"Friendly service, nice room."

12/11/2018

Room was lovely and breakfast was lovely. The hotel is on a main road so it can be quite noisy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Close to shops, restaurants, and the botanic gardens. The buildings are two story so if you don't like climbing stairs then make sure you ask for a ground-floor room.

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Cathedral Motor Inn and for your lovely comments.

Well presented rooms, no-fuss staff. Well pleased with the property in general. No issues with anything. Within walking distance of Bendigo CBD, which is why we selected it as we were there for the Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival.

RDearaugo, Manager at Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Shane for choosing to stay at the Cathedral Motor Inn for the Blues & Roots Festival. Our great central location would have been perfect for you to walk around to all the great venues.

"Welcoming and central"

11/11/2018

This is your classic seventies style, drive in, park outside your room motor inn however it's standouts are- it's welcoming staff, it's spotless condition and it's central location. And while the hotel itself doesn't have any green space to sit it adjoins a shady block with picnic tables if you do have time to sit and relax. We used the hotel as our base for the blues festival and were able to walk to everything.

Nice clean rooms , close to city centre, we were given the disabled room which took a bit of getting used to as the floor in the bathroom was very slippery when wet. Room was nice and quiet as it was in the corner of the hotel away from most traffic.

RDearaugo, Manager at Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your comments on your recent stay at the Cathedral Motor Inn. Our disabled room is a lovely renovated quiet room which caters for all our guests including a shower chair and a non slip mat to go into shower.

We had the family room for this visit, which could sleep up to 5 in two rooms. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for us, a short 5 minute walk to the centre of Bendigo. Whilst it was on the main road, there was no street noise.

The room was clean and comfortable and the spa was lovely. The staff were helpful and pleasant. However we were at the front of the complex and found the traffic noise spoiled the visit. The room needed double glazing or thicker windows, and I would stay at the back of the complex next time.

"Excellent accommodation"

We arrived early and the fantastic helpful reception lady checked whether our room was ready. It was ready and we were efficiently checked in.

My first visit to Bendigo with a tour group. Everyone at Cathedral could not have been more helpful, and the rooms were a good size with a high standard of cleanliness. GGreat location in the centre of Bendigo, vary handy for the Goldmine and Talking Tram. Highly recommended

"Wonderful location"

02/11/2018

I recently stayed for a week. The staff are very accommodating and delightful to deal with. I was staying in room 1 which is on the ground floor at the front of the premises. The room is spacious and comfortable but the only let down is the lack of soundproofing. The traffic noise takes a bit to get used to. The location was ideal for me being a solo traveler. It was an easy walk to shops, restaurants and local landmarks.

"Easy walk to town CBD"

31/10/2018

Our room was spacious and comfortable, very clean and an easy walk to town and a great Mexican restaurant. Lovely owners and reception staff. Ask for an upstairs room to get a view of the park. Downstairs views would be blocked by vegetation which gives privacy.

We stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in Adelaide for the same price as this stay. The room was suppose to be delux but I would describe it as a spacious room with a cheap up grade. It was fairly clean and quiet and the view of the cathedral was a bonus.

The location is 10 mins walk from the centre of town, the room was large for the price and was spotless, the bathroom also was perfectly clean and large, good water pressure. Breakfast was an option but we did not take this up, sort of looked a bit basic, we were more interested in the nearby cafes. Would gladly recommend this place for your stay in Bendigo!!

Booking at short notice was not an issue. Arrived early, not a problem as the room was ready, Great to hear. Had a Superior Queen booked, Nice clean room, amenities were well presented and modern, All channels worked on the TV and the heater worked fantastically. Windows were able to be opened and just a nice room with everything you need. I am on a crusade for fresh milk in hotel rooms. Thats the only thing that was missing. So why a 3? The room met expectations in a minimalistic way. Lots of room for improvement and for the price of $200 a night there is lots of improvement expected.

RDearaugo, Manager at Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Jacinoz for your comments on your recent stay at the Cathedral Motor Inn on a very busy weekend. Love your comments on fresh milk as that is one thing most of our guests comment on and enjoy the pleasure of taking free of charge to their room on arrival from the reception fridge.

Really happy with our stay here. Room was really clean and comfortable. It was a nice size as well so we didn't feel cramped. Bed was great. Had good sleep. Bathroom was a good size and really clean. Location is fantastic. We pretty much walked to everything. It was really good being across from the sacred heart cathedral as my husband attending a mass so it was nice and close. Would highly recommend staying here.

"Great service, clean room!"

Thanks for a great stay! Very clean room and great service.The room was close to town and I was able to get up a little later to get to work.If you are looking for a clean room with lots of space, then give this one a go.

"Great location for a relaxing stay"

16/09/2018

Stayed 2 nights during Bendigo's first White Night experience. The location was excellent being a 5 minute walk to the event but away from any noise. We were allocated room 19 upstairs which had a very pleasant view over a small park and the cathedral was lit at night making it very pretty. There was a small balcony you could access via a sliding doorway just slip a brochure or something when closing after you so you don't lock yourself out on the balcony. Room extremely clean and well equipped, you can request a microwave in advance if you want one for reheating snacks. Nice warm aircon, comfortable bed and couch. Very friendly service staff who were happy to top up your tea/coffee/biscuits etc. Reception staff Bernadette excellent with great local information and very welcoming making you feel they truely valued having you as a guest. They have complimentary fresh milk if you prefer at reception which is a nice option. Also wine and beer is available to purchase. Overall a nice relaxing stay and happy to recommend.

