Motel appears dated from the outside, however room was large and clean. Big bathroom as well which looked brand new. Hot water was hot with good pressure. Reverse cycle a/c was useful for frosty July. Bed had an electric blanket too which was most appreciated. Check in and out was easy. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled solo

We booked Welcome Stranger at a good rate, only needing an overnight stay on our trip from Sydney to Warrnambool. We were very pleased with the room. It was quiet, very clean, very comfortable, and the decor (fairly recent renovation?) was lovely.
It's a bit away from the town centre, restaurants, hotels etc but the owner gave us a couple of dining choices to try and good directions to drive there.
We would definitely stay again.

Well established motel. Renovated rooms, modern bathroom, quality fittings.
The bed was a little firm (for me) but still comfortable.
The staff (owners) had a can-do attitude which made our two night stay more enjoyable.
The motel is located a few blocks off the Calder Highway plus the building is on a large block and set back from the road so it was nice and quiet.
We will be back next time we need to stay in Bendigo or environs.

Room Tip: Book early!

From book in to check out we can not complain about anything. Very accomodating hosts, very quiet location but not far from anything. The room was very clean and tidy and this certainly made up for it not being ultramodern.
We stayed 4 nights over easter and after talking to others staying in bendigo at other spots it seemed we won out.
We will be back again. To the hosts / managers, thanks for your help also with our vehicles.

Stayed in Bendigo for a family birthday party
Unsure where to stay
Travelling through Golden Square via the Calder we noticed a motel sign on left at Oak Street
Arriving at Welcome Stranger we found the location to be excellent close to main part of town and shops
A few minutes drive away was the RSL lovely meals etc
The manager was courteous and helpful
Cost was better than expected
Rooms were clean and tidy
They have a lovely pool
We will be staying there again

Stayed: March 2017, travelled with family
