    « Huge room »

    Had a weekend here recently as nearly all the motels in Merimbula were booked out & the other ones that were left looked dumpy. It's a bit out of the way & closer to Pambula than Merimbula. We got there late, around 9pm as we were driving down from Canberra in the late afternoon, I informed the motel of this when booking so the lady owner had left a light on in the room & the key under the mat for us. The room itself was huge, it was clean & it had a kitchenette with a microwave. The bathroom was nice & had a nice big shower, and was done up nicely. The only downside was the bed, it was way too hard for our liking & would maybe benefit from a topper. Apart from that its nice & close to the airport, perfect for an avgeek & the lady owner was lovely which is always nice to see.

    « Lovely spacious room »

    A lovely clean, spacious and modern room. Handy mini bar with snacks. A little out of the way from in town but a beautiful location and setting. Golf course/club over the road and a lovely seafood restaurant next door. Would have been nice if it was warm enough to use the pool!

    « Spotless, clean and wonderful customer service »

    I only wish I could have stayed longer! This was the last night of a week long business trip. Thanks Naomi for checking me in so efficiently and for kindly offering to drive me into town (so I didn't have to worry about driving home after a night out!). Room was great, extremely spacious and bathroom was brand new (shower area was huge!). Raided the lollies in the mini bar and I felt like I was the only person staying in the whole place....also Golf Club is directly across the road - good for a meal or a cold beer or two...lots of parking and loved the fact I could park right out front..this motel is located extremely close to Merimbula airport so that's very convenient also..

    « Amazing Motel. Deserves a 5 star rating »

    What a delightful motel and it was such a pleasure to stay here, if we did not have forward plans we would have stayed a few more nights. We were offered a choice of rooms on arrival which was great, we had a lovely little courtyard and garden. So clean, great amenties, a wonderful mini bar selection catering for everyone. They provide cooked and continental breakfast, and also little breakfast packs in the room. The staff are professional and friendly with a great knowledge of the local area.

    « Worth every penny (or cents or whatever!). »

    Our room was a queen and single with a sofa bed as well. Bed very comfy, plenty of extra blankets and the air con worked very well. All usual amenities in the room like toaster, jug, t/coffee etc and ironing board. Room was large and well appointed. Bathroom was very clean and the shower pressure was terrific, heaven in fact! receptionist (the owner I think) couldn't have been more helpful with places to eat late on a Monday nite. She was also a boon with info on the roads either north or south. All in all a welcome respite on the drive from Melbourne to Sydney along part of the coast road. Cant understand why they call it the coast road when for 522 kms not a beach in sight!Melb to marimbula.

    « Quiet, Spacious, Clean and Well Located »

    The room was as big as some apartments we have stayed in, very clean and tidy. The highlight was the electric blanket on the bed. Very friendly owners who know the area very well. The kitchenette is handy if you get takeaway from Merimbula.

    « Genuine value and service »

    This property and the service provided by the staff gave excellent value and made for a very pleasant stay. I had a huge room with all conveniences; spacious, clean and quiet. The staff were very friendly and genuine and most helpful. I would definitely stay here again and am happy to recommend this venue. Woody H. Canberra

    « Very Spacious & Comfortable »

    A nice quiet location over the bridge opposite the Pambula/Merimbula Golf Club. My room was up the back in a really large room with a fully stocked bar fridge and full kitchenette. A comfortable bed is always important whilst travelling for work. For dinner I just wondered across the road to golf club and I was able to charge back to hotel. A good selection.

    « Quiet and close to great place. »

    I was really Surprised how luxurious the fit out was on these rooms. They are huge and have a private small patio. No walking out and into the neighbour. Stepped into the slope with Pambula 2 mins one way and Merimbula- -5 mins the other. You are 2 doors down from Wheelers restaurant which is fine dining. Across the road is a Golf Club if you want a club meal.Very smart bathroom topped it off. Bed was very comfortable and by the looks of the people going onward in the morning ,it's popular. I liked being near the bush but also a short car drive from great bakery in Pambula and a walk to a great dinner or lunch. I'll be back.

