Very nice hotel in a bush setting

Pros: Everything
Location: Lovely beach. Indoor pool, cafes and restaurants in Pambula but you do need a car to get around. More restaurants,shops & supermarket in Merimbula.
First time stayed in Pambula. Very nice accommodation set in the bush complete with tennis court and pool. Close to Pambula Beach which has the whitest sand. Indoor pool and small coffee shops are a short drive away. Definitely need a car to get around and explore this beautiful part of Australia! Short drive to Merimbula for more shopping and restaurants.
