My daughter and I visit Ararat each year for the Eisteddfod. This is a very clean and quiet motel. The microwave and crockery etc is great for self catering breakfast and a late dinner after a long day of dancing. We will definitely continue to stay here on our annual visit.

This is a spotlessly clean, small family run motel which offers friendly service and a quiet location away from the main highway. All on ground level. Continental breakfast available, microwave in room. King room is fairly spacious while standard room is smaller but quite adequate for a night or two stay. Close enough to visit the Grampians and other local... More

Wow what a hidden gem. Paid for 1 night end up staying for 2 will definitely stay again. Friendly staff, rooms beautifully maintained, large rooms. microwave and toaster in each room, Foxtel and free Wi-Fi. Close to all shops, local restaurants and walking distance to rural train station. Highly recommended you stay.

The room was very well appointed and we loved it. Booked in for two nights and when we returned late in the day we found that the bed was not made up - the towels had been changed and kitchen re stocked. Quite disappointing.

This motel is well priced, exceptionally clean and has very friendly owners/managers. Our room was comfortable and warm with plenty of space, including a small kitchenette. It is also close to town and restaurants - an easy walk.

Great motel that has a very high standard for cleanliness, comfortable rooms with a quiet location in town. Warm and friendly staff that work very hard to make your stay pleasant. They have quite a few different levels of accommodation to cater for all budget minded people. The room that I had even had a coffee machine with pods, unbelievable.

This is a lovely place to stay. The place looks like it has been recently redecorated with attention to detail. It was exceptionally clean. The shower was nice and hot. The bathroom heating was modern and lovely. It was nice and quiet. The owners were very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

Very well presented property - looks to be newly renovated and clearly cared for by the owners that operate the motor inn. The room was tastefully decorated, clean and warm (being July it was literally freezing outside). Very helpful hosts (Marla & Harry) who not only recommended local attractions to visit but also pointed us in the right direction for... More

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.
