“Beautiful, quaint rooms & friendly service”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

A big thank you to Karen & Charlie who were able to accomodate us at the last minute. The room was very comfortable and pretty too! Our Queen bed gave us a spectacular rest...especially with an extra hour before check out granted to us! We also received lots of info and a map to help us get around.
Would definitely come back again.

Reviewed 8 February 2014 via mobile

We stayed in one of the rooms that had not been renovated. This did not matter as the room was extremely clean and had a lovely fresh smell to it.

There were no drinks or bar snacks which i found disappointing. And when i went to put my breakfast order 5 minutes after the cutoff time of 7 pm it came across as an inconvenience.

Great pool, great rooms in a quiet location.

The only thing stopping me from giving this 5 stars is the people running it. They need to improve their interpersonal skills a bit more.

I would come back here again.

We found the Welcome Stranger Motel clean and good value for the Bendigo area. It is situated a few kms out of the centre. We paid $99 for the room which did not included breakfast. They are updating the rooms- painting and renovating the bathrooms. They seem to be doing a very good job. I travel for work and my wife sometime travels with me. We found it worth the stay.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are quite and away from the busy road

A busy weekend in Bendigo and pleased we had booked our rooms some time ago. We had 6 rooms booked for a family wedding. Some rooms were refurbished and some weren't. Very hospitable hosts and couldn't do enough for you. Very quiet clean and comfortable. My only gripe is that we had 1 room in original condition and 1 refurbished however our original room rate was as high as the nice new refurbished room so certainly wasn't worth the same money but when the town is booked out you don't have a choice. We also had to pay two nights for 1 room we only needed for 1 night but as the town was full it was a 2 night min stay and as we wanted to all stay together we had no choice but to be out of pocket a further $120 which made it an even more expensive stay.

The motel is a couple of blocks back from the highway and is VERY quiet. Beds were comfortable and a good nights sleep was had by all!
This was the second time I have staye dhere and I will stay again!

Just what we wanted - peaceful sleep, better than an average motel room and with the usual TV, heating and fridge. We got more than we expected really. The high beamed ceilings and bay window was a lovely surprise. But, more than that, we had tyre trouble and the manager could not have been any more helpful. Great quiet spot. Will definitely go back when we want the quiet of the country but not too far away from city restaurants etc.
