Stayed for one night in a standard motel room on our way through Ballarat. The rooms were clean and comfortable but a little dated and tired I believe the new owners are in the process of renovating. The staff were very friendly and made some excellent recommendations for food as their restaurant is not quite ready yet. I will say... More

It is a pleasure to be able to recommend the Ballarat Colonial Motor Inn and Serviced Apartments to you once again. School holidays having arrived, my husband & step-son were planning for a weekend away. The usual discussions are held as to where they would like to go & the Ballarat Colonial Motor Inn was their choice, having become a... More

We booked weeks ahead for 2 nights in a family room/apartment for 5. I called the day before to see about 3 of us arriving early requiring a dbl plus child. We were quoted and accepted, but were told there'd been a mix up and they'd originally only booked us for one night instead of 2. Luckily that was rectified... More

This was a weekend away to the footy in Melbourne so we drove from Adelaide stayed at this Motel then went by Train to the footy. Although it is on the Highway it was quiet and the rooms very large and good value for money. It is a bit tired but the young couple are upgrading the place gradually.

We stayed in the twin apartment, which is actually 2 rooms with kitchenette and nespresso machine. Our host provided a friendly welcome and helpful information. Room had been renovated and was very clean. Great place to stay on the Melbourne side of ballarat.

Stayed for 3 nights in 2 bedroom family suite. Hosts friendly upon check-in. Room was very small for 4, but beds were comfortable. Adequate blankets. Very cold in Ballarat at the time of our stay. Reverse cycle A/C stopped working after about 3 hours (luckily I packed a small fan heater), and room was very drafty through the window. No... More

I had two separate stays at this motel in one week - the first time in a double room, the second in an upgrade to a two-room apartment. Although the first room was in great need of a good dusting and a refit - cracked tiles being the main problem, plus tired furniture - the motel's location was ideal for... More

Has had a bad rap with previous owner but new owners are really doing it up. Fantastic service and comfortable clean room. Great pool and service. When the restaurant opens (very soon) it will be fantastic. Good luck guys you deserve all the best.

Ballarat was booked out but due to a last minute cancellation we managed to get a family apartment here. The apartment was so much bigger than we expected and we were very comfortable there. The kitchen is great when you don't want to be constantly buying take away. The laundry with sachets of laundry liquid was a bonus when travelling... More

My husband & step-son stayed here for one night in January 2014 and had a lovely time. They described the staff as extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable and my husband, whom has back trouble, stated that he even awoke feeling very refreshed and pain free! The bathroom actually included a spa... More
