Check in starts with a warm and friendly welcome, after a long day it was wonderful to find a clean, spacious room with a microwave. Had a wide variety of basic shops located next to hotel, and low road noise. Bed was comfortable and firm, a it was a pleasant surprise to walk into a warm room. Thanks for an... More

We booked at the ambassador for one night. I rang them to say we would be checking in at 10:30pm as their check in time was only until 9:30pm. The staff said because we were late we could not check in or get a refund. He would not even suggest an alternative hotel to stay in. Not impressed about paying... More

When ever I stay in Ballarat I cannot go past the Ambassador Motor Inn. The rooms are very clean and recently have been renovated. The bathrooms are large and well presented. Located in a quiet area of the town but close to many attractions. A small block of shops next door with take away food.

As this is a Golden Chain motel we booked ahead for 2 nights stay in Ballarat. First impression is that of an oldish style motel a bit out of town. However, once getting established in the room and got talking to the owner, Garry, one couldn't help but like the place for a short stay. The room was, yes, a... More

Conveniently located with only a short ride to the lake and botanic gardens. Also near the Skipton rail trail. Very conveniently one of the top restaurants is about 100mtrs away. The customer device was also quite good.

My husband and I recently spent two nights here while touring around Victoria. We had a retro standard unit, which was in ex condition. It looked as tho it had recently been redecorated. Plenty of room and good bed. It was great to have a reasonably quiet heater in the room as the nights were very cool. Nice tidy bathroom... More

My Dad and I stayed one night, leaving early next morning to continue our travels. The Man on reception was very friendly and helpful. He upgraded us to a bigger suite (2 bedroom, which was one separate bedroom, the other bed in the living area, which was fine for us). The rooms are pretty old and dated, but everything was... More

First time staying in a motel and was surprised by how nice n clean it was. Good location buses into city not far and in a thriving area with shops and laundry. Beds was good and basic amenities. Great for couples or first time travellers tom Oz!

I would advise people to disregard some of the reviews posted as we found them very very inaccurate. OK its not 5 star but they dont allude to be so. What we got was a clean & comfortable room with a good bed, good television, nice bathroom & most importantly - wonderful service. Nothing was too much trouble for the... More