    « Massive bathroom perfect for person in wheelchair »

    Very spacious room with the ability to transfer either side onto the queen size bed. Most appliances easily accessible, one power point too deep to reach from wheelchair. Bathroom terrific except for soap dispenser which was impossible to reach. The ramp from car needs to improved as very bumpy & gravelly, especially as on a steep slope. We went to the golf club across the road for dinner which was lovely & very accessible.

    « Handy Location »

    my first stay at the Fairway Motor Inn was back in 2012 or so during a golfing weekend (it's just across the road from the Pambula/Merimbula GC)... was so impressed, now each time we head down to the coast we always stay there. surely there is no better recommendation than that. nice an central, a short drive into Merimbula or any of the other great towns along the N.S.W. southcoast. highly recommended.

    « Very comfortable accomodationg »

    During our travels from Melbourne to Sydney l booked this Motel. I was looking for something in the town and naturally assumed it would be, however on arriving we drove straight past it as it is quite a few miles before reaching the pretty town of Merimbula. Feeling quite disappointed when we finally turned around and found it, we booked in feeling a little let down however apart from the location, we were very pleased with the accomodation and the grounds were very nicely maintained. The room was extremely spacious, clean and the manager very accomodating. Thankfully we found there was a seafood restaurant 2 doors up which was highly recommended and although they were nearly fully booked we managed to secure a booking and had a great night. I can't comment on the Motels meals as we decided to go into Merimbula for breakfast before continuing our travels but would think you wouldn't be disappointed.

    « Road trip stop over »

    Heading from Canberra back to Melbourne we stopped over night and managed to grab the last room. Boy we were lucky because this place is a gem. It has a pool and the room that we stayed in was amazing. Clean. Big. Comfortable. We walked over to the golf club across the road about 6.30pm to see the mobs of kangaroos. Even though this place is on a main road it's quiet. Loved this place and would recommend to anyone and definitely will return ?

    « Cosy little motor inn, a short drive to Merimbula and Pambula »

    If your looking for a relatively cheap place to rest your head whilst exploring the beautiful coastline along Merimbula, Pambula and Eden this is a good option. A few Km's south of Merimbula this motor inn is not really in walking distance to the centre but the accommodation is comfortable, with a large queen bed, air conditioning, tv, and the staff are friendly and helpful. If you enjoy Oysters and seafood there is a great restaurant next door which again is quite reasonably priced. Also just over the road is the Golf Course which is littered with Kangaroos at sunset and sunrise. There are lots of beaches to visit up and down the coastline and fishing charters can also be done.

    « Great »

    We were upgraded to an executive room and boy what welcome surprise. Large room, good kitchenette, a/c if needed (it wasn't), nice view and large TV. Everything needed for the one night stay: would happily have stayed longer. Ordered breakfast in the room and it was delivered promptly and was hot. Tasted good as well. Would highly recommend this hotel, though please note that it describes itself as in Pambula. If you are heading northwards on the A1 turn right in Pambula to get there quickly.

    « One night stop over »

    We are travelling down from Sydney to Melbourne and made this our one night stop over and was very surprised by the size of the room. It has a well stocked kitchen with kettle, toaster and microwave and also has glassware, mugs and plates etc. Which is excellent compared to our previous hotel. Also hairdryer in the bathroom and iron and ironing table which very handy for clothes when living out of a suitcase. There is also a laundry and both dryer and washing machine are usable for the sum of $3 each. After a restful night we were on the road again. Thank you.

    « Very quiet & peaceful...even though it was a busy Xmas/New Year period »

    My hubby and I stayed here (room 15) for two nights in late December. The room was clean and very spacious...almost too much room for just the two of us. Stunning gardens and pool and very quiet considering it is in the main road. Great location just outside the hussle and bussle of town. Directly across the road from the golf club. Nice little balcony to sit outside on. Bed was comfy, great little self contained kitchen. Clean modern bathroom. Little bit of a mix up with our room service breakfast but it was rectified immediately. Owners were very friendly and accomodating. We left feeling very refreshed.....