"Solid but with flaws"

09/09/2018

Nice large room, in nice condition. Let down in small ways only. You get what you are promised. Downsides? The room (25) was incredibly dark. OK for watching TV and reading in bed but that is it. Not nice to sit out an evening in. The electric blanket didn't work (my bad, I forgot to report it and management can't fix it if they don't know). And I thought it very expensive for what and where it was, but the competition was also a bit pricey. Upsides? Kitchenette really is good enough to cook a meal if all you need is a microwave. Genuinely well equipped with crockery, cutlery etc. Room has big TV with all the channels. Sensible parking outside. Pleasant staff on reception. Location is pretty central, too. I'll stay again if not banned for this review!

My partner and I recently impulsively stayed in Bendigo at the Western Cathedral Motor Inn. Impulsively, as he had not been to Bendigo before. The Receptionist at the Cathedral Motor Inn gave us a warm and very knowledgeable welcome, providing appropriate information on fooderies, sightseeing, facilities and history. Our Unit was clean, spacious and comfortable with everything we could expect. As well as this, the Motor Inn was in the ambit of the stunning 3 spired Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. A beautiful venue.

Another overnight stop at this quality motel in Bendigo. Next to the Cathedral, walking distance to the centre. The room was in excellent condition and nicely kitted out. The owner confirmed my conclusion that it was recently renovated. It is good to see a business continuing to invest to maintain its standards and reaping the benefits in repeat bookings. I will continue to stay here when breaking journeys in Bendigo.

"No help from reception to deal with noisy guests"

11/06/2018

Motel is well located and spotlessly clean. While the motel is quite old, the rooms have been refreshed recently and are quite spacious. Our problem was with very noisy guests at 0430hrs in the adjoining room - far too early to be awake! After the noise continued for 30 minutes, we referred to the guests handbook which listed the reception phone number for any problems. We rang in vain with no one answering our call so had to put up with the racket for two hours. When reported to reception in the morning I was told I should have rung the mobile number listed for the motel. Absolutely no help after the event, so why wasn't that advice included in the guests directory!

RDearaugo, Manager at Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Have_Bag for your comments on your recent stay with us. Unfortunately most of our guests on a week-end come to have a fun time and enjoy themselves. It is also unfortunate that when residence/reception did not answer at 0430hrs you did not ring motel phone number which is in all our rooms and gets diverted to the manager who would have addressed the issue.

28/05/2018

Great central location from the CBD. Staff were very friendly on arrival and shared lots of local knowledge. The room was spacious and clean as was the bathroom. Unfortunately the bed was lumpy and the pillows were way too soft and I ended up with a sore neck, which required a professional massage to be able turn my neck without pain. We were moved rooms due to unadvertised renovations, which was great but the noise early next morning allowed for no sleep in, after picking my husband up from the airport bus after 10:30pm. Wasn't a restful experience like I had hoped for.

RDearaugo, Manager at Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Tanya for your comments. It is unfortunate that out of the five pillars that are in all our rooms you couldn't find one that suited you and as no other guest has mentioned a lumpy bed l cant imagine why you found it uncomfortable but for this l do apologise sincerely. Unadvertised renovations were not advertised as no renovations have been carried out for 18 months at our motel. But on a positive side l am glad you found our staff friendly.

Friendly efficient receptionists, room well situated away from highway traffic noise. Our room was beautifully appointed with plenty of room. Bathroom had adequate bench space which we find imperative and room to move. We stayed in Room 25 which I would request again as it was on a downstairs level situated in a corner. Access to water & hose for our car was appreciated. Facilities allow for several days stay with laundry, micro, toaster & generous supply of milk, tea, coffee etc. Motel ideally situated near fine foods & within walking distance to shops.

"Good motel a short walk from the city centre"

05/04/2018

I stayed here for one night. Friendly and helpful staff on reception assigned me a room in the block at the far back of the hotel. I thought the double bed was a bit too firm, but not exactly uncomfortable, and the shower was good. The room was also furnished with a small sofa, a table & chairs, quiet a/c unit on the wall, TV on the wall, iron & board, a small fridge, microwave, sink, kettle with tea & coffee, crockery/cutlery/etc... The free wifi worked ok. This hotel has free parking onsite, and is about 10 minutes walk from the city centre. The only real problem was the 2cm gap at the bottom of the room door, which I had to block with a pillow because it was *very* windy that evening, and I was sitting in a draught.

This accommodation was booked for me by work based on its location which is brilliant. Walking distance to everything in the CBD. The staff are more than helpful - they go out of their way to assist you even before you have asked. The rooms do not have a bar fridge which is stocked with temptations (great idea) you help yourself to small containers of FRESH milk each day from a fridge in reception. You can also buy alcohol there if you want. The rooms have a small kitchenette with crockery & cutlery for 2 people and a microwave. Wonderful if you are a fussy eater or have dietary restrictions. Beds are comfortable, air conditioners quiet. Gardens well maintained. Safe off-street parking. Free laundry, car wash area and even rainwater if you prefer it! Loved this place and will be happy to stay there each time I am required by work to go back...

