Had just an overnight stay at Ecotel. We knew this was going to be basic and we just needed a place to sleep so it served our need well. Surprised to hear some bad comments as our experience wasn't bad at all! Our room was tidy with two single beds and a queen bed. All beds were comfortable and the...

Dirty (filthy quilt covers, crumbs on ground, mood in shower and ants everywhere in kitchen when we arrived), smelly (musty, mouldy), noisy during day & very very old. Almost like someone was playing a joke on us. Yes it was cheap but at over a $100 a night we wish we had stayed in a tent.

My friend booked this for one night as we were just passing through and needed a bed for the night. The rating was 3 1/2 stars... I wouldn't give it 1 star! The room was musty and the bathroom was just plain gross. We just couldn't bring ourselves to stay there so we handed the key back and forfeited our...

I am glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Sorry you were disappointed re. swimming pool. We advertise it as a seasonal pool and it is open during the summer. I wonder if you found your way down to the swimming area at Bar Beach? A very special place and a kids' paradise. If not perhaps next time you...

Last minute check in late evening, thank you. Clean and tidy but quiet, even though its on the main rd coming into Narooma. Beautiful grounds, older hotel style but peaceful feeling. Thank you again..

The receptionist was very pleasant....and very helpful. Even though the place looked a little bit old but it was clean & comfortable. The staff even provided us with a hot plate. It was really value for money. We had a nice stay & enjoy Narooma very much.

I have been off and on staying there for over 25 years when this Motel was run by a German couple. It was then known as Motel Montague. Since then it was bought by a Jewish couple who have renovated the entire facade of this Motel. When the owner died the motel was sold and the new owner transformed this...

Thank you for your kind and informative review. Always lovely to hear from folk who have known the property over the years. The original homestead, with hill-top views, was built around 1903 when this property was the Kianga Dairy Farm. Now of course Kianga development is a 'suburb' of Narooma. Several times a year we will get folk calling in...

We stayed for two nights on a scuba diving road trip. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and the rooms are fairly cheap.

My partner and I made a last minute booking at the Ecotel in Narooma in mid holiday season. The room was clean, a good size for two people and we had a nice view of the ocean out the windows.

Thank you for taking the time to review Ecotel and pointing out our virtues re staff, location etc. Yes the bathrooms are dated and on our To-Do List as we work through the refurbishing of the motel rooms. Apologies if you found them lacking and we hope to have them re-vamped for your next visit.

How unfortunate that you did indeed arrive when there was a pool filter problem. These things happen but it means once the filter is repaired it takes the pool a few days to get its balance back. Fortunately the sea is close by and the netted area at the North Bar a joy to play and swim in. We have...
