We have stayed here on a number of occasions, very helpful owners..Stayed in a family unit this time with our 6 year old son, lots of room to move, clean, serviceable rooms. Excellent parking, close to restaurants and good takeaways. We will continue to visit The Alfred again, Good value.

Not a good start reception couldn't find my booking, however they were able to give us a room, the rooms were tidy and beds fine, I was shocked to be charged $30 for my elderly mum sharing our room and using the single bed. We have stayed here sometime ago with the previous managers/owners? Since then the grounds have been... More

Not a good start. Reception couldn't "find" my payment of the first night, claiming they wouldn't have charged my visa card before we turned up. Luckily, they did find evidence of the prepayment and were very apologetic. The motel is on a main highway into Ballarat, but situated off on a parallel access road. During the night the traffic was... More

Pretty clean and semi comfortable beds but not set up for long stays for a family. Very outdated decor and bedding/towels. I'm glad I thought to bring our picnic set as there were only knives and teaspoons for cutlery and small plates, which were not very clean and not a lot of room for preparing food either. Only one basin... More

This was the last motel of our Holiday trip and although it looked a bit ordinary on the outside . the rooms were a surprise. The bed was the most comfortable of the whole trip. It is obvious the the owners are making an effort to update the rooms . The price was good and the rooms very clean and... More

If you want a clean, comfortable room but not resort style this is it. Reasonably priced with a pleasant garden outlook. We keep returning because it provides us with everything we need for a short stay.

Only stayed o/night but found the room comfortable and clean and a fair price for the accomodation.Advised to go to a restaurant just along the road and found this also a very good place to have a meal close by.

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
