My first time in Bairnesdale and found this motel trip adviser. Very clean and well appointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. No on site restaurant but there is plenty of places to eat near by, they do offer a great in room breakfast menu at realistic prices. Bed would be one of the most comfy ones I've slept... More

Deb and Ian the owners make this place! There is nothing to much trouble for them. Their motel is conveniently located on the highway which I expected to be noisy but surprisingly no it's quiet and cozy. There is a reason this hotel is number 2 in Bairnsdale I will be back

The hosts/owners were forthcoming with suggestions with places to eat, (there is a terrific Thai restaurant in town). The position right on the highway may put some off but the rooms were very quiet. As the owner said to me, "they sell sleep." That's a great way to look at running a motel. The rooms are what you expect in... More

The owners are very friendly and helpful, the place is immaculate and the facilities are excellent. We stayed in the 2-bedroom family unit, which was very comfortable. Third year in a row and it continues to improve. Kitchen area is great, complete with minibar and supplies. Pool is great. Good value for money. Highly recommended.

Great hotel with very hospitable operators. Rooms are getting a little tired and a couple of things need a little maintenance and decor could do with a bit of a tart up. Bathroom floor has fair fall on it and could be a challenge to anyone not wary. Other than that the hotel is clean quiet and comfortable. Price was... More

Location easy to find on the main street, single storey and car park outside room. Room was very spacious, big bathroom, everything we needed and appreciated little extras like a coffee plunger with ground coffee & proper coffee mugs (not little tiny cups). Staff very friendly and happy to accommodate additional bed at the last minute.

Friendly host, clean room, comfy bed. The common areas were pristine. We didn't have breakfast there, but the menu was vast, and the prices were reasonable. It was exactly what you would expect from a best western. Nice accommodation at a reasonable rate.

Friendly, helpful hosts. Spotless unit, well stocked mini bar and oh so comfortable bed. First time here but wont be the last. Would recommend to anyone! Close proximity to RSL Club which has a good restaurant, only 10 minute walk.
