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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Booked in for one night. The room was extremely clean and inviting. The bathroom was a generous size and contained a bath/spa. The breakfast I ordered of bacon & eggs was done to perfection and was delivered on time. Jennifer & Phil were friendly and they made sure I felt welcome and that I had everything I needed. Nothing was too much trouble.

Jennifer and her husband are a delight to deal with, super friendly and helpful.
Room smelt amazing and was immaculate and clean.
Parking is random and you must not reverse park in, so exhaust fumes do not seep under the room doors.
No laundry facilities but there is a coin operated one at the shopping complex down the road, only a few kms away.
Usual tea, coffee and fridge.
No cooking facilities but if you ask for a microwave, they will put it in your room as well as plates etc for takeaway’s.
Bed was very comfortable and sheets were silky to sleep on.
We were provided with lots of information and brochures for our visit to the city.
Truly 5 star rating for service and room.

Came from Mornington to stay one night to attend a birthday party. The management went out of their way to make sure the room was cleaned before our 11am arrival as there were other people in the room the night before. A Hilton or a Novetel would make you wait until 2pm check in. I was very impressed and then to step into a spotless room I was more impressed. The split system worked perfectly, coffee and mini milk, hairdryer and the bath towels decorated beautifully on the bed. For the price it is above expectations. Thank you.

This is our second stay at the Golden Square Motel and it is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are spotlessly clean, large tv, Wi Fi, bed is really comfortable and the hosts Phil and Jenny are just brilliant. The motel is on the highway but still very quiet you could hardly hear the traffic. It is just as though we had been staying here for years, we were made that welcome. Try their cooked breakfast, just delightful. This now is our favourite spot to stay when in Bendigo. The location is also near two hotels within easy walking distance. Both supply excellent meals.
Well done Phil & Jenny. Will see you next trip and keep up the good work.
Regards, Ian & Wendy Benbow. (Horsham)

Excellent budget choice with everything required for a long or short stay- kettle, microwave, fridge, toaster. Jennifer the owner was extremely helpful and attentive to the needs of my elderly companion, providing extras such as a shower chair. The room heater was on for our arrival making us feel very welcome on a cold day. Amazingly quiet overnight given location on main road. Older syle spacious double room with well separated areas and plenty of seating and work spaces. Everything was great! Breakfast simple but a bargain. Highly recommend.

The motel was one of the cleanest I’ve ever been to & Jennifer was extremely accommodating. We booked three rooms, while attending a funeral, not only was she very helpful but also sympathetic to our very sad situation. We will definitely be back.

The hosts are very friendly and go to extreme lengths to make their guests comfortable. Rooms are very clean and welcoming. They even have a window washer to wash the windscreen of your car :) I'll definitely stay there next trip to Bendigo.

I am very pleased that my really terrible review was published. The owner wrote a reply comparing their motel to London hotel prices during the Olympics and I repeat they must be living in Fantasyland!!!
