We were disappointed that the Restaurant was closed over the Easter period for dinner. This meant we had to look for somewhere to have dinner. the Motel staff told us 'there are places around'. It is a little difficult to see the entrance at night. More lighting is required

Comfy, large rooms walk to pub, great brekky!

Lovely warm welcome, big rooms, comfy bed, great brekky & friendly, attentive staff. Opposite lake, nice walk & walking distance to pub, takeaways, if need a meal (sadly their very good onsite restaurant closed wkends). Also can walk to town, wearher permitting, so good location, not cheap but is one of the better hotels & certainly can't complain about the experience.

Hi Pete, Thanks for your review and 4 out of 5 rating. We're pleased to have ticked all the boxes, minus the weekend dinner dining option, unfortunately if we did open we'd be opening for 1 or 2 customers, as the Bendigo food scene has soooo much to offer locals and travellers, motel restaurants are not high on guests dining list. We do hope to welcome you back again soon, you'll have to stay on a week night and enjoy dinner by our chef! Regards, Kristyn S Owner & General Manager
