Finding the Best Hotel for Your Holiday


Of all the cities and towns in the East Gippsland area, Bairnsdale is the biggest, which means there are plenty of hotels, cottages, camping grounds and other lodging facilities to suit the needs of any traveller. But how do you decide which accommodation is right for you? We have some useful tips to assist you in selecting accommodations or hotels in Bairnsdale to ensure you find the place best suited to your needs.

What to Look for in a Hotel

Whether you're on a backpacking holiday through the lakes area or are seeking a luxurious resort stay, choosing the right accommodation for your travels can make or break your entire trip. You want somewhere safe, comfortable, and with the right amenities you'll need throughout your visit to Bairnsdale, Paynesville, and the rest of the Gippsland Lake region.

When looking for hotels or wherever you might stay, keep the following things in mind:

  • Location of Accommodations- If you plan on touring throughout the entire area of the Gippsland lakes, you want somewhere centrally located that allows frequent comings and goings. Or if you plan to stick to one area or are visiting specifically for a certain attraction, you can pick somewhere closer to the main centre of activity so you can return quickly to your hotel or resort for rest or a break.

  • Amenities- if you're travelling with children, you may want to check if the hotel or resort has a swimming pool or playground that will keep them entertained. Or if you're a business traveller, check resort WiFi services or other secretarial services that can help you conduct your business. If you can't bear to leave your furry friends behind, look for pet-friendly resort or hotels.

  • Value/Cost- Expense is an important consideration when planning a holiday and choosing accommodations for your stay. If you own a caravan or camper, campgrounds can offer savings and you can utilize your equipment. If not, search for package deals for the length of your stay, or special offers from resorts that you can plan your vacation around.

There are many other considerations you must take into account when deciding where to stay, but the three listed above are the primary ones that cost most travellers' minds when looking for holiday accommodations or hotels in other areas.
