It's now been my 2nd stay at the Chalambar Motel. I stayed here in 2013 & 2014. The hotel itself is in an easy location to find on the Adelaide side of Ararat. The rooms are compact yet clean and pleasant.

My family and I came to stay here during a weekend of history hunting at the local asylums. We stayed in the family cabin and it was beautiful and clean. It slept the 4 of us comfortably! The staff were wonderful too, offering us a late check out because they knew we would be having a late night! It really... More

It's now been my 5th stay in the past five years at Chalambar Motel. The motel rooms are very clean and pleasant. The hospitality has been impeccable. Thank you and see you next year. I highly recommend this motel to others.

Stayed overnight en route to Melbourne. Very clean and staff were very accommodating. As we suspected (being right next to the highway) it was quite noisy from passing trucks throughout the night. Would stay again though.

The Chalambar is a great stopover for a night driving along the highway. I got in late which was fine and they were more than happy to accomodate a late checkout the next day. The room is quite a bit smaller than many I have stayed in, but if you're just looking to sleep, it isn't a great issue.

I stayed here in April 2014, just for one night and it was exactly what I needed! I arrived late (about midnight), and the key was out for me, and room was ready, and my room receipt was printed etc. Room was small, but cheerful, warm and clean. VERY good value for the price. Would definitely stay again, and would... More

Stayed last weekend still the most comfortable, clean, in good repair and modern motel in Ararat. Already looking forward to my next trip up. The managers are most helpful and will help to sort out any problems that you may have. They can also tell you the best places to eat in town as well as book tables if need.... More

Just passing through and so glad it was only a one night stay. First of all when I called to make a reservation the woman answered the phone with "hello" so I had to verify it was the hotel. This woman was far from delightful, to the point where I said "I'm sorry did I wake you?" I should've known... More

I am disappointed you called the Chalambar Motel a run down dinghy pokey motel .Fair enough the rooms are small but This is a country Motel not the Hilton. The bathrooms are not damp and all the doors are not falling off, may be 1 might be loose. Sorry you had a bad stay here. Everyone loves coming to our... More
