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

Helpful reception staff at the check-in for our overnight stay during our roadtrip from Adelaide to Melbourne. Our bedroom with en suite was basic but in good cleanliness standards. The outdoor swimming pool could be a bonus but chill winds put us off from swimming!

I don't know what I was expecting for the price but this was very small. We booked a queen sized room but I'm sure the bed was a double. The place was relatively clean however they didn't really clean the rooms daily, they only made the bed. The location is not very convenient unless you have a car. All in... More

If you are looking for a very basic motel ( ie just somewhere to sleep) then this is perfect for you. The rooms are very, very small. The gardens are not maintained. The towels are old and fraying, milk wasn't replaced for the next day. The website stated 200 metres to shopping centre - couldn't find one within walking distance.... More

We booked a room for our family 2weeks prior to coming, I had requested a room with a double bed and a Single bed for our 3yr old, and we were told there is enough room to fit our portacot for our baby, when my husband went to check in he came to see that we only had a double... More

Had a room with new HEATING installed, a must for Ballarat. Friendly bloke on front counter, no fuss check-in. Linen was crisp and fresh. Bathroom could do with a reno but for $80 it exceeded my expectations.

Have checked in here for a few days, must admit I was a bit worried after reading some of the negative reviews but let me tell you, I had nothing to worry about. It's clean, it's well kept, it has everything I need for my stay. Love the fact it has a microwave oven so I can avoid the takeaway... More

We arrived at the motel after 8pm without a booking and were really thankful to be able to get a room for the night., at the price in Ballarat. The room we were given had a double and single bed ( we had asked for twin beds ), a small table and chairs to sit and eat at and after... More

Our room was clean, quiet and a good size for the price. We found the Management very obliging and friendly and the breakfast good value. The Bowling Club meals across the road were excellent and reasonable priced especially the pork .The mattress was rather too firm for us because it was new.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Ararat. Never again. The outside looks ok, and the cheap rate sucks you in. The rooms smelt bad: a combination of mould, dog and dust. Very VERY tiny rooms, old dirty carpet and I doubt the decore has been changed since the 70's. We didn't dare use the coffee facilities.... More
