I booked a queen room at very short notice. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Bathroom was tight,but immaculate. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely stay again on my way through.

We stayed in a Standard room which was small but OK for a quick overnight stop. The owners/staff were helpful & friendly. The room was clean & the bed comfortable. Whilst on the main road, double glazed windows kept the room quiet. However trains rattled past all night which wasn't a concern for us.

It is a bit out of town (about 5 minutes from the centre of town) and on the main road, but with the double glazing it was a great choice. The rooms were extremely clean (my only... More

This is a motel worth your stay and worth every second of your sleep. You would sleep like a baby. The beds are comfortable with electric blankets, air con, hot drink making facilities. The owners Chris and Ian are very welcoming couple and make you feel at home. The family rooms are very spacious and plenty of room for a... More

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

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.
