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

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

My recent stay at this hotel was most disappointing. It was a business stay and the booking was made online. My late arrival was unavoidable and I was welcomed upon arrival even though everything had been locked up. The first step into reception was greeted with an overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke - it was overpowering. Upon checkin I was... More

Barkly01, Owner at Country Comfort Ballarat, responded to this review

The Barkly Motorlodge is 100% non smoking and does not have smoking rooms. Occasionally guests choose to ignore this. Reception closes at 10.00pm and from what gather from the staff on duty that night, they stayed on late to facilitate your late arrival. As noted in our guest information, there is always someone contactable 24 hours a day and the... More

We booked the Barkly not knowing what we would find when we arrived. The price of the room was more than reasonable . A great time was had by all. The staff were lovely,and accommodating . The room was clean and very comfortable and very quiet. But the absolutely best thing about this motel (amongst a long list of best... More
