Spent one night in this lovely clean, friendly Motel. It was in a quiet location and the room had all modern self contained needs. It also had undercover parking allocated directly outside each room. The hosts were so very helpful with local information. Made it so easy to plan our short stay. Would highly recommend for all occasions.

We were met by a man filling in for the normal owners and he was more than helpful! Recommended places for us to eat and even had the heater on when we arrived! We stayed in the executive room and it was well worth the extra money. Thankyou for a wonderful and clean room!

On a wine trip to the area with 20 people. Excellent motel just out of the main town centre. Beautifully renovated rooms and bathrooms, new carpets, extremely comfortable bed, coffee maker, very quiet. Huge sheltered undercover parking area outside rooms. Harry and Marla excellent hosts, who recommended places to eat and visit.

We had an overnight stay here earlier this month. Found our room to have one of the cleanest bathrooms I have seen in a motel for a long time. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Comfy bed. Not too noisy. Would stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ararat Motor Inn for the second time! Great facilities and rooms, even better value for money and extremely friendly staff who were very accommodating and were happy to direct us to the best spots in town (also had a good chat and a laugh)! Will be coming back for a third time soon!... More
