Tucked away off the main road and CBD Eureka Lodge is typical of the older motels dotted throughout country Australia. Parking is at your door, and the rooms are dated but clean. Features include a queen and single bed, large shower, toaster, kettle, etc. The linen is of the florally, non white variety but the bed is comfortable. Milk is... More

The tourist information centre recommended this hotel for us and she did give us what we wanted. A basic hotel. The rooms haven't been changed from the 70's but they were clean and the shower was lovely, great pressure and lots of hot water. When we booked in we were handed a large plastic jug with milk and 4 slices... More

I was impressed by the service and friendly staff. Quiet location, safe and secrure, clean, comfortable bed, large warm (May!!) room and hot shower. I would defiantly stay again. Great spot to stop on driving holiday to South Australia. Well done, great value for money. Many thanks. Easy to book and great local advice and travel tips.

It was cheap. But good service from the booking. The room was clean and well attended for maintaining the standards. If you are visiting Sovereign Hill a good stop to enjoy your night and have a rest.

this hotel is situated on a quiet side street opposite the eureka monument gardens and was blessedly quiet with no truck or train noise that spoils many country motels situated on the main roads. Rooms big and clean. free toast and cereal for breakfast was a nice touch included in the good value price.

I came across the Eureka Lodge Motel by google search as we were travelling thru to Adelaide from Melbourne after stopping in to Soverign Hill (Another must!) It's been a very long time since we have seen such old fashioned service which was a nice change to the big motel chains. Very helpful including the use of the laundry (and... More

I booked this place through Wotif for two nights. My brother was in Ballarat hospital. He was discharged unexpectedly and I needed to accompany him home to another part of Victoria. I rang the motel and was told I could cancel however since it was through Wotif I would have to approach them. Wotif were excellent and refunded me their... More

Beds were comfortable, large bathrooms, clean and tidy and... More
