Although receptionist was very friendly, the place itself seems to have stayed in the 60's, in the bad sense of it. Moreover, it was literally filthy, the room had a funny smell, noisy and rather useless AC, and the floor was dirty. Really not a good experience. Also be advised that the motel is pretty much out of town, while... More

Nice room, the bed really king size. We stayed one night and it was exactly what we wanted. They could make an effort changing the water in the pool for those who are staying longer. It looked disgusting.

After a week of sleeping in a tent, we checked in here for a good night sleep before driving back to Melbourne. Clean rooms, friendly service, free wifi. What more can I ask for. Also, personally, having a microwave & toaster in the room is an added bonus for me. :)

My husband and I had only one night here, in late December, but found it lived up to its reviews quite well. The room was clean and plenty large and the kitchen area was well furnished. They even gave us a small bottle of fresh milk when we checked in. It is in a quiet part of Bairnsdale, which we... More

I have been staying here on a semi regular basis for work over the past 5 years, and is the accomodation of choice for my colleagues as well. For first time visitors to The Tanjil, the first thing that will strike you is the friendliness of the owners, Kim and Lindsay. There is nothing which is too much trouble for... More

There was nothing I'd fault with this motel. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the room was ideal. The bed was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was perfect. In the words of Arnie: "I'll be back!"
