We liked our stay here a lot. Room was clean and neat. The view from the room was beautiful. And the animals... birds, sheeps, baby wallabies just to name a few. Owner couple couldn't be nicer! Highly recommended.

Don't be fooled into judging by the presumed age of the building, the rooms are super clean, new mattress and fresh paint throughout. The owner was a gem and gave me a glass of wine after my long drive. The view out the glass sliding door of my private little verandah was of bushy headland, ocean and sky. I will...

Old but maintained very well and always spotless. Rooms are cheery, comfy and practical with lots of bench space and a deck overlooking truly spectacular views. Always a warm, friendly check-in. Highly recommend.

The break at the Kingfisher Motel was great. We have stayed here quite a few times before. The motel is clean and very quite. The views are to die for. The owners Jannine and Baron are friendly and helpful and can not do enough for you.

We were tired and checked into the first motel going into Merimbula and it was a lovely surprise. Our hostess very welcoming and the room quite spacious and comfortable with toaster, microwave fridge. Bed and bathroom good. Also has a verandah with table and chairs to enjoy the outlook, but visible by other guests.

A very clean, basic motel room, decided to give it a go based on the view and the bird show. it didn't disappoint, feed time around 5/5.30, after a while you couldn't count them. An onsite resident cockatoo, George, is very interactive and fun, no patting, likes fingers for supper!! The room is compact, clean and everything you need is...

And the big views that blew my mind! I read other reviews of this motel and was ready for lovely outlooks but not prepared for the reality of it. Opening the room door I was shocked to look straight through to glass sliding door to a semi private verandah with views to the sea! Stunning. The room was really pleasant-...

Welcoming owners, clean, a short distance from the township, great views of the sea and surrounds, very nice and reasonably priced breakfast. All this for a very good price. We have stayed there on a previous trip and that's why we wanted to go back.

We stayed one night at the Kingfisher Motel and we picked it because of the reviews of others who enjoyed the views and the wildlife. We were glad we did. The views are great and watching all the birds (and the sheep) being fed night and morning was great. The room was basic but clean and comfortable and had everything...

Doesn't pretend to be a 5 star property but the rooms are spacious the beds are comfortable and the views from the balcony you can watch forever. Awakening to the dawn chorus of cockatoos and parrots is a special treat. Too far to walk to town, but it's only 5 mins from town by car We will be back.
