We stayed here for 2 nights in a king room which was fine, largish room. Bathroom was quite dated but a good powerful shower. Was comfortable but not fantastic, typical motel really. A good 10 minute walk to the centre.

Anybody looking to be treated like royality on a business or plessure trip away, then make sure you stay at the Colonial Best Western in Bairnsdale. Ian and Debbie would have to be the most friendly people i have met in the hotel / motel business and i have nearly 150 nights away a year with work.

The owners were very friendly and the room was comfortable and very clean. It had everything you need in a motel room and was within walking distance of the shops and great eating places. Would recommend this place to anyone and will certainly come back next time we are in the area

What was most noticeable was the close attention to detail. Everything you needed was there plus more. Kitchen facilities very good, room very clean. Owners very helpful and arranging offsite activities was no trouble. Good meal to be had at hotel down the road. Would recommend this motel to anyone.

Arrived late to find a very warm welcome. The room was spotless with plenty of space to spread out. Kitchen with microwave full size fridge, kettle and welcome tray. Loved the power shower! The location is away from the main Shops which we preferred. The pool is for quick plunge when the heat gets too much or great for small... More

A couple of klms out of town, no restaurant on site but close to the local RSL which had good value meals. Breakfast served to the room was basic but good. Found the bed comfortable and not a lot of traffic noise. Spa was... More
