town. While there’s a bit of a hill walking back, it’s worth it for the view. Exceptionally clean, great shower, comfy bed, good linen and towels. Room included sink, microwave and toaster as well as normal inclusions. Internet slow but good 4G coverage. Great value. We’ll be back.

Stopped in on Merimbula and glad we found this Gem. Got a great price directly dealing with owners/management. Some would complain it’s dated but we loved it because it was so comfy everything worked perfectly and we had great personal service from management. Bed super comfy room was clean and well stocked we honestly couldn’t have wanted anything extra. Position is handy and some rooms have great views of water and lake. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice comfy motel room or holiday stay in Merimbula.

Booked this as a last minute 2 night stay - not expecting too much but were very pleasantly surprised! The room was very comfortable and clean, and the inclusion of a kitchenette with microwave was a bonus. bathroom products impressed me especially as they included makeup remover pads. The mini bar items were reasonably priced and a good selection. All in all I would strongly recommend this motel to anyone - if we ever come back this way we would definitely stay again.🙂
