Great Location, great views, great staff,

Revieved by CorvettPete June 17

We stayed here as a family group and had 2 townhouses - one of the regular ones and the easy access/disabled one (which we had both halves of). The easy access one was great with a large kitchen and washer and dryer. It is quite new and had everything that we needed. The other townhouse was also good, although the spa on the deck isn't very big (it could fit 2 friendly people). There is also a large spa available for the complex which fits about 10 to 12 people and this was good. (It was a bit cold for the pool.) The staff were great - they helped us find another place in Tathra that was dog friendly for some of the family and were cheery and helpful every time we dealt with them. The place is right across the road from the beach, next to the shops, across the road from "The Bowlo". I very highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for staying with us at Tathra Beach House and thanks for taking the time to share your Tathra Beach House experience with others on Tripadvisor. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stays in both our new disabled compliant Easy Access Apartment and one of our Ocean View Spa Apartments. We are also pleased that it worked out for others in your group staying in the dog friendly house a few doors down.

Thanks again, we hope that you and your extended family will have an opportunity to return to Tathra soon.

Kind Regards

"Clean, spacious, good facilities, great location"

Reviewed by superally73  June 17 

We had a 2 bed town house apartment. Bottom level a bit chilly, wasn't used though as everything was upstairs. Upstairs heating was good. Courtyard and BBQ, nice touch would be useful in summer. Upper deck as well would be good in Summer. Two bedrooms a good size with good amount of storage. We requested 1 king bed and 1 queen which was provided although the king was too big for the room it was put in. Kitchen was fine - nice touch of having milk in fridge and ice made already. Bathroom clean - wifi good, 2 small tvs with limited foxtel and dtv. All in all a very good stay if a little pricey but it was the holiday weekend. Would be fantastic in the Summer, a 1 minute walk to the beach and cafe's, pools on site. Garage and storage for the holidaymaker. Mobile phone doesn't work in this area but they provide free landline calling and good wifi so no issue. Recommended, owners were nice too.


Hi Superally

Thank you for posting and sharing your Tathra Beach House experience with others on Tripadvisor. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us over the busy June Long Weekend. Our rates are a little more expensive over the busy holiday periods however still great value for all the features that we offer at Tathra Beach House. You may be interested in knowing that we can often offer free late checkouts, so you can make the most of a weekend away.

The Town House apartments usually have two single beds in the second bedroom however we can convert these to a king bed on request. We do have other apartment options that would have larger bedrooms with king beds, perhaps this may be of interest next time! Thanks again for staying with us we hope that you have an opportunity to return to Tathra soon.

Great Value for money, really enjoyed our stay by the beach

Reviewed February 2017 by love_weekenders

Stayed for 3 nights for a family wedding nearby, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had the 2 bedroom loft-style apartment for 2 couples. The grounds are lovely and immaculately kept. The apartment was well appointed, clean, and the bedrooms were a good size. Reception was friendly and accommodating and happy to give suggestions for things to do/see. Didn't really hear many other guests, though I know it wasn't peak season for our stay. There are a lot of stairs in the complex, so probably a consideration if you or your family have issues with stairs. The spa was great (the weather wasn't amazing for our stay), but the pool was freezing! Less of a problem when it's 40 degrees, I'm sure. Would happily stay again, though would recommend a different apartment for two couples, as the Loft bedroom didn't have a door.

Hi Love Weekenders,

We are pleased that the wedding weekend went well, March is a busy month for weddings in Tathra! Thanks for sharing your Tathra Beach House experience with others on TripAdvisor and thanks for your feedback.

While some of our apartments do have quite a few stairs we do also have other options with less stairs, our Town House Apartments are directly opposite the beach and a level walk to the beach, they are over two levels and only have the one internal flight of stairs. We also have a newly constructed “Easy Access” apartments and motel that have no stairs at all as well as being fully disabled compliant.

We have two solar heated swimming pools a heated swim spa and a hot spa pool. Our larger pool also has a gas back up heater, so I am surprised that the pool temperature was a problem especially as we have had some very hot weather. Thanks for drawing this to our attention we will check our pool records and try to work out why there may have been a problem.

For two couples sharing we would not normally recommend a loft apartment, we always recommend that our guests phone us and discuss their requirements so we can allocate the style of accommodation that best suits their requirements. We have a number of two bedroom options that can have a queen bed and a king Bed.

