We stayed last night in the family suite and found it to be clean tidy and excellent value for money. The breakfast was huge and we happily fed the resident pet golden retriever the left overs. The owners made us feel welcomed and our stay was restful and enjoyed by all.The kids especially loved the pool and basketball court. Would recommend to anyone needing a clean bed and wanting friendly service with home style cooked breakfasts. Yum

I stayed at the Allara Motor Lodge in December 2012 and found it uncomfortable, due to the insufficient air conditioning in the family sized unit in which I stayed. Yes, it was during summer but the weather was not scorching and if you pay for air conditioning it is reasonable to expect it is effective. The unit layout had the main living area and double bed at the front of the unit and the bathroom and second bedroom and beds behind it, through a doorway. The air conditioner was located at the very rear of the unit. While the air conditioner worked wonders cooling the rear of the unit, it had very little effect in the main living area. The result was a hot and uncomfortable night's attempted sleep. The unit should either have had two air conditioners or, failing that, the single air conditioner in the front half of the unit, where it is needed most.

I also gave breakfast at the motel a miss as it was a bit too pricey.

The motel has a swimming pool but lacks an overhead shade.

If you are travelling as a family and considering staying at the Allara Motor Lodge during the summer, here's my advice, don't stay there.

Room Tip: Avoid the family units.

Stayed for 1 night and found the place very clean. Rooms are dated and have quite thin walls but are adequate for the cost. It is quite some distance from main area but this wasn't an inconvenience.

For someone travelling alone, finding a friendly place on a very cold evening really is important, and Allara was perfect. Very friendly reception, and a warm, cosy room with everything one requires. I felt safe and very content here and thoroughly recommend it.

We recently stayed here for 2 nights in a family room and were pleased with the accommodation. Plenty of space, can sleep 6, with all you could need. Was clean with a fridge, couch, tv, comfy beds and room to move. The rooms were a bit dated but were still well maintained, functional and comfortable.
The grounds contain a pool, gazebo with BBQ area, table and chairs and a basketball ring.
Reception staff were pleasant to deal with and happy to give directions, etc.
A little out from Central Bendigo shopping district, but next to the Botanic gardens and near Bendigo Pottery.
Very reasonably priced. I would recommend a stay for budget accommodation.

Room Tip: Sits back from road so any room would have little traffic noise.
