August 2016 my husband and I stayed 4 nights. The room and facilities were very clean; the hydronic heating is perfect. The proprietors are welcoming and go out of their way to assist their customers.

Walking distance to main street, local pubs, cafe's, restaurants and museum. Bedding was new and fresh. Nice owners. Only negative was other guests (some sort of tradies) getting up at 6.30 am and having a...

I stayed at the Oval Motel during the Bendigo Writers Festival and it was lovely. My room was absolutely spotless, facilities were great, and the people were really lovely and helpful. The only issue I had was very minor: I was in a room a little too far from the wifi modem!

This motel is still good value for money, the rooms are comfortable and clean, the people in charge are friendly and efficient, and it is not too far from the centre of town. I...
