We spent 4 nights with a group at The Reef.. We were in room 16 towards the back, it's a renovated room. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable with good linen. Pillows were fine. Room lighting was good including the bedside lights for readers. There is a mini bar in the renovated rooms, a fridge...

This is a run down place with little to redeem it. The only good point is the bed and linen are clean. The aircon is noisy, the curtains old and tattered. I stayed on the first floor and the steps up were steep and narrow, easy to fall down I think. I wouldn't stay here again.

Was just passing through Bateman's Bay when I decided to make a pit stop, saw the Reef as the first motel off the highway & we pulled in. Payed a reasonable tariff of $140 for a renovated room which also had a courtyard. The motel also offered room service which was quite surprising quality, not what you would expect from...

What a waste of a prefect opportunity to make some money.??? No explanation was offered. At reception we were told the room is a renovated room and it is 4 star....

Have to agree that the bathroom in our room was very small and it was difficult to use the toilet as it's stuck between the shower and the sink! In saying that though it's very clean and the shower works well with plenty of hot water and is roomy. The bed is thankfully comfortable and not like a concrete slab...

Service was good, stayed in an upgraded room however you could not use the toilet without standing sideways. The air conditioner is from the early seveties with nob controls and sounds like a train also not effective, could not sleep with it turned on so had a very warm night. Over all very disappointed with quality and is way over...

We chose the Reef Motel in Batemans Bay as the first stop on a seven day road trip of Southern NSW. After checking the menu of the adjoining Reef Restaurant which is part of the complex we decided to have dinner there. The menu looked good with a wide choice of seafood and meat dishes. What followed was nothing less...

The room was reasonably clean. Hard to find any staff at checkin or during the evening. Seems like their staffing model needs some modification. Our room faced a channel but not a great view. Okay place to stay but not top rate. Bed was pretty hard. Mini bar wine was good price!

I checked into this motel for one night on Saturday night just gone. When I checked in I was told that there would be no breakfast served on the Sunday morning. Disappointed, but came up with an alternative. I had a shower at 8am on the Sunday morning. There was no hot water, it was cold. I handed my keys...
