The owners are exceptionally helpful and the bed was most comfortable. We honestly could find nothing to fault at all. For instance even the water pressure in the shower was great and the hot water stayed hot. Should we travel back to Victoria country in the future this will be high on our list on our list of stopover places... More

Staff very helpful re their town and personal requests! Bathroom could use a make over, would be only thing to improve. this was a return visit, will be back again! Kathy,... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff and management were welcoming and the room was spacious and beautifully presented. The booking follow up reminder and welcome were reassuring. The whole package exceeded expectations. A couple of minor issues. Noisy heater and dark room. Barry & Jean Curtis

Owners are very helpful and offer discounts on local attractions. The muffin on arrival is a great touch. Room was spotless if a bit drafty. Good dependable wifi and convenient straight shot to downtown. Coles market within walking distance. Would stay again

We arrived very late at night with 2 very sleepy children. A pleasant welcome to a spacious, clean room and the thoughtful management had put heaters on in preparation for our late arrival. The kids were very happy to see muffins provided for breakfast and fresh milk for our team and coffee. Comfortable beds. I would recommend this motel.

Hi Emma, Thanks for taking the time to provide a review - we really appreciate your comments and are delighted that everything was to your liking. No problems regarding the heating as Ballarat nights can be bracing and there is nothing worse than leaving a warm car for a cold room particularly with children. Good to see that the muffins...

Stayed 1 night in this lovely motel and had BBQ at the pit. A1 service as bowls, plates and utensils was gladly borrowed from the owner. Unfortunately accident happens and one of the utensils was damaged during the BBQ. Wanted to pay for it but the owner rejected saying it was ok. Will definitely stay there again in the future.

The room was adequate for our needs, clean, comfortable & well appointed. The motel is close to Soverign Hill & the gold district and the main... More
