We stayed here before, but in the serviced apartments, which seem to be rented out to permanents now? We stayed in the older units which have 3 units put together to make them 2 bedroom and kitchenette. This motel is very old and needs a lot of work, but the new owners are trying. The staff are very friendly and... More

Booked over the phone on behalf of my husband who was travelling through the area for the first time. Staff were super helpful and the accommodation was top-rate. And the on-site dining at the pizza bar was excellent!

We were a group of 24 who stayed at this motel for 4 nights. The staff were the most helpful, caring and fun we have met in this industry for many years. They really knew how to make us feel welcome, accommodated with a smile any requests that we made. The food for dinner and breakfast was really excellent -... More

The first thing to point out is that I wouldn't stay here if you didn't have a car as it is about 5-7kms out of town. However, overall we were very happy with our stay. The reception staff were lovely and let us check in early at about 8am so we could get to the hospital to see a dying... More

We stayed for 4 nights and couldn't fault anything. All the staff were very friendly, and couldn't have been more helpful. The room was very clean and we had a great time in the pool. Would definitely stay again if travelling that way. Had a lovely pizza at the Providore next to the motel. Very tasty as well as being... More

I have mixed feelings when writing this review. Yes, the owners were friendly, rate was good, beds were clean and super comfortable and the size of the 2 bedroom apartment was excellent. I can forgive the cracked and missing tiles, the curtain rails coming down & the dated decor as the motel is old and in need of work. However,... More

I stayed at this motel for a business trip. The staff were friendly and the location seemed convenient but with trucks driving all night I didn't get the one thing I needed after a long drive..Sleep. I like to use the WiFi but it didn't work and the room just didn't feel clean to me, it smelt a bit mouldy... More

I stayed here with my husband and in-laws for three nights. The accommodation we booked was a 2 bedroomed family suite. I think the name is rather a stretch for a standard motel room plus a tiny room with two single beds. The sitting area was tiny and the furniture dated. There were no extra pillows, just one per person... More

Pulled in at around 1:30am after a red eye into Melbourne, saw the 24hr sign along the hwy and enquired.. Phone service out of hours answers immediately and reception was open within minutes, greeted by a very bright and smiley lady (sorry I didn't catch your name) nothing was a problem and we were in our room and sorted in...

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
