Lovely hotel it’s cheap and clean staff are friendly and it is close to the city centre. Staff here are friendly and helpful for a cheap motel I would say come and stay. Worth every cent and once again very clean.

Had two rooms booked 6 months in advance of a trip for 10 of us (nearly 40 year old males) to play golf. Booked via booking.com, two rooms five adults each. Owner rang me 2 days before intended stay and cancelled the booking, said she didn't want a group of drunk guys trashing the room. Also said its not OK for two guys to share a double bed together. She was extremely rude and then hung up when I tried to point out the clear discrimination. Go back to the 1950s love.

We stayed overnight for a quick family catch up in Bendigo. The room was very comfortable and clean. A highlight was the wonderful customer service - both the friendly response on the phone when booking and during the check-in process, and also on discovering that an important animal friend - Penny Penguin had been left behind. A phone call arranged for a collection the next day by Grandparents. This was then followed by a series of photos of our daughter’s toy Penguin eating dinner, dessert and being tucked up in bed, helping in the office and being collected by Grandma. Above and beyond in terms of customer service. Thank you so much Ovsl Motel.
