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...

We stayed at this motel last year , we must have been lucky with the room we were given, I gave it a good review. We booked into the motel this year and when ready for bed I found the electric blanket did not work on my side of the double bed I was sleeping in.. I switched the electric... More

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

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
