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.

Stayed here for two nights with my partner and we were very happy with both the level of service and the room. I choose the motel because of it's proximity to everything, but knowing it was on a main road we expected traffic noise. Was surprised the noise died off a lot at night and was quite peaceful. We had... More

We were in Ballarat for a birthday so we didn't spend much time in the room, only to sleep. Everything was as you would expect a basic motel would be, although I do feel that $155 for such a small basic room for three people is overpriced. The staff were very nice.

Very clean and comfortable room. Enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. Only stayed for one night, but with the proximity to the main shopping area would be a good place to stay for several days.
