We stayed at the Main motel in Bairnsdale, our room was right on the highway so a little noise. The room itself was very clean and spacious if a little dated. The toilet was a bit noisy and had water flowing which caused some noise. Overall a good place to stay if on a budget as rates are very cheap.
Owner Matt was very polite, helpful and friendly, the Lady Cleaner went out her way to see if we needed anything everyday we stayed at the Motel, she was very helpful polite, courteous, professional and an extremely hard worker which make our very pleasant. The Motel room was clean, had a great shower- best on the trip so far, hairdryer, electric jug, toaster, very basic eating utensils, The motel has a bbq area but lacks not having a microwave. The bed was very comfortable and clean.
Bairnsdale Main Motel is obviously on the main street but a bit out of town as a phone call revealed. It’s about 2 km from the station so a taxi or a friend with a car is required. The area is essentially industrial. The motel is opposite Bunnings and there are car yards on both sides. Outside there is garden and BBQ area. The RSL is just a short walk away. Matt left my room open and the key inside. I settled in to a comfortable room. The fridge had milk and cold water and there was the usually tea, coffee and biscuits. I had to get Matt to show me how to reset and manually use the TV because, as often at home, the remote had flat batteries and was a bit dodgy anyway. The air-con was effective. The main road is busy during the day but at night only the odd truck can be heard. The double bed was comfortable and in the morning the shower was efficient. Before checkout Matt came around with a hand held device so I could settle.…
I've been a regular over the years with different owners travelling for work. Trucks can. Can be a little noisy when they travel past but is not a big issue. Place is always clean and tidy. Owner very friendly and helpful with anything you need. Located close to centre of town. Highly recommended.
Lovely meal, with friends. Nice atmosphere. Food well presented fresh and tasty. Good venue for groups. All food came out at the same time. This is one of the oldest pubs in Bairnsdale, it has been tastefully updated.
Adequate accommodation but needing a good clean. Large cobwebs hanging from ceiling. Dirty floor in bedroom and bathroom. Blanket needing a wash. Shower good. Room right next to A1 Highway with trucks roaring through all night long. If you are sensitive to noise at night this is not the place for you.
Spent one night here on our drive from Melbourne to Lakes Entrance. Very friendly staff. Arrived after 5pm and reception wasn't open, but a note left telling us where our key was. Parked straight outside of room. Two double beds, TV, fridge and a bathroom (moderate size) was value for money. Clean and neat. Couldn't get the wifi working. Paid via Amex via booking.com but that payment wasn't processed and next morning owner turned up with credit card machine explaining payment hadn't gone thorough. No drama. Bit noisy next morning from back of motel, but apart from that a good stay. Would recommend.
Recently stayed here for 4 nights and during that time the room was not serviced at all. Most of the time there was nobody at reception. The shampoo dispenser in the bathroom was empty. On the second day we rung a number that was given to us when we first arrived and was told the room was probably not serviced because the cleaning staff would not have wanted to disturb us! The water was very slow to go down in the shower so I guess they had a drainage issue.
I have stayed here twice in the last couple of months due to my poor mum being to and from hospital stays. Both times I booked at the very last minute and I was greeted warmly by lovely people who went beyond what was necessary to make my stay easy and comfortable. The rooms are clean and comfy, which is exactly what is required from a motel. Excellent value for the price.
I haven’t been here for a long time, new eclectic but interesting decor, quieter than other hotels. We needed a quick dinner before a show, the staff were great, helpful, attentive and smiling. Meals were on the large side but well cooked and presented. The duck salad was maybe a little sweet but flavoursome. Fish n chips tasty, large steak cooked “rare” as requested, served with good chips. Timing was good, plenty of time to eat before we had to leave.
