We stayed at the Welcome Stranger for a night in May. Rooms were very nicely appointed and had plenty of facilities. Unusually for an Australian motel, continental breakfast was included in our room rate and was brought to the door in the morning. There was also free WiFi. Motel was in a quiet area but was a little far from... More

An older motel from the exterior but our room had been renovated and was modern, well appointed and comfortable. Off the highway so traffic noise was not a problem. The welcome was good and supplying an extra towel was also no problem.

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.

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
