The Colonial in Bairnsdale is a fantastic place to stay. I stop there most time I travel from Merimbula to Melbourne to break the drive and avoid the nighttime native fauna that likes to travel across the roads at night.

CMI Bairnsdale is a nice place. Located conveniently on Main Street, close to businesses and restaurants. Staff is cheerful, helpful. Rooms are clean, spacious and neatly designed. Check IN and Check OUT is quick, comfortable. Good for Business or Personal trips.

Have stayed for business regularly over the past 10 years and with the current owners you can leave things in your room if staying more than one night as the staff is trustworthy. Owners happy to help with bill back local restaurants.
