Excellent value for money. It was a fresh, clean and fairly modern room. All we could want. Warmth, comfortable bed, little lounge to watch TV and quiet as well. The owner/manager was a lovely woman and made us feel very welcome. Not too far from the main city centre. No negatives for this motel

The host was very helpful. The king bed pillow top was very nice. Two nights with shops next door was good. Forge pizza was fabulous. Only complaint air con noisy not quite up to the job. Bathroom needs updating. Enjoyed our stay.

Mid winter, looking for an inexpennse overnight in Ballarat, a quick web search led us to this motel. While we had no reservation, it was obvious from the parking lot (and most other properties we have been passing by) that the motel was far from fully occupied. The reception area is far from tidy, disheveled and dated was our impression.... More

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.
