Wonderful motel. Very clean with excellent service. Great breakfast and I loved how the room was replenished with clean towels, tea, coffees etc. The mini bar was great with plenty of variety. The hot water was really hot water. Will definitely stay there next time.

Could not find the motel from the road as it was blocked by some trees until really near the property. So be extra vigilant when looking out for it. Greeted by a very friendly staff named Debby who was helpful to check online for vegetarian menu of the nearby restaurants and offered to give out passcode for free WiFi. Cabin... More

Well what a great place to rest the head. We left Melbourne in the early evening of the Friday before the Queens Birthday Weekend.

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

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.
