Recent guest reviews

Wonderful place, neat, clean and very quiet, despite its location close to Bendigo. Lovely room, friendly staff, and a wonderful breakfast. Great value and great location. Undercover parking and a lift, very handy for any oversize cases.

It is the first hotel that all the rooms on first floor.undercover parking for all. In the centre of the rooms 1st floor is a very large courtyard with plenty of tables and chairs, there also a BBQ for use. Outside Pool is great and believe is heated. Great to meet up with all. I had a disabled room and it was set out the correct. (it has been a long time that there was a self in shower). I am leg amputee and found it hard to get under the shower. But I do not think non better for disable.

Rarely do I sleep well in Motels but the bed was great. Service from the staff from check in to check out was very good & also accommodating for the parking of my trailer request despite not having a lot of room. Overall a very good place to stay & I would highly recommend the Crystal Inn in Bendigo to anyone.

Was driving through Bendigo looking for a room for the night.. came across this Best Western motel & was very happy & pleasantly surprised. The room was the last one available & being on my own was a real treat having a huge bed all to myself. Complete with spa bath, small kitchenette but very well appointed. The service offered here was exceptional, nothing was a problem whatever I asked for all done with smiles. My room eleven was very clean with nice fluffy towels & when asked about a microwave... no problem was delivered & installed in a matter of minutes. Sharon & Tim are the owner managers here & they run a fantastic motel based on customer & guests receiving the best service. My personal rating is 20 out of 10.. brilliant rooms & awesome service. Thank you Tim & Sharon for being so friendly & nice.. made my visit to Bendigo just great.

We stayed at this hotel earlier this week when my daughter was unexpectedly ill and we couldn't drive. The receptionist was very helpful and allowed us to check in hours early so my daughter could rest. Room was a good size and clean. Ordered room service for dinner and the roast lamb was really yummy. Big serving. Plenty of free parking. Con - advertised as free internet but it is only 500m. Although we were given 3 log ins to give us 1.5gig, that was used up within 2 hours. Then you need to pay. Luckily I had data on my phone plan. Rooms a little dated. Not a lot of amenities but was good for what we needed.

Usually stay at All Seasons so was pleasantly surprised. Very quiet and lovely outdoor area. Neat, tidy, clean and good undercover parking. The welcome from Erin was superb and nothing was any trouble. Only disappointment was no fresh fruit for breakfast, a small issue. Will be back

The lady host was very friendly and helpful. The premise is well kept up, neat and tidy with everything in good repair. Parking is mostly undercover. The rooms nice and beds comfy with sufficient extra bedding. A few km from the Bendigo CBD.

Erin and the team looked after our family so well during our recent stay. Rooms warm and welcoming when we arrived and nothing too much trouble...even switching our electric blankets on for a late evening arrival back! Many thanks!

This is the first time we have stayed at the Crystal Inn and it will not be our last. It all started with and friendly welcoming telephone conversation to book our room. On arrival we were greeted with a great smile and open arms so to speak. All car parks are under cover so your car is not sitting out in the melting sun or pouring rain, so accessing your things is easy regardless of the weather. The rooms are spacious and comfy. The most important component is of the course the bed, which is warm and comfy. The bathroom is generous with room to move. After being in a number of hotels overseas where drying oneself in the bathroom is a task of its own, it was wonderful to have room to move. One thing missing in many places today is a reasonable sized baggage stool, Not at the Crystal Inn. The generous baggage stool enables easy access to your bag and plenty of room to lay things out. There is of course a wardrobe; iron & ironing board; a comfy sofa, generous size table/desk and chairs; a coffee table to spread out on and so on. Although the size and comfort was truly wonderful the thing that made it all worth while was the warmness from both the owners and the staff who were ready to help in anyway the could. You may arrive a stranger but you leave a friend and can't wait to visit again. It really did feel like home away from home for us.

This is the first time we booked here - it won't be the last. Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help. One huge bonus with cold winter nights is that car parking is all undercover - all rooms are upstairs. A lift makes arrival and departure easy. We enjoyed our stay.
