Stopped here by chance and the stay was OK. The location is beautiful but the property is fairly old. Staff were pleasant. I went for a walk around town but most shops were closed which was disappointing.

Batemans Bay is a lovely little place on the main coast road between Sydney & and Melbourne. It's ver small and quiet. We chose this hotel because it was on the waterfront and the photo's looked good. As motels go, it was ordinary. - the corridors could do with a lick of paint here and there. The rooms were adequate...

Premium location! The motel close to shops, super markets, banks, post office, restaurants, park, wharf and all kind of facilities. We felt it was so convenient during the stay. Good view! The balcony of our room is facing to the bay and the fantastic view is really attractive. The sound of the wave like a romantic song around us. Comfortable...

Let me start by saying the staff were fantastic, couldn't fault them. However, the accommodation, well, it was truly awful. The room smelt stale of smoke and while it was defo no smoking, I don't think it has been deep cleaned since the law changed about smoking in rooms. The furnishings were early 80's and dirty. The bathroom was littered...

Our room was on the second floor above the outside bar area, great room, although a little small for 3 girls. No problem though, I will book 2 rooms next time. The meals were scrumptious and the staff were more than helpful.Very professional and friendly. They deserve 12 out of 10. Hey and many thanks for all your kindness.

We stayed here for only one night. Our room was on the second floor. The room had a balcony but it was above the smokers area of the bar so all the cigarette smoke came into our room. Could not open the windows. Room big enough. Bathroom clean. Basic room.

We stayed there for the weekend room was spacious beds where like rocks. Our shower leaked like crazy but we mentioned that to reception the issue was fixed by the time we got back. We mentioned to them about the mould in the shower and bathroom but this was not repaired. Id only stay there if it was my husband...

The staff on check in (one young lady that calls everyone 'darl' came over from the bistro when we arrived) and then same staff served us in the bistro were fabulous. Very friendly and awesome customer service. They even provided a refund after I realised I hadn't handed over a meal discount voucher when I first paid. Meals were good...

For such a cheap price, the rooms are great! The Mariner has live music events, but thankfully they're done in a room far away from the motel rooms themselves; this means peace and quite all night, with amazing views of the bay. With food and drink venues right outside your door, you're sure to take it easy in such a...

we had only planned to stay two nights but loved it so much we decided to stay an extra 3 nights instead of travelling up the coast like we had planned. We stayed in a lovely clean room with beautiful views. we were concerned about the bar being next door due to noise but didn't really have any problems with...
