After seeing the entrance and grounds, my wife & I looked at each other and said "oh dear". However, don't judge a book by it;s cover! The managers were nice and the rooms are clearly being upgraded at the moment. Rooms are a generous size and although aged, are nicely appointed. New carpet and TV and a comfy bed. Only... More

Horsham can be very expensive for accommodation. Darlot is a good budget option with big clean rooms, nice firm beds and clean bedding. Owners are currently upgrading the rooms with new carpet, paint and room furniture to add even more value. For summer there is also a pool which is a bit of bonus for a budget option. There can...

I found the Darlot to be a basic but clean and tidy motel. From the time of booking the staff were polite and friendly. They were more than happy for me to have my two dogs stay (inside in their crates). The rate is good and the location is not noisy. The chinese across the road was also very nice.... More

We stayed here early in May 2014 on a trip from Melbourne to Adelaide in a Twin room (Rm 14). The owners were slowly renovating the motel. Our room did not meet our expectations. The room was desperately in need of refurbishment. It was of a reasonable size and the beds were comfortable and there was little traffic noise from... More

Arrived in Horsham late one night and we were really just looking for a cheap motel - somewhere to rest our heads! The room was a little dated but very clean. Service was friendly. Only complaint... The water pressure in the shower is terrible. The bed was very comfortable though - even had an electric blanket!

This motel has the appearance of being a bit of a dive but the room was clean and the staff was very friendly. The bed could use an upgrade and the pool area (which we didn't use) looked like it could use a make over as well. It was an okay stop over en route to Melbourne.

We stayed here again for somewhere to put the head down and relax while traveling from SA to Vic, we stayed here previously with the kids around 12mths ago and it was very suitable for our needs and very well priced. This second time it was just two adults and we were given room 1. Staff were very polite again... More

First impression is the building and rooms are dated, however one you meet the lovely staff and chat with them, followed by how good the size of the room was and that everything worked, it was very good for the price and location overall. There were lots of other guests and you did not get bothered by them with noise... More

Due to working away from home I stayed here for 6 weeks recently. The room was very clean and had everything I needed including a microwave. The room rate for a lengthy time like that was extremely reasonable. It was a bonus to be able to use the undercover BBQ area on many occasions. The hospitality of Ross and Tracy... More

We wanted to stop for 1 night with our kids on our way to Melbourne, and this was the most reasonably priced and only just off the freeway. We got in at 9:30pm and left exactly 12 hours later to continue our trip. Service was extremely friendly and the room was super clean, neat and tidy. Everything we needed for... More
