I was not intending on staying at Ararat but after a long drive (900klm) I decided that I had had enough. I was towing and the car park area at this motel was not ideal, but the lady at reception placed me in a room and said that she would keep the 2 units either side vacant so that I... More

We have always found Golden Chain Motels to be of a really great standard both inside and out but this one was very dated inside the exective room. Fixing the drapes that were hanging off their hooks would make the room look so much nicer. The security chain on the door was broken and there wasn't a phone in the... More

The Ararat Colonial is a homely 1970s family run Motel. The service is excellent and the rooms are homely, comfy and clean. The location is great, off the main road yet close enough to walk to the main street in Ararat for dinner. Good value.

We didn't get a good night's sleep because we could feel the springs on the queen sized bed. The bathrooms also need renovating. Otherwise it was clean and the manager was very attentive and helpful with providing us with a movie to watch before bed. Probably would give a better rating if there was a foam placed on the queen... More

Arrived after a long trip after a very long day. Jason, the owner, was fantastic; welcoming and really helpful. Rooms were clean and the internet was exactly wht me and my mates really needed. Will definitely go there again if I'm on another trip in the area.

Room was clean and tidy and internet was fast. Building was well maintained. Was close to main shops for easy shopping in the morning. Will stay again next time I go through the area. Would recommend to anyone.

Stopped here after long days travel - great spot - clean tidy and refurbished. Close to town centre (walking distance). Good service and very helpful. Went to RSL Club for dinner - excellent. Regular traveller on Adelaide to melbourne Road and will be staying again when required.

This hotel is central to main shopping strip and a few of the local attractions, like J-ward. Friendly service and clean. Bathrooms just need an upgrade! But overall, reccommend staying if visiting Ararat.

I had no problems with the motel and was glad to get a room when most of the other motels were booked out. Staff were helpful and the breakfast was good value. I left a good book behind and they posted it to me.
