We stayed here for two nights, and although it was only a basic hotel, the price was right. Only good if you are passing through, as there is not much there, no swimming pool or any thing like that, but comfortable enough.

Gentleman who checked us in was friendly and helpful which is always a nice start. We stayed overnight in a standard queen room, the bed was very comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. You hear a bit of traffic noise being near the main road, but didn't bother us at all, have stayed in much noisier motels. A few... More

This little motel is on the highway right at the southern end of Bairnsdale, so if you are coming from Melbourne it's just as you enter town, next door to the Hyundai dealership. If you are coming from Sydney,drive right through the town and its on the right hane side at the end of town. We stayed one night but... More

Great place to stay with very comfortable rooms at a very reasonable price. We will definitely stay there next time. Just a couple of minutes from the centre of Bairnsdale so close to everything,without the hustle and hustle. Best of both worlds.

Simply searched for the cheapest motel and then read the reviews on this one, thought id take a chance. And not disappointed! Old exterior and very quaint modern yet simple interior. Staff where very helpful and we had a good nights sleep. The highways a little noisey but you get that with motor inns and prime locations

I stayed here overnight before driving up the Great Alpine Road. The hotel is located on the main street in Bairnsdale, close to plenty of restaurants and pubs. The room itself was spotless, one of the cleanest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend.

We drove up and thought maybe not due to age of property. Boy we were suprised by the owners friendly greeting, the cleanliness, and quality of this property considering it was only $95.00 per night. If only these operators were in every motel we stay at as we have been paying far more for far lesser motels.

Unfriendly, pointy and uptight staff. Once you arrive they will give you a bottle of milk that they refilled by themselves, don't know how that compiles with health standards. For 95$/night, I'm sure you can find a better place in Bairnsdale, that will at least welcome you. I'm not going back again!!

Firstly we must apologise to you "Emad S", as offering you fresh milk on your late arrival seems to have offended you. Most guests appreciate fresh milk on arrival. Staff were very obliging by keeping the office open after hours to accommodate your late arrival, as you knew of the no late check-in policy when the booking was made. Maybe... More
