Exceptionally clean and fresh room, very friendly service, and convenient EV charging

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Mar 2024
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.
Date of stay: February 2024
Room Tip: If you have an EV, be sure to book direct for free charging and let them know in the booking.

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.

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.
