The helpful staff from the moment we arrived,the rooms were fantastic and the chef they have must be the best in Victoria.Our tour group had been touring across Victoria for 10 days and upon leaving were talking our heads off about what a fantastic comparison this Comfort Inn was to everywhere else we had stayed at in Victoria.

Hi Andrew B,

Thank you for the kind words about our property.

We thoroughly enjoyed hosting your tour group at the motel everyone was so very nice it was just a pitty the weather wasnt a little better for you. It just goes to show that no matter how good all your planning is there is one thing that cannot always be controlled and that is the weather.

At the motel we are so very lucky to have such great staff especially Michael our Chef he is fantastic and has just started a new Spring/Summer Menu.

We hope to see you on a return trip back to Victoria if your travelling through Bendigo.

Regards

Tyrone

Another little adventure for me and out to the Victorian country side.

Much debate on which hotel to pick but settled on this one in the end and chose a two bedroom room. Was travelling with a good friend and could have shared a bed but sometimes better to have your own space.

One of the highlights was Nick on reception. Warm and engaging and was also able to assist with the wireless (which is VERY slow) and some breakfast recommdations.

Next highlight was the room. I had very low expectations with a country property and expected out of date furnishings and decor with an overcleaned smell. What a surprise to be met with modern bright decor, big TVs and DVD player (although a DVD player in the second bedroom would be good if you had kids). Nice view over the pool are and right at the back of the hotel so it was very quiet. The only area not refurbished is the entry which does clash with the rest of the room.

The refurbished bathroom was also great. One thing that could change is the shower head. First it is not a strong water stream and second when you turn it on it sprays right out the door - not the cleverest design. I did appreciate the new towels which were thick and fluffy.

Nice gentle walk into the centre of town for the local bars and restaurants.

A great little find!

Hi Wockinwod,

Thank you for your comments on our motel. It is always fantastic when we hear how much our guests have enjoyed their trip.

We recently completed the final stages of renovations on the motel in January this year and the feedback has been phenomenal with guests like yourself being pleasantly surprised to be greeted with such a modern and tasteful room upon their arrival.

We have listened to your comment regarding the showerhead and its placement and are looking into possible alternatives.

We sincerely value your feedback and look forward to seeing you back at the Julie-Anna on your next visit to Bendigo!

My Mum and I stayed here for a weekend of shopping and site seeing , very impressed, great location opposite the lake, friendly staff, spacious rooms. Close to cbd, enjoyed a trip on one of the talking trams which you can catch just around the corner. Will definitely stay here again. Would recommend to anyone.

I stayed here for 2 nights for a work trip - it is opposite a lake that is great for a walk around after work. The rooms were big enough to have feel that you had space, the staff were welcoming and friendly. Have to also give a great recommendation for the food, I ordered room service both nights and had the steak both times- kudos to the chef it was great. I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Bendigo - it has been renovated recently it is well priced.

Attention to the small things make for a fabulous stay over on the way to the snow. It was the warm genuine welcome, engaging conversation, everything clean and working and the opportune upgrade from the complimentary continental breakfast to full cooked breakfast for $5 each that showed that extra attention to customer needs. Wonderful and we will definitely stay again

This was my first stop on a trip through North Central, North East Victoria. Received a very pleasant call on the morning of my stay confirming my reservation. A nice touch. Welcomed with a very friendly smile and efficient , and helpful check-in. Room was of a good size, and the absolute bonus of a separate shower, a real plus when the bathroom included a two person spa. Room and bathroom both very clean and well resented. Room had a view out to a very nice central courtyard which also provided access to the restaurant.

I had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Attentive staff, without being intrusive, and a very nice evening meal. Breakfast was limited(I chose continental only), but more than adequate, and it was included in the base tariff.
Bed was a good size, and relatively comfortable. It also had the absolute necessity for this time of year in Bendigo, an electric blanket.


Had the Fox Footy Channel, which I found to be a bonus on this two week trip. Surprising how many Victorian properties do not have it.

Check was efficient and polite, and the ever present smile.

Overall a very pleasant property, a short distance out of central Bendigo, but opposite a very pleasant Lake Weerona. Good staff, good facilities and reasonably well priced

We stayed here for one night, arriving after dark. The room was large, clean and the heater quickly took the chill off the air. The restaurant was not open that night, but a helpful young man at the desk directed us to a nearby pub. Our bed was comfortable, but the pillows were a tad hard and lumpy. The bathroom was huge and there was plenty of places to store our things. The artwork in the room was modern, tasteful and seemed to add to the room. Best surprise came in the morning when we opened the curtains to discover the courtyard pool bit. Made me a bit sad that we didn't have time to sit out there and enjoy it.
This place is clean and quiet and good for people with trailers as there is extra room for parking.
