We stayed here overnight, we just wanted a cheap motel for an overnight stay where all we were doing was sleeping and leaving early the next morning - so we didn't need anything fancy or pricey. The motel looks a little average from the outside and being an older motel I wasn't sure what to expect. The decor was a... More

We booked three nights here as it was just across the road from our old house and gave us some 'breathing space' whilst we made final arrangements to move back to the UK. It was a terrible mistake. The room was very small - so small that our suitcases had to remain in the car. There were holes in the... More

Nice place from the outside, very good wifi signal (4 SSID). However, in the inside, most sockets in the room are spoilt, minimum sockets to actually charge devices. Also bathing area is very cramped, water is actually very little, seems like they cut down on water. Lastly the most important, the bed is "sinking" which is very uncomfortable to sleep!

The room we had was small,but it was clean enough. It was equipped with small fridge,microwave,toaster and tea/coffee. The fridge and toaster need up dating. The best thing was the bed, very comfortable. The wifi was free and had good connection. Good for 1 night, but the room we had needed a spruce up.

We stayed at the Avenue in Ballarat on a Saturday night. I didn't really expect much because the price was very reasonable BUT the motel was terrible. The whole room was very tired and dirty. I was too scared to have a shower - it was filthy. The sink was all rusted and the toilet cistern ran all night. Someone... More

We stayed here recently on the way to Melbourne to get on the ferry to Tasmania. We were looking for cheap accommodation as we didn't plan to be here long. The place looks tired as are the rooms. The hand basin was extremely rusted, the toilet cistern leaked and the room didn't apart to be cleaned very well as our... More

My son and I had a pleasant stay, 2 nights in all, wifi present as advertised, clean tidy, everything worked, were glad of electric blankets. Shower recess needed an edging not just towels to keep the water in. Staff very helpful, Club across the road for meals, restaurant up the road in walking distance. Even being on main road no...

Very disappointed. Wifi unavailable even when standing in the office. There is no Austar, even though it's advertised as available. The rooms are tiny, the towels were frayed and old. If you want a nice pleasant stay, I would suggest trying elsewhere.

OK for 1 night - budget motel but we have stayed in bigger better rooms for this price. The cleanliness was just OK & it seemed to need an upgrade in most areas. Glad that we had a car as it was a definite requirement. Would we stay again? - maybe for 1 night
