5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Ours was an overnight stay, but we visit Bairnsdale two or three times a year. Having stayed in other local motels, we will come here again. Although our room was facing the main street, the soundproofing was good. Very little traffic noise noticeable. Inside was clean and comfortable. Space for three adults. Often when motels book for 3 adults there are beds for 3, but the rooms are set up with 2 chairs, towels, milk, even cups, etc. This room was well set up with three of everything. Well Done. Thank you.

Friendly folks running this place. Big, clean room and a very comfortable bed! Nice kitchenette and a lovely little spot out front to sit and eat. Bathroom was spacious, and the shower was great, lots of hot water and good water pressure.
