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...

Stayed here overnight found the room to be very comfortable and the owners friendly and helpful. En-suite with hair dryer, queen size bed, colour television, toaster and kettle provided. Microwave and wash up sink in a shared kitchen area among the units.

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.

Very impressed with the friendly manner of the Manager, told us about the best dining places to eat as well as nearby attractions. The room itself was very clean and cosy, everything we needed for our comfort. The shower was wonderful and hot, comfortable bed, great garden, could not fault this Motel. We will be back.

I stayed here for 2 nights which was quite enough. I couldn't fault the room for the price; it was certainly very clean and looked like it might well have been decorated very recently. However, the main negative point was that although the motel is set back a bit from the main road it was very noisy until about 2... More

We are sorry to hear that your stay was disrupted by traffic noise "TabSuffolk". As most motels are built on major highways / roads to attract guests, traffic is beyond our control. On saying that, a major percentage of our business is from repeat guests. Your comments about our relief Managers have been noted, however, they were the previous owners... More

This motel is fantastic. It's not fancy, it's not luxurious, but for for the price it cannot be beat. The rooms are well cared for and spotlessly clean. I have stayed in far more expensive hotels that are not this well taken care of. The owner/operator seems to really take pride in his work. He was exceptionally helpful and accommodating... More
