Location perfect. Zorbas is an oldish motel but nicely brought up to date with room decorations etc. The photos that are on the web site are just like the real views which is nice. A very peaceful spot. The town is 50 yards/metres away and full of bustle with a wealth of restaurants to choose from. They say people return...

When we arrived we were told that we had to have a trundle bed instead of a proper bed like we had booked. Being 38weeks pregnant and a grandmother with us it was not going to be an option, they offered us another room to compensate but we had to pay full rate for the extra room. Sorted in the...

The room was a good size, well appointed, spotless and tastefully updated - a very comfortable night. Great location - right on the waterfront, in the middle of town and handy to shops, restaurants etc.

We wanted to visit Bateman's bay on our trip up the NSW coast but we'd left booking accommodation for the New Year period until October which was evidently too late. We initially booked at this motel as it was literally the only accommodation we could find for our family of 5 for this busy period, but we were pleasantly surprised...

Selected this motel due to good reviews. It is very convenient in the middle of the main street. Staff were very helpful prior to booking and on arrival. It is a fairly modest motel but the upstairs rooms have a wonderfull outlook. Office is not open early in morning hence the need to pay for accommodation on arrival.

Arrived for our third visit since Easter. This place is so convenient and close walking distance to everything like coffee shops, restaurants, club, pub(next door & across the road) & shops. Our room overlooked the Bay at ground level with our car parked at the door. The rooms are spacious with free unlimited Wifi and great value price. The staff...

The title says it all! We had such a fantastic stay at the Zorba hotel. The room was very clean and updated, the bed was comfortable and the staff were so helpful. We were on the lower level and enjoyed waking up to the stunning views of the bay. The Zorba Hotel is close to everything. If you are looking...

Just had the most wonderful time staying at the Zorba motel the last few days. My husband and I stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment upstairs on the waterfront with our daughter. The cleanliness of this motel and attention to detail is to be commended. Both management and staff are hands on and always there to lend a helping hand...

Good afternoon. In defence to your review it should also be noted that we explained to you our lounge suite which is only 2 years old was recalled from the manufacturer and we were awaiting a replacement. Which actually arrived 2 days post your departure. While the material was wearing away, it was still clean and covered with clean throws....

This traditional motel has been modernised with bright furnishings. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Being right on the waterfront it doesn't have the road noise of most of the other motels in town. With fantastic views and a convenient location the Zorba is great value for money.
