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!

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....

WiFi was free and very quick. The location is great, lovely walks and views, close to shops and restaurants. For a coupe... More

Just an overnighter here for us while visiting friends. We live in Gippsland and visit Lakes Entrance a bit. Booked online, rate was $150 for a studio room. Very basic but spacious room with a strange layout. Tiny tiny shower. Old looking towels, fluro lighting and double bed rather than a queen. Walls extremely thin- very noisy during the day... More
