We arrived at Orbost Motel on a really hot day and upon checking in we were given an upgrade to a King suite. We were then taken to our room where the air conditioning had been turned on and it was blissfully cool! That was a really nice touch but then everything about the place had a nice touch. You...

The room was meticulously clean with everything we needed. The linen was nice and towels were soft. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Its a quiet place with a beautiful view. A country setting with modern furnishings. Everything was new! A great place for relaxation!

Booked this motel purely from the online photos and description and was not disappointed. The building is so very different from mainstream motels - you would think you were staying in the outback in an iron shed - but Surprise! the decor was stunning! It is a little out of the way - in fact we missed the turn-off and...

Great decor and room. Very modern. Friendly, helpful staff. Best place for miles around. Parking off street. Beautiful drive down to Marlo and around coast. Nice cafes in Orbost but Marlo pub is the place for dinner.

Very comfortable and well maintained accommodation. The decor has been well chosen and the room was spotless. Would highly recommend this to anyone. The hosts Laura and Luke were very hospitable and we hope to come back sometime.

It's new and clean and the rooms and bathrooms more resemble a boutique hotel. The king beds are sensational...

We stayed at Orbost Motel on our way back from Canberra, having seen great reviews for this place - we were not disappointed. We were welcomed by Laura who was so welcoming and helpful.

We decided to stay in Orbost, driving from Melbourne to Canberra. As the weather conditions were difficult, the drive took longer than expected. My husband phoned ahead that we would be arriving quite late and pleasantly was told by the owner that he would turn on the heater in our room and leave the lights on so we could find...
