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

These motels just exhibit years of neglect and it shows to the nth degree with gaps in the room entry door , no security to speak of , dated decor and furniture , stained and worn carpet , toilet positioned right at the doorway so one could not...

I've stayed in motels all over Victoria. What makes this one special is the caring and friendly hosts. Recently when I had a car accident in the middle of the night. I was able to organise a room in the middle of the night, no problem. Get a late breakfast, no problem. Then the next day the owners volunteered their... More

We stayed for one night on the way to Phillip Island. Very friendly family run motel and restaurant. Rooms are clean, spacious and quiet with all the usual amenities. Restaurant is excellent with a wide selection of meals. Offsite secure parking. A correct photo of the Motor Inn is attached.

Firstly, I would like to say the picture posted on tripadvisor is incorrect...I think it is in New York given 2 of the 4 reviews are about a motel near Manhattan ! Go figure. It was a long w/end and we were traveling from NSW South Coast to Philip Island...hence overnight stay in downtown Bairnsdale. Our late check-in was meet... More
