Fantastic comfortable BIG beds.CLEAN modern rooms.Quiet central location. Very popular amongst the locals and that speaks volumes for itself Friendly out going staff and owners who actually run the business! Take the time to get to actually know them. No reasonable request a problem!!! Secure safe off street parking. We ran a 2 day conference there and it was just... More

rooms are comfortable and fairly clean but I suggest getting a room that dosent have a window to the main road as it does get very noisy in the mornings, other then that overall good experience and service was great. Would stay again but only for 1 or 2 nights not a place I would stay for a long period.

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

Have stayed here on two separate occasions and both times we have had an extremely comfortable night sleep a lovely meal in the restaurant. Staff are extremely friendly and accommodating and location is easy to get to and from.

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
