I stayed here with my daughter during a basketball tournament. The spa and pool were great to cool down in. The check in process was quick, we even got in early! The owner was very helpful and cheery. Room was clean and bed was comfy. Bathroom was great! We would definitely stay here again!

Our family accommodation was great for a quick overnight stop in Bendigo. The lady at reception was very friendly and helpful providing lots of tourist information. The unit was large and very clean and comfortable and the pool was wonderful for a cool down on a hot day. Would highly recommend.

We have stayed at the Golden Reef on numerous occasions and are always very happy with the room and the service. The rooms are always very neat and always very clean. The motel is central to our needs and although situated on a busy road, there was no distracting traffic noises.
