I randomly went to ballarat on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th of August. By myself and I had no plans on where to stay so of corse I opened up trip advisor to find some where to stay. The central city was the closest place to me so I decided to pop in and have a look. I'm glad I... More

Booked this accommodation last minute when we were only about an hour away - based the decision entirely on price - what a great surprise we got! The room was absolutely spotless, added bonus of microwave (mini kitchen type facilities) terrific shower. Delicious economical cooked breakfast the next morning. Right in the city centre but not noisy at all. Hosts... More

Spacious and well appointed room, balcony was a plus despite the wet and cold weather. Close to the centre of town and other attractions. Will definitely stay here next time we are in Ballarat. Staff were very accommodating when we realised that we had not made the on-line booking specific enough for our needs.

This is a very well-run motel, not on the luxury end of build and facilities but well above the basic functional. I spent 3 nights in a good-sized, comfortable and clean room; no problems with road noise, as well insulated as possible from noise in the adjoining rooms, great heating for July, and nice breakfasts. Shane is a very welcoming... More

Great value for money. The rooms were very new, looks like there has been a major renovation. We were on the second floor facing the main road and the room was still very quiet. Breakfast was the best motel breakfast that we have ever had, and the price was very reasonable. With the Motel being so central there were numerous... More

Excellent affordability for a quick stay in the heart of Ballarat. Considering it is on the main drag noise level was minimum. We were treated with consideration and the hosts were more than happy to tend to our needs. For the price and convenience we will stay again.
