I have the more basic room to the previous review - No dvd player, no bath, no microwave. There are no rooms which actually look over the lake, and the rooms at the back, back onto the train track.

I was on a business trip but took my 3 month old baby. They offered a portocot for $10 per night. Personally I think that's a rip-off in a country town.

There were large gaps in the doors (on both sides of the room) hence we were freezing. Yes there is a heater but it blows heat directly onto the main bed.

The continental breakfast was poor - No hot items except toast.

For $140 per night I expect better facilities. I also think 'resort' is cutting it fine.

The staff were very pleasant.

Like a lot of motels that have been renovated, the Lakeview motel or motor inn is now called a resort. I guess they are trying to move away from the seedier reputation and lower prices that some Motels have. This 'resort' has a small kidney shaped swimming pool in the centre of a courtyard that all the rooms face into. It was too cold and dirty to use for my stay, but I guess in the hot summer it would be a very welcome facility for guests to use.

The resort/motel is in a good location opposite a really nice lake; called Lake Weeroona. Although the room I had didn't have a view of the lake. I'm not sure if any of them have actually, as all the rooms face into a central courtyard! You can drive your car & park right outside your room - just like a motel. Although saying that, the hatch for your breakfast tray has been plastered over and there's no bare masonary wall like most Aussie motels.

The resort/motel is opposite the tourist tram line that takes you into the centre of Bendigo that is about a 15-20 minute walk away. Bendigo is a fine place with lots of lovely buildings from the gold rush days. I guess that the place was once awash with money.

The resort has a good restaurant with an excellent menu. Something that most motels don't have of course. Dinner is great, but breakfast was a bit basic. There are plenty of other restaurants & cafes etc., in the centre of Bendigo to choose from too.

The room was spotlessly clean and in good condition. It also had a dvd player and a microwave oven; but no bath, just a shower. Probably a good thing seeing as Bendigo is currently suffering from severe water restrictions and shortages. There's a bucket in the bathroom that you're asked to save shower water into.

The room I had has dual heating and air conditioning and a heavy bedspread and blanket. As the resort/motel is on a main road I did hear a few trucks going past during the night. If I stayed again, I would ask for a room further away from the road.

Overall a nice place for a night or 2 that is a notch above most motels. Friendly & professional receptionist. However, I personally wouldn't call it a 'resort'.
