This one has been well tested by other relations of ours and repeatedly comes up with the goods, so we had high hopes - and were not disappointed. The Colonial is a good, honest motel. Very clean and quite well fitted out. Reasonably comfy beds. Fairly quiet (although is on the main road to Bendigo). Good quality split system air... More

A great stay always begins with the initial contact made at any accommodation place. The service provided by this motel, Yasmine in particular was fantastic. Upon arrival the young girl at reception (didn’t get her name) was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. These two young girls made you feel very welcome. When I arrived in the room I was pleasantly... More

The Colonial is well appointed but somewhat pricey for a motel; the furnishings and bedding are fine but the vinyl flooring can be somewhat cool during the winter months. The bathroom is enormous and one could place a fold up bed in there for that extra traveller, if need be. The shower is accommodating and has an aromatherapy spray too-I... More

Booking was easily done over the phone. Because we were arriving late, staff left our room heater on which was very welcome after a long wet, cold drive. Yasmine at reception was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and well appointed, and very clean. The bathroom was an older style, but clean and well maintained. Walking distance to...

Short break holiday back to my home town. Our room was in the old school section and was the size of a small apartment. Huge flat screen TV, dining table and small kitchenette (no cooktop only microwave) Great king bed was luxury bedding. Large bathroom with spa. Service from booking to check out was great. Friendly staff were very helpful... More

I stayed here with my 7 year old daughter for 2 nights in November 13. Fab clean room, wonderful new bathroom with amazing shower and very friendly staff. Walking distance to delicious restaurants. I don't think you could ask for more in a small country town. We are from melbourne and rather than stay in a city hotel to celebrate... More

Comfortable, clean, recently done up rooms and good central location. Good amenities like free wifi, minibar, and bathroom supplies. Our room was close to main road of Barker St, I noticed the occasional car on it in middle of night, though the town is pretty quiet. Overally we were very happy with our two night stay.
