Traveling with 2 kids and looking for somewhere later in the day, we walked in and Bill made us feel very welcome, shared local knowledge and directions. Great view from rooms. Clean and comfortable. Good location to get to the boat hut lakeside to do the Merimbula board walk back toward town. All perfect for us!

I recently stayed 2 separate nights at Norfolk Pine Motel, on my way to and from the Light to Light Coastal Walk. Bill, the owner, has an excellent manner about him, very calm, approachable, nothing is too hard. The accommodation is comfortable, clean, tidy and there are wonderful sunrise and sunset views. As a bonus, on my first morning, I opened my curtains to find, immediately outside, a kangaroo mother, with joey peering out of her pouch, breakfasting on the grass. Great place to stay!

I run a social motorcycling group which hosts tours and day rides, recently we had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Norfolk Pines in stunning Merimbula.

I do my research on hotels / motels as it reflects badly if I get it wrong.

Bill (the Motel manager) is an absolute gem of a bloke, nothing was too much trouble and we even had beers waiting for us in each of our rooms. We booked out the entire motel on our trip and it was like being welcomed home, a beautiful touch to top off a great day of riding our motorcycles.

The rooms are spotlessly clean, have modern appointments, are spacious and have amazing views of the oyster leases and over the town. There are BBQ and ideal socializing areas out the back that are convenient, practical and have incredible views.

The RSL Courtesy bus will come and pick you up and drop you off at the end of the evening.

This place is a great, affordable option for travelers, groups and we will definitely be visiting Bill many times into the future.

Room Tip: room 12 has a great view

We drove from Melbourne to Merimbula and we were very tired and we came across this gem. Such a great place to stay! We don't have a bad thing to say. Manager was so accommodating, lovely and helpful. The rooms are very homey and are a modern version of a typical "motel". Loving the vintage tiles in the bathroom! Oh and I forgot to mention, the views are PHENOMENAL! Loads of kangaroos too! Five stars! Highly recommended!

I called Bill 2 days before our stay, he was super helpful on the phone and that service continued on our arrival. He let us check in early as we needed to attend a funeral in Pambula. Bill recommended a great spot to eat out for families for dinner and shared local knowledge with the chance to see some whales, sadly we didn't get too. Motel room was comfortable, clean and tidy with everything we needed for our overnight stop. Great views from our room and would recommend the Norfolk Pine Motel ..... Thanks Bill your customer service is Top Notch !

Room Tip: Let Bill know your needs & he'll pop you in room that suits best.