I stayed here 3 nights for work & was really disappointed in the poor quality of this motel. The room i was in was pretty poor and smelt pretty bad & old. Desperate need of a renovation. There was no chairs & table outside most rooms which was disappointing but in saying that the way the motel is positioned the sun glares right to your room it's not enjoyable sitting out there anyway. The only thing that was great about this place was the service, really friendly & very helpful. I wouldn't stay here again because of the quality of the rooms.

27/09/2017

We have stayed here before, and had good memories, so it is a pleasure to come again. Reception staff are friendly and welcoming. We have a delightful upstairs room with a view out across lawns and flowering elm trees to glimpses of the Sacred Heart Cathedral beyond. I would choose an upstairs room for the view, but there are stairs. The room itself is large with plenty of character. The large windows have arched tops, and open out onto a small balcony. Three Chinese paintings decorate one wall. There is plenty of space for storing cases, a sofa, table and chairs, and a queen sized bed. The room has tea and coffee making facilities, and a generous biscuit provision. Bendigo is a cold place, and the bed has electric blankets. A thick extra blanket is provided, and we find that this together with the silent air conditioner on low keeps us snug overnight. The ensuite is large with a satisfying shower and a vanity with lots of bench space. We appreciate the cake of soap and various shampoos. We enjoy the breakfast which is delivered to our room. The free wifi is easy to use and permanently on; it does seem to slow down in peak periods though. Short wish list: a heat lamp for the cold bathroom, and a restaurant with buffet breakfast! The motel is in an ideal situation for us, with a bakery two blocks down the road, and the city centre a short walk in the other direction. We would always come back here.

"Pleasant surprise and a hidden gem"

Stayed at the Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn for the first time in Bendigo and was pleasantly surprised. Having stayed at a number of hotels over the years in Bendigo, the Best Western has great rooms. The rooms were spacious, well appointed and had lots of extras. It is well located so we could walk into town and the car parking is an absolute bonus.

RDearaugo, Manager at Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Peter for sharing your experience at the Cathedral Motor Inn and your lovely comments on the motels great location and spacious rooms. A lot of our guests take advantage of our off street free parking which enables our guests to take the short stroll in to the centre of Bendigo to our great tourist attractions and restaurants.

Stayed one night and were given a refurbished downstairs room. Very large room very nicely furnished. Wifi excellent, toaster and jug provided for in room tea and toast. Comfortable bed, good linen and towels. Plenty of hot water and good pressure. In room heating was excellent ( necessary in Bendigo in winter). A nice walking distance to shops and restaurants in the CBD. Highly recommend.

Good value centrally located, good advice on dining options. Good clean rooms well appointed. The room I was allocated was fitted with disabled facilities and although I do not have any disability thought the room was well set up for a variety of special needs and was most spacious Enjoyed our stay after a big traveling day

"Great Customer Service"

30/08/2017

My reason for staying here is a long story. To make it shorter, I was was given very bad service from another motel in Bendigo which resulted in me looking for somewhere else to stay for the night. I called the Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn, the phone was answered by Phillis who was very helpful & went out of her way to make me feel welcome. Based on this experience I would be happy to stay here again.

"Wasn't a Deluxe Room"

I specifically booked a Deluxe Room. Wasn't put in a Deluxe Room. This was disappointing. The Standard room wasn't as nice as the deluxe looked. Otherwise, had a nice stay. The motel was walking distance to shops and cafes. Great location.

RDearaugo, Manager at Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Kim for taking the time to comment on your stay at Cathedral Motor inn. It is also disappointing to us that you were disappointed in the room you stayed in. Unfortunately the online booking you made came thru on our system as a standard room. On the brighter side we are happy you enjoyed our great location to Bendigo's amazing cafes, restaurants and shops. I hope you will choose to stay with us on your next visit and maybe ring us direct to enable us to give you the correct room of your choice.

14/08/2017

Love this place! it is my new go to in Bendigo. Typical Best Western, but it has been refurbed and the bathroom is great. the rooms are quiet large - plenty of room to work and spread out if needed. the rooms i get have a small kitchenette (like to take care of myself due to ridiculous work hours. The bed is also comfy. Parking is a little weird, and it is only a few blocks from the Beechworth bakery (i'm a fan!) . The staff are also lovely here. There are upstairs and downstairs rooms - but no lifts, so just be aware.

"Clean & Tidy"

13/08/2017

We had indicated on our booking form that we would arrive between 8 - 9pm. We had a call from the motel around 6.00pm confirming our time of arrival. Thought that this was a really good thing. Not sure if it is normal practice. There appeared to be plenty of off street parking which was good. The room we had was large and clean. The only thing that I would look at ( and this is personal ) is the height of the shower and the water saving rose that's on it. THROW IT AWAY. While we were able to get under the Shower ok, I think that some of our family, should they stay, would find it challenging. But as I said, these are only personal opinions. The shower was great and the hot water, unlike alot of motels, came through fast and had plenty of pressure. We would definitely stay again.

