Operations Manager's Message

Firstly, hello and welcome to the Budget Motels webpage.

My name is Christopher Fozard and I am delighted to take up the role of Budget Motels Operations Manager and I thank the Board for this opportunity. This enables me to bring together my years of Defence,Customer Service and Community organisation experience with my love of Hospitality.

The Budget Motels is the ‘Trading Name’ of the National Budget Referral Chain Limited, which encompasses our three brands, including the longest running Motel Chain in Australia, Budget Motels, which was started in 1978, as well as Orbit Inns and Paragon Hotels.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned traveller, a corporate go-getter or a first-time holiday maker; If you travel around the beautiful countries of Australia and New Zealand, just remember that the Budget Motels has over 175 motels for you, and your family to enjoy, and this number is only growing!

For our guests that are social butterflies and like to keep your eye out for a bargain, you can “follow” us on Facebook, search: Budget Motels.

And let’s not forget our ‘Grey Nomads’, sometimes it’s nice to “get out of the moving home for a night, and have a break”.

I am honoured to be a part of the Budget Motels team, with its rich history, supportive members and wonderful guests, which all make for an exciting future.

I wish you and your families all the best, and hope that you get to visit some of our beautiful regional towns and stay at some of our wonderful motels. Please feel free to have a chat with the owners and their staff, they’re a wealth of knowledge, especially about things to do and see, and places to eat

Don’t be shy, say hi, because at Budget Motels we are Always Accommodating, within your budget.

Kind Regards

Christopher Fozard
