Pleasantly surprised with this motel. Exceptionally clean! Good value for money. Comfy bed. Would stay again. Being where it is, close to the highway, it is alittle noisy with the trucks in the night but as we were so tired it really wasn't a problem.

Thank you Rhonda G for your review. We are pleased that you had a good stay and found our motel exceeded your expectations. As you mentioned we are passionate about our business and find it a double edged review that your first impression was to "drive out". We are an older style motel, but feel that the initial impression is... More

Stayed here for 1 night en route from Sydney to Melbourne. One of the best 'budget' motels I have stayed in. Facilities in room were very good and bed was comfy. Bit of traffic noise, but not a real problem. Good free internet and friendly hosts. Would definitely recommend it as an overnighter.

We had one night's stay on a Thursday. The room and surrounding area was very tidy and clean, as well as quiet. Definitely an affordable price. No issues at all, so if you're looking for budget accommodation that is nice enough, can recommend. The owner was friendly and helpful. Will use again if we need an inexpensive option for a... More

Owner was extremely rude to myself upon check in. Looked at me as though he did not think I even had a reservation. After checking the room and finding there was no microwave, I returned to reception to enquire about this. I was firstly told, "Our rooms do not have microwaves and we do not advertise to have them either".... More

Thank you Jonathan B for the review. Yes, there was a little confusion when you checked in, due to the fact that the name first given on check-in was not the name the room was booked in (maybe your partner has a different surname). Details of room inclusions are listed on the site your booked through and a confirmation was... More

Stopping in on our way back to Melbourne and this was by far the cheapest of everything in Bairnsdale. Spotless room, very clean and updated bathroom, fridge, toaster and kettle or option of breakfast to room. Very impressed and would stay here again. Only downside is it's a little way out of town so drive needed to restaurants but the... More

Thank you Giggida for your review. We take pride in the cleanliness and presentation of our motel and what we have to offer for the rate. Our location is on the outskirts of town, but as you mentioned the RSL is a short walk or there are some options for meals to be delivered to your room. We look forward... More
