My wife, disabled son and myself stayed at the Colonial on a recent road trip through Victoria. We were so lucky to have selected this motel. Ian went out of his way to make us feel welcome and to ensure that the room met the needs of my son. We have never had such great service. I would recommend this... More

Had the pleasure of staying at the Best Western Colonial Motor Inn in Bairnsdale for an average of four nights for each of the past six months. Rooms and beds are good quality with everything you need, Motel is well located - walking distance to the RSL and a great Vietnamese Restaurant. A short drive to the town centre. Hosts... More

This place is comfortable, clean, affordable and very functional. The owners are so accomodating and helpful, I feel very safe and welcome every time my family stays. The location is walking distance from the centre of Bairnsdale, which is very convenient. The kitchenette in the room makes travelling and feeding children easy to do.

Location and facilities were fantastic. Walking distance to the shops. Our family suite was spacious, well appointed with a good size kitchen and lounge area as well as two separate bedrooms. Nice touches with quality toiletries and biscuits. The cleaning staff are very particular and do an excellent job. The owners were very friendly. Would highly recommend and would definitely... More

The welcome on arrival was warm however I will not return to this motel. The rooms are cleanish - numerous long dark hairs on the bathroom floor, but dated and uninspiring, couple this with a truly awful bed and the value equation isn't there. I'll be trying somewhere else next trip.

The staff were helpful from the time that we arrived - the motel is walking distance to the shopping centre and is nice and quiet - we would stay there again - thank you .The area has so much to see and do it is well worth the drive from Melbourne .

As a regular traveller this was the first time I have stayed here and I was very satisfied with this motel. The rooms are of a good size; likewise the bathroom and both were presented to the usual Best Western standard. While it is on the main road, I didn't find road noise to be an issue. My room had...
