We drove up and thought maybe not due to age of property. Boy we were suprised by the owners friendly greeting, the cleanliness, and quality of this property considering it was only $95.00 per night. If only these operators were in every motel we stay at as we have been paying far more for far lesser motels.

Unfriendly, pointy and uptight staff. Once you arrive they will give you a bottle of milk that they refilled by themselves, don't know how that compiles with health standards. For 95$/night, I'm sure you can find a better place in Bairnsdale, that will at least welcome you. I'm not going back again!!

Firstly we must apologise to you "Emad S", as offering you fresh milk on your late arrival seems to have offended you. Most guests appreciate fresh milk on arrival. Staff were very obliging by keeping the office open after hours to accommodate your late arrival, as you knew of the no late check-in policy when the booking was made. Maybe... More

Well presented rooms, comfy beds, quality towels, large TV, foxtel, real milk and decent instant coffee! Very comfortably reasonably price motel I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone traveling through Bairnsdale. Very... More

This motel is a little pearler! Older style looking from the outside but gardens and surrounds beautifully maintained. We had a standard queen size room which had been tastefully redecorated and the bathroom renovated. Bed had electric blanket and all linen was crisp and fresh. The bath towels were so soft! The cupboard containing kettle, toaster etc is above the... More

Excellent price for the room, home away from home, shower is invigorating and hot. Very comfortable bed, electric blankets to warm the sheets and a quiet in room split system air conditioner to warm the rest of the room. Minutes away from all restaurants or shops.

We had booked this online in desperation, just to ensure that we had all nights booked for our ten-day driving holiday. This was to be our last night in Victoria and, despite some of the negative comments about this property, we were trying to save money and got a room deal for 3 persons for $108. Great deal ... but... More
