Great cosy Motel, with great hosts, who genuinely want you to have a memorable stay in their town. Great breakfast, with plenty of restaurants and hotels nearby for dinner. Great base to see Gippsland.

We stayed in a double room which was clean & comfortable.The kitchenette was handy. Bed was too firm for our liking & there was no spare blanket to use if cold but plenty of pillows. Would have liked confirmation of our phone booking prior to arrival. No WiFi code was given on arrival. Overall the room was very good

We had a two night stay at the Colonial over the last weekend. The establishment is so clean and comfortable. No noise, clean luxurious bed with lots of little add ons to make our stay just so great. the pool looked so inviting I was disappointed I forgot to pack our swimwear. The kitchenette was a welcome extra since we... More

We have now stayed twice at the Best Western Colonial Motor Inn, and we will be back! Lovely friendly staff who looked after us so well. The rooms are very homely, the beds are comfortable, the kitchens (complete with sinks) are so convenient, and the bathrooms are spacious!

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.
