Only there one night but it was a great budget stay. Jan was delightful and helpful. Basic everything but adequate, and quiet. Continental breakfast in the room. Clean and very acceptable. I doubt if you could find anything more reasonable and well located in Ballarat.

This motel is part of the Budget Motel Chain. We booked this last minute as most of Ballarat accommodation was booked out due to a music festival. I travelled with 3 friends and we booked a family room. Going by the picture on their website, this had a separate bedroom as well as a small kitchenette. The room we got... More

Because of a vehicle breakdown on a Saturday afternoon, while on our way from Port Fairy to Katoomba, we were booked into this motel by the NRMA. What a pleasant stay it was. Jan was very welcoming, had the air conditioner running in our room because it was an extremely hot day. She made sure I was okay when dropped... More

The room was very comfortable and clean and would highly recommend to anyone travelling looking for a good night sleep. Also the location of the motel is very convenient as it... More

Motel was great during our stay. Hassle free, the lot. Until a bag was accidentally left behind after our departure. Rang up to see if the bag remained, and found that it was there. Had it picked up and brought back to me in Melbourne about 10 days after our stay, but everything inside was missing. Was told that the... More

My husband and I recently took friends from the UK to Ballarat for a family reunion. I found this motel online and we were all delighted. The motel is in a very convenient position to Ballarat, Sovereign Hill and anywhere else you may want to see. The room was very comfortable, the shower was excellent and provisions for a light...

We stayed in a motel room (not a cabin) and it was roomy enough for 3 adults and 1 child. Manager/Owner was absolutely lovely and went out of her way to make our stay very comfortable. It is also half way between city centre and sovereign hill. Quite handy.
