Very clean, quiet, all the essentials. Checked in but didn’t come to the room until late. Very impressed with the results. Bed was comfortable and warm. TV easy to use. Heater took a little while to work out.

We stayed for two nights in a two bedroom apartment, Room sizes were good and had everything we could of needed. A larger couch would of been handy as it has ability to hold 4/5 adults but only a 2 seater couch, only other seating was at table. The large Foxtel channels selection was nice not many have that option. Was a quiet stay despite being on a busy road. Bed was comfortable, shower good. Pool looked nice but not hot enough to use unfortunately :( Would of given it a 4 star rating but it just needs a little more attention with cleaning and maintenance some things were over looked - dirty skirting and walls, cracked powerpoints but If they rectify those few things and keep on top then I would definitely stay again and I’m sure others would notice the improvement too.

We booked a Queen room for a couple. The room was spacious and clean. The car was able to be parked right next to the door for easily unloading our luggage. The bathroom had plenty of space, a glass screen shower door with roomy shower. The motel is within a 1 minute drive to Coles, Service Stations, Bakeries, Corner Shops, Chemists. About 5 minute drive straight down one road to Ballarat Town Centre. We arrived after booking one night and immediately booked a second night. The owner was more than happy to accomodate that last minute decision and we got the same room for both nights. If you're looking for affordable, hospitable, clean, comfortable accomodation then this is the place for you.
