We had a very large room with a lovely balcony in the guesthouse with a huge closet and mini-refrigerator. Room included lounge chair, small table and chairs, king bed.
However, there were no luggage racks, so we had to use the floor or bed. The bedspread had a worn, greasy sheen, perhaps from luggage. It didn't look very clean, and that was a turn-off. The bed was comfy, but the pillows were too thick and firm. We requested replacements for our second night, but the pillows hadn't arrived by the time we returned from dinner after 8:30 p.m. They appeared on the floor outside our door the next morning.
Other than the bedspread, our room and bathroom seemed very clean. We had a large shower with good water pressure, nice counter space, decent linens. WiFi was available but we couldn't access our U.S. email accounts on computer or phone for some reason.
The included cooked breakfast was delicious, and included a choice of eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans, coffee/tea, fruit and cereal. However, it was served from 8 to 9:30 am, which we thought a bit early when on holiday. It didn't matter since the construction next to our room started at 8 am, complete with equipment backup alerts and loud workmen--a minor niggle, and the construction should be completed soon.
The friendly, open, chatty owners have created a lovely property. We enjoyed the peaceful lakeview, the musical bellbirds and the curious kangaroos. In Merimbula, we loved the fascinating Wednesday aquarium tour, and returned for a delicious dinner with incredible views at its Wharf Restaurant.
