We managed to get a night @ the Oval which is very convenient to the main street. The room was small & basic but was everything we required , clean & comfortable. They had a breakfast room...

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.

Had cause to visit Bendigo recently and not a lot of "lead in time". When visiting previously we always stayed at another central hotel, but unfortunately they were fully booked. Location was important to us and we wanted a "central" hotel. The Oval Motel seemed to fit the bill. We were pleasantly surprised with this property as it is listed...

I researched suitable accommodation for 18 people for a weekend in Bendigo, and the Oval Hotel was recommended to me as an Older style Motel, with a 70's façade and an updated interior. The rooms were well presented and spotless. Tea/coffee facilities with a fridge & T.V. in every room. We were very grateful for the use of the Breakfast...

Older 70's style motel with bathroom fittings and fixtures from that era. Small room and bathroom but comfortable and spotlessly clean, great value for money. 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!

Having stayed at the Oval Motel previously and been impressed with the location, service and room, we decided to return on a recent trip to Bendigo. 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...

Was booked for an overnight stay as part of a "corporate conference". Does look very dated from the outside, but the rooms were immaculately clean and tidy. Interactions with staff were prompt courteous and friendly. Plenty of hot water. Coffee/tea and toast facilities with a small fridge in the room. Continental breakfast for $8 in the communal breakfast room was...
