Stayed for 5 nights in April 2017, ate in restaurant 2 nights. Very accommodating proprietors who bent over backwards to assist. Meals in restaurant $20-30 for mains, can recommend the snitzels, lamb shanks and chicken stir fry, the mixed grill looked awesome One certainly didn't need an entrée or dessert :)

This place is so charming , it's not grand or modern but it's not lacking in creature comforts. It's right on the highway as you enter town but surprisingly you don't hear the road traffic at night . Rooms are well sized ,good use of the space without compromising comfort. We had two of the family rooms & there was...

I loved this hotel. Beautiful and clean. Compact but had everything we needed including a microwave. Owners were delightful, putting bubbly on ice for us after a four hour journey. We were fresh and ready for the big day, next day. I also loved the table and chairs outside. We spent two lovely and peaceful nights thank you!

The Bandicoot Motor Inn probably isn't the classiest motel you'll stay in, but the room we had was very nicely refurbished and represented great value for money in comparison to the prices asked by other motels in the town. "Mine host" was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. The room size was not as large as some we've stayed in but more...

We were very surprised at how nice the room was, great services available and how cheap it was! The only problem we had was the lack of information... We returned late and wanted to order room service as it was advertised (but no times of availability were specified so, naturally, we just assumed that meant 24/7)... The rooms phone didn't...

We stayed here one night and found the room to be very neat and tidy. Although the room is basic its quite close to town and there's everything in the room you need. The lady in reception was very friendly and helpful. We had a meal in the restaurant and my husband said it was the best schnitzel he's ever...

Once a month our group of friends goes out for a meal. So over our time we have tried many restaurants- we live one hour from hamilton but ended up at the bandicoot after our planned restaurant was booked out. What a stroke of good luck! The restaurant has been recently updated and was really warm and inviting. The menu...

Our 2 nights started with a friendly welcome at Reception. Our room was Spotless with every thing we required for a pleasant stay in Hamilton. Great shower and having the hand basin in the kitchenette area meant I could shave whilst the bathroom was in use.We will be back.
