“Comfort and Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Staff were very helpful. Comfortable beds. Nice decor. Very quiet location. Loved the indoor heated pool, spa and sauna. Breakfast was included which was cereal, toast, yoghurt, juices, tea and coffee. Would stay again.

I stay here almost every month with work and Jamie and his team always provide the very best of old fashioned service we all miss! The rooms have been re done with superb new pillow top beds and the food is always the best home cooked meals you could wish for when you're working away. No doubt the best breaky I've had anywhere! The pool is quite small but if you like to stretch out there are walking tracks and parks near by. All I look for when I'm travelling is a good internet connection, comfy bed and room service providing home cooked meals. This place never disappoints.

Room Tip: All the rooms are in a U shape, but be rest assured there has never been a noise problem in the 12 m...

It had been 3 years since my last visit and it was not well patronised by guests at that time. The current owners have lifted the level of quality massively since then and I cannot find another like for like motel in Bendigo that comes close to the overall quality and value that Colonial has.

Food in the restaurant was of very high quality even though I ordered from the low priced business Weekly specials, what I ordered was first class - simple but very well presented and cooked. I have no doubt that all the food available from their restaurant "Jonah's" is of the same high quality. Even if you don't stay there go and eat in the restaurant, it is worth it.

I stayed there on a business trip and they provided all the service and support I needed. In past years this had not always been the case. The accommodation is still not as highly patronised as other properties in the area, and I cannot fathom why as the rooms are massively generous in size, quality fittings and bedding and everything worked- internet, TV etc. One pay TV channel was not available that should have been.

I will be back to stay at this property.

Beautiful Rooms, Pool, spa and BBQ area. Was beautiful for the hot summer day that we were there. We found the service to be a bit of a let down, as we had some beers with a friend to go with this beautiful day. We felt a bit judge by the staff when we had a few drinks and got told that this was not what their hotel was for "Drinking in a room all night" when we were catching up with a friend we hardly see because we are out of towners. We have stayed at many hotels and all take credit card details incase damages, etc. occur. We didn't like that $500 was actually taken from our account without warning and held as a bond, we were told that it was "standard practice." It takes a few days for it to go back into your account, but the fact we were not told about this was a let down and very disappointing.

We would recommend this hotel, it is very comfortable. Just be aware of some things you do and that money is taken without being consulted.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Family room, it was very comfortable.

Since our last visit 18 months ago, the owners have upgraded most rooms.

Very modern bathroom update and excellent use of space. They continue to actively promote and support environmentally friendly practices.

The most comfy bed and pillows we've ever slept on, full buffet breakfast was fresh and delicious.

The staff are friendly and helpful, this will always be where we stay when visiting Bendigo in future.

Friendly service. Very well appointed room. Very comfortable bed. Quiet. Food & room service very good. Excellent meal. Only one very minor complaint T.V. remote difficult to use. Will definitely make it my first choice to stay in Bendigo. Have stayed at many motels in the area, some very good,but this is the best.
