4/10 Fair

Location great but the unit itself was run down in the outside areas and was dusty inside. Electrics short circuited and no extra blankets for beds. We were granted an early check-in which was great but tried to make contact over the weekend with phone calls and messages and received no reply.

Window dressings falling apart. Apartment was quite dirty and dusty. Location was great. No wifi was disappointing. With more TLC it would be a great place to stay.

Great Location but very tired
The location is great! Easy walk to the park, beach, shops and restaurants. We first stayed at Penguin Mews in 1990. Sadly nothing has changed. The units, outdoor area and gardens is in desperate need of some tender loving care and upgrade. We enjoyed our stay as we love Merimbula but I suggest put some nice finishing touches into the units to make it memorable. The bathroom needs replacing. It’s the original from the 80’s There do not have a manned office so speaking to someone was a challenge.

8/10 Very good

Great spot for walking to the water, shops and cafe's, RSL and saphire club. Bit noisy on the saturday night being so close to town. We had to request the single beds be made up for us as they had not been changed however which under any circumstance is not OK.

6/10 Good

General shrubbery needs a good tidy up to improve parking access. TV does not pick up HD channels. Manager was not in attendance during posted times, and had to be phoned to release keys etc. No spare toilet rolls. Great view, and easy walking to shops, Club, and food outlets. Quite private. Ants were on almost all tables, kitchen benches, and bedside tables. TV remote in poor state.
