Historically and architecturally, the Merrijig Inn is a very significant building; in fact, it is one of the oldest surviving hotels in the state. Originally constructed in 1845–47, it has survived fire, closure and use as a police barracks and government offices. Its simplicity of form is more in keeping with early colonial buildings in New South Wales and Tasmania. Nestled on a grassy rise overlooking the Moyne River and the historic working dock, the heritage inn offers comfortable B&B accommodation in four large rooms with ensuites, and in four cosy attic rooms. The conservatory is a light-filled sunny spot to savour the lavish breakfast menu. An in-house restaurant is open Monday to Saturday for dinner.
