Love the Fairway

We love it so much when people post a review on the Fairway Motor Inn's Facebook page, Google and Tripadvisor after staying with us at Merimbula, and it is an excellent way to boost our confidence and inspire us to keep striving for creating the absolute best holiday experience our guests could have!

Here is one that has made our day:

"On arrival the owners were so welcoming and helpful. Once inside our room it was spectacular everything was spotless and everything had its place. I would highly recommend the Fairway Inn. Also had the best night’s sleep we had on our travels around Australia. Breakfast was also very well presented. All there is to say is a big thank you a credit to you both for the experience." Guests from the UK


  • If you would like to share the love for Fairway, we would love to return the favour by giving you a discount on your next stay at our four-star motel halfway between Merimbula and Pambula on the NSW Sapphire Coast. All you need to do is send us a link to your review by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

What makes summer on the Sapphire Coast so special

Today (and most days this summer) we woke up early to a clear stunning sunrise, got on our bikes and crossed the road from the Fairway to the bike path that runs from Pambula Beach to Merimbula. We decided to turn left to Pambula Beach and after an easy 10 minute ride we had arrived. Sparkling water, waves big enough for surfing, paddle boarding and a refreshing swim to start the day. After our swim we rode around the corner to the cafe-restaurant Aqua for coffee and breakfast, and within an hour we were back at the Fairway ready to start our work day.

This is how those of us lucky enough to live here all summer long arrange our lives so we can enjoy the things we love about the Sapphire Coast - the outdoors, beachside coffee spots, bike paths and our pristine sapphire waters. We are having one of the best summers we can remember for many years so we have extended our 20% accommodation deal right through until the end of summer!

We have other deals available which we've listed on our packages and deals web page. Here is a quick summary of what's on offer:

  • Fabulous February 2 nights for 2 people including champagne, craft beer or cider on arrival from one of our local wineries/breweries + a bonus voucher from one of our local businesses

EAT Festival Merimbula accommodation special

Merimbula always books out fast for the Labour Day March long weekend for Victoria and the ACT, which coincides with Merimbula's ever-popular EAT Festival! The Fairway Motor Inn is in an ideal location for EAT, as you can walk or ride straight into Merimbula via the walking and biking track across the road from our entrance, and avoid all the hassle of trying to find a park on one of the busiest weekends in town! And if you are on foot, you can enjoy some of the local boutique beers, wines and spirits without needing a designated driver.


March is foodie month in Merimbula and we are excited about the EAT MERIMBULA festival which is celebrating its 11th year!

EAT is on Sunday March 10, and it's the long weekend for the ACT and Victoria so we get a lot of visitors. The locals love it too!

The best thing about EAT Festival Merimbula this year is the number of other foodie events that are happening over four days, and we recommend you getting in early with your accommodation bookings because our rooms fill fast.

You can walk or ride your bike from the Fairway Motor Inn into Merimbula to EAT, which saves you having to find a park and allows you to indulge in some of our locally grown and brewed wines, cidars, craft beers and spirits. It's a flat walk on a designated walking/bike path, and is suitable for all levels of fitness! On the bike it takes around 7 minutes.

To celebrate the 11th EAT Festival MERIMBULA we are offering a 2 nights accommodation package.
