We really enjoyed our stay of 2 nights. We stayed in a 2 bedroom family room which was spacious, modern and clean. Kids had their own beds and tv which they thought was great. Loved the added extras in the bathroom, shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, lotions etc. Free wifi was great as was the option of breakfast. Didn’t get to use the pool but it looked clean and inviting. Our hosts were friendly and helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on our Motel. You've summed it up brilliantly. Its a great location, nice and quiet when you need to sleep, yet just a small distance from all the great things in Bendigo. Thank you also for noticing how hard our dedicated housekeepers work, they do a fantastic job. Its been a tough year and all direct bookings are helping get us back on track, so again thank you. Safe travels in 2021. We hope to see you again.

The room was exceptional clean and a good size. The staff were very friendly and the pool was nice and clean. The city of Bendigo is only a short drive away so no problems with that. Most travellers look first in the city (of Bendigo) for accommodation. I have been traveling now for 30 years and there is always a "hidden gem" (like this Motor Inn) just out of town in most major towns and cities throughout Australia.
