Very enjoyable stay! Highly recommended.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 June 2022
Our room was spacious and very clean. Eugene and Brooke were wonderful hosts. Our cooked breakfast was delivered to our room on time and was delicious. Thank you for rescuing us after another motel nearby lost our 5 night booking and we had nowhere to go as Bendigo was booked out with the Elvis festival.

Booked two executive rooms for three travellers at short notice. Excellent service and value. The best shower I have ever experienced. Very comfortable beds and very clean and quiet. Will definitely stay again when passing through Bendigo. Many thanks to the wonderful owners and hospitality team for their hard work.

Our room was spacious, extremely clean, it was fresh & modern. The ammenities were excellent for families. Toaster, microwave & a bar fridge that actually worked. I love the fact they use shampoo/conditioner dispensers it’s so good for the environment - well done.

Room tip: The pool doesn’t seem to be heated
