Nice place to stay in Bendigo

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Apr 2023
Very happy with this accommodation. Staff were friendly, bed was comfy and the room was very clean. Reasonably priced, as well. Would happily recommend. A little bit out of town but you are opposite a resort which has a bistro, etc

The family room was clean and big plenty of space for us to move around. Even though the place was fully booked it was still nice and quiet. The reception staff were helpful and friendly.In a great location just out of town but still close enough.

This hotel was the cleanest I have ever stayed at. We had an executive suite. Brooke at reception was helpful and friendly and gave us a small bottle of fresh milk on arrival. The price of items in the bar fridge was very reasonable. Would definitely stay again.

3 of us shared a 2 bedroom unit and it was perfect. It was spotless, well presented and spacious. Checkin was a breeze and directions given to help us get around. We dined at the nearby Bendigo Club as recommended and this was excellent. Golden Reef was Ideal accomodation for an event we were attending nearby. Would certainly recommend - we have already booked for next year.
