This is a motel I can neither recommend nor not recommend. This is an old motel, dating back I'd say to the late 60s or early 70s and stepping into my room was like travelling back to that time. Sure the TV was modern and it had modern heating/air con but it still felt very retro, such as the clay... More

I have stayed in most hotels in Bairnsdale but this is the one I keep coming back to. Rooms are comfortable, spacious and quite well priced, but it is the meals and hospitality I keep coming back for. They do the best steak in town by a country mile and if you are a fan of the T-bone then this... More

I have stayed here a number of times, mainly on motorbike trips around Victoria. The hosts are always welcoming and accommodating. There is secure parking for bikes, a bar area next to the restaurant to sit at overlooking the pool and gardens. The rooms are basic but clean and spacious. Bed is good. There is no street noise at all.

Apart from the good size of the room and availability for the family of four there is not much too say about the place. The toilet needs renovation. And rooms some cleaning of the webs. The place is certainly over priced.

Thanks to the staff here at the Bairnsdale motor inn for accommodating us at short notice. Clean rooms, quite spacious and handy on the other side of town. Free WiFi available if you need it, also free movies and sports channel. Recommended and do book!!

We had a family celebration to attend in Bairnsdale and normally stay with the rellies but as most of the extended family were there some of us opted to stay the night in a motel. We have stayed here before and the motel, may be a little dated,but it is very clean, comfortable and spacious and was fine for us.... More

This is a good sized room. Has a couch and table Rooms need updating mainly the bathroom and the bed head. Average cleanliness, but at least you don't feel dirty when you leave and feel safe to sleep between the sheets. We had sliding doors leading outside which was nice There was also a mini fridge. The pool looked clean... More

The food drink and hospitality are as good as you will get. The pool and gardens are exallant. The rooms are a bit dated but comfy the air con is spot on and spacious. Exallant parking off street for medium trucks. This is the place we stay during fire season. B.Crosbie Inproof Fire and Emergency Services
