Lovely place with friendly people. Has a pool, BBQ & DVDs you can borrow. Bed & pillows were a bit hard but had all the things we needed for our stay & overall not a bad place to stay. Lots of nearby things to do. Close to small airport & beaches.

Good morning Maggie, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and our facilities. Pillows are such personal items and have to be just right. We do have other pillows available which we could have swapped for you. Did you know that Merimbula Airport is a very busy place it operates several daily flights between Sydney and Melbourne by both Rex...

We stayed a single night while driving from Sydney to Melbourne. The hotel is small and cheap. However, it's clean and decently kept. You park right outside the room (it'a motel duh). There is internet which works fine. Don't expect much more than a room and a bed, but this is what you pay for, but the value for money...

My boyfriend and I spend a relaxed weekend here in late November 2016. Right off the bat, the owners were some of the nicest people I've ever met- friendly, helpful, and check-in was quick and easy after our 4 hour car trip. When I enquired when the pool would be open again (it was closed for maintenance), Antoinette tested the...

Hello Kirby, Nice to hear from you. Your kind words are very flattering, thank you for your detailed precis. Merimbula is quiet at the moment pre-Holiday season so is a great time to wander around, utilise the beaches and boardwalk.

We stayed one night and had a standard room which was roomy, spotless clean and had a nice backyard patio. No views but a wonderful lush green garden. The hosts are welcoming and nice people.

Really pleasing Motel to stay at, a very clean and well fitted out room and excellent gardens. What a genuine welcome we received from the lady at reception and when we met during our stay. Only drawback was we were in a twin room which all seem to be at the roadside and the traffic noise was quite loud all...

Antoinette P, Owner at Sea Spray Motel Merimbula, responded to this review

hello Robert, I am pleased you enjoyed our hospitality, thank you for the nice comments. There is occasional light local traffic along Merimbula Drive at night, heavy transport uses the Pambul/Merimbula Bypass, if you live in a rural area then any noise would be disturbing. We always sleep better in our own environment where sounds are familiar. Ssfe travels, Antoinette

The lady running the hotel was absolutely lovely. My partner and I were running late and she organised everything for us. The room was very clean and tidy and the birds there were beautiful! Next time I'm in Merimbula I will definitely be back here!
