Room for $93 had an electric blanket that didn't work (on a freezing Ballarat night) and a curtain on the shower (ugh).There were lots of signs about penalties for breaking house rules that would incur a $250 surcharge e.g. reversing car in towards units, cooking in rooms, & etc. Bedside lamps had low wattage globes that were too dim to...

The rooms are very clean, have been renovated and are well equipped. This motel is excellent value for those who aren't looking for five stars but who want good facilities, good service and plenty of comfort. Lovely warm room. Comfy bed.

This place looked run down on the outside, but when we opened the door to our room we were pleasantly surprised. Clean and recently renovated with a comfortable bed. The heater was noisy, but warmed the room up nicely. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. Great value for money!

Our family of four stayed here over the Anzac Day weekend. Hosts very helpful with restuarant tips and demonstrated an understanding of the needs of a family travelling with small children. Rooms were clean, beds extremely comfortable and heating worked well. Seperate bedroom was an excellent size and kids were very excited that they had their own TV. Cannot recommend... More

Our family of three had a very pleasant stay at Peppinella, in a room with a queen bed and a single. The room was well stocked with all the crockery and cutlery we needed for breakfast and snacks, with a microwave, kettle and toaster provided, as well as a coffee plunger (Yay!). The beds were comfortable, and the motel is... More

Stayed here for one night and was very pleased. The room was clean, well equipped and it had the most fantastic shower! Free wifi was provided but only 200mb which soon ran out as both my daughter and I were using it. The beds were very comfy. Only thing I didn't like was that there's no hand basin in the... More

Old on the outside but impressive inside. Quiet location, exceptionally clean, excellent value and very pleasant hosts. Beautiful new crisp linen, great pillows and comfortable beds. Nice variety of good brand tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits and 'hot chocolate'. All the little extras were provided. Microwave and full size fridge...

Stayed for 1 night for an early job interview the next day. The rooms are comfortable and carefully designed with everything you need. Very clean, friendly staff, good value, would stay there again if I needed to stay in Ballarat again.

Rang this motel to book a room on our travels and was advised if I didn't have a credit card I couldn't book a room or I could pay with cash as long as I left a $250 deposit. I have never heard anything so stupid. We have been travelling 2 weeks from Qld all around Vic and Sa and... More
