Basic motel accommodation off the main road. Vehicle required. Swimming pool included. Rooms were basic and dated. Kept reasonably clean and serviced daily. Reception staff could be more helpful. Prices reflected the quality and location. Had road noise in the mornings. No attractions in close proximity.

We stayed at this hotel on our final night of our Tasmania & Great Ocean Road Tour, on a motorbike, in Dec 2014 - Jan 2015. They were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were perfect! One of the best rooms we stayed in our trip & a great price. It was very modern and a very nice bathroom. Would... More

Wonderful little motel tucked away in a quiet part of Bendigo. well appointed, very functional and great service. Although the pool could do with a bit of maintenance, it was lovely to be able to cool off after a long drive and the pool area is lovely. Breakfast was delivered on time and hot. The gardens are beautiful and a... More

We stayed overnight to go to a party so did not want to spend money on a room we were not going to be spending a lot of time in. The room was clean, included table and chairs for four people. Beds were comfy, everything worked and was roomy enough for 2 adults and two children. We were able to... More

The room was quite dated and basic but was clean. The motel is a bit of a distance from town - we walked out for a meal which is doable but not great. Staff were friendly and helpful. The price was fine though.

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... More

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... More

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... More