RDearaugo, Front Office Staff member at Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn, responded to this review
So glad you enjoyed your time with us. We endeavour to ensure our rooms are extremely clean and presentable at all times. We look forward to seeing you again and making your stay a pleasant one. Regards, Janet Reception staff member

"Cosy but a bit dark"

13/08/2017

Room is spacious. We stayed in the room with a spa bath. Our room was number 3. Only very minor complaints, we had an old looking room, which was a bit dark even with the lights on. I hope they update the room soon. While my electric blanket worked, my partners did not. Receptionist lady was friendly, also housekeeping seemed nice as well.. (Most housekeeping people in other places we have stayed in dont even make eye contact). Spa bath was nice and relaxing. -Great to have a spa bath with the tv on. Bed was very comfortable. Location was great. Overall, I hope the room gets an upgrade. Either way, it was a nice place to stay in and if we are back in Bendigo, we would love to stay here again.

"Lovely motel"

11/08/2017

"Pick of the bunch"

06/08/2017

Stayed here for the first time. It was genuinely of the best accomodation options in Bendigo at a reasonable price for a family. Stayed in the family rooms with a queen bed and separate room with 3 singles. Location very close to town. Walking distance to most attractions. Ample parking. Very friendly and attentive front of house and housekeeping staff. Have stayed in various serviced apartments and motels (family rooms) in Bendigo and this would be the pick of the bunch.

"Clean and well kept"

We found our stay at the Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn very pleasurable. The facilities were good and the place was very clean. Street noise was barely discernible. It was also important to us to know we could park our vehicle close to our room and away from the street.

"The most relaxing and friendly stay I've ever have"

5
19/07/2017

Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn was easily the best, most relaxing, enjoyable stay over I've ever had. I've stayed in some incredibly expensive 5-7 star hotels all over the world; but the peace, the friendliness of all the staff (especially reception and management) , the great breakfast, the view to the Cathedral, were just what my doctor ordered (or should have) so I told him. I went for one night, and each morning I'd ring and extend it a day. Sometimes two at a time. I never wanted to come back to this mountain of work I still haven't caught up with. But it was worth every late night I've had to have had real time off in a friendly homestyle place. I'll be back there any day I can.

"Best location to see Bendigo"

25/06/2017

This is an older style motel but has all the modern amenities, is clean, quiet, comfortable and most of ever so accessible to the city of Bendigo. 10 minutes walk southbound gets you to the Beechworth Bakery and the Central Deborah Gold Mine, as well as the start/end point of the Talking Trams/ANZAC Tram tours. 10-15 minutes the other direction gets you right into the heart of the city. The majestic cathedral is literally a stones throw away. The queen sized beds we felt weren't quite queen sized and the one we had was rather bouncy, however that isn't really a fault. You really couldn't be happier with the location and cleanliness at the end of the day.

"Wow"

"Very handy location"

20/06/2017

I have stayed several times at the Cathedral Motor Inn on business trips, generally just an overnight stay. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. Although on the main street leading into the city centre of Bendigo it is very quiet and there is little or no traffic noise. Breakfast, served in your room, is also available. The thing I like most about the motel though is its location. A block away from the majestic cathedral and only a couple of more blocks to the city centre, where you will find many restaurants, bars, shopping and other attractions. Leave your car and walk.

"Two thumbs up"

Very obliging and friendly staff who were able to accommodate our room request, at last minute, after it had not been conveyed by room booking agency.

The lady at reception was extremely friendly and helpful telling me all about the room and giving me some directions of where local places to eat were. The room was very clean and spacious as was the bathroom. The lady at reception gave me a bottle of milk when I commented that I didn't like longlife that was supplied in the room. A very nice quiet motel with lots of parking. Very reasonably priced and o r of the nicer motels we have stayed at in that price range. Would definitely stay again. I love that the motel had a bucket of water for cars near reception and also a vending machine outside for those late night soft drinks. Reception had a fridge with mini bar type snacks also. Thank you for a great stay

We stayed at this motel for one night. The room is well appointed with plenty of room for luggage and a good sized bathroom with a vanity with enough room for toiletries. The staff were excellent, providing us with suggestions for walks and meals.They do provide a breakfast, but we decided to try a local restaurant. There are two lounge chairs in the room and an adequate TV (which we did not use), which made us feel very comfortable. The room was clean and three large bath towels were provided The motel is situated near the Cathedral and it's a short walk into the CBD of Bendigo. This is an very good motel and we would stay there again

We were quite impressed with the size of the room, lots of room to spread out and relax. The bed was large and comfortable nothing like having a good nights sleep and waking fresh. We ordered Breakfast and it was large and everything well cooked. We were impressed with the Gluten Free options and there was no contamination. If you are GF you know what I mean. The rooms were so clean I could not fault it at all in this regard. Great stay and yes we will stay here again next time we are in town.

21/05/2017

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in May celebrating our 54th wedding anniversary. We arrived by train from Melbourne and it was an easy 15min. walk to our accommodation from the Central Train Station. Our Standard Queen Room included a small well lit kitchenette with a microwave, toaster and sink. The room it self was pleasant and comfortable with the exception that we would have liked more lighting in that area. The reception staff were extremely helpful and patient helping us connect our electronic devices to their wifi network. The motel is well situated for walkers and we managed 59kms over our 5 day stay, including the Bendigo Creek Bike Path. For those who don't want to walk and don't have their own car, there are local buses you can can take to get to the many attractions Bendigo offers. We were quite pleased with our stay and would not hesitate to stay there again.

