We chose the Kingfisher on the basis of the previous reviews, all of which turned out to be accurate. The owners are charming, helpful and live on site, so they make themselves available and give the place a cheerful, bustling look. The rooms are basic, but clean and bright. The views, including the abundant birdlife and the sheep, are stunning, and breakfast on the balcony watching the sunrise, breathtaking. Highly recommended.

5 stars all the way. The Kingfisher is delightful. Views, local wildlife and beautifully maintained. The best part is the hosts, so welcoming and warm. A charming place and relaxing stay. Can’t wait to come back.

Stayed here close to New Year and was wonderfully surprised. Beautiful outlook over Merimbula, nice and quiet location, room was clean and welcoming. Had to leave early due to border closure, and Janine kindly waived the extra day that we couldn't stay, very understanding and a fantastic host.

I stayed here with my mother prior to the bushfires reaching the South Coast area, We had been advised to try the place by a lovely couple that ran the local Bakery in Alice Street, we had no idea where to stay so they directed us here. Took us back to what Seaside holidays used to be, and a delightful stay was had by all, we will definitely stay here again when we visit the area and would highly recommend the motel.

The title of this review is meant to be a little amusing - we were recently evacuated from our home (in Wyndham NSW) due to the NSW South Coast bushfires. Janine, the lovely owner of the Kingfisher, was able to find us a room for the 3 nights that we were away from home The view from our room WOULD'VE been excellent - out over the sea - but for the pall of smoke and ash from the fires. The Kingfisher is in a good location - on the hill overlooking Merimbula - has good off-road parking, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It's only a short drive into Merimbula town centre, with local cafes and restaurants (not that many of these were open due to the fires!) and there's sightseeing aplenty along the Sapphire Coast. You'll also see lots of local birdlife from your rear balcony. Room rates are good, and, as mentioned, your host Janine will take excellent care of you!!

Thank you for your fabulous review and sorry you had to experience the Kingfisher Motel due to bush fires and not the beautiful Sapphire Coast that we are renowned for.
