Located in a handy spot for walking into the Main Street. Park the car and walk everywhere. Nice and clean, pool was refreshing on a hot day. The owner could not do enough for us and was a wealth of information on the town. Handy for the RSL for a good meal.

Totally agree with previous reviewers re the comfort and amenity of the accommodation after a recent two-night stay. It is very well situated within walking distance of the RSL and the lovely public gardens, as well as being adjacent to the main street. The owner was hospitable and very informative about the town and we appreciated her recommendation of the... More

Found this place quite by accident and found it to be very comfortable, staff friendly and very helpful, especially Sheryl who runs it. The room we had (disabled room) was dated but still the beds were comfortable, the layout quite big and suited us very well for our needs. The breakfast served up the next morning was totally delightful and... More

This is a good Golden Chain Motel. Room was comfortable and away from the main traffic route so comfortable and quiet. Seniors card provides a discounted rate and there is free wifi (tad unreliable but okay). Receptionist really bubbly and helpful with attractions and advice on eateries etc. Enjoyed our stop-over and would use this Motel again. Main shopping centre... More

We stayed here as it was the only motel in town offering a big enough space for a family group, which was achieved through an interconnecting room. The rooms were spacious and satisfied our needs by supplying the basic motel amenities. The rooms are dated especially the bathroom and the main door was warped and difficult to close. I question...

On our trip back from Adelaide to Melbourne, we decided to break it up with a stopover. Ararat became the obvious choice, simply due to the timings of the trip. We found two motels in town and picked what we presumed to be the best after a quick drive past both. We still think that we made the right choice.... More

Travelling from Adelaide to Melbourne is even easier with a break part way across. We decided on Ararat as the perfect place - feeling refreshed enough next morning to hit the "big smoke" is way better than after a 10-hour journey. For us, it was a timely stop.

Had a fantastic time at this motel. Had a family room with my daughters for a Mother's Day weekend getaway. The motel room was fine, the beds were comfy and the service was excellent. Jason who owns the motel offered us a late checkout (basically could have stayed all day) and presented me with a box of chocolates for Mothers... More

We, (15 older bus passengers) were looking for somewhere comfortable, clean & affordable after a long days travel. The Ararat Colonial Lodge Motel filled the bill with 7 pre-booked rooms. Together with a continental b'fast we were well rested for our next day's travel.

My friends and I are university students who went on a road trip to the grampians. On the way may we enountered some car problems and ended up getting stranded in Ararat at 8pm with our vehicle being towed to a local RACV depot. So we were stuck in Ararat for the night without much money. We went to the... More
