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.

The Orbost Motel is a clean and comfortable Motel. It is modern, the beds are comfortable and it has all the mod cons of a Motel room. The staff were friendly and helpful. The position of the hotel means that you need to get in your car to travel to eat. The Motel was easy to find and we would...

Stopped here overnight on our way to the NSW coast. It exceeded expectations. The owners were lovely. The room was perfect and very well fitted out. Beds were very comfortable with high quality linen. A great relief to have an Nespresso machine for morning coffee too. Wifi was a god send. If only other small town motels would follow the...

The Orbost Motel was built by owners Luke & Laura 6 years ago to their own design. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there are free laundry facilities which is really helpful when you're on the road.

On the highway set back at the end of town. An unusual boutique Motel with walls and interior constructed of corrugated iron. I reported a security issue with a window unable to be locked. I understand this is a quiet area with not breaking issues. But for effective front door locks the other entry point should be sound for full...