20/05/2017

The room was large and comfortable with full self catering facilities.Roomy bathroom. It is a little way out of town so unless you want fast food you will probably need to drive into town.

Its not double glazed so there was a little road noise in our unit (room 29) but not so much as to be a problem. Aircon was very efficient and the quiet setting was very quiet. Easy stroll to city centre. Staff friendly and helpful. Would stay again.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights when we stayed in Bendigo as part of our tour of the Victoria Gold Mining areas. It was recommended by, and booked through, the tourist information office that can be found in the city centre in the Town Hall. The hotel itself is right next to the huge imposing cathedral, hence the name. We were given room 29 on the first floor of a two storey annex at the back of the hotel. The room was clean and quiet, with a nice kitchenette. It offers free wi-fi and a free guest barbecue. Althoug it is out of the centre, it is an easy walk back into Bendigo centre to the shops, pubs and restaurants. All in all a nice clean place, with friendly staff. We would have no problem staying there again.

To be honest, I didn't expect much from this Motor Inn but was pleasantly surprised. I was given the disabled room and found it spacious, clean and comfortable. The bonus was the kitchenette where I could prepare my own light meals. Close to many restaurants though and walking distance to all that beautiful Bendigo has to offer. Stayed three nights, visiting friends and exploring surrounding areas, but next time, shall stay longer knowing I can make the BEST WESTERN Cathedral Motor Inn my 'home away from home'.

We stayed in a double spa room at this hotel recently. The receptionist was very friendly and our room clean and quite satisfactory. We had the "spa" room as it was the only room available and even though the room was right at the front, on the roadside, we didn't notice the traffic noise until the next morning. The decor reminded us of hotel stays 20 years ago but nonetheless this was a fun stay for an overnighter. The walking distance to very good restaurants is a plus for this Motor Inn.

"Wonderful location and excellent motel"

22/10/2016

We stayed during the past week. Two rooms. The rooms were clean and that is the number one priority for us. Apart from tea and coffee making facilities, there was a microwave if you wanted to re-heat food. The staff were most helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I was surprised when the fruit that I ordered for breakfast was actually freshly cut with a variety of fruits. We found the motel quiet during the night hours with heavy traffic starting up again after 5am. The motel is close to many old and beautiful historical houses and the magnificent Cathedral is across the road. There is a great hotel Bistro within walking distance. We would certainly stay at this motel again.

It always was good, but this time the renovated downstairs room was excellent. There was plenty of space, and reasonable privacy without having to close the curtains. The club chairs were comfortable, as was the bed, the shower was like a massage, the room facilities offered every comfort. Our welcome at reception made us feel valued. Breakfast the next morning included the best-cooked fried and poached eggs! Add the location, easy walking distance to the CBD, Cathedral and Art Gallery, and this property provides a great base for a visit to Bendigo.

Stayed here for 2 nights & chose the Cathedral Motor Inn based on Trip Advisor reviews & its No 1 ranking which it lived up to. Room was great, location was ideal & in easy walking distance of Rosalind Park & its beds of colourful tulips. Located across the road from the amazing Sacred Heart Cathedral - a must see...

Since we last stayed here 6 years ago, the rooms have been given an upgrade. Our queen room was large and had a sofa, dining table and chairs. Plenty of on site parking. Location is walking distance to the city centre. While we were staying there was an issue with our room's smoke detector which was handled quickly and effectively.

In Bendigo there is a limited selection of property types, mainly mid range motor inns. Cathedral is a stand out so far due to the incredible service (friendly, available, practical) and the excellent location in easy walk from the town centre, and about 10 minutes walk from the railway station. The tram is at the front door. You earn QFF points :) Oddly one thing is the windows are not double glazed against cold or noise.

This is a great motel, close to everything, with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and well maintained and there was plenty of space in the bathroom. We travelled with extended family and had rooms on both the lower and upper levels. All had a view of the cathedral which was particularly spectacular at night. Highly recommended!

Best Motel in Bendigo!! I have stayed in many hotels around the area for work. Best Western Cathedral Motel is my new favorite. Very clean and affordable. Centrally located. Onsite parking. Reception ladies couldn't help me enough. And free wi-fi! #bestmotelinbendigo #no1

Very nice room on first floor, overlooking small park. Better than usual motel room lighting. Well-designed spacious room and bathroom. Brilliant shower. Air-con and electric blanket very much appreciated during wintry temperatures. Less than 10 minute walk to centre of city and heritage features.

"The BEST best western of our trip!"

09/09/2016

We stayed at a few best westerns over our month long trip down under. This was the pick of the bunch. It was easy walking distance to Bendigo centre, the staff were very accommodating, but most of all it was easily the best value best western we stayed at. People questioned why we added Bendigo to our trip. It was on a friends advice, and we were so glad we did. Lovely little country town.

