“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2010

I have stayed at the Kingfisher about 5 times now, the first time in 2002. It is my home away from home. Janine and Baron are so welcoming, the rooms are so clean and bright and well-equipped. The peace is only broken by the incredible birdlife! The in-house movies are great - I always manage to catch up on some film I missed at the cinema. I usually travel alone, and always feel safe at the Kingfisher. My favourite motel ever - I wish I were there now.

We stayed here overnight on our way down the coast and were very pleasantly surprised. The receptionist was very jolly and full of information about where to eat in town. While the room was a basic hotel room, it was very clean and comfortable. In the morning I awoke early to the beautiful sunrise followed by scores of birds feeding on the grass under our balcony. Despite it being a cold winters morning, the balcony side of the hotel was protected from the wind and it was very warm sitting in the sun watching the birds and drinking our tea.

We took the south coast road for our drive back to sydney from melbourne and were looking for a nice place to stop over for a night to rest. I was a bit hesitant at first coz theres only 1 review here for this motel but then this one of the affordable one and glad to give it a shot. Merimbula is a nice small seaside town with a beautiful bay. Was pleasantly welcomed upon arrival with very friendly receptionist. Amazed to find numerous numbers of cockatoos, lorikeets, and some other species of birds and parrots just outside our room. and with great views of the sunset and sunrise from the rooms balcony over looking the sea. I am more impressed to find the simple toilet is very clean, maybe its newly renovated coz could not find a single grime at all. All in all its a clean simple place to rest for a night with a great view to greet you with amazing sunrise and sunset. and yeah RSL is the best place to eat in this town and enjoy a pokie at the casino after a great meal hehe

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2010

We stayed here on our way from Sydney to Melbourne.
The room was small but adequate and the view was just amazing.
Each evening and first thing in the morning the Motel comes alive with the arrival of hundreds of Parrokeets and cockatoos, absolutley incredible.
Each room has its own balcony with views to the sea.
Unfortunately, as is the case with virtually all Hotels, you cannot choose you neighbours and their inconsideration for other people never fails to amaze.
In this instance I am referring to the shutting of doors quietly.
Best place to eat is the RSL club where you obtain temporary membership for the day.
