Stayed for 2 nights in July 2014 in a 3.5 star room. Extremely clean and well stocked and Janice and Ian were the most wonderful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they were so welcoming and friendly with lots of advice regarding local attractions and restaurants. Will definitely return.

Spent 3 nights in an Executive Room. Well equipped, very comfortable, and very clean. Electric blanket was an added bonus. The checking and check out process was very smooth and friendly advice was given in regards to local attractions and the best places to eat during my stay. The breakfast was really nice with good servings. Is definitely well worth... More

I stayed in an Executive Room en route from Adelaide to Melbourne. The cleanliness of the room could not be faulted but I guess for the price of the room ($150) in a location like Ararat I was expecting something a little bigger. Further, one of the features listed was wireless internet. I left my phone searching for over a... More

A last minute trip to Ararat. Booked via wotif into this motor in. We stayed in one of the executive rooms, it was very well presented, clean and had under cover parking which was fantastic on a 40 degree day. The checkin/out process was very easy and staff extremely friendly. Definitely worth staying here. Great value for money.

I stayed as part of a work group so we got one of the 3 bedroom holiday houses they own just a few doors up from the actual motel. Big spacious and very clean house with kitchen and appliances and good bedding. A great option for goups or families needing a couple of rooms with all the extra available lounge... More

I stayed for one night, cold & wet outside, but very comfortable in the motel room. Friendly owners, comfortable bed, well appointed room. Will definitely be my first choice to stay when I am next in the area.

The Ararat Motor Inn has everything you hope to find in a small country town motel, Friendly owners, a clean room and a modern revamp that doesn't make you feel like your caught in a weird timewarp. We arrived late on a cold Saturday afternoon but Pat had already turned our heaters on so our cosy little room was just... More

We stayed here for one night in a $135 room it was spacious, very clean, close to the shops. Service was great. Bed was comfy and shower was really good water pressure unlike some places we have stayed in. Very impressed.

One of the best Australian motels I've stayed in. Clean, well presented, quiet. Good comfortable bed, nice bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. It's out of town, so not particularly close (ie, walking distance) to shops & restaurants, but that didn't concern us. It's five minutes drive to old Aradale hospital, so close if you're heading to Ararat for one... More
