Our stay at Merewether Motel was absolutely friendly relaxing and the best place to farewell friends and family. We wouldn’t stay anywhere else. It’s seen many owners and staff over our 40 years. The improvements only increase our love of this motel and area. Traffic noise minimal.

2 night get away
This is a basic hotel, though it hasbeen newly renovated, we got a free breakfast in the price of our stay. The breakfast consisted of toast, spread, small packet of cereal and milk. Which was filling enough for us. The only downside would be the noise from the traffic. We would recommend this hotel
