We stayed in an Executive room in the Fountain View Apartments for 2 nights. The room was beautiful with 20 foot ceilings and very old world but with modern facilities. The spa bath was great. The main issue was having to carry luggage up 3 flights of stairs (no lift). However the ambience was lovely and if climbing stairs doesn't... More

I have stayed at Maisonette apartments previously and enjoy the proximity to all that is good in Bendigo, the availability of great wine selection at the Wine Bank and the gorgeous old building. Always clean and comfortable with a nice courtyard outside the room. One improvement I'd like to see is the artwork in the rooms - ours had a... More

Stayed there one night to see Michael Franti play in Bendigo. Nice place, quite affordable. We stayed in the Maisonette room, it's quite nice. Very old building (the front used to be a bank; huge vaulted ceilings). It's now a wine bar / cellar at the front with accommodation at the back. Parking for 3 or 4 cars. We'll definitely... More

We arrived tired and in need of a cool drink at the Fountain View Apartments. There was a courtyard bar in which we enjoyed some lovely sparkling water. This bar was part of the restaurant upstairs which was also very good. Parked car at venue. Then upward to our apartment which was clean, very attractive and had a comfortable king... More

Thanks Evelyn, I really do appreciate people making the effort to review our accommodation. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and were well served by our friendly staff. The reason we have check in at Wine Bank is because our suites and apartments are in many different locations in central Bendigo. Thanks again for recommending Allawah and we look forward... More

We found the room well equipped and spotless in cleanliness. The bed was rock hard not comfortable at all. Never saw any staff and bar staff in the adjacent building took the fee. They were not interested in guests. Strange set up.

Thanks Trish for your review, we take very seriously our guests opinions and endeavor to always improve our accomadation. I would like to respond in point form. 1) we pride ourselves in cleanliness and the provision of well maintained equipment 2) getting the correct softness/hardness happy medium is not easy, some of our guests rave about their nights sleep but...

Great apartment and very comfortable. Good location. In good walking distance to some great eateries. Definitely will come back again. I only have one very small gripe, and that is some milk in the fridge would have been nice to go with the tea and coffee.

We have been traveling around Australia and New Zealand and ended up visiting friends in Bendigo who recommended Allawah, even though they never stayed there or saw it. WE LOVED IT. Great to have such a quiet, comfortable, convenient place to stay. The morning breakfast was wonderful too. Great concept for a small space.

Mark C, Owner at Allawah Bendigo, responded to this review

Hi there, Thank you for your kind words about our accommodation. Whilst being located conveniently in the heart of Bendigo CBD, the rooms stay quite as they are tucked behind the Wine Bank on View which is where you would have had the wonderful morning breakfast. Enjoy the rest of your travels around Australia and New Zealand! More

Spacious room, clean and great location. Tariff on the high side for what you get. Television/dvd set up not good and an upgrade there would be a great idea. Also shower was terrible, very hard to get wet! We had a lovely night away but just feel it was a bit overpriced.

Thank you sending us your review!
