We enjoyed our three night stay here very much, in a suite room. The room was well equipped and furnished, cleaned tô a good standard and the staff were efficient and friendly. It's conveniently located opposite a supermarket and petrol station, within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. The place has a dated but charming retro style.

We stayed for two nights at the South Seas Motel. It is located in the middle of town, so we could leave the car and walk to the shops, cafes, and Lakeview Hotel for dinner. The room appeared to be recently renovated although the bathroom looked a little dated. The sign at the front of the hotel advertises free wifi,...

We spent two nights in Merimbula at the end of a trip and we wanted a place that was very central to the town. The South seas motel fulfilled that requirement, and the price was very low. We were "upgraded" on arrival to a suite with 5 beds and a full kitchen, and that was fine, but the room was...

From the outside this motel looks pretty average but it is situated within walking distance of just about everything and the new owners have commenced renovating the units and in fact we stayed in #9 which had been renovated very recently to a good standard,for the price charged. We'd stay here again.

We had a few days in a deluxe room with a kitchenette and it was clean and spacious: perfect for our needs. The motel is in a central location and across the road from the supermarket. Apart from when we went further afield we didn't need the car as so many things are only a short walk away, including a...

Stayed here for one night and found the staff welcoming and helpful. We were a bit sceptical when we saw how close our room was to the road, also from the outside it seemed a bit dated. However road noise was not an issue and inside the room was lovey and clean with new furniture and carpets. The kitchen was...

Stayed in Room 5, one of the 'Deluxe' units. Unit was roomy & clean. Terrific kitchenette, well equipped with everything you could need. Beautiful little balcony area overlooking the pool with further views to the shopping centre and lake. Everything is within walking distance, across the road is Woolworths, Chinese restaurant, bakery, fish & chip shops and more. Both Clubs...

We stayed for a week with two other families and had a fantastic week. Lisa the Manager runs a great Motel, clean, comfortable and friendly. The cooking facilities BBQ area were great as was the pool. It's located walking distance to shops and restaurants and is across the road from Woolworths. We will be back, thanks for an awesome week.

This past Christmas, my family decided to change tack and rather than stay in my parent's home, take a holiday to the south coast of new south wales. My parents recommended that we all stay at the easy-going, highly convenient, clean and friendly South Seas Motel. My family (2 adults and one 7 year-old child) stayed next door to my...

Was pleasantly surprised with our stay at South Seas. Budget by price, but great location and comfortable, clean rooms. Staff very friendly and even a glimpse of ocean views! Pool would be nice in slightly warmer weather
