The Ararat Motor Inn has to be one of the nicest motor inns I've stayed in. The room was either recently refurbished or new so had a really nice feel to it. We booked a standard room which came with a TV, bar fridge, microwave and tea & coffee making facilities. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom big, clean and... More

We stayed here so my wife could go on the J ward Tour and the Asylum Tour. Upon checking in at the motel, we were very impressed that the owner who had only lived in the town for 5 months was very knowledgeable on the town, it's district and its tourist attractions. Very helpful indeed. The room we stayed in... More

We only stayed one night on our way to Melbourne but very happy we did. The room was very clean, reasonable size and a comfortable queen size bed. They also offered a microwave, kettle, and toaster which was great for a quick breakfast. The ensuite bathroom had a good size shower, plenty of hot water and fluffy towels. The whole... More

Stayed just one night as we had booked in to do the Ghost Tour at Aradale. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and shown our rooms - absolutely nothing to fault - the rooms were big enough for two people and faultlessly clean. The owners Marla and Harry know the area and suggested places for lunches and dinner - both... More

Stayed here last weekend and it was so spotlessly clean, couldn't fault it all. The new owners Marla and Harry are such lovely people to deal with, nothing is to much trouble for them. Will definitely be staying again in the future
