I needed to get away to de-clutter after a particularly stressful couple of months. I selected the WHALE MOTOR INN from an on-line search. I booked through Bookings.com, and on check-in, the staff member found an inaccuracy in the booking rates - I was immediately upgraded to a Deluxe Suite, and received a refund of $30 per night for my...

Overall very happy with our stay and Tracey at the front desk was brilliant. Not a major as I would certainly stay again but I think the bed may need an upgrade. Our unit was recently renovated and was so much better than I had expected. The location is great and the view from our room was sensational (room 18)....

While the building may look a little dated, the room we had and the view were exceptional! Our room was brilliant, with a SEPARATE bedroom, bathroom, huge lounge area and large balcony with spectacular view! One of, if not the best place we stayed in on our trip. Would love to have stayed longer and just soak up the view....

Just want to share how happy we were with our stay at The Whale, Narooma. From the moment we enquired about booking a room, to the service in the Dining Room, the food, and in general the whole experience - was the best we have experienced and we do travel extensively. The price of the room was very reasonable, (a...

My husband and I went to Narooma to celebrate a 60th birthday. We had a suite on the upper level overlooking the in-ground pool, and breathtaking scenic view over the harbour/ocean. The two roomed suite accommodation was pristine, clean and elegantly decorated. Spacious lounge with a balcony, very comfortable queen size bed. The Whale Restaurant had a delectable range of...

The motel was very clean and whilst it could probably do with an upgrade in relation to the decor this is irrelevant as it has everything you need for an overnight stay. I would be tempted to stay there for longer over summer as the pool looked really good too. For those that like a morning coffee the coffee machine...

This place has million dollar views. It's not often you come across a hotel with a coffee machine in each room. The room has everything you need for a nights stay and was cheaper than the caravan park. There is a restaurant within the hotel but it's shut on Sunday night. Although there is room service we didn't utilise it....