"Excellent - no problems here"

07/09/2016

After encountering a couple of very over rated places it was refreshing to actually stay here on the last 2 nights before heading to airport & home. Very clean & very comfortable at quite a fair rate. Short walk eating houses of which there are many to choose from. This was by far the best of this trip in August 2016 & will certainly return here

"High quality, good value motel, walking distance to central Bendigo"

07/09/2016

I was after a high quality, good value motel, that was within walking distance of central Bendigo, and I found exactly that in the Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn. My room (Deluxe Queen) was clean, modern and bright. All the appliances worked perfectly - heater, electric blanket, kettle, fridge. The bathroom was large and modern, with great water pressure and lots of hot water. The motel is on the main road in to Bendigo from Melbourne but the traffic noise was barely audible during peak hour, and couldn't be heard overnight. The wifi worked well, there was off-street parking, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The motel is an easy walk (10 minutes) to the shops, restaurants, parks and attractions of central Bendigo. I would gladly stay at this motel again.

Our stay at the Great Western Motel was a suberb visit. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very neat and clean.

Thank you for your hospitality.

The motel is well located close to the main part of town & right next to the cathedral. Only drawback is that traffic noise could be heard, even though we were in one of the rooms furthest from the road. We had a standard room in the back section. It was a good sized room with a partial kitchenette (sink, toaster, jug, microwave, bar-fridge, loads of bench space & cutlery and crockery). Bed was a bit soft for my liking, but OH thought it was fine. AC worked. Roomy bathroom. Everything was clean & worked. A 2-seater table with chairs (a bit wobbly) & a 2 seater sofa (sofa bed?). Looked like there has been a coffee table but not one when we were there. Overall, comfortable, good location & good value

26/08/2016

We were staying at the best accommodation we could find at the end of each day on our road trip around Victoria's lush countryside. We decided that Bendigo was as far as we wanted to go that day so drove around looking for something that appealed. Just a few blocks from the Sacred Heart Cathedral we found the Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn. We booked in asking for a quiet room and settled for a deluxe double that ticked all the boxes for us. Not only was it quiet, despite the traffic outside, it was really spacious,had been recently refurbished and felt brand new, decorated with restrained modern elegance. Restaurants were only a couple of blocks distant (though we could have opted for room service) and the motel seemed to be central to all the attractions that Bendigo offers, including its excellent regional art gallery.

"Clean and Comfy"

16/08/2016

The Cathedral is really good, very clean rooms and the bed is very comfortable . Only down side is being on them main road. I had two different rooms as my stay was unexpectedly extended. The rooms around the back are better as you don't hear much traffic but the front ones are fairly noisey.

"Comfortable and relaxed stay"

14/08/2016

This was my first stay at this motel. I booked 2 rooms for myself and an employee. We found the rooms to be very clean, comfortable and well appointed. My only comment is that the pillows and mattress were both rather hard for my preference. This of course is not a poor reflection of the motel, just my personal preference. The staff are friendly and the service reliable and prompt. Our breakfasts were hot and tasted good when delivered which is a real achievement, even in a 5 star establishment. We are booked in again for this week so looking forward to a similar experience.

Located just next to the cathedral, and about a few minutes drive to CBD, this motel has very friendly staff at the reception. It offers a very clean room, with electric blankets. The room we got was huge with twin beds and a table to work on. Still it had plenty of room. Well equipped kitchen. Bathroom very clean and not freezing cold like other motels I stayed before. Water pressure is good. Laundry is FREE (so we washed a lot of stuff) and there is a free laptop to check email in the lobby! The room we had faced the garden area. It was very nice!

This Hotel was my second choice as my normal hotel was fully booked, but this one is going to be my go to hotel when I need to stay in Bendigo. The reception staff were fantastic and as it had been booked via the Internet for me, I didn't have time to look it up as it was booked on my way there. I needed to change my room from a first floor one to a ground floor one which was done within a couple of minutes of my arrival. The rooms are clean and airy with some nice prints on the walls. There was a kitchenette in the room which wasn't expected but would be good if you were staying for a few days. The only down side was the split system wasn't heating but it wasn't an issue as even though it's freezing in Bendigo the wasn't cold. Big bonus was the large shower cubicle and queen size bed. The brand of complimentary coffee was bitter but the kooka's cookies more than made up for that. There isn't an onsite restaurant but there are 4 of the big fast food chains with walking distance and lots of cafes as well. For those with the Pokemon Go addiction the park next to the hotel is a poke stop and the church around the corner is pokeman gym. The cathedral next door is a sensational piece of the craftsmanship of the stonemasons that built it and well worth a walk around it.

We stayed at the BW Cathedral for a couple of nights for a weekend away, the lovely lady with the blonde short hair in check in was so helpful and very friendly she made us feel very welcome and gave us some great tips for the weekend. We stayed in one of the front road facing rooms 12- the rooms was quite big and very clean. It had everything you would need for a few nights away- We had free wifi for our stay which always a bonus. I think this motel is in a great spot if you want to explore Bendigo you can park your car here and walk to the cbd in a few minutes there is also some great restaurants in walking distance. Phyllis on check was bubbly and also friendly-thank you for a lovely stay- we would definitely recommend this motel to anyone wanting somewhere clean comfortable friendly close to Bendigo cbd

Room was clean and well maintained but the grumpy manager overcharged when I paid the bill on the final evening to speed up check out when we left the next morning. Had to retrieve our paperwork to prove I should be paying 10% less. Practically threw the credit card back across the desk and we discovered she had switched our WiFi off when we got back in the room. Petty and unprofessional. There are plenty of other accommodation options in Bendigo that can treat you better than this.

