It was really nice to stay here for 4 nights at the Sapphire Waters Motor Inn - we had a spacious and comfortable room, upstairs with private balcony and a good view across the trees to the lake and ocean in the distance. The staff were very helpful and pleasant - special thankyou to Carol for her expert local knowledge, especially of the restaurants and take-away fish and chips places! It's an easy 5 minute walk to the main street and clubs, restaurants, cafes and shops. Within easy reach if you're up for a good walk is the lake or the boardwalk - you passed by the oyster farms and plenty of bird life. We'd stay here again.

Room Tip: We had room 21 up one easy flight of steps. It's on the end - very quiet.

Great accomodation, very large and clean rooms, great bed, big tv and bathroom with rain-shower. We had a great time at one of the best accomodations we have been visited in Australia. Good location too. The people behind the desk were also very nice and helpfull! Thanks for the lovely stay!

My husband and I stayed here and it was great. After a short taxi ride from the airport to the Sapphire Waters, we were so relieved that we chose to forgo a rental car ($200+ for 2 nights) as the Inn is a short walk away from everything great about Merimbula. The hosts were lovely. There is also a good collection of DVDs to borrow for free from reception. They have 2 kayaks available for hire. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We would stay again.

After the long day driving through the coast we arrived to Merimbula around 9pm - and realized that our planned accommodation was closed. After driving some more blocks around the town, we noticed this one pretty place that happened to be open when most were closed. And there was Carol telling us that we have just what you need :)

The apartment was excellent for our family (two adults, two children aged 4&8). Carol was so nice and understanding as she said that if we want to have some more sleep in the morning we can stay a little longer (we were only staying one night and then continued the road trip). The rooms and bathroom were good of their size, nice and tidy.

Additional pleasant information was that we got discount with our auto club card from Finland.

I truly recommend this place due to the friendly and flexible owners, excellent apartment and reasonable price.

We stumbled across this place when our planned motel was booked out. Very happy we stayed here for a couple of nights. Generous sized apartment with everything you could want. The management here obliviously focus on providing good guest service.

Our unit had a lovely balcony at the rear overlooking the pool area, elevated with views of the bay. Fabulous really. And sight in town - walk to everything!

Minor criticism - bathroom a bit dated and small but that didn't matter as there was plenty of room elsewhere in the unit.

When I checked in I asked if I could book one night with an option for two - no problem at all, and the nice lady at the desk said if you stay two nights we'll apply a discount. I really didn't care about a discount but, true to her word, she applied a 10% discount when we checked out after our two days.

Very highly recommended motel especially for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a look - they don't mind at all. Otherwise go for a balcony room.
