    The wandarrah lodge is a really nice place to stay in merimbula. It's very close to the city, the lake and the beautiful beach. The owner is very very nice and helpful. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the best places to eat or visit. The establishment is very clean and the kitchen has all the utilities you could ever need (BBQ, toasters, waffle maker, compost, lots of cooking utensils etc.) The common area is also very nice and relaxing, with couches, tv, radio, pool, aquarium, etc. Throughout the hostel, there are many information documents about Australia and the area. Would definitely recommend!!!

    Wonderful stay!

    We had a great stay, Betty and Wayne were lovely and so accommodating. Facilities were always clean and our room was very spacious. It is also located right near a great swimming spot called mitchies jetty and also Merimbula Main Beach. We would definitely recommend and can’t wait to stay here again!

    Great place!

    Wayne was fab at being flexible for me as I was traveling by bus so arrived just after the check in time. The room was lovely and clean and the kitchen facilities were very large. Also have a lounge to watch TV with others which adds a nice touch! Would stay again for sure.