    « Lovely staff perfect room and got upgraded »

    This was a one night stop for us and we asked to get a quiet room so that we could rest as I had just had an accident and dislocated my shoulder. They were lovely and upgraded us to a spa room! The spa bath and bed were a good sent and it was very peaceful listening to the birds. Very nice experience.

    « Sleep and WiFi »

    If you like to sleep do not allow them to put you in room 9,dripping from guttering constant and counting drops will not help with sleep. believe me there is no way of fixing other than repositioning down pipe and as for paying for wi fi went out with ark just greedy

    « Decent stay in Pambula »

    Stayed here two nights whilst on business in the area. Staff were friendly upon check in, room was huge with a spa bath and clean enough. The utensils in the kitchen were a bit grubby but overall the place was ok. Tennis court was handy and we were just a short drive to to Merimbula and Pambula which was convenient. Overall a decent stay would stay again.

    « Enormous perfect room »

    We stayed unfortunately for only one night at this motel directly opposite the Pambula Merimbula Golf Club. Huge room - 8m x 5m?, very well furnished & appointed. Beautiful gardens, pool, tennis court with racquets & balls provided. Quiet and extremely comfortable. Highly recommended.

    « A good all round motel »

    I spent two pleasant nights here. My room was large with all the facilities one expects in a luxury motel. The bed was particularly comfortable. My only small criticism concerns the rather small shower space. The water pressure, though, was great. The motel is quite old but well looked after. The gardens are lovely. I found the owners/managers most hospitable. Although on a quite busy road, I had no problems with noise. The nearby golf club serves reasonable meals.

    « first class Accommodation »

    would like to say what a delight it was to stay at this BestWestern, the owners are more then helpful was a bit of confusion over the booking that was sorted, I decided to stay another night, which was no problem, they have everything you need, even breakfast delivered to you room they have a private beach, just you the sea and beach, the grounds are stunning with a pool, why not pay the page a visit see what you think. they are is stunning as soon as I drove in I was so excited, you can go whale watching depending on the time of year, you do see whales, I did, also there is at the airport where you can fly the views which are stunning,

    « Quiet, comfortable and clean clean clean! »

    If you are down on the far south coast of NSW please stay at this wonderful place. This place is set back off the main road to Pambula so is quiet and surrounded by bush. There is a great pool and the Fairway is across the road from the Golf club which serves amazing food and also next door to Wheelers seafood restaurant, also a great feed! It's a short drive into town and all the attractions of Merimbula. The owners Debbie and Peter are warm and friendly, as are all their family and staff. I have recommended this place to other travelling sales reps, never to be let down. It is quiet, conveniently located and spotlessly clean!

    « Warm Welcome & Comfortable Stay »

    Our recent visit to this establishment was our first, but hopefully not our last. The area we had stayed in previously but often noticed the beautiful location of the Fairway Motor Inn & promised ourselves to pay a visit. We weren't disappointed. The welcome was extremely friendly & advice we were offered for nearby restaurants etc was appeciated. Our room was comfortable & well appointed. Breakfast options were excellent Thank You ! We now have a Best Western Rewards Card so look forward to more enjoyable times in the future.

    « Very comfortable »

    I've stayed a few times at the Fairway and it is consistently good. The beds are comfortable which is important. The air con kept the room at a good temperature as it was very cold outside (4 degrees). Across the road is a golf course open to the public for meals and they have good value food.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    This is a fantastic place to stay, really big clean rooms, I have stayed here a couple of times and have always had a large room which is great, big bedroom, dining space, lounge space, bathroom and kitchen. The staff are friendly and welcoming, you could order room service breakfast but not dinner.
