Rooms were lovely, very comfy and quiet! The air con was a bit noisy, but we just turned it off when we went to sleep so no problems there. The room came with iron, hair dryer, fridge/freezer, soaps etc and was clean and welcoming. Beautiful birds were at the bird table outside which was nice to watch whilst having a... More

Staff were very helpful and obliging when we were running late upon checking out, even helped us print off some documents we needed. Most importantly, we got into Bairnsdale at about 3am and staff were extremely helpful and easy to deal with about providing us a room at that time of the night/early morning which was such a relief!

We needed a comfortable bed in a tidy room with a continental breakfast for two nights. We got what we wanted. Basic-but value for money. The location was perfect for us (2 klms. from the Table Tennis centre). Would have no hesitation in booking there again.

You really get what you pay for here. Don't come here thinking your getting a pool and room service with valet parking. What you are getting is budget accommodation which is walking distance to everything. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I booked via email, the owners always replied promptly. The room it's self is suitable for an over... More

My husband and I drove to Sydney from Melbourne and on the way we stopped at Travellers Rest Motel. The motel badly needs a renovation. To be honest we were very uncomfortable. It seemed like the room wasn't cleaned. The bed and pillows smelled old and musty. The hot/cold shower did not work efficiently.

Not a bad place to call home for a night. Clean, tidy, largish room with most things you would need. Very helpful owners and pleasant to deal with. Oldish style motel with most things fairly old in the rooms but they all work well. Shower rose lacked pressure if you needed a decent downpour from the shower rose. Queen bed... More

Extremely welcoming and obliging on arrival and throughout our 3 night stay. Not the most modern but very clean and comfortable. Shops, banks and post office nearby. Lovely walk by the river Mitchell close by. We would stay here again. Free wifi really good in room 12.

While this motel is older, it was very clean and comfortable. It appeared to have had an update in the past five years with a new vanity in the bathroom and a few other features throughout. We paid $90 which is great value for money.

Yes, this is an old Motel, but No, it's hospitality is Fresh ! We found comfortable beds for the night and welcoming service, particularly noticeable after the opposite in Paynesville nearby. Next to Police Station, in a Clean Room, #12 away from road, well provisioned bathroom, Wi Fi, door front parking, as quiet as could be, when near main street... More
