When I am travelling cleanlines and peace and quiet are high on my agenda and the Welcome Stranger more than fit the bill. It is quite typical of most regional motels - in its faded elegance - but is nice and clean and comfortable. There was also a continental breakfast included.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at5 the rear.

Stayed for two nights mid October. The motel is a little out of the way, but ok providing you have transport. Looking a bit dated, but the room was average size and bed comfortable. Our room was dark, and gave the appearance of being dingy.

Whilst the motel is on a busy road our room was very quite, however this may not be the same for rooms at the front.

Amenities were fine for our usage and whilst the price was a little on the high side, it was sufficient for our needs.

And for what seems to be an increasing issue in hotels and motels in Australia is the surcharging of certain credit cards, this motel wanted 4% to use a particular card, well over what this card would be charging the motel, and you are not informed of any surchage when making a reservation, only when you produce the card to make payment. Very unethical.

If your against credit card surcharging, look elsewhere for your accomodation when next in Bendigo.

This motel is dated but is very well kept with free laundry facilities and air conditioning etc. It also had nice bed linen arrangement with a proper duvet/comforter cover etc rather than sheet and wooly blanket that so many motels have - I very much appreciate this in a motel!!

what a nice surprise is this motel, it is a swiss like design inside with high ceilings and oregan beams, it is clean, and quite a spacious room with a large QS bed which was nice and comfy, one disappointment was the pillows, they were not the best and not very comfortable and as is the norm in most motels these days there was no spare one in the cupboard. also the outdated analogue TV needs updating so as to extend the range of channels available eg: One HD, the shower was rather small for a man my size but had good water pressure. all in all a nice, spacious and economical ($95) room that has no street noise and is value for money
