Meroogal House museum is 15 minutes from the Anchor Bay Motel

Meroogal, in the South Coast town of Nowra, was built from 1885 to 1886. This delightful timber house, with its ‘gothic’ trimmings, is a charming testament to early days and early ways.


"Lovely in every way"

We booked for one night as part of a weekend away from Sydney. After a day on a motorbike, we were very tired and ready for a hot shower. Rob welcomed us with open arms, instantly making us feel at home. He helped us with dinner recommendations and local sites.

"“Great Place To Stay”"

We were on the road and just looking for a place to hang our hats for the night. We found Anchor Bay Motel via the internet and gave them a call. Rob made our after-hours check-in so easy that I felt compelled to visit reception in the morning to thank him personally. After a wonderful night's sleep in a comfortable bed, it was great to put a face to the name. The motel is located right on the point so, being an early riser, I managed to get an enjoyable walk and take a few photos of the picturesque sunrise before hitting the road again. I'd gladly stay here again!!

Nice people & clean rooms in a good spot. The upstairs rooms have a view so we paid the extra & it was worth it. There was a balcony to sit out on & we were given lots of helpful info on great beaches to visit. Would stay there again. Rod D

"Very good Value, exceptional Scenery, wonderful Owner"

We have spent my partner and me a night at Anchor Bay Motel. We were on a kind of short road trip around. And I found it on TripAdvisor just close by we have stopped. I was so amazed with comments about the service and value that we both were excited to try it. And we have not been disappointed....
