Our first choice in Bendigo
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Dec 2023
Golden Reef Bendigo was fabulous. Clean, well appointed rooms and friendly approachable staff. The pool and spa (with accessible shade) were a great hit with the kids on the hot days. We also like that it’s walking distance from dining options. We will visit again for sure.
Date of stay: November 2023
Room Tip: Bring a bedside light or book light if you like to read in bed as the downlighting is not so...

Perfect for a family of 4 in the Family Room. Seperate bedroom for the kids with 2 single beds and a tv. Easy check in. Enough room in the car park to swing a big ute around. I would stay again next time we are in Bendigo.

We found the room, bathroom, etc. very clean couldn't fault it, the sheets and bed very comfortable. Air conditioning worked beautifully.

When we return to Bendigo, we will certainly be booking Golden Reef Motor Inn again.

We had a very comfortable 2-night stay. The location was excellent for us as we had a function to attend in a nearby hall. It was also walking distance from the Bendigo Club where we had several nice meals. The room was large enough for us and had plenty of room for a table and four chairs. It was clean and tidy, and our hosts were friendly and helpful. We have re-booked for another visit next year.
