Stayed at the motel mainly for the restaurant attached which serves the best T-bones in Bairnsdale. Owner is very friendly and likeable and almost can't do enough. Rooms are clean and neat though the bathroom was a little small for two people but thats a minor problem

Whilst the motel is not new, it is in a very good clean well appointed condition & is run by such a friendly family who make you feel so welcome & are so helpful. The motel is in a good position for any area of the town or travelling through & is also very quiet. The restaurant (also has room... More

Stayed one night and found this motel comfortable with little highway noise . All the amenities needed for a decent one night stay and the owners were friendly . Twin room was a reasonable size and clean . Would stay here again.

If you are seeking modern, neat accommodation close to eateries or any form of entertainment give this one a miss. We were informed on check in that the motel restaurant is closed over the Dec/Jan holiday season which leaves limited eating options after a long trip. The host was quite lacklustre and uninformative when asked about suggestions for alternate restaurants.... More

One night stay to get our car fixed. Lovely lady at reception BUT the shower was worst we have ever had for $140. Kept going hot and cold. Very hot then cold. Not a good experience. No information in the room of any kind. Very poor. Only one glass, TV fixed to wall so could not angle and very average... More

I read some reviews and was surprised, i had a huge work and travelling day and a client in Sale suggested I stay here, I've stayed at many places in Bairnsdale but never here before, so it was just a "Drive-In" choice and all good, my room was just great, reading past reviews it's obvious it didn't relate to the...

This is a motel I can neither recommend nor not recommend. This is an old motel, dating back I'd say to the late 60s or early 70s and stepping into my room was like travelling back to that time. Sure the TV was modern and it had modern heating/air con but it still felt very retro, such as the clay... More

I have stayed in most hotels in Bairnsdale but this is the one I keep coming back to. Rooms are comfortable, spacious and quite well priced, but it is the meals and hospitality I keep coming back for. They do the best steak in town by a country mile and if you are a fan of the T-bone then this... More

I have stayed here a number of times, mainly on motorbike trips around Victoria. The hosts are always welcoming and accommodating. There is secure parking for bikes, a bar area next to the restaurant to sit at overlooking the pool and gardens. The rooms are basic but clean and spacious. Bed is good. There is no street noise at all.

Apart from the good size of the room and availability for the family of four there is not much too say about the place. The toilet needs renovation. And rooms some cleaning of the webs. The place is certainly over priced.
