The hotel offered everything we needed for a comfortable stop over after a long day's drive . Rooms were clean , and modern & very comfortable . Our family suite provided excellent accommodation for 2 adults and 3 children . The downstairs restaurant was also very good and reasonably priced with kids meals . A very welcoming and accommodating establishment... More

Formerly the Barkly Motel, this motel is a couple of hundred meters on one edge of the main town. Rooms are spacious with large bathrooms and good linen, pillows and towels. Large parking lot and an excellent restaurant visited also by the locals. We rated this friendly and efficient establishment as fair value

Booked this as a birthday stay. On first impressions the room was good and looked clean however on close inspection the doors were very dirty, slime on the hair dryer and tide marks round the toilet and taps. The room lighting is very poor and certainly needs higher watt bulbs. Our major gripe was the constant stench of cigarettes even... More

This is a good honest motel, nothing fancy but gets all the essentials right. Comfortable bed, effective heater, electric blankets, swift service & most importantly spotlessly clean. Would happily stay again for another business trip.

Our first stop in Ballarat during our recent trip to Victoria was of course to the Barkly Motor Lodge restaurant. Exceptional food and service once again. As always we were greeted and treated fantastically from start to finish. Food was wonderful and is greatly missed. We also love what you have done to the place also (new colour scheme and... More

We got a great deal for this stay through Agoda, THE most affordable in Ballarat and we were very pleased. The rooms were clean & cosy, not huge but more than enough room for us two, the carpet seemed nice and new. Check-in and out was a breeze. Total Bonus is Foxtel Movies & Sport, and the his & hers...

We spent a Saturday night at the Best Western Barkly Motor Lodge. I did notice an odour that smelt like cigarette smoke (although it is a non smoking hotel) near reception and the stairs but there wasnt any odour in our room. We had an executive room because it had a spa bath. The room was spacious and the bed... More
