Booked two nights here for the Bendigo Blues Festival in early November. A central location meant we could walk to a number of the festival venues and leave our car at the motel. Very friendly gentleman at reception, who was obliging and helpful at checkin and checkout. We had a downstairs room, and were worried about noise from neighbouring rooms... More

Make certain you have kitchen facilities our room had a toaster but no plates, no knives, forks or spoons. We assumed that kitchen facilities came with the room but alas we had to ask for those facilities and unfortunately they couldn't accommodate us, Lugging luggage up stairs was not easy either

Super clean and reasonably priced rooms. Feels more like a hotel than a motel. I stayed in room 22 that had a small balcony. Given that it's in the city the noise levels are minimal. Getting the suitcase up the stairs made me realise I over packed. Other than that I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for a night , the staff were so friendly and the price was really good. The rooms were clean and there wasn't a set check out time either. The beds were comfortable and there was a balcony for smokers too. I would come here again no worries.

Vin goes to Bendigo 8 or 9 times a year for a board meeting and this is where he is accommodated. Reception with Judith and Simon are always friendly, professional and obliging. As other TA's have noted it is centrally and conveniently located to a number of Bendigo restaurants and attractions (eg Art Gallery). Rooms are being refurbished which has... More

It is easy walking distance from the train station and central to the hub of shops &close to restaurants.

Great location, close to the Bendigo CBD, poor quality rooms, poor value for money, poor cleanliness (black mould in the shower), poor follow up by management when compliant received, don't expect any out of the ordinary, need I say any more.

It looks like the 70's on the outside, however the inside was fully renovated and spotless. And the bedding was incredibly comfortable. As always, very friendly and flexible reception. Happy to keep coming back.
