Cheap room $89, was fairly central to everything. Bed not the most comfortable and heating was very old wall unit. If looking for somewhere cheap for the night would be suitable but not the most comfortable place given there are a few similarly priced competitors nearby.

Conveniently located close to everything without the noise. Rooms are clean and spacious. Owner is warm and friendly. I would definitely stay here again if I'm in this part of the world in the future.

Mid-week stay at Lakes. Unfortunately it was raining. The owner put us up in a back room. Very quiet. For the price, it was value for money. Across the road from the jetty, with boats, bird life, still water and floating restaurants. Sort stroll up the road to more places to eat. Not far from place to book boat trips.... More

I found the room to be very clean and no musty smells. I found management to be very willing to oblige my needs. I would highly recommend there breakfast, very tasty and on time to room service. I highly recommend Bamboo Motor Inn, and I am looking forward to my next visit.

We stayed here a night, and found it to be a clean and tidy room. The bed wasn't as comfortable as could be, but everything else was great. A continental breakfast included in the price was appreciated, especially since it was a two night minimum stay, but we got it for one night and a cheaper price. Conveniently located, we... More

Australia is an expensive destination for foreign tourists and the Bamboo Motor Inn was excellent value for a pit stop to indulge in associations of American motels from the movies and TV. As a place to rest for a night as part of a driving tour as we were from Melbourne to the Great Alpine Road, I recommend it without... More

I booked through Wotif with no issue: upon arrival I was pleased with the courtesty of the attendant and the cleanliness of our room - which was very quiet despite a reasonable number of bookings for the night. Good price and no hassles!

Stayed here 1 night on the way back from a recent trip to Batemans Bay, as we were travelling with newborn twins it was just a overnight stay to breakup the trip and make it a little easier to feed etc. Place was exactly what you would expect for $79 a night and didn't expect any more, place was clean...

It is always regretted if one responds incorrectly to a situation , but in mitigation I was advised that a special request had been made through Agoda in respect of the extra occupancy which proved to be incorrect. At check in we immediately gave the guest a complimentary $40 room upgrade to a family suite. When initially discussed with Agoda... More

The Bamboo Motel offers a spotless and comfortable but quite small room perfectly adequate for an "in transit" overnight stay at very reasonable rates. The motel is located on the picturesque waterfront within walking distance of several seafood restaurants and the motel owner's recommendation was helpful in choosing one for our evening meal.

Thank you for your kind review . We are delighted your stay met your expectations . Should you be passing again we have larger rooms up to 30msqu if required - I do note that we were fully booked on the night you stayed so your choice of room style was limited which can only be overcome by advance booking....

We stayed only one night on our journey from Sydney to Melbourne. The owner was very friendly, polite and helpful. The room was big and clean and cool with a nice en suit and a decent sized fridge.
