Another stopover at the Kingfisher with pleasant hosts and relaxing view's. We recommend staying here and will return, a bit of a walk to town but courtesy buses from clubs are available and a local taxi service provides prompt service.

Birds are coming close to you invited and fed by hotel owners Janine and Baron. There are also sheep, chickens just like at a homestead. You will enjoy proper working air conditioner, big enough fridge, microwave, flat...

Everything about this motel is excellent. The rooms are spotless, the gardens are beautiful and full of wild birds, the welcome warm. Quiet, private, bright and comfortable. Perfect for solo travellers, couples or families.

My partner and I came down during the Christmas Holidays. The hotel is situated up the hill which provides a fantastic vantage point. At night you cannot hear the traffic which will allow you to have a very peaceful sleep. Don't set an alarm. The local wildlife will wake you however we loved listening to them carry on in the...

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...

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.
