Comfy clean rooms, with good level of equipment, and a very functional kitchen. Add a great selection choice from breakfast with accommodating times to eat for the early starter made... More

My husband & I spent only a night on our way home to Merimbula but were very happy with our stay. Very clean and spacious room and surprisingly quiet bring on the highway. Plunger coffee and real tea with a pot were among some of the homely added extras. Owners were very friendly. Would highly recommend this Motel when staying... More

My wife and I spent 1 night only but would have loved a second. Although the Motel is on the main Highway through town we were in Room 5 - the first room set back from the front. Either slow traffic through town, or the setback meant silence at night. Room was spacious and clean, with a very comfortable bed.... More

I stayed here for a work trip last night, after a long 4 hour drive I was greeted with the friendliest business owners & a super clean room. My breakfast arrived right on the time I asked for it, and the eggs were cooked to perfection. This will be the only place I stay on my trips to East Gippsland.... More

Work related business trip and first time stay at the Colonial Motor Inn. The owners were very friendly, helpful and could not do enough for you. The room was clean, comfortable with all amenities. Loved their Boxer dog who was very quiet. I wish my dog was as well behaved! Great breakfast and look forward to the next visit.

We were late to the hotel that day and called reception. A nice man provide the room numbers and leave the keys in our rooms. In the next morning, his wife also provided the useful restaurant information for the breakfast with the beautiful sea view near Gippsland Lakes Yacht Club. Family room is very clean.
