Spent a night in a twin room close to the road. Was very noisy early in the evening but later on with less traffic managed a good nights sleep. Had a evening meal next door at another hotel which was well priced with good food. A 10% discount on food is available, if you show your Alfred hotel room key/... More

Posted on Booking.com among the mid-rate hotels of Ballarat. My wife and I were late arriving - so late that the Motel neon sign had been turned off making the motel difficult to find in the dark on a semi-lit service road parallel to the Western Highway. Unusually for a $100+ per night room (discounted via Booking.com), the decor was... More

Needed a 2 bedroom unit overnight for family 2 adults and 3 children. This motel is older style on the main highway. a bit of a drive out of town but was perfect for us at a very reasonable rate. A couple of restaurants nearby and a small shopping strip for takeaway food. Rooms spacious enough, main room ample seating,... More

We visited Ballarat for a wedding over Easter with friends and this motel was close to the venue and fitted within the budget agreed upon by the group. We stayed in room 19 at the back of the complex, which was quiet, very clean and quite spacious. Amenities included a microwave and toaster, as well as the usual kettle, and... More

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
