We spent the night in Ballarat a couple of weeks ago. While this motel looks quite basic, the room was clean, the bed comfortable and the shower stayed temperature was constant. Lighting was adequate with a ceiling light which is quite rare. We were provided with free Wi-Fi which didn't drop out - all we really wanted. The staff were... More

This is a budget hotel. So don't expect the bells and whistles that higher priced hotels have. In saying this, this hotel is pretty good for the price. Room was clean, has what you need for an overnight or extended stay. I was here on a 40deg day and the air con only just managed to keep up. Pool was... More

As previously stated the Alfred Motor Inn is not modern and trendy but it is very comfortable. For a brief stopover it is fine. Clean and quiet. The microwave,electric kettle and toaster are appreciated. The owners are welcoming and helpful. For the price it is fine.

Stayed one night in June 2013. As was very cold weather, doubtful about how warm we would be (considering we had 2 young children with us this was an issue). The hydraulic heater was of no great help besides taking the chill out the air first off. However the convection heater in the room did a great job at marinating... More

Quiet, comfortable and very clean motor inn. Old style but very comfortable beds with reasonably priced breakfast available. For a one or two night stay with just sleeping accommodation in mind it is very adequate.

From previous reviews I knew that this hotel was not modern in it's decor. So it came as no surprise when we walked into our room and we felt like we had gone back in time to the 1980's. Decor aside the rooms are clean and spacious enough for our needs. As mentioned in another review the only sink is... More

Although an older style motel everything about the room was quite adequate. Check in was swift and fresh milk provided. Everything worked in the room we had (room 20) and the fridge was really cold and made iceblocks easily. Noise was not a problem and the owners were very pleasant to talk to. We are facing a number of trips... More
