I was pleasantly surprised by this motel...after a couple of very average motels along the Great Ocean Road, I wasn't expecting much. The motel is on the outskirts of town, in the suburb of Delacombe, which is 6km away from the centre of Ballarat. Despite this being a bit on an industrial area, this motel was tucked away on a...

After some not so nice accommodation in Melbourne, we were very pleased with this motel. We stayed in a family room for two nights. The man at reception was very friendly. Room was clean, nice linen etc. Full size fridge, toaster, microwave, some plates, bowls and cutlery. Small amount of mould around grout at bottom of shower. Don't judge by... More

We were travelling through to Melbourne and booked this via the internet. Good clean, comfortable budget motel. We were surprised how well set out and spacious the room was, and the hand basin located separately from the bathroom was convenient. Although we usually like to walk to dinner, the drive into Ballarat took only a few minutes and the selection... More

It suited our purpose perfectly. While in need of updating outside and garden and bbq area maintenance, it is very clean and reception was very welcoming. Room 10 had been revamped and had everything for a clean comfortable night sleep. It was quiet and warm with excellent heating and a good strong hot shower.

While looking quite innocuous from the outside (in fact a little dated) you are not prepared for what lies within these rooms. Not only are the rooms quite large but they have been updated and renovated to an amazing standard. All appointments within these rooms are very good and have to be seen to be believed. I cannot say enough... More

We had someone pull out of our group, leaving 3. We had booked 2 twin rooms. The manager suggested that we share a family room and he would try to rebook the second twin share room that we had booked. He did rebook it and has refunded money to me for the person who couldn't come. He could have just... More

The owners still have a little work to do but unless your staying At a $400 per night hotel it's... More

Ok, so when you first check in at reception you think, omg, what have I done....but do not be fooled.....reception badly needs an update but the rooms.....very, very nice for such a cheap motel. My friend and I stayed for just one night and wow, after reception, we walked into a gorgeous little room each. Rooms have been beautifully updated....little... More
