“Simple, clean, great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Great place, exactly what we wanted. Simple, clean, really friendly staff. Stayed with my husband and sister in law and perfect amount of space for one night. We were going out for the night so didn’t spend too much time in the room. Beds super comfy and curtains kept the morning sun out. Would certainly stay here again for a 1 or 2 night stay.

The Barkly was our choice as we had arrived fairly late and had not booked , cosy , comfortable beds , restaurant good and clean. But interior is looking very tired in need of a face lift.

We stayed two nights and considered staying a third. We arrived at the Best Western in person and managed to get the last room. This is because we had booked into another motel over the internet and found it to be very different from its description.
We found the complex delightful. The rooms were thoughtfully laid out, clean and pleasant. The shower was over the bath but there was a hand rail and the staff provided a step. My mother has some mobility issues but with the step, rail and the bottom of the bath being flat she felt secure.
The beds were very comfortable and we had the best two nights sleep. We were aware of the traffic noises ,as we got the last room no 21, which is on the corner of the intersection,, but even as a light sleeper I slept really well. The motel would benefit from double glazing the windows , but the owner is not convinced. Having said that we had a great nights sleep.
Barkly's restaurant was atmospheric and the food was of an exception quality, both in flavor and presentation. My mother's dietary restrictions and concerns were addressed kindly and with consideration. A wonderful stay!

We stayed for two nights and I cannot think the right words to describe their service.... It was awesome... We asked for things to do in Ballarat and staff at the front office were so helpful, they gave us some maps of the city and due to the location, everything was walking distance... Rooms were clean and meals are at reasonable price, definitely it is a good value for money....
Recommendable for a perfect getaway in Ballarat!!!!

I really liked this place. Great people, very clean rooms, good value and good location. Really appreciate the restaurant after a long day on the road. Food and service is the best in Ballarat in my opinion....Not often you come accross a motel this good.

Had we known this was on the corner of a 4-way intersection, with trucks rumbling past all night we would NEVER have booked and paid in advance and most certainly would not have stayed here. It was sooooooo noisy. After a long road trip all we wanted was a good night's sleep and we certainly didn't get this. To add to the noise issue the air conditioner sounded like a jet plane landing in the distance. Whilst the room appeared clean under the dim night lighting we later discovered on getting up in the morning that the headboard of the bed was sticky with an unknown substance - yuk!!!
