Highly recommend staying at Hillcrest Merimbula
We loved our stay at Hillcrest, and also really enjoyed Merimbula. The rooms have been tastefully and comfortably renovated. The view is wonderful and the leisure facilities are excellent. We attended an in-house North of Eden Gin Tasting whilst there, food was great as was the gin. Thanks to Caspar for his helpful advice and a great stay.