Thanks again for your feedback, we hope that you have a chance to return again to Tathra

Top Place to Stay in Tathra

Reviewed February 17 by TerryMcD_11

Best prize ever! Won a 2 night stay here in a charity raffle. Wonderful apartment. Superb landscaping - gardens beautiful. Everything you could want in apartment was right where it should be. Bonus was reprieve from rain yesterday morning, went for a surf at the fabulous beach. Came back & jumped in hot spa with best back massage jets ever. Staff lovely and very helpful. Recommend as top place to stay in Tathra. Really good for seniors, couples, or anyone wanting relaxing place. Don't miss "On The Perch", amazing Bird Park nearby.

Hi Terry,

Thank you for your kind words and thanks for sharing you experience with others on TripAdvisor. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay, we hope that our donation helped the Eurobodalla Botanic Gardens with their fundraising efforts, we called into the gardens ourselves the other day and thought that they were fantastic, a great thing to do for visitors heading down the coast.

We are also pleased that you enjoyed your visit to On The Perch, it is a fantastic attraction for our guests especially when the beach weather isn’t great.

We hope that you have an opportunity to return to Tathra soon.

Beautiful Beachside Rate

February 18 Reviewed by christinaidge

We were only at this hotel one night and boy do we wish it was longer. The layout is beautiful, with amazing landscaping, and just an overall nice 'vibe'. There are multiple varieties of rooms from 'motel' style (which is what we had) right up to full homes. Quite a few units even had their own garage and little backyard area. We had a nice little balcony facing the ocean and a kitchenette in the room. It was more than perfect for what we needed, even gave us a little welcome bag of goodies. Just across from the beach which was even better. The little contact we had with staff was great too. There isn't anyone on site after 6pm, but if you let them know you're arriving late they will give you a combination to a lock box where they will put all your check in information. There is also free unlimited wifi. If we didn't already have our whole trip planned we would have loved to stay longer. Best hotel yet - and the town is quaint too!

Thank you for your kind words and for sharing your Tathra experience with others on TripAdvisor. We are pleased that you enjoyed you stay.

Our late check-in arrangements work well although it should also be noted that we are usually on-site and contactable.

The motel style unit is perfect for a couple for an overnight stay, however as you suggested we also have larger selfcontaind options that are more suitable for a longer stay.

We hope that the rest of your trip went well, we also hope that you have an opportunity to return to Tathra for a longer stay.

Loved it!!!!!!!

February 2017 by Grace T

We had a short 'kid free' break and spent 2 nights in a great apartment with a spa on the deck overlooking the ocean. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well located with the beach across the road and restaurants an easy walk away. We loved both our private spa and the one in the complex by the pool. The grounds were very well maintained. We appreciated the lovely native garden which attracted lots of native birds. We also enjoyed talking to the lady in the gift shop who travels to Turkey every year to purchase new stock. We highly recommend staying here!

We are very pleased that you enjoyed our pools and gardens, this is the time of year when the birds are active around the gardens, lots of Parrots, Lyre Birds and Bell Birds, we even have a resident Bower Bird. I hope that you had an opportunity to visit the new “On The Perch” bird park while you were here.

“Great accommodation at the Easy Access Apartment”

Reviewed by kerrsofcoppins  16th January 2016

The easy access apartment is modern and very smart, with a wonderful kitchen/dining area and in the bedroom the most superb king size bed we have ever slept in. The bathroom was certainly easy access and so much room and not a step in sight. The décor was pleasant and well suitable for the seaside. The staff was friendly and everything about Tathra Beach House met our expectations. As a retired couple we really enjoyed ourselves - even in school holidays - the accommodation was quiet and relaxing. Booked to go back next January already. Nothing like having a Sav Blanc at 6 p.m. relaxing on the veranda and hearing the ocean. Rog and Rob (Sydney)

Stayed here for a week just after Xmas to the new year in a 2 bedroom apartment. Great accommodation and very clean. Staff were friendly. Pool was located near our unit and was fantastic. The best part, having the beach 50 metres from our room. It was amazing. Would definitely book here again.

This property offers a good variety of accommodation choices in a well designed, laid out and well cared for facility. There is a pool as well as 5 minute walk to the excellent beach. The rooms are of a high standard and all the grounds are very pleasant (though the constant dings from the bellbirds can be annoying!).

Just spent a very relaxing 8 night stay in one of the townhouses at Tathra Beach House and it was ideal. Location was brilliant, set just across the road from the beach with cafes,bakeries and restaurants all within walking distance. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Hard to fault!!

Hi Broapartments.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us at Tathra Beach House in one of our Town House apartments.

