Continental breakfast what you would expect from a small motel and was delivered on time and with a smile. On the way back we stayed in a 'family room' which was, in... More

I stayed at the Bamboo in Lakes Entrance to attend my friends birthday party. Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. Bamboo Motor Inn is not a 5 star hotel, but, it is clean and comfortable, and very good value for money. Perfect for a weekend away!

Bamboo Motor Inn has a terrific location, within walking distance of shops and eateries. The owner John was very friendly and helpful, and that makes such a difference. The motel is no-frills but the room and bathroom were perfectly adequate and squeaky clean. Can recommend it without reservation

Located at the Bairnsdale end of Lakes Entrance's main, it's about 10-15 minutes walk from there to the other end of the town (passing all the shops and restaurants), so a good location. It's your basic sort of no frills motel that doesn't cost a lot and provides only what you need. We stayed over the Easter weekend for 3... More
