“Good stop over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

We found this motel on tripadvisor when travelling up the coast and in need of a stop over.
It deserves all the good ratings! clean, modern, comfy and a nespresso machine!
Very friendly, enthusiastic staff.

This small country motel deserves it good reviews. We arrived here after a long drive from the Hunter Valley and were pleased we had driven the extra distance to stay here on our way to Melbourne. The room had everything we needed to relax after a long day. The coffee machine was good and there were comfortable chairs to relax. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. the young owners have obviously worked hard to earn the positive reviews.

We were just passing by on our way to NSW from Melbourne late on Friday evening and didn't want to drive through the night, so we booked a room at the Orbost Motel. It was fabulous! The rooms were nicer than most of the top end hotels we have stayed in around the world and so clean! I've never seen such a clean room! The room was warmed up for when we arrived late in the evening and the lovely ladies standing in for Luke and Laura for that week were just so nice. Made me wish we would have stayed longer :) Thank you so much for such a nice experience, something we definitely had not expected to experience in Orbost.

The one night we spent here was a haven of quiet restfulness. Owned by 'youngsters' Luke and Laura, this boutique motel presents an ultra modern face with every appliance (frig, m/w, toaster, jug, Nespresso machine with free pod) gleaming and spotless. The king size bed and pillows were so comfortable, we were tempted to see if we could stay another night but we had to be an in Pambula Beach that day. The delivery of our breakfast the night before in sturdy white bags (plentiful cereal, a selection of breads for toasting, butter, marmalade, etc) was quite unique and kept everything fresh while jugs of light or full cream milk had been placed in the frig. Room temperature was regulated with an in room remote - virtually noiseless, thank goodness. The bathroom was large and my husband made use of the spa bath and shower in the morning - plenty of hot water, fluffy towels and the usual toiletries. We'll certainly stay here if we head for Orbost again, so definitely recommended.

What a find, a great motel. Has all the creature comforts and a really lovely motel room that sees modern chic meet country charm. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully clean. One of the best country hotels I have stayed at. The staff where very friendly and welcoming.

this was a lovely find. A great place to rest up after exploring Croajingalong and Cape Conran. The presentation was different, clean and a comfortable bed. The staff were helpful and the local Chinese restaurant yummy. Would be good to bring canoes and spend time exploring using this as the perfect place to come back to.

The Orbost boasted an incredibly friendly and helpful staff and top quality motel style accommodation. They are pet friendly and didn't make a big deal of it or ask for extra money to have our dog stay with us. The only reason they don't get 5 stars is because the corrugated iron, while seriously cool, makes for a noisy bed and the fridge is out in the open and kind of noisy too. But that wouldn't stop us visiting again and enjoying the great room, shower and coffee facilities! Thanks guys!
