Every small town has a 60's style motel but not so many have had a charming character filled makeover as the Orbost motel. Arrived in the dark and raining heavily we were shown to a pre warmed delightful room with funky furnishings and all the required comforts. An excellent nights sleep and we woke to beautiful sunshine. Continental breakfast supplied...

Very pleasant spot to break our journey east, comfortable, well appointed and very friendly. Staff extremely helpful and assisted us with finding options for food. Well located for the passing traveller but minimal traffic noise.

This place is fantastic if you are looking to break up your journey out of Melbourne. It's around 5 - 5 1/2 hours so good stop off point. The young couple running this place have done a fantastic job doing up an old motel to a very high standard. They've thought of everything including.ding asking if you'd like skim or...

Best bed ever. Good wifi and AC. And very quiet for a motel. No pool or spa, but there is a gym. Parking lot...

This is a nice and modern motel. Good spacious rooms to a good high standard. Not a place to spend your holiday but more than good enough for a overnight stay. Easy located near the highway. But for a restaurant you need to go to town.

Omg! This young couple certainly know their stuff. They have obviously stayed at many places and know what's important to have when your staying away from home! There are not mY places I could say I'd like to stay more than one night. It this is one of them! To the incredibly warm youthful carefree welcome, then amazing interior design...

Great for an overnight stay, new funky and clean. Staff were very helpful and nice and gave me a great recommendation for dinner down the Mario Pub. I will stay again. It's a bit off the highway so is quiet too.

This is a great find. It is a terrific place to stay - clean and lots of space. We stayed for two nights. The room had everything we needed. Lots of special touches but most importantly a very comfortable bed.
