Lovely motel right in the centre of Ballarat with very friendly reception staff. Room was very clean and spacious with very comfy beds. Loved looking out our window onto grape vines which made us feel like we were still at home. Our room was very quiet considering we were located near two very busy streets. The rooms however could do... More

Stayed here on Saturday 30th January. Location was terrific for us as we had only a 3 minute walk to the venue we were attending. The rooms have everything you need plus a bit more. Nicely stocked fridge of all you need to drink, plus spirits if wanted. Fluffy white towels, nice selection of toiletries and very clean. Housekeeping staff... More

Exceptional, friendly, prompt service that prove this couple know how to run a business. If only other hotels were... More

I stopped in quite late and hadn't booked ahead. I quickly got a room allocated from their after-hours staff who were very friendly and efficient. The room was basic but more like a hotel room - minibar, towels and soaps etc provided, neat new bed. Room was a touch musty, but they had aircon that diffused that. $119 for a... More

Huge motel with lots of rooms. Easy walk to any of the restaurants in town. The room was adequate but unfortunately the Wi-Fi was terrible. Several trips to the office to get passwords, even on the alternative access it was terrible. Also this motel was expensive compared to others we have stayed in recently.

The motel has a good, downtown location, convenient to all restaurants and attractions. On the downside, the lobby and rooms have not been updated since the 70s - great if you want an antique feel, but not very welcoming. Room smelled musty. At least the TV worked.

Overall, a pleasant stay, right in the city of Ballarat. This venue proved to be very convenient. Our unit 32/cottage was a spacious, well equipped, three bedroom unit overlooking the pool. We did not use the pool or their restaurant. Positives: Staff were friendly and helpful. Plenty of car parking. 2 hours of free wifi during our stay for use... More

$50 dearer than the Hilton in Adelaide. The towels were see through and thread bare. The shower was filthy with mould. The hair dryer had not been tested since 2010 ergo was well and truly a safety risk. The curtains were not attached to the rail letting in light the entire night. Power points were inaccessible under the bedside table... More