Dear DoctrWho, We are sorry to read your review.There was a mix up with your payment following the initial rejection of your first card and we would like to apologise for that. We aim to give friendly and professional service at all times to all our valued guests and we very much regret it if you feel this was not the case: no offense was intended in any way. It is not possible for us to disable internet access so l can assure you we did not do that. I hope you might be able to give us a second chance next time you are in Bendigo. Regards Rosalie

Large room with a few extras. Accommodating staff who happily changed rooms for us to a better bed configuration. We had a front room meaning there was some traffic noise, however nothing that disturbed our sleep.

We had stayed previously at the Cathedral Motor Inn ten years ago until our very recent stay. The rooms are quite well appointed and spacious, the service was friendly, and the motel is incredibly well located to the heart of Bendigo. We did have a good sleep and the bed was comfortable; however, we were in a room close to the main road, and there is a quite a bit of road noise - we slept because we were exhausted from too much driving ! The hotel has free wifi, but we found that it dropped in and out a fair bit, which was a bit frustrating.

Our group of three stayed in a family room of one double bed and two singles located upstairs. Our window overlooked a lovely park with a view to the cathedral and city. A balcony enabled an outdoor panorama. Rooms was very clean and tastefully decorated. Beds all had electric blankets, bathroom toiletries plentiful and of a good standard. Heating adequate but goes off when you leave the room and you need to restart it. Wi fi worked a treat. A very comfortable stay.

02/07/2016

I booked the motel after reading positive reviews and was very happy with the choice. The room was absolutely spotless, quite comfortable, within easy walking distance of the town centre and many of the local attractions. We were in Bendigo for the Marilyn Monroe exhibition and it was an easy 10 minute stroll to the arts precinct from the motel. We spent two nights here and didn't need to use the car at all during our stay with restaurants and pubs also within walking distance. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this motel for short stays in the very lovely city of Bendigo.

"A Very Pleasant Stay"

I chose to stay here with my husband for 2 nights after reading previous reviews and it totally lived up to it's reputation. The location is excellent - close to the city with easy walking distance to many amenities and tourist attractions; quiet; very, very comfortable, clean and attractive room (in freezing winter weather!); excellent, helpful staff/service; lovely surroundings with beautiful Cathedral and wintery park seen from our window and a very affordable price for 2 seniors. Thanks for our very enjoyable stay and it will be our choice for next time!

"Convenience and comfort"

28/06/2016

We have stayed at several other motels in Bendigo during previous visits but decided to try this one, especially as it was close to the Gallery where we were going to view the Marilyn Monroe exhibition. We not only found it convenient and comfortable, but the service was friendly and efficient. Our every requirement was met without any hesitation. When we checked in, there was much activity at reception with a number of travellers all arriving at about the same time, but everyone was attended to quickly. Everything is set up to ensure prompt attention e.g. we could help ourselves to milk in a fridg. in reception without having to wait, questions about local restaurants were easily answered and menus produced from a rack containing a variety of brochures for activities in the area. Above all we found the room clean and well designed with tasteful décor. Our one night here was a pleasant experience and we would choose to stay here again when in Bendigo. The location is perfect for visiting many of the attractions.

23/06/2016

Well situated close enough to walk to Shamrock Hotel and CBD. Staff very helpful and friendly. Lighting in our room could be better - no light over the table for eating and also very hard to read maps and tourist information. Needed to go into bathroom or use the kitchenette and stand while reading. No WIFI as it was out and had to call for assistance with the bathroom sink and TV channels. Overall the room should have been cheaper. We found other accommodation cheaper with free breakfast. Have used Best Western before and unfortunately this room was not up to scratch.

We stayed in a family room (double room, sleeps 5) located towards the rear of the property well away from any road noise.

I liked this motel because the location is within walkable distance of the centre of town. Very clean, beds comfortable. My room was noisy ....the noise came through the connecting door and through the thin walls. On one side we had the cougher and on the other side the snorer. I think that rooms in this price range should supply a microwave. They are not expensive. Many ageing baby boomers who like to travel are on special diets and find microwave ovens far more useful than an iron and ironing board.

My third visit to the Cathedral was the best yet! It's been renovated and is wonderfully welcoming-fresh milk, scummy cookies and great breakfasts add up to a great stay.

Cathedral Motor Inn has to be the best value for money in Bendigo. The staff are really good, the rooms are clean, modern and really family friendly. Value for money and within walking distance of all the local attractions. We wouldn't want anymore for the family.

This is an excellent motel in a very good location - about a 5 minute stroll to the centre of the town. Our room was very clean, spacious and well presented. We were supplied with plenty of tea, coffee etc., soap and towels. One concern we initially had was that it might be noisy from the passing trucks, but we hardly heard a thing. There is no mini bar, but supplies of beer, peanuts etc. are located in reception. Staff were all pleasant and helpful.

