really nice place, staff were lovely, food came out hot and fresh within 20 mins of placing the order :) i ordered the pasta calabrese, asked for a couple of changes and they got them all right! partner ordered chicken parma and said his was good too. main was a nice portion size that we left feeling full and satisfied but not overly stuffed with just the one meal :)

A very welcoming venue, with friendly and efficient staff, a diverse and high-quality menu. It seems to be a popular place for parties.

I particularly like the Southern Fried Burger - notably crisp and flavoursome.

Amazing venue, awesome atmosphere and staff, kids packs handed out at reception so kids were entertained from the start, awesome tap beer selection and bar layout, but I thought the food was a little average not a parmas I would boast about or go back for and considering the "kids parma"is just a little smaller and $4 less I would've expected the "full parma" to be a little bigger, fantastic salad and gravy, and the desserts were absolutely amazing

What a stunning hotel! The food is so good! 10/10 had the Barramundi , beef ragu pasta, chicken & veg, & chicken mango salad are my favourites so far ?

Great feed and staff! Had the beef ragu pasta and would definitely go back just for it again! Not loving the qr code system to order but can still see the staff at the bar.

I will not be recommending the Botanical Hotel to anyone.
I ordered a porterhouse steak with mushroom sauce and salad.
The steak was ok, not the most flavoursome I've had an the "salad" consisted of a pile of bokchoy with a bit of onion and 4 slices of cucumber with a drizzle of some sort of creamy sauce.
I ended up scraping the sauce off the steak as it was too creamy and ignoring most of the "salad". Definitely not worth the $37 that it cost.
Teena's spag bolognaise ($28)had some meat hiding amongst the spaghetti and Riley's pork tacos (2 of $16)also had some meat hiding in them.
I ordered 2 pots of beer and was informed, rather rudely, that "I don't do pots, I only do schoonas or pints!
Since when has Victoria turned into NSW?

This hotel is amazing.
The staff are very accommodating to your every need.
Food is delish and the bar staff are always happy to work with you to find a drink you want.
Will definitely dine here more often

Been there 3 times, twice have totally screwed orders. Unable to handle group orders obviously.
Mentioned my meal wasn't right, waitress came back with receipt. Because THEY'D taken my order (and others) incorrectly, refused to fix the problem. It was obviously MY fault!!
Not to mention the eye roll from the waitress when I mentioned the issue.
REALLY poor form there, upstart.

Awesome meal and service! Table 19 next to the fire. Thanks Matt for the great service with the kids and local knowledge. It's hard to find places with great service but this place ticks the boxes.
Would definitely recommend this place is tops!

Came for dinner with my partner and daughter tonight. Partner had chicken parma, daughter had kids fish n chips and I had beef ragu and all were delicious and full of flavour. And the service, definitely one of the most friendliest restaurants I have ever been to, nothing was too difficult and done with a smile. Will definitely be back

Lovely atmosphere & staff. My hubby loved his burger but the salad I had was very disappointing. The beef was dry and the salad seemed to be just a cheap Lettuce mix. Would consider visiting again, but I would choose something different off the menu.

Such a lovely pub, stylishly renovated. The food was fantastic as well. Definitely recommend The Botanical. (photo is of beer garden, where we ate. Inside decor is quite lush).

Great atmosphere. Love the ease of ordering and paying through the QR code, no split bill messing around. The food was good quality pub food. My only criticism was how often we were interrupted by wait staff, at one point we had three different people come within 30 seconds of each other, which was incredibly annoying.

Ordered the Parma chips and veg with gravy and fish and chips with veggies. They have different sauces available over to the side and orders are done via the QR code online or over at the bar which is simple to place orders and make required adjustments if needed.

Would like to say we spent a great weekend in Bendigo and had two meals at this hotel . The hotel has a terrific ambience to it and its quiet to the point where you can enjoy a conversation with your table and not have to yell and strain to hear. Staff are friendly, welcoming and with the new tech way of ordering made it simple and hassle free when it came to choosing our meal which freed up the staff to take care of more time consuming jobs . The meals arrived in a timely manner and were very delicious. All in all I would recommend this hotel for a stop in

At the Botanical Hotel 555 Napier St Bendigo we were met at the entrance to the indoor dining space by a welcoming quick witted comedic hostess. We were swiftly seated at table 37 directly in front of the gas burning log fire which was toasty warm on this cold winters night. The two meals we ordered from the extensive menu were Calamari with salad and a Supreme pizza along with drinks. Both meals arrived promptly and at the same time. We were both impressed with meals and quality of them. Well done to the attentive and professional staff. We will return.

Had a lovely lunch here - the price and the size of the meal was just right!! The only slight criticism I have is that the coffee we were served was extremely and I mean extremely hot. We couldn't pick up the glass for about 20 minutes and didn't finish our coffee till after the meal which would normally be fine but it was delivered about 10 minutes BEFORE our meal. Other than that we definitely will be returning - it was great! I should say also the staff were fabulous!

Food was ok, dessert was great (bootoki) and service was very good. Pity about the grumpy owner. Make sure you have your vaccination certificate with you.

Limited menu but reasonable prices. Very dark lighting inside. So dark that it strains your eyes. A lot of flies inside and outside dining

Lovely environment and great food. I just had the little garlic pizza and a cappuccino which was great and the chicken mango salad I had last time was outstanding. I am moving in just the other side of the gardens in a couple of weeks and I would love to see a few seniors options available.
