When staying in Ballarat, this is my first choice for a place to stay. It is a little outdated and basic, however for $80ish a night you can't complain. It has nice comfy beds, nice hot showers and air con/heaters. The gentleman running it is happy to help, and provides the necessities for a pleasant stay. Everything is clean, the... More

Recently stayed at the Eureka Lodge rooms were dated... Clean but towels were worn with dangling threads. Needs an overhaul. Otherwise it was clean. TV was too small for all to see. Heating was ok. Great location.

What a great motel, it had everything that you need for a stay... including electric blankets for us that aren't used to the freezing cold nights! Everything was clean and the water was hot.. what more can you ask for?

This is an older style motel and is rather dated nowdays. However, the price was excellent as compared to others and it still ticked all the important boxes. The room was a good size, clean and had everything that was needed. The bed was comfortable and the shower huge with plenty of hot water. It is in a quiet area... More

I stayed here for one night just for a stopover with my daughters and couldn't have been happier. The rooms are clean and are spacious enough as is the bathroom. There is plenty of space to put bags and still move around. It has all the basics that you need (tv, fridge, kettle, toaster, etc) and comes with a continental... More

Our family stayed at this motel last week in room 9. The room was hot and the air conditioner didn't work properly, so we all had a terrible sleep!. On the positive side beds were comfortable and the motel is located in a quiet area.

You can tell by the sincerity and warmth of a person that they care about their guests and nothing is truer than this for the host Brian Hand at the Eureka Lodge. Our room was clean and comfortable even if a little dated, but we witnessed the arrival of the painting crew on our departure so I guess future guests... More

Stayed 3 nights while visiting family over Xmas and was happy with room and services. Only let down was no wifi which is a must in today's market. Room was very clean, comfortable and offered a light breakfast of cereal and toast / coffee/ tea with your room. Good value and reasonable location.