Our Town House apartments are popular during summer due to their close proximity to the beach, they are also a good option for guests requiring a larger apartment with a private courtyard BBQ. Having an interconnected lock up garage that also makes them popular for families with bikes, boats surfboards etc!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with others on Tripadvisor, we hope that you have an opportunity to return to Tathra soon.

It is in the perfect location at Tathra and the pool is very nice. The actual rooms etc could do with a little upgrade such as the TV is very small and was fuzzy on most channels but it didn't bother me. You might be able to get better accommodation if you rent a house there but you wouldn't have the facilities and be pretty hard to beat the location. They don't clean everyday, they leave you alone which is nice and maybe just change your towels but it is quite expensive you would think you would have a daily clean. Overall I would choose this place again in Tathra for the convenience, pool and 100% perfect location.

Hi Ashley,

Thanks for staying with us at Tathra Beach House and thanks for taking time to share your thoughts with others on Tripadvisor.

We are sorry that you had a problem with your TV, occasionally we do have reception issues and faults, when we are made aware of these problems we replace and upgrade as a matter of priority.

There are a number of large private rental houses available in Tathra that many visitors find satisfactory, within Tathra Beach House we also have options for larger properties, our large Executive 4 Bedroom Villa property has polished timber floors a gourmet kitchen, spa and many other high end features. Our brand new Easy Access property also has many high end features as well as being fully disabled compliant.

Like all coastal holiday destinations, the Christmas New year period attracts a higher tariff, rates are considerably lower later in January. Many guests who are not confined to school holidays now choose to come to Tathra in February when we usually have perfect beach conditions and around half the peak rates.

We do have motel style accommodation options where the unit is fully serviced every day, however we have found that our guests staying in Apartments and Villa options generally prefer to be left alone and just have their towelling changed every 2nd day. Of course we can arrange extra cleaning if the guest requires this added service.  

Thanks again for staying with us at Tathra Beach House, we hope that you have an opportunity to return to Tathra soon.

Just spent a week at the Tathra Beach house. One of the 3 bedroom townhouse apartments, right across the road from the beach. Very clean and neat and tidy.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. There is a kitchen with stove, fridge and cooktop, and basic kitchen needs. Was great because if you wanted to be self sufficient you could. There is also a laundry so you can wash your own clothes, and a dryer. If you want a telescope to watch whales from your balcony just ask staff and there is also a pool and spa. We could see and hear the ocean and will definitely go back again.

We spent several days here as a party of four, one in a wheelchair. The two apartments for disabled people were ideally designed and constructed, with great attention to detail. Access to all areas was trouble-free. The whole party, all involved in health care and disability for up to fifty years, were greatly impressed. Also excellent value for money.

Situated off the main highway from Bega, we opted for the scenic route which started north at Tilba Tilba. This is a must as the drive is so pleasant and the scenery is to die for. The little town is kind of in two parts. You have the town on the high hill overlooking the ocean and the motel is situated at beach level which is like in a hollow. Absolutely beautiful and scenic. The motel is very modern ( Built in 2015) with a lot of rooms which resembles bungalows but with a 21st century look. For a quiet stopover or even a long term stay, this motel is a must. It will cost you but the stay is worth it. The room we stayed in was small but perfect for what we needed. The bed was very comfy and the veranda was large enough for a table and two chairs. It's shame the view of the ocean wasn't better due to the trees but the noise of the waves is like a sleeping tablet. They did have a table and 2 chairs inside the room but they only had one single sofa chair. They offer free wifi but we couldn't access it at all. Being an IT Technician and owning my own computer business, I couldn't get it to connect. We had our own mobile internet but being down in the hollow, it is impossible to get a clear signal inside the room. Outside only gave us one bar on the signal. Drive to the top of the hill an you have full reception. The only disappointment we had was the parking. Where our room was, being right at the back, there was no parking close to us. We were allowed to drive up and unload but then we had to move our vehicle to the bottom parking area. As everything is already built, people will have to put up with this. Apart from that, an excellent motel it is and a must for everyone.

We called into Tathra as an overnight stop so opted for the Motel Unit. It was very well set up - comfortable bed and good shower. No beach view but the outlook was to the pool so that was pleasant too. Great internet service but the mobile coverage dropped out. Very friendly greeting with lovely welcome pack - biscuits, chocolate and mints! Plenty of glasses, mugs and kettle / toaster to make a breakfast with. Walking distance to beach and shops.

The Tathra Beach House is definitely THE place to stay in Tathra. It is meticulously clean, with manicured lawns and well developed gardens. Shops and restaurants are metres away and the beach directly across the road from reception. The studio rooms are adequate for a weekend stay, with a fridge and small kitchenette, but for longer stays I suggest an apartment or villa. Great accommodation in a beautiful part of the Sapphire Coast.

