Tea House Motor Inn
Ranked #11 of 25 Hotels in Bendigo
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I had a lovely one night stay here. The room was clean, towels big and soft and the bed was comfy. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The location is lovely - right near the lake and not too far from city centre. The breakfast menu was reasonable and even offered cappuccino and smoothies which were great. The pool looked inviting and surroundings were very appealing. There was a BBQ area with gas BBQ that was also well presented and free for quests to use. I would highly recommend this motel to all. Thanks for having me!

I loved the fact that this was a small hotel but was in a beautiful position opposite the lake and great for walks. I was also within easy reach of bars and restaurants. The rooms were really good quality and very fairly priced. They were clean, well decorated and I loved the large, extremely soft towels!! My collaegue also stayed in another room and she made exactly the same comment. The manager was very helpful and welcoming. Would definitely stay there again

We wanted a simple place for just one night in Bendigo. We booked this place through the tourist information bureau in town, and could not have been happier. It is easily located on one of the main streets, and although it is on a busy road, the motel rooms are located far enough off the street that it was whisper quiet, which is exactly what we wanted!

The staff were very friendly, and we were very happy to have use of the complimentary laundry facilities. There is also a pool which looked lovely, although we did not go for a dip ourselves

The room was nice - it looked like it had been recently refurbished, and was nice and spacious. There were also outdoor chairs provided, so that you could sit outside on the little front porch. However, we found with the direction of our room, that it was a bit hot in the afternoon to do so, although it would have been quite nice in the morning, when there was still some shade.

You are right across from a lovely lake here, so you could always just wanted across the road for a breakfast or afternoon tea and enjoy the surrounds.

When we checked out, we were given a cute (and functional!) car aroma thing. Nice touch!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room at the back, to ensure you stay away from the busy main road.

Comfortable 2 bed apartment, everything working and new, a good bathroom and great towels. Out of city centre but only a 20minute walk. Across the road from the lake. Bendigo is a beautiful city , most enjoyable for a two night stay.
Pool was lovely in the heat.

Only issue is lack of shade, plenty of space to grow some trees, this would really improve the ambience.

Room Tip: 2 bed apartment good for 3-4

The staff at reception were very helpful and polite. Our room was clean and well presented. Even though it is on a main road, there was very little sound to disturb our sleep. We would definitely stay here again. We stayed in an updated room and were very happy with it.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 10 about halfway back in the complex
