We love whale watching and feel blessed to live on the Sapphire Coast where there are so many whales!

  • Continental breakfast for 2 each morning during your stay

COST: $498*

More birthday celebrations at the Fairway

We’re getting so excited for our August birthday celebrations at the Fairway Motor Inn Merimbula and the celebrations keep getting bigger!

Pizza & Champagne

Due to the popularity of our weekend special on the weekend of August 20 (the 20 theme continues) we have organised a Birthday Pizza & Champagne night for our guests on Sunday August 21. It’s just $20 for unlimited pizza and a glass of champagne and it’s going to be such a fun night! Sapphire Coast Eats have been to the Fairway before with their mobile pizza oven and our guests love it!

If you would like to be part of the celebration, you can stay 2 nights on that weekend for just $220. Call on (02) 6495 6000 to book as this offer is only available for phone bookings.

If you are unable to come on that weekend but would still like to be part of all the other specials we have on offer during August, go to our Packages and Deals page and see what takes your fancy!

Birthday group enjoys pizza night at the Fairway

We love feedback from our guests and were especially thrilled to find this review on TripAdvisor! We had an absolutely fantastic weekend for this group birthday booking, and Sapphire Coast Eats brought their pizza van, we had our new outdoor heaters going and it was a fun fun night! Their visit also coincided with the arrival of new flatscreen TVs in all our rooms!

Enjoyable stay and extremely helpful
"A group of us stayed for a birthday celebration. The rooms are spacious, well appointed with minibar, bathroom and kitchen supplies and well maintained. A new wall mounted TV was installed during our stay. Debbie was delightful from check-in to check-out. She even helped babysit for us on one night. A short drive from the airport and in between Merimbula and Pambula. A great location to explore the surrounding towns. Would definitely recommend."

20 is the magic number this August

This August, 20 is the magic number for the Fairway Motor Inn at Merimbula because we are turning 20! It is 20 years since Debbie and Peter Gardiner purchased this special four-star resort-style accommodation which has 20 rooms. While we are on this theme:

  • We are 20 metres from the Pambula-Merimbula golf club
  • 20 metres from the award-winning Wheelers seafood restaurant
  • 20 metres from the ocean!

We are also 20 metres from carwash on the motel’s fourth side, which we don’t mention very often but we probably should as it is very handy for travellers at the end of an adventurous day on the NSW Sapphire Coast!

To celebrate our birthday we are offering:

  • A welcome gift for the first 20 bookings for August
  • 20% discount on ALL bookings of two nights or more during August
  • $20 return voucher for all guests who stay in August, valid for 12 months
  • $20 voucher to spend at some of our favourite cafes, restaurants and retail stores.These vouchers will be in selected rooms – make sure you check under your FOGO caddies when you arrive to see if there’s one in yours!
  • The 20th August booking will receive a special welcome pack by 4 Blue Stones valued at $200
  • And everyone who books an August stay will go into our weekly draw to win a FREE 4 Blue Stones Hamper. will announce the winners on our Facebook page on Fridays as well as contact the winners direct.

And last but certainly not least, on the weekend of August 20 and 21, we are offering a Queen or King Deluxe room for 2 nights for just $220*

  • 3 nights in a King Deluxe or Queen Deluxe room for 2 people
