Clean and comfortable

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Mar 2024via mobile
We stayed here for a couple of nights and found the motel a great stop. The building itself is older, however the owners have done a great job keeping it as modern as possible. The carpet, bed and decor appear new. The bathroom has some years on it, however have been kept in excellent conditon. The proximity to the Mine and the tram stop is an added bonus!
Reception staff were friendly and knowledgeable and thanked us for booking direct.
We will recommend this place to friends/family and would stay again.

Thank you Jim for the top-notch 5/5 “ Clean and comfortable” review of the Central Deborah Motel. Our team takes great pride in maintaining the property to a high standard, and it's reassuring to know that our efforts have not gone unnoticed.
We are glad you appreciated our efforts to update the motel while preserving its charm. Our lift to the first floor is the latest addition to cap off a hectic renovation period, especially during the Covid lockdowns. Triple-glazed windows were another welcome addition.
It's very nice to know you enjoyed the proximity to the Mine and tram stop. We agree that it's a unique advantage of our location.
We will be sure to pass along your compliments to our reception staff. Providing excellent customer service is a top priority for us, and we are delighted that they were able to enhance your experience with their friendliness and knowledge.
Your mention of booking direct is really appreciated too as online travel agents charge hefty commission of at least 15%. This considerable impost means we can always provide a better deal when booking direct not only financially but also with the extras like an early check-in/late check-out and sometimes other little surprises. These being? … well that would spoil the surprise, wouldn’t it🤫
Thank you for considering us for your future stays and for recommending Central Deborah Motel to your friends and family. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future!

This Motel is an excellent place to stay when in Bendigo. 15 mins of slow walk from the centre and most attractions. A large bakery just across the road. A large Woolworths supermarket 300m from the motel. The tourist Central Deborah mine and the talking tramway terminal is 5 mins walk. The accommodation is spacious and finished with modern appliances. The staff there are very friendly and pleased to help. I travel a lot and this motel is cut above most. I would be happy to stay again and would recommend the stay to my friends

Where to start... the location is great with lots of places to eat and explore nearby and a supermarket within walking distance. Easy to get to St John of God hospital, too. Bed was comfy, our room faced the main road but was surprisingly quiet, and the hosts were welcoming and helpful. Room was clean and spacious, with a smart TV, free wireless internet, a microwave, and what felt like a HUGE bed. Drivers of larger cars might find the car parking a little tight on a busy night, but hubby reversed our iMax in with no dramas. Upstairs rooms can be accessed by stairs or a lift. This motel really must be considered for a stay in Bendigo. Thanks Justin, Ingrid, and team for a comfortable stay!

We'd like to thank Justin for a great stay and for going above and beyond when we forgetfully left our good clothes behind in the room cupboard!! It must drive proprietors crazy when folk like us leave a problem behind but so appreciate the kindness in getting a postal return sorted for us ...thanks again!! The room was cool, comfortable and well sound proofed facing the main drag too.
