“Lovely place!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Friendly people, great scenery (though no view from inside the rooms themselves). Very clean and spacious rooms. Only problem was the walls weren't thick or soundproof enough, so you could hear vaguely next door guests.

Just what was needed at the halfway point of a drive between Sydney and Melbourne. A bit dated but inexpensive, roomy, and clean. Real helpful fellow met us at registration and even gave us washing powder to use in the guest laundry. Couple of places to eat nearby. Coffee and tea fixings in the room. Office isn't open all night but there is a key drop if you choose to leave early.

Bottom Line: If I were doing this route again I would definitely stay here again.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not leave Eden without refueling! Petrol stations on this part of the Princes Highway are few and far between.

I liked the Twofold bay Motor Inn because it is quiet and has nice views from outside of the bay also has a toaster and kettle so good if you want to have asleep in and a light late breakfast. The rooms are spotless and staff very friendly

Room Tip: We had a downstairs room and did not even hear cars leaving in the mornings so very peaceful

Stayed here as a stop over from Melbourne to Sydney. the motel was very good value for money and certainly the best in the area for this type of budget. Room was very spacious and clean and had all the facilities you would expect i.e. TV, coffee/tea making, iron, ironing board, small dining room table with sofa. Bed and pillows were comfortable too. We did not try the indoor heated pool ( but it did look very small from looking through the window). The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Motel was very close to the killer whale museum which I would recommend for an hour.

Thanks Spencer for choosing to stay at Twofold Bay Motor Inn and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! It is a shame you didn't get to enjoy a swim, it is quite a large pool when you enter the room and the temperature is great. We hope to see you again some time.

I have a secret. I love this place. Located off Imlay Street, the motel has a magnificent view of Twofold Bay and the Tasman Sea (if only the rooms were designed so that they had a similar view). It is probably the best hotel in Eden and is certainly the most convenient, being set practically in the middle of the main drag.

The owners are very friendly and check-in and check out was easy and efficient. Rooms are spacious, relatively quiet and comfortable. There are a few quirks (decor, additional sink outside bathroom) but these certainly do not affect comfort.

I mentioned this motel is convenient. It is across the road from Eden Fishermen's Club (which offers bar, poker machines and dining facilities) and just outside the driveway is a pizza shop, Chinese restaurant and a fish shop. The museum is only 150 metres away and the harbour is just down the hill (although walking back uphill may be challenging for some).

I have stayed here on at least four occasions and have thoroughly enjoyed each and every stay.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms are probably quieter because of no through traffic. Balcony views are spectacular.

Having stayed here previously, we were very impressed with what must be the cleanest regional motel we have come across. An important issue with us.
Add to that, a pleasant reception and what appeared to be improved bedding from our visit before and we were happy campers.
Parking difficulties (long trailer) were cheerfully overcome for us and the breakfast, which proved to be good value delivered spot on time.
This is a great location for town access and just over the road is the "Fishermens club" a great, unpretentious place to dine.
The only niggle we had was our proximity to noisy others, beyond the operators control of course and would not deter us staying there(with selective positioning) again.

Room Tip: Ask to be placed away from any passing service/tradesmen groups. Applies to any motel.
