Guesthouses and B&Bs
Camp in ecofriendly style in one of 12 luxurious solar-powered safari tents, with comfy beds, gorgeous en suites and wraparound decks. It’s set in dense bush 3.5km from Huskisson; you can borrow kayaks to paddle up the creek to the bay.
Merimbula Gardens Motel
Though there are no gardens to speak of, this old-school motel is one of the cheaper options in the heart of town. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable.
George Bass Motor Inn
An unpretentious but well-appointed single-storey motor inn, the George Bass has clean and sunny rooms. The more expensive ones are slightly newer.
Twofold Bay Motor Inn
Substantial rooms, some with water views, are the norm at this centrally located motel. There’s also a tiny indoor pool.
Clyde River Motor Inn
An older motel on the river in the centre of town, this one’s bathed in the sweet smell of jasmine. Rooms are clean and some have views.
Berry Village Boutique Motel
Large, comfortable rooms are the go at this upmarket place at the edge of the main strip. The tiny pool, just off reception, seems to work more as a water feature.
Whale Motor Inn
Spot whales from your balcony (binoculars to hand) at this upmarket motel with terrific views and nicely renovated rooms (though some of the bathrooms are a little last century). You can even make like a whale in the spa suites.
Novotel Wollongong Northbeach
Wollongong’s flashiest joint has spacious and comfortable rooms featuring balconies with ocean or escarpment views.
This complex contains the well-equipped and friendly YHA hostel, which caters to students and backpackers in tidy four-bed dorms. It’s also home to Kieraview, which has double and family rooms with verandahs and kitchenettes...
Coast Resort Merimbula
You could describe the decor of this huge upmarket apartment-style complex as ultramodern, although stark might be more apt. Still, comfort’s not a problem and the two pools, tennis court and proximity to the beach are all very appealing.
Units come with kitchens, balconies and views.
Beach Park Motor Inn
The friendly owners keep the slightly twee rooms in this white brick establishment spick-and-span. It’s in an urban setting, a short walk from the beach.
Merimbula Beach Resort & Holiday Park
Away from the town centre, but it’s close to the surf action and vistas of Short Point Beach. Choose a leafy camping spot or kid-friendly area by the pool.
Yha Wandarrah Lodge
This clean place, with a good kitchen and hanging-out areas, is near the surf beach and the bus stop. Pick-ups by arrangement or let the staff know if you’re arriving late.
Narooma Motel Yha
Although it was obviously once an old-style motel, this superfriendly establishment makes a great hostel. Each room has a bathroom for starters. Free bikes and bodyboards are the icing on the stripper-sized cake.
Wollongong Backpackers Keiraleagh
This rambling heritage house is clogged with atmosphere, with pressed-metal ceilings, roses in the cornices and festively painted rooms. The basic dorms are out the back, along with a sizeable patio and a barbecue.
