Great location to a conference we were attending across the road. Clean and comfortable room that was fairly priced and car park was easy to navigate. There is a supermarket and bottle shop a 2 minute drive away. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again!

It's always a delight to stay at the Golden Reef Motor Inn where you are assured of a warm welcome, a very comfortable bedroom with all the conveniences and a fantastic breakfast. Plus, it's great location.
As always, I thoroughly recommend this excellent Motel.

Written on behalf of Mrs Morgan. As a regular visitor to Bendigo, I look forward to my stay at the Golden Reef Motor Inn. I know that I will be extremely comfortable, well looked after, and will enjoy their delicious breakfasts. Comfortable beds, good reading, lights and overall, a very relaxing stay. Thank you once again and I hope to visit you soon.

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.

Room tip: Bring a bedside light or book light if you like to read in bed as the downlighting is not so pleasant to read with.
