We enjoyed our stay here! The staff are lovely and it’s located in the heart of Merimbula. We were in a room at the back so didn’t have any traffic noise and our room was very clean and spacious.

Pleasant reception. Proprietor quickly resolved mix up in reservation (caused by Wotif!!) ánd was happy to make our dinner reservation at a local seafood restaurant, and provide assistance in getting a taxi. And all this when we arrived late. Fantastic service!
