Not a bad place to stay in Bendigo. Rooms are comfortable. Has a pool,. It's more than a walk into town but the attached bar and restaurant are not bad. The food in the bar is quite good. The lamb rack was on the special board and was delicious.

It was nice. Parking is a little all over the place.
The food was good from the bistro, but they dropped it off at our room, and then the bloke dropping it off had no idea what we do with the tray after we were done. We put it outside like you would anywhere else, and it was still there in the morning. Tried to call them from the room prior to even ordering, and it just rang out.
Other than that, it was a pleasant stay. Bring your own pillow

Had dinner at the National Hotel tonight and had the best meal I've ever had! Lamb cutlets were incredible. Parking was a little bit hard because of how busy it was. Even though it was busy food came out quickly. Great service by very friendly staff.

We were looking for a nice Bistro to celebrate Valentine's Day and I must say that the food was superb, we couldn't fault it in any way... Steak was cooked to perfection and the best chips that we've ever eaten anywhere. We'll certainly be back here again.

Heat, storms, rain and no power...time to find a pub with air-conditioning, decent food and power. We had this pub on our agenda but had not found the time. Nabbed a table with no reservation...bonus. The menu had lots of interesting choices and we were both happy with our meals. Sometimes, it's the little things that make the difference for us. Being made to feel welcome and a table being cleared for before we sat down. Choosing a wine by the glass but not sure if it was right for me and being offered a taste. On choosing the wine having a fresh glass poured. We'll be back for the food and the service.

Went to the restaurant side and it was really good. Super friendly staff and the cocktails were tasty!

We had a big group and the food all came out together and fast as well.

The Gnocchi was nice and got to try the boyfriends Carbonara Pasta, very filling and tasty for both.

The Pork Belly got raved about by friends too.

Staying in the accommodation while we're travelling and decided to wander out the driveway and try the connected hotel for dinner. Very impressed with the food and service, definitely 5 star taste and beautifully designed and furnished interior. The staff were very friendly and attentive. It's our first time staying here but certainly won't be our last.

Had lunch at The National. Food was amazing, service was absolutely brilliant and efficient. Staff were extremely helpful and attentive to patrons. Highly recommend The National Hotel for a meal. Although one downfall was the coffee was revolting.

Ive eaten here many times,,, Tonight food was okay,,, but the service was ordinary,, i know 1 new staff member was on,, But after finishing my mains i waited 20 min for my plate to be removed,, and i had to ask for this to be done,,, frustrating as i was sitting next to the check in counter so plenty of staff went past and didnt notice,, So when my plates were cleared i said i have desert to come out,,, then i waited 20 min and still no desert,,, i asked where it was then saw them go to the kitchen counter and looked like no action was taken initially,, so they hastilly prepared I got it soon after,,, At the end of meal i mentioned this to a senior staff member,, he said yes since covid we have been understaffed,,, Well the staff seemed to be doing okay to me, But they could have been a whole lot better,, If your understaffed then the staff really need to be attentive and efficient,,,, So when you take full plates out look for empties to take back to the kitchen,, thats efficiency, also browsing the table to notice empty plates, and i didnt see that,, all up i could have been out of there 20-30 min sooner,, and others that they turned away could have had a table.
Ill go back hoping its better next time.

This Bistro is one of the best in the country, with 5 star food at 3 star prices. When friends visit Bendigo, this is a risk free venue for a lunch or night out. Great central location too. There is something on the menu for everyone, and at great prices. And the generous serving will be cooked to perfection. Hadn't been there for a while, and friends visiting from NSW motivated me to visit again just recently. Reminded me what a little gem we have here in Bendigo.

Always enjoy a meal here. Prices are reasonable and food is good. Their old seafood platter however was far better than the new. Still good though.

Lovely meal, great atmosphere, hospitable staff. Giving you 1 star for those horrible, ugly, uncomfortable little seats, stools, not sure what they are at the dining booths in the room on the hwy side at the far side of the bar. Please put some propper seating there

We just had my partners 30th party here in the Crown Lounge. Staff were so accommodating and helpful with letting us drop off balloons and cake prior, and to set up the room. They even had a TV and hdmi so we could put a PowerPoint on the TV! The food was incredible and super quick! We love coming here, it's such a shame we live in the Gold Coast. It was a lovely function room to be able shut the door and feel like the only people in the restaurant! So amazing!!

My partner and I came here expecting the food to be nice however we were disgusted and disappointed with the food we had ordered. We ordered oysters that came out looking and smelling off and slimy. I had the seafood basket , expecting more for the price paid but the plate wasn't even half, and with old lettuce and cucumber. My partner had the risotto which had too many strong flavours that ruined the dish. Definitely will not be back .

A group of us held a weekend reunion at the National in Bendigo. Everything went really well. It was perfect for us: space, meals, drinks, central location, meeting facilities, accommodation. Huge thanks to the thoughtful and obliging team of Bruce, John and their excellent young staff.

Great location, apartment we had was really spacious and had everything we needed. It was very clean and neat. We felt very secure there. It had a nice pool and spa. Signage could be better, it was difficult to find even with the GPS.

Staying at the hotel, room is nice. Everything you expect from a $150 room.

Headed next door for dinner in the front bar and had a very very tasty pork roast.

Juicy, amazing crackle and well cooked veggies. Half thinking of ordering another.

Kudos to the chef on Monday night!

Superb accommodation for the 6 of us. A really well set out apartment with room to groove and all the essentials catered for. Own remote controlled 2 bay garage was a fabulous added bonus! Hotel next door for dinner was not only convenient but lovely meals all round with a nice ambience. Close to facilities attractions and eateries.

We had a 50th wedding anniversary party in The Crown Lounge. The staff was very helpful right from the beginning when we went in to set up and put balloons and decorations out.
A waitress came in and suggested we order our meals soon, as a large group had just arrived and we would receive our meals quicker if we did. We were very appreciative that she did that.
The meals came out in a reasonable time and most people were more than happy with there meals.
Staff were very friendly and efficient coming in frequently to clear glasses and clean up.
GREAT SERVICE GREAT VENUE
Thank You for making our night so enjoyable for us and no hassle.
We will definitely return

My daughter and I visited the Bendigo Art Gallery recently to view and experience the Elvis Exhibition

We were recommended by a friend to lunch at the National Hotel in High St Bendigo

We were welcomed by the owner when we arrived and enjoyed a relaxing lunch

The restaurant was almost filled to capacity with two birthdays parties

Our thanks to staff of the hotel for their extra friendly service and local knowledge re shops in area which was appreciated by us

Well done keep up the good customer service

Perfect accommodation in the center of Bendigo, Quite, Clean, Fresh, very comfortable and Friendly. With central parking and Foxtel channels. You can order in or stroll to the bistro right next door. The meals excellent and affordable in a great warm and friendly atmosphere the famous Beechworth bakery in a short hop down the road if you would like a coffee and snack.
The Bendigo mine is just across the road with other great attractions nearby such as the Bendigo gallery, Iconic gardens, buildings and the gorgeous fountain just to name a few. Definitely the place to stay short or long term. I highly recommend you let them know on booking if you want to be down stairs

At a family function, in a room with up to 40 people. The room was small and not meant for that many people. Hard to move around and talk to people , or take a video. Meals looked good and were decent serves, but mine was warm, certainly not hot. Others had similar problems. I doubt I would go there again.

Extremely good and friendly service. Prices were very reasonable, even taking into account PH charge. Can't say enough about the service, particularly given they were quite busy and we had no reservation. Also have a good range of food including gluten free and vegan. Meals were delicious.
