Reviewed March 4, 2014

Stayed one night in February travelling from Adelaide. Owners / Managers were lovely and very friendly almost felt like family! Happy to do anything for you. Right in centre of Ballarat, easy walk to shops and the restaurant they recommended. One of the cleanest, best appointed in all Motels we have stayed. Fantastic king size bed and various luxury pillows to choose from. Will definitely stay here again.

Great little motel. Nice comfortable king bed, foxtel in room and plenty of space and parking. Close to restaurants and cafés. Nice to be woken up by church bells on a Sunday morning. Only fault was that we couldn't get in room wifi working. :)

Not much expect at the beginning when I book this place, mainly due to the price. We just want a place to stop for a rest before continuous driving back from adelaid to Melbourne / Tasmania.
first impression humffray street got 2 side, this situated on the south side ( hints when you rely on GPS). The hosts is nice and know the area. we want to find a particular type of restaurant, she even call to make sure they are open ( long weekend alot of place shut), she appears friendly and approachable.
The room, the picture did not reflect the quality of the room, based on the colour and set up, I assume the room will have that old motel smell. But the room is clean, no funny smell. 40 inch tv, good quality heat-pump. one of the big plus pillow is comfortable ( i know it is personal). I think it reflect the effort the owner put it to this place. I believe they do the cleaning themselves which keep the standard up.
carpark, got an allocated carpark, so which is good idea.
position of the hotel is good, it close to everything you need in walking distance.

I hope they will keep up with the good work, also keep the price in reasonable after all the good review.

Stayed on a Sunday night a few weeks ago - Owners / Managers were lovely and very friendly. Happy to do anything for you. Right in centre of Ballarat, could walk to shops and also to Club. Would have to have had one of the cleanest bathrooms in all Motels we have stayed and rooms were clean and comfy. Will certainly stay here again.

We stayed in a family room with 4 adults. Bathroom was separate from basins with was amazing for us. We had a high tea at 2:30, but a simple phone call during the week and we were able to check in early without any hassles. Staff were lovely and super friendly. Car parking was a slight issue as we had 2 cars with us, but it all worked ok and the staff were so nice, we got over it :)

We were given a room which was not yet totally refurbished, but it had a great king sized bed, big tv, very good quality bed lined, fluffy towels, new blinds, and new shower head so we were pleased with it. We had a microwave and kitchen sink but bring your own cutlery, microwave bowl and tea towel if needed. The shower was very dated and is due to be refurbished soon. The motel is so close to town and supermarkets, great position.

We booked in for 3 nights and when we saw the room thought it was good. Good size and the bedding was fresh. The lamps were a bit dusty. I made my own bed the next day but the day after we asked for our room to be done by cleaners. My husband had bled on the sheet and pillowcase from a sore. I expected the sheets etc to be changed, YOU could see the blood stains. They weren't changed. The toilet wasn't even cleaned or the cupboards near the bed wiped over. The only thing I could see done was the bed made up plus fridge restocked. My husband went and saw the owner only to be told they change the sheets every 3rd day if your staying. For $150:00 per night we expected more then that. Plus we had a lot of trouble with the wifi.