Very tidy place, quite and friendly staff. I stayed on my way from Sydney to Melbourne for two nights in their hotel style room. with this i thought that I was on the bottom level of the accommodation level, but i was quite surprised. Yes it is a Hotel style room, but it is large with a balcony, plenty of sunlight and clean, so i was very pleased. It looks like all the other accommodation is for longer stays, larger rooms and more resort style. The facilities looked very good, although i didn't use these as the surrounding area is too valuable not to explore.

Stayed 4 years ago & rooms & grounds still in excellent condition. TV could be a little larger in the studio rooms. Room included Mini fridge, microwave, toaster & kettle. Breakfast packs available to purchase at reception which was helpful when little is open in the winter months. I'm on the Telstra network & still little to no reception. Wifi in the room was included & worked well. Direct line telephone so family could get in touch. So peaceful listening to the waves at night. Will stay again.

We stopped here overnight en route to Melbourne from Queensland, also with a reconnaissance inspection in mind for future holidays. It is a charming place to stay with spa on the deck and heated pool and spa in the centre of the apartments for guests to enjoy. Deb gave a friendly welcome on arrival. I actually was hoping for a view of Tathra Wharf, and thought that was what we were getting when we booked, (Ichanged to a 2 bedroom apartment to get a sea view) but our apartment had a small vignette of the beach and surf. I guess that is what one gets if one says one does not want too many stairs to take the luggage up and subsequently are not staying in the higher apartments. I doubt whether these have a view of the wharf either! I ended up going up the hill to get my photo of the iconic pink wharf! We had a great night's stay apart from the awkward shower which was hot but difficult to position oneself in! Bed was very cosy and comfortable and place was spotlessly clean.

Being at the Coast looking at potential properties to invest in, we decided that we'd stay the night and take our time the following day. We found that getting a signal on Optus was near impossible and so arrived after dark at the Tathra Beach House unannounced. The reception was helpful and friendly and we were soon being directed to a one bedroom apartment (we were offered a range of accommodation types and prices). The service was very good: for example, the owner was apologetic that he hadn't been able to pre-warm the room, as he wasn't expecting us. The manager presented us with fresh milk and a treat bag and gave us directions to our room and garage. He also asked if we'd eaten and recommended places to dine. The apartment (17) was pleasing, heated up quickly and it was a pleasure to be able to cook our own breakfast before heading off in the morning. It was very clean and we thought that it was very cleverly designed to afford guests privacy as well as good facilities. It was also well-maintained. So I'd have to give it full marks Next time I'll try a bigger suite - even though there's only the two of us as a rule, as I like space and enjoy the pleasure of a new apartment to explore!

We stay at Tathra Beach House for a weekend each August for our anniversary. This has been our 4th visit and we are never disappointed. The loft apartments are consistently clean and comfortable. Staff are always friendly and the rooms warm when we arrive. Location is great, across the road from the beach and also across from the bowling club for an easy dinner. If you like walking the pathway is flat or there're ore challenging walks up the hill and down to the wharf. Also an easy drive to look around Merimbula. A great base for a weekend.

We spent 4 nights here a part of a large group attending a wedding. We saw a number of the different apartments and they all looked fabulous. The setting in the hillside was beautiful and many apartments had lovely water views. Some even had a spa on the balcony overlooking the sea. The apartments were very spacious and fully self contained. Ours had two bedrooms with a queen and two single beds. Perhaps the only suggestion would be that it would have been nice to have a king bed. Also, the apartments set into the hills involve negotiating quite a few stairs which needs to be taken into account for those with any sort of mobility issues and also for carrying luggage and groceries. There are some apartments on the ground level but I think most of those are two storeys inside so there are still stairs to negotiate. (Please check my accuracy on this if stairs are an issue.) There is also an outdoor pool and spa, telescopes, conference room, lovely gardens/paths etc. The complex is situated directly over the road from the beach and on the main street with a small group of shops. The Tathra Beach House is definitely on the list for a return visit.

We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay at the Tathra Beach House. The location is superb, literally right across the road from a fantastic swimming beach. The rooms are without fault, modern, clean and well appointed. The pool and spa area are very well done as are the gardens and general surrounds which gives the place has a relaxed tranquil feel. Not a negative but be aware that depending on where your room is there could be a fair few stairs involved to get to. I really could not fault any aspect of the Tathra Beach House and would highly recommend a stay here.
