As I travel a lot of work this place has become a regular for me. The staff are always accommodating and the food and service is always fabulous. The rooms are nothing fantastic. Just basic motel style but functional and apparently still the best in town. They do an awesome breakfast and have a new dinner chef who is wonderful. They will try and accommodate your needs. This place is very busy with other business people but that is also part of is charm for me. I've done some fantastic networking in the carpark. Fabulous country hospitality. Thanks guys.

Room Tip: Gets cold in winter make sure the windows are shut as I think they try and keep them open to air rooms.

Have stayed here a before and thought I'd try it again. Unfortunately I have been disappointed. The rooms are OK, however cleanliness is not top of the managements list with cobwebs on bathroom walls. Carpets and bedspreads are all too old.
Biggest disappoint was the restaurant. I sat down for dinner to a table set incorrectly. Clearly the waitress had little customer service experience, however showed some skill as she made up excuses for the lack of available menus items and the lack of a wine list (cask wine by the glass only and a very limited selection of bottled).
Meal was very average.
All in alll, with just a little work, the whole experience could have been so much better.

This Motel was of better quality than the one we slept in for the previous two nights elsewhere on our way to Bega.
and we paid less for it.

This Motel deserves to have its rating removed, having stayed here on the 9th of March I am very disappointed with a lot of things. 1. The service at check in was bordering on rude , should have left then. 2. The room was dirty , floor unvaccumed and very stained . 3. Fittings in bathroom broken and dirty.

Begadowns, Owner at Bega Downs Motor Inn, responded to this reviewResponded April 23, 2010

Records indicate there was only one guest with family on the night.

PMS notes on this booking indicate some issue with credit card - tpically this is when guests do not wish to supply a credit card.

Rooms are vacumed every day.

18th March, AAAT carried out an extensive propertry inspection lasting two days. This inspection identified there were no issues with fitting or fixtures.

Property has consistently achieved a very high 4 Star Rating score.

If guest had notified office, room would have been re-service or guest moved to another room.

Bega Downs Motor Inn is a well maintained basic Best Western motel. It has a good location just off the Princes Highway and an easy stroll into town. The on-site restaurant was quite good with pleasant service. Really appreciated the free access to washing machine, dryer and clothes line. They were also very prompt in allocating Frequent Flyer points.
Had a comfortable overnight stop here.
