Stopped here for a night and the lady who booked us in was very accommodating. We even received a senior's discount, though we had to ask for it. The room was spacious and clean, with a big bathroom. Also very quiet though we were on a main road.

We rang this hotel at 10.30pm looking for urgent accommodation for 8 people (there were 6 rooms needed). We had arrived late into Bendigo to discover our firm had made a major booking error with another hotel. With work ahead of us to prepare for the next day, my opening line was to apologise for calling so late as it...

Thank you for your time in critiquing your recent stay at our motel. It was surprising to see the photos you attached to your critique - all uploaded from photos provided on the Tripadvisor listing.

Thanks very much to mick and his lovely wife, fantastic stay. Very accommodating. We had a trailer that needed storing for a local function in which they were more than happy to accommodate us. No trouble what so ever. Thank you very much for a great stay.

Thank you for your time reviewing your stay at our motel over the busy Australia Day weekend. We appreciate your honest and kind words and assisting with the parking of your trailer was no problem.

The apartment was comfortable and clean the grounds were in need of a good weed and tidy up. The most disappointing thing was the pool. There was no shade to speak of. There was rubble near the bbq and over all presentation was poor. When we first went to check out the pool there was a bag of salt in...

Comfortable and clean room, friendly, welcoming management, aims to please. Accomodated my sudden, late notice change of plans without any sense of it being a problem to them. Nice location with easy access, large shopping mall nearby. Away from the CBD but only a relatively short drive (approx 4km). Would recommend for short to medium stay.

Rooms are basic but clean, nice touch was the included 'continental' breakfast delivered to the room each day, hosts were friendly and flexible, free wifi which worked. Only downside is the Inn is about 10-15 minutes drive out of town, aside from the fish & chip bar across the road, no walking distance eateries.

We didn't pre-book so was glad to find a room for the night. We chose a two bedroom apartment next door to the motel which gave us lots of space...self contained kitchen, lounge, bathroom, separate toilet, laundry. Shower pressure was good.
