The Ararat Colonial Lodge Motel. The Landlady here is very nice and helpful. She is the first impression and that helps. Parking is excellent in front of the room. The room is equipped with Toaster, Kettle, microwave, fridge. Very spacious and the same goes for bathroom. Excellent WIFI, comfortable bed. Rooms seems to be soundproof. Room 5. Breakfast must be...

Thank you for excellent service for a late arrival and the return of a forgotten item. This is a very comfortable motel with larger than average rooms in a quiet location away from the main truck route. The facilities were clean and the bed comfortable. For an overnight stop on a long journey, the Colonial Lodge is now our preferred...

Chose this place at the end of a long day of business from Tripadviser reviews. Yes, while the decor is a little dated, I found the manager Cheryl to be very friendly and accommodating, the rooms spacious enough, the heating worked, and the bed was comfortable. Tariff was only $110, which was good value in my opinion. And yes, the...

Very old room with original features. The electric blanket didn't work, and the plug was bent and wouldn't fit into socket which was disappointing as it was cold but too late to let them know. The vents were dirty as was the office floor. Needs money spent on it. Looks like nothing has been updated since it was built. Quite...

Called and spoke with Cheryl who was chatty and a pleasure to deal with, a pretty (typical 😐) cold day. Room was great, with desk space to do paperwork (Grrrr), power points to charge the IPone, IOad and Android tablet, lots of space and a table and chairs and a settee, although it borders on a side road traffic noise...

Great location but desperately in need of updating. Stayed in room 5 which was extremely disappointing for the price ($125 - one person) Thread bare carpet, heating unit above the door not working, heater beside the bed not working so it made for a very cold night. Television was the size of a postage stamp and poor water pressure in...

Very central motel to town and rsl. Rooms are quiet even though there is a bit of traffic. Woolworths is across the road and just up from McDonalds. Rooms are large and clean a bit dated but all we required. Cheryl is very helpful to needs. Pool clean although we didnt use it. Reasonable rates. Would stay again.
