Description

The space

Located in Merimbula, an ideal destination between Sydney and Melbourne, and only 2.5 hours from Canberra.
Wandarrah Lodge ,is just that, a lodge/hostel NOT a motel.
Our style of accommodation could be described as "glorified camping", so if 4 or 5 star is your preferance, Wandarrah Lodge will probably not be a good fit for you.
We aim to ensure our guests enjoy a good nights sleep without disturbance.
Wandarrah Lodge will not tolerate anti social behaviour from guests.This includes both groups & individuals and WILL result in eviction of the individual or group without refund.
There will be no warning given.
The building is protected by a back to base fire monitoring system.
Our main points of difference to motels are the option to cook your own meals in our communal kitchen, thereby extending your holiday budget. There is the opportunity to interact with fellow travelers in our dining /common room or share a game of pool or table tennis. Tea & Coffee is supplied.
While we don`t have spa`s and flat screen Tv`s in all the rooms (or any rooms in fact;) we do provide clean budget priced accommodation in a friendly & welcoming atmosphere. And yes, guests do make up their own beds with our freshly laundered linen that is included in the room rate. There is also free wireless internet access throughout the property.

There are many world class walks including the "Light to Light Walk" (Ben Boyd National Park) & "Kangarutha Track" (Bournda National Park).Pick up & drop offs can be arranged if required.
Our communal kitchen & common room is a great place to prepare your own meals should you wish or meet up with other travellers and swap experiences.Exclusive use of Wandarrah Lodge is also available subject to availability.
Wandarrah Lodge is a modern, clean, family-owned Lodge only 150m to the beach and lake. Hand-feed lorikeets, play pool or table tennis, enjoy a BBQ. See dolphins and kangaroos at the nearby beach or learn to Stand Up Paddle @ sunrise on our pristine lake.For the more adventurous why not take a lesson in Kite boarding with Peter O`Keefe from South Coast Kite boarding who will guide you thru all aspects of this adrenelin pumping sport .Easy flat walk from lodge to cafes and shops in town.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! Regardless of the room being outrageously overpriced for what is effectively a glorified prison cell (even have to make your own beds), Wayne is an aggressive, angry old man who tries to rip off young travellers at any given opportunity. Upon waking up this morning he summoned me to the kitchen and aggressively told me that he has already told airbnb to fine me $80 because he found one pan which had slight food residue from the night before. (It had been washed up just clearly not as thoroughly as expected). When I refused he started getting aggressive and swearing. He claims the €80 fine is because it took him 2 hours to clean the kitchen, which is as well as being a blatant lie as we wiped down the surfaces, could also be as a result of any other guests in the hostel. Bearing in mind we pay a mandatory cleaning fee when booking the property through air bnb, if there happened to some mess (which is not uncommon in hostels), then this should be covered by this fee. Not the sort of environment holiday makers want to find themselves in.

The host provided basic accommodations including a kitchen and washer/dryer (with coin payment). Owners were friendly. Hostel style amenities so good for folks traveling on a budget.

We had a wonderful stay with Wayne and Betty. The rooms were spotless and the beds were comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed the community kitchen where we met some wonderful people. Despite the lateness of our arrival, our hosts were very helpful and friendly. A big thank-you!

Comfortable stay! Wayne and Betty were quite accomodating as we arrived really late and left clear instructions with a torch for us.

We'd booked an ensuite room but a mix up meant it wasn't available when we arrived. We were refunded the difference & our room was close to the bathrooms so it wasn't too much of a problem. The room was clean & we had access to the communal kitchen which was very well equipped. This property is close to the beach & there is a great cafe/bar about 50m up the road.
