Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Checking in I was greeted with a very friendly welcome, and a parking space had been reserved so I could charge my EV. The room was very up to date for an older building and was absolutely spotless. The bed was extremely comfy, can't fault anything. Highly recommended.

Hotel's Favourite
Having decided the day before to just get out of Melbourne and drive somewhere for the day and stay overnight, we chose Bendigo because we had never been there before. Booked online (directly through the motel rather than an agency, I won't spoil the surprise you get when you get there for doing that). Mark looked after us perfectly. Room was great, easy walking distance to the town centre and he recommended some great places to eat out in. Many thanks Gareth & Helen

“ … I won’t spoil the surprise you get … (booking) directly...” is so nice to read Gareth & Helen. Thank you for pointing to this, as at CDM we want to reward guests for using our website as a direct booking. A phone call or email will do the same. As there are no hidden commissions dealing direct, we can, without fail, offer a better deal. Third parties can charge up to 25% you know! We also appreciate your favourable comments regarding the room, our convenient location, and tips re food in Bendigo. Our city offers so much, and it is little wonder that it wins so many awards for tourism. We look forward to hosting you both again – when another little surprise awaits you.

The place very clean, tidy and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and went over and above to make our visit to Bendigo really enjoyable. The motel was centrally located and an easy walk into the centre of town. The tram ride is a must.

A great place to stay when your in Bendigo. It's handy to everything you'll ever need. Close to shopping, pub across the road ( they deliver to your room) or go in for a counter meal. Highly recommended. We stay there every time we go to Bendigo.

Mystery Bay, Australia5 contributions1 helpful vote
What a great place to stay in this beautiful town. You get free charging on the two 11kw overnight chargers if you book head. The rooms are very nice and tidy, well decorated and quiet. The motel is very central with easy walking distance of downtown and right next to the mine. Hosts Justin and Ingrid are super friendly! Justin even blocks out the charging spots with bollards, so worth booking ahead for the free charging, which makes a huge difference on a roadtrip - leaving in the morning with a full charge is fantastic!

As a couple we travel often staying at Motels as well as with our van staying at Caravan Parks. The Central Deborah Motel in Bendigo was one of the best. In an excellent location in town , the room was well presented, clean and everything you might need for your stay. Bed was very comfy and the manager/ reception staff were very friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble allowed us to book in early before we went to the races . Bakery and Hotel across the road, close to city centre but far enough away for a relaxing stay. Make sure you book direct with the Motel they will match the other agency deals and all the money stays in Australia.

The room was super spacious (ie huge), clean, quiet and divinely comfortable. The Motel is perfectly located on the edge of the CBD, from where you can catch a tram, take a leisurely walk or drive into town. The owners are so friendly and very helpful. After a big day out it was lovely to come back to the room to relax in peace. Our experience with all staff was positive. We highly recommend a stay here. This was a return visit and will not be our last. Love Bendigo, love the Central Deborah.

Dear Peter We are delighted to hear that you found our rooms perfect and clean during your trip to Bendigo. It's great to know that you found the lift – installed a few days before Christmas 2023 - to the 2nd floor excellent and that our staff were able to exceed your expectations.

The tram is indeed a convenient way to explore the central areas of Bendigo without having to drive, and we are glad you found it useful. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.
