Stayed here last August. We came back again as we couldn't pass this motel. Hospitality, cleanliness, parking & amenities are second to none. Once again I highly recommend this motel. Oh did I mention the heater was on and our room was so warm. Very much appreciated on a cold evening

We were travelling to Bairnsdale when it became apparent to us that our objective for our overnight stay was going to be achievable. So I jumped on the Trip Advisor site and looked for accommodation in Orbost our closest town at the time. The Orbost Motel came up with excellent reviews, to be truthful, we could not believe it, so...

Well appointed room, comfortable beds and convenient breakfast. An extra light in the bathroom would have been appreciated as the tiling is very dark. Ours was an overnight stay and we would return on future trips.

We booked this on our way from Marlo as a last minute decision to stay in Orbost. Staff were friendly and helpful, suggesting somewhere we could have dinner. Can be a little tricky to find in the dark but the room (& bed) was super comfortable with tasteful decor and quirky architecture. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We stayed here one night and loved it. This is a little gem and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and well appointed. It is close to the main road but you do not hear any road noise.

We had a fabulous experience, 2 adults and 2 kids in a room, plenty of space, very clean and modern. Coffee machine and toaster means you don't need to go out for breakfast. Awesome laundry facilities and a gym!! Highly recommend

So glad we chose Orbost Motel to stay in on our trip from Sydney to Daylesford. Love the decor and the king size bed is very comfy. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfy including nespresso machine. Highly recommend

We were really surprised how modern and new this motel was, after experiencing classic 70s motels previously. Was perfect for an overnight stay on the way from Sydney to Melbourne and the kids had lots of fun jumping on the beds. Breakfast was simple, nice and fresh.

After two days presenting in Sale and Bairnsdale what a delightful end to the time away Everything you need to relax in accommodation. Self contained room gorgeous king size bed well worth the extra dollars. The only thing you need transport as this accommodation is on the highway not in Orbost itself.

Thank Leanne C
