The hotel may not look anything special from the road but inside our room was surprisingly new and modern. The room was very clean, well equipped and appealing with new furnishings and bathroom. Comfortable bed and it was cold the first night we were there so we were really glad of the electric blankets - bliss! The shower had good... More

The Ballarat Central City Motor Inn is my preferred venue for overnight stays in Ballarat. It's easy walking distance to the railway station, which is the changing point for the airport shuttle, buses, and trains. On-line booking is simple. The rooms are clean and nicely presented, with comfortable beds. The staff are welcoming and helpful.

We are disappointed your stay was not as expected. My appointment was at 12.30 and I was back by 1pm so must have just missed you arriving early. The reason I wanted to check the room was that a guest had smoked indoors and I wanted to be sure it was aired. The shower base although new is faulty and... More

Pleasant central accommodation in Ballarat. Good value for money - comfortable bed, shower was certainly cosy, no major issues - numerous food options near by... Mall a short walk away. Convenient parking on site.

My adult son and I stayed here for four nights. The decor is modern and new, the bathroom was spotless and recently refurbished. There was a handy microwave, cutlery, toaster plus the usual tea and coffee. The nearby pub didn't make any noise that we could hear.

Very reasonably priced for such a great little hotel. Great location, although very close to a pub which might bother some (wasn't a problem for us). Really lovely room and comfy bed. Bathroom looked quite new and was very clean. Better than most hotels ive stayed in. Great stay :)
