We stayed for a very enjoyable two nights. The cleanliness and size of the unit is impressive. The unit was easily warmed and very cosy on a very cold day. The hosts were very friendly and we will definitely return.

A family run hotel with good standards. After spending the past 21 years in the tropics, travelling down south has forced some changes. We needed to find overnight accommodation on the way to Melbourne and found ourselves close to Ballarat. This motel is well laid out quiet and had great bedding. Still it was a bitterly cold night.

Stayed here for a night with friends in a two bedroom unit. Very comfortable and clean and plenty of basic kitchen equipment to whip up a meal. A supermarket and takeaway pizza shop are within a five minute walk so its really easy to arrange meals. This is great accommodation if you are passing through or staying for a few... More

Stayed with them in December 2014 with my parents, total of 4 adults and a child. The family room is quite large and the beds are comfortable. The price is very reasonable. They also sell discounted entrance tickets to Sovereign Hills, which saves a lot. The staffs are very friendly. I definitely recommend them.

We stayed as one night as a stopover before hitting the Melbourne traffic on a 5 day stay there to visit family and the shops. Friendly owner, offer to help with the Foxtel but we got it going OK. There is a great Pizza shop within walking distance. Just scraped in the front under 2.04 meters with the Pod so... More

G'day greynOmad2015, Fantastic to hear that you appreciated the warm and friendly atmosphere and so glad you weren't here during Winter!!! Sounds like Rio Bravo Pizza has another fan to add to their legions, it is so good to have a range of great sit down or take away eateries so close to the motel, five within walking distance and...
