We had a lovely time at the Whale Hotel. Great family room for kids and adults. Pool was lots of fun for the kids. Friendly and helpful staff. Pet friendly. Easy walking distance to all amenities. Wi-Fi was unavailable most of the time we tried to connect. Maybe due to high amount of users as the hotel was fully booked....

Have used Whale as a way point on drives to Victoria on several occasions and found it welcoming and offering good value and comfort. Renovations are progressivly refreshing rooms. Nice view up the coast and a decent pool. It's restaurant can be a mixed experience. Prices are city levels and quality should match every time. Lynch's hotel provides an option...

The Family Suite was a very nice accommodation - especially in regards to size, room layout, and supplies - for a family of four adults on holiday. The rooms were clean, and the kitchenette supplies satisfactory. Although there was no stove top or toaster oven in the suite, the Inn has a BBQ available for guest use, which was great....

The owners made us so very welcome. Even finding my bday mom some ice cream to celebrate with. Really good meals made from...

I booked through Bookings.com, and on check-in, the staff member found an inaccuracy in the booking rates - I was immediately upgraded to a Deluxe Suite, and received a refund of $30 per night for my...

Overall very happy with our stay and Tracey at the front desk was brilliant. Not a major as I would certainly stay again but I think the bed may need an upgrade. Our unit was recently renovated and was so much better than I had expected. The location is great and the view from our room was sensational (room 18)....

While the building may look a little dated, the room we had and the view were exceptional! Our room was brilliant, with a SEPARATE bedroom, bathroom, huge lounge area and large balcony with spectacular view! One of, if not the best place we stayed in on our trip. Would love to have stayed longer and just soak up the view....

Just want to share how happy we were with our stay at The Whale, Narooma. From the moment we enquired about booking a room, to the service in the Dining Room, the food, and in general the whole experience - was the best we have experienced and we do travel extensively. The price of the room was very reasonable, (a...