We stayed in Bendigo recently, arriving at our motel early. Our room wasn't yet serviced, but our host arranged us a room that was available. This is always appreciated when you are driving and would like to unload and unwind before going whereever you're going in the town. A big tick :-) The room was fine, clean and spacious. The property isn't new, so don't expect more than a very effective place to stay. Location, just away from the centre of Bendigo but still on the main road, is great. We walked for no more than 10 minutes, found a great place for a drink and then another for dinner. Even with the traffic, our room was quiet enough. It's a shame that motel car parks sometimes have to accommodate larger trade vehicles. Nothing about the people who are presumably doing expended work stints nearby, or even on the motel itself, but having a large vehicle and trailer parked right outside your room doesn't make for an easy exit. We'd have no hesitation going back to the Cathedral Motor Inn on our next visit to Bendigo.

Motel is conveniently close to town. Rooms were clean, comfortable and appeared to be fairly recently renovated. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our big dissappointment, and main reason for only giving an average rating, was the water temperature in the shower - one second scalding, next freezing, no matter how you tried to adjust it. I don't know if it was just our room but it made having a shower extremely frustrating.

The Cathedral Motor Inn is well situated within walking distance of the CBD and various restaurants. Our room was comfortable, clean and well appointed with a kitchnette area for self catering. The bathroom was spacious and modern. Aircon was efficient and quiet. Free wi-fi was good. We would stay again.

We stayed at the Best Western Cathedral Motor Inn for 1 night. The reception was big and the check-in was smooth and quick. We parked right in front of our room, very convenient. Spacious room with a comfortable bed and a good size flat screen tv. It was a very warm night, but the aircon kept the room temperature in a pleasant low 20ºs. Brand new bathroom. We had leave early in the morning, so we did not have time to order breakfast. It was a top quality stay. We will stay again.

My husband and I booked 3 nights with Cathedral Motor Inn and absolutely loved it. Cannot speak highly enough of it. Rooms were very clean and quite large. Loved the small kitchenette with sink. Location is fantastic, within walking distance of town and Beechworth Bakery! It was extremely hot during our stay - 43 degrees, but the air conditioning in the room was fantastic. Staff and Reception were faultless. Cant wait to stay again, in fact already planning our next trip to see the Marilyn Munroe Exhibition.

The Cathedral Motel in Bendigo is one of our favourite destinations. It is perfectly located to shops, eating venues, entertainment and the beautiful Sacred Heart Cathedral. We were welcomed by Janet, a friendly, polite and most helpful person who could not do enough to ensure we had everything we required for a comfortable night's stay. Our departure was done in a similar manner. The room was bright, fresh, clean & beautifully appointed with more than enough room to allow us to relax in comfort. All provisions, like tea coffee shampoo etc. were generously supplied. We certainly look forward to our next Bendigo visit. When planning your trip , book early as this Motel is often booked out due to its popularity... no wonder as it is certainly hard to find fault with the Cathedral Motel.

We just stayed 2 nights at the Cathedral Motel. The room has been renovated & had a double, single & single sofa bed. The beds were comfortable. Our 12 YO stayed on the single sofa (she's on the smaller side) & had no complaints, but its not really big enough for an adult. The shower was also good, did notice Temp fluctuating one morning but nothing drastic.The Room was very clean, it had the usual basics such as tea, coffee etc. Would be handy to have some bowls & forks in the room. We ordered the Bacon & Eggs one morning & it was very good. I dealt with 3 office ladies who were all very nice, polite & helpful. Our room was facing High St & I thought it would be really noisy but the traffic died down & there was limited noise, we all had a great sleep. Its very close to town, short 10min stroll. Great Stay & would stay again.

Travelling a long distance on a business trip, we made an overnight stop here to break the journey. This building has a little age on it, but has been very nicely maintained and updated here and there, making it quite comfortable. All the usual amenities are provided, and the old fashioned breakfast on a tray through a servery door remains - maybe not to everyone's taste these days. Cafes are only a short walk away so if time, weather, and circumstances permit, you can wander along for a cafe breakfast in the CBD.

We found the office staff very helpful indeed, knowledgeable and easy to talk too. Our room was large and very clean, we had a deluxe room. The staff looked after us and helped us out with information about the town. The only negative in the night there was I am a light sleeper and I found the traffic noise loud but my partner slept soundly. They have a great breakfast menu. the eggs were cooked just right. We would return to this motel again. It is very central and within walking distance to the city centre.

We stayed here for 2 nights over Christmas. It was much more than what I expected for a Best Western. The bed was comfortable and rooms clean.

We will definitely stay again next time we are in Bendigo.

The hotel was within walking distance of Bendigo centre and easy to find on the main road. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was incredible with a spa bath in the corner of the room, just great after a day sightseeing in the dusty goldfields. We had a room facing the road, so there was traffic noise - didn't bother us weary travellers though, but you might want to check on that if you are a light sleeper.

On a motoring tour of Victoria we ended up in Bendigo for no other reason than this was where the evening fell. By chance we found this motor inn near to the centre of Bendigo. This was a lucky choice as we were welcomed by the Manager, Rosalie DeAraugo, like long lost friends. We were offered a room inspection. We were given information about Bendigo and lent a book of architectural features, and directed to local restaurants. The rooms were well appointed, breakfasts came as ordered, wifi was free. Checking in was quick (as was checking out). The location was extremely convenient. When we decided to stay an extra night, there was not the slightest problem about this despite the motor inn being heavily booked for that night. One of the best motels we stayed in for our entire trip. Highly recommended.
