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...

Cool comfortable accomm tucked away in the country. Not your average small town motel by any means - modern decor, great beds, nice touches like Nespresso coffee in room. Friendly and efficient staff as well - couldn't ask for more for the $

We needed a motel for overnight stay, passing through on way home. Checked trip advisor and found this excellent motel, quite a pleasant surprise. Quality throughout, very modern and newly re furbished boutique motel. Top marks to the young owners who have restored this motel with top furnishings. Definitely the best motel we have stayed in. Highly recommend you check...

Quirky industrial fitout meets luxury accommodation. I really liked the mix of corrugated iron, timber and slate. Room was very comfortable, very clean and near new appliances made for an enjoyable stay. Double glazing kept any outside noise to a minimum. Will definitely be back for another visit.

This is the best motel we have ever stayed in. Very up to date. Everything in pristine condition. Just one thing, we thought it would have an oven but it has an excellent microwave and toaster. We were also given fresh milk to go with the pod coffee maker n tea.

Just far enough off the highway to be quieter than most. This is a refreshing change to the ordinary - very comfortable and clean, perfect for relaxing. Luke and Laura run an excellent motel, and are most accommodating to the traveller's needs. The breakfast too is superb!

Just off the main road, this was a lovely motel room. They have put a lot of thought into the decor and setup and it was just a lovely place to stay. Hosts were very friendly too, and just a short walk to the center of town. Would definitely stay again

There are many things that they are doing well at the Orbost Motel. They send you a welcoming email and farewell email after leaving (see below). The rooms are clean and well kitted out and look modern. The people we spoke to on arrival and departure were helpful. The air conditioning and wifi are very good. And for all these...

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...
