We recently spent 1 night on route north. Very pleasantly surprised to find the owners go the extra mile. On checking in we were offered freshly baked muffins to have with our coffee, that was a first for me :) Although the motel is on the Ballarat/Geelong road it is well set back and we found it quiet & restful....

Even though I had booked ahead one overnight stay proved to be one of the best walk in motels I have visited. Including a welcome chocolate on your bed, except for breakfast, every facility you could imagine was provided at no extra cost . Ordering breakfast was a treat with a line to mark how you would like your eggs... More

We had another very enjoyable stay at the Begonia City Motor Inn on the weekend. Jim was helpful when I made the booking and Karen was lovely when we arrived, after our long 5 hour trip from Wodonga to Ballarat. The room was spotless, the beds were comfortable and warm, and our teenage son enjoyed the free wifi. Thank you,... More

I booked this accommodation with extremely short notice. Upon calling to enquire about room for a car and car trailer and then arriving to discover that there was more than enough room for our needs! Wonderful owners and gorgeous rooms - while the bathrooms are a little dated, everything is spotlessly clean and the spa rooms are SO spacious. I... More

We spent one night at Begonia City Motor Inn with our 8 yr old grandson in order to take him to The Wildlife Park and Sovereign Hill and were very impressed with the contact made prior to arrival, the friendly greeting upon check-in together with the offer of home cooked muffins to have with a cuppa. The room was very... More

The best service around. I received an email approx. 2 days prior to our stay, offering assistance to my husband & I. The room was value for money. Information about Sovereign Hill was great. Also options for places to eat was spot on & extremely welcomed. Thanks for a great stay.

We spent four nights at Begonia City Motor Inn , and we found it perfect for our needs. Out of town but very handy to all the main attractions. On the main road , but the units are set back, so noise is not an issue. Our room was spacious, with a super-comfortable bed, dining table , and lounge chairs.... More

Hi Stella9940, We greatly appreciate you taking the time to review Begonia City Motor Inn and for your kind words. As you rightly pointed out noise is not an issue as the motel is set well back from the traffic and a recent lowering of the speed limit to 60 has only improved the situation. Wonderful to know that you... More

We recently stayed here and unfortunately didn't arrive till late at night, the lamps were on in the room and heater on because it was cold. These little things were much appreciated and very welcoming. The room was comfortable and clean too. Thank you!
