Nice size room well set out - good little kitchenette. Friendly staff good location. One small basic missed detail let this nice place down whilst sitting on toilet a very obvious cleaning issue was that the end off the bath shower had not been wiped out in ages and had dirt dust and perhaps a bit of mould. It made...

Stayed for a night at this Motel. It is in a good location and it is clean and tidy, rooms were spacious with a balcony, but the room I stayed in needed repairs, especially the bathroom. Front door was warped and it had to be forced to open and close it. Staff were friendly

The motel was located in a good location and close to convenience stores and the beach.. Value for money. A great room+ Living space+ balcony+ Parking+ Fridge. It is recommended to take your meals out at the local restaurants or buy supplies at the Wooley's across the road. The bathroom tubs could have been maintained better(ours had a crack in...

We stayed at Sapphire Waters for two nights in February. The motel is reasonably well located to the centre of Merimbula meaning it is easy to walk down the road to restaurants, coffee shops, the bakeries. We have stayed at several motels along Merimbula Drive over the years because of this easy proximity to facilities. Apart from its location other...

The rooms were spacious and had a lovely balcony with a view to the water which let in a lovely breeze. The car parks were right outside your door and the owners were helpful and friendly. They changed our room booking from upstairs to downstairs when we said we had quite a bit of luggage. We strolled into town for...

We had the opportunity to stay at Sapphire Waters Merimbula for only one night in February. The accommodation was spotless. The staff were extremely helpful in locating the premier dining facilities - don't miss Wheelers Seafood Restaurant.

Admit to being a little worried as people had mentioned the dated decor, but we were pleasantly surprised by the space and the cleanliness of the rooms, which are more like mini apartments. Large balconies with bay views in almost all rooms it seemed, and a very short walk into town for dinner. Yes it's not the most modern place,...

Wonderful. The rooms are what you would expect for a motel but very clean. We stayed here for 1 week. As we had just moved to the area and was looking for permanent accommodation and used this motel as our base for house hunting. The reception staff were fantastic. Very helpful. The pool is small but the kids seemed to...

We stopped here late one night on a trip to Melbourne. The owners were lovely and very friendly and recommended a wine bar nearby for dinner and drinks that is open late. Our room was large and spacious with a comfortable king size bed. Despite some of the decor being outdated we had a welcoming comfortable stay and would book...
