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.

We had such a positive experience from the booking, to being greeted through to departure. Recently refurbished room (& bathroom) was fresh, clean and spacious. Perfectly presented & had all the modern conveniences. Also nice & quiet - no traffic noise. The bed was very comfortable, and a nice size. Well located, across the road from the lake and a short walk to a great selection of hotels & cafes. Highly recommended

Jody and Brent are amazing hosts and the motel rooms contain everything you need. The rooms and the outdoor areas are well maintained. I feel very safe when I stay, and the location is perfect. This was my 5th booking and they are always my first contact when I’m in Bendigo. Highly recommend this family run business.

We only spent one night at the Tea House and found that Brent & Jody were very friendly and helpful. They directed us to a restaurant and provided us with a map. The following day we received a message from them that we had left our pillow behind. They then went out of their way to parcel post it back to Adelaide to us. We found the room to be very clean and comfortable would highly recommend and certainly would use this facility again. Margaret & Barry Adelaide

Thanks Steven for a glowing 5/5 review.. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and are looking forward in staying again next time you are in Bendigo. Our location sure is beautiful directly opposite Lake Weeroona. We are also wrapped to hear that you found the beds to be super comfy and enjoyed the king size pillows and huge bath towels.. We do receive a lot of feedback regarding our fluffy bath sheets. Guests don't often find bath sheets in motel rooms. It's just one of the added extras we love to provide our guests.

Very nice, well appointed room with a fantastic bed! Nice selection of drinks in the mini bar. Close to the lake for your early morning walk and there is a awesome coffee van there too. Highly recommend for a weekend away or the week day business trip.

Thanks Chris G for taking the time to leave a review and such a positive 5/5 review. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoy our amazing location directly opposite Lake Weeroona. An early morning walk and coffee is a great way to start the day.. You mentioned our mini bars.. Yes, we still continue to offer mini bars in all of our rooms and guests find this to be a great feature as they mention a lot of motel's no longer have mini bars in there rooms. We like to keep the variety large with our prices extremely reasonable for our guests. Looking forward in welcoming you back to stay again soon. Best Wishes, Brent & Jody
