Stayed overnight enroute Canberra to Melbourne and would definitely do so again. Very comfortable bed, good shower. Over-supplied with electrical appliances and the fridge was noisy but the room was tastefully designed. Our room was reasonably small so I don't think it would be very comfortable for several nights but there are larger rooms available and it was perfectly fine...

Wasn't holding out much hope when visiting Orbost. Assumed the motel would be something out of the dark past. What a pleasant surprise. Very modern, clean and functional. In fact it has the best shower in a motel I've ever come across and we all know how bad they can be. The place looked very funky and interesting on the...

My husband and I really enjoyed our overnight stay in this great little find. We had pre booked but didn't know what to expect. We had been traveling for hours and hours from our home in Central Victoria. We were welcomed with a friendly face at reception and given a jug of fresh milk in case we needed it in...

I had not considered going via Orbost to get to our Capital, however once I had found this motel it became obvious to stay away from the Hume Hwy. Strong wifi and the coffee pods were well consumed. Will do this trip again via Orbost. Or if you want a good stop over from ACT to Melbourne try this place.

We arrived at Orbost Motel on a really hot day and upon checking in we were given an upgrade to a King suite. We were then taken to our room where the air conditioning had been turned on and it was blissfully cool! That was a really nice touch but then everything about the place had a nice touch. You...

The room was meticulously clean with everything we needed. The linen was nice and towels were soft. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Its a quiet place with a beautiful view. A country setting with modern furnishings. Everything was new! A great place for relaxation!

Booked this motel purely from the online photos and description and was not disappointed. The building is so very different from mainstream motels - you would think you were staying in the outback in an iron shed - but Surprise! the decor was stunning! It is a little out of the way - in fact we missed the turn-off and...

Great decor and room. Very modern. Friendly, helpful staff. Best place for miles around. Parking off street. Beautiful drive down to Marlo and around coast. Nice cafes in Orbost but Marlo pub is the place for dinner.

Very comfortable and well maintained accommodation. The decor has been well chosen and the room was spotless. Would highly recommend this to anyone. The hosts Laura and Luke were very hospitable and we hope to come back sometime.

There's not a lot of reason to visit Orbost and most people probably stay to break up a trip on the princess hwy. if you don't mind staying out of the town centre then this motel is well worth the effort. It's new and clean and the rooms and bathrooms more resemble a boutique hotel. The king beds are sensational...
