Thanks to Jen & Darren for an awesome two night stay while we were in Bendigo for the GTM festival. Friendly and very helpful owners who were very accommodating for all the young people staying - really did go above and beyond with transport into town too!

We only stayed one night but we will be back again. The room was neat, spacious and extremely clean. All the extras (toiletries, coffee, extra blankets etc) were easily found & the information pack in the room was very helpful for our short stay in the area.

The welcome was very warm. The room was very clean and neat. Nice furnishings. Comfy bed also. This place had a pool which was very clean and had a lovely area with a BBQ available. Good size car park. I would certainly stay there again and again and recommend to all family and friends.

We stayed for 3 nights and slept extremely well on each of them, despite motel being full, no noise from other guests, beds really comfortable and air-con extremely effective, ( it was hot!). Warm welcome form Darren and his family and attentive but not intrusive service throughout. The shady pool whilst not large is perfect for refreshing after a hard...

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. Unfortunately I do not know which room you were in to follow up with our housekeeping but we will investigate our hot water services to ensure they are working to capacity.
