We stayed here for one night at the end of a road trip. The motel is basic, but serves its purpose. The wifi was acting up a bit, but once the owner reset it a few times, it was working okay.

The Alfred Motor in is not grand, however it is comfortable and clean. We keep returning because it suits our needs which is to visit friends and family, so most of the time we are away. However we always get a warm welcome from the owners, Tracey & Peter.

Good budget accommodation for short stay. People who run the property are very helpful and friendly. Cooked breakfast was good value and tasted great. Room was clean, though some of the beds in our family unit were more comfortable than others.

Stayed here with a group for a competition. We has previously been to a 4.5 star resort so we were not expecting too much but this place was extremely clean, beds were comfortable, bathroom very clean. Great place to stay for a stop over. Oh and very friendly.

Stayed two night and this place is very average, rooms are very, very old with poor facilities in them, no cutlery, no vanity in bathroom, towels missing, shampoo missing, the yard around hotel is terrible, long grass and never looked after, just not a pleasant place to stay, find an alternative !!!!

We visit Ballarat at least twice a year and we find the Alfred meets our needs by providing a comfortable, clean room at a reasonable price. An electric kettle, cups and toaster are provided which is appreciated.

This is a very clean & tidy motel, very spacious room however it had a very small shower recess, plenty of hot water though. Had lounge to sit on, bonus.! Passing through Ballarat so only stayed 1 night. Happy enough over all
