Summerhill Motor Inn
Ranked #1 of 15 Hotels in Merimbula
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We stayed in Merimbula at the Summerhill Motor Inn for 6 nights over the Christmas break. We had a very enjoyable stay receiving a warm greeting by the owners on arrival. The room was very clean and spacious and we enjoyed having cooking facilities available to us. We slept soundly every night and found the complex very quiet. Initially we wanted a beachfront resort but realised Summerhill was the perfect location, right in the heart of town near all the local amenities and only a short walk to the marina and beach. I have already asked my partner if we can stay there for the Christmas break next year, fingers crossed! AAA+ rating.

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent 6 night stay at Summerhill Motor Inn. Our room was very quiet, well appointed, and had heaps of desk space and a very comfortable queen size bed. Our bathroom had extremely generous vanity space and everything was lovely and clean. Easy walk to bakery, great restaurants, clubs, cinema, bus terminal and shops.

I recently had the opportunity to stay a couple of days in beautiful MERIMBULA. Everyone should visit this magnificent piece of Australia's south coast. It must have been my lucky time!! I was able to book in to Summerhill Motor Inn's Apartment, very spacious, well equipped and extremely clean, that's inside, then there is the private courtyard, more than anyone would expect!!! If you don't feel like cooking breakfast, try the best scrambled eggs and bacon you will find, served with pleasant smiles and friendliness from owners Sandy or Allan. Thanks for a great couple of days.

Room Tip: Upstairs is worth the walk, great view and atmosphere.

Beautiful surroundings with greens.
In the heart of the town but yet with good privacy and well maintained room.
Helpful and friendly couple which make us feel staying here like home away from home.
And our son had a great time playing with a cute friend - Samuel, the young owner.

This would be the most enjpyable experience I have had while away on holiday.The room was spotless and very comfy.The hosts were so kind and went out of their way to make us feel so relaxed and the brekky was hot and delicious nothing was too much trouble for Allan and Sandy to accomodate us and made us feel like we were old friends.I do hope everyone stays there as I know next time I get a break I will be visiting and staying at this wonderful motel.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

We hadn't stayed at the Summerhill for 3 years as we had found it wasn't as clean as it should have been. This trip my husband wanted to give it another go as the position is great....I am so happy to report our unit was spotless and the new owners and their son are amongst the friendliest people I have ever met:-):-):-):-)

Very convenience location , near to food an beverages outlets ( some nice lake view restaurant and cafes) , tourist attraction spots, supermarket, post office etc.
Just change of management, the friendlier, warm hospitality we ever had.
We get two bottles of beers and chocolate upon our late check in as they aware that we had a long drive from Sydney.
We stay in a nice, clean room with Spa and a little kitchen. And I love the beautiful rose garden at the entrance.Good value for money!

Room Tip: SPA room with Spa
