Quiet, clean and well appointed room with good undercover parking. Friendly and helpful staff. Good value for money with a continental breakfast provided in the room for my early departure the next morning. The only downside is that the Motel doesn't have a restaurant.

After staying one night at another Motel which was totally unacceptable, my friend and I moved to this Motel. What a difference!!!!! Friendly welcome from the Manager who couldn't help us enough, very informative. The room was fabulous with a great outdoor area complete with plenty of tables and chairs (some under shade sails), pool which is heated but didn't... More

Stayed for 1 night in August while travelling through Victoria. Room was neat and clean and located in a quiet location. Location is close to shops and a short drive into Bendigo CBD. Very friendly family run hotel. Definitely recommend for an overnight or 2 night stay.

Clean rooms, large size, comfy beds. My only concern is the location of the pool, it is in the courtyard with rooms either side. Could be hard to sleep with people sitting around chatting etc. otherwise I recommend

Our room was very spacious, spotless and quiet. We were very impressed the Owner had waited for our late arrival & turned the heater and electric blankets on as it was a very chilly night. Thank you. Breakfast in the morning was perfect and arrived on time. We would certainly stay again.

We stayed at the Crystal Inn for a weekend away visiting Bendigo. It's a short drive to the city centre and not much around to walk to in terms of restaurants etc. We had a spa room which was very clean, the décor is dated but well maintained however the bed was so uncomfortable and hindered a good sleep.

Thank you for your review. We are very disappointed to read that you did not find the bed comfortable. We have looked into this matter and replaced a bed leg which was damaged hopefully making the bed much more comfortable for future guests. The particular room you stayed in has a high balcony wall for privacy and quietness, as it... More

We had a most enjoyable overnight stay in Bendigo and were made most welcome by friendly, efficient staff who went out of their way to make our experience a good one, accessing a local restaurant for us at very short notice.

We stayed in a spa room and it was very clean and we'll layer out. Reasonably priced for the location and features. Only 5 minutes drive from the Centre of bendigo.

We chose to stay at the Crystal Inn as I needed disabled facilities. We were not disappointed. The disabled carpark is right next to the lift to the floor where the disabled room was.
