Arrived in the afternoon on a Sunday. Check in was fast and the man at reception was very welcoming and friendly. The room we stayed in was very clean and well presented, and the shower had great pressure. It was good as any four star hotel.

Love this motel. So convenient to everything in Ballarat. You can walk to shops and restaurants and it is only a short drive to attractions like sovereign hill. The owners are friendly and helpful and nothing is to hard for them. Rooms are clean and spacious and the balcony is a great bonus.

Host was really nice n friendly. Provided us with dinner suggestions and helped me get a room on the ground floor for my parents. Rooms are clean n nice. Best thing is there's a heater in the bathroom so it's not too chilly when taking a shower. Thumbs up!

Had our 6 year old grand daughter for a week of the school holidays and booked into Ballarat Central City Motor Inn as it not only has a family room (accommodates 5) but also as the name depicts, very central to most of Central Ballarat. The room had all that was needed for our 3 night say, kitchenette, 2 tv's... More

Easy to park and really friendly welcome. Location makes it easy to go out for dinner and to breakfast or supermarket. Room was clean with everything you could need. Wifi was excellent reception - I was next to reception though so this may have helped. Only disappointmnet was the shower which had little power and jumped between hot and cold.... More

This motel is very close to shops and restaurants which was great for us as we walked everywhere. Even though it is right on a main road, there wasn't much noise. Staff were friendly and helpful. Comfy bedding. Large bathroom. Able to park in the motel and not on road. Room had toaster and microwave. TV was a reasonable size.... More

Room was quiet, Comfortable and Clean, and that's all you need. It was within walking distance to clubs and restaurants , so it was located well. The staff were friendly and welcoming. only issue was that the bathroom lights were on a timer, which was a bit annoying, but all in all very good.
