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

We have stayed one night recently ... It was a very comfortable and good looking room (n.11), very clean, well air conditioned. It was a pity that was not microwave... Nice and friendly... We paid $87 We really recommend it

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. On the main road as you enter Bairnsdale and although you hear the occasional... More

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

I was booked in to the Main Motel Bairnsdale for three weeks whilst on placement at the Hospital. Whilst the room i stayed in was very clean a definite plus , i felt that having to go to the main reception on a daily basis to collect my allocated 500MB or 24 hour internet pass was an inconvenience, - the...

We are astounded to read that it was an inconvenience for you to walk 10 steps to Reception for your "FREE" internet access code. At no stage in your stay was there a discussion or issue with the amount of internet access cards issued at one time. On entering Reception and stating "my husband will be staying tonight - where...

Hotel itself wasn't too bad. Nice and clean on the inside. Other than facing the road which did lend itself to some noise as traffic went past, no real issues with the room itself. If you're planning on checking in late, however, be careful. When I rang to say we might he there around 930 I was told latest check... More

Booked by phone on route after reading good reviews on line. On arrival I wasn't sure I had made a good decision as the exterior looked quite dated although extrmely neat and tidy. However the refurbished room was perfect. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable queen size bed with good quality linen. Free wifi. Hardly heard the traffic noise even with the window... More

Decor is a bit dated, but quite clean, towels are a bit old, it would be nice to have curtains that block out the light. Friendly & helpful manager, the road noise was noticeable but overall it was an acceptable place to stay for a night.
