Chalambar Motel

Reviewed November 29, 2011

Stayed one night before visiting the Grampians.
The rooms were refurbished, clean and comfortable but small and the owners were very helpful and friendly. On the northern outskirts of Ararat , set back from the Western Highway.

Lovely little town friendly people and this extends to this motel. The owner was polite, pleasant and very helpful. They are just new owners and seem to be doing a good job of running small town motels.
It is a little out of the main centre of town but if you have a car it is a great choice of place to stay. The one thing is don’t expect too much out of it as the rooms are small but well set out and they have everything you would expect in a motel. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Not big rooms but perfect as a motel room

We stayed in a family which was spacious, very clean and great value for money. The motel has obviously been renovated which is very tasteful - great beds and even though there was no bath - the seat in the shower was very handy as the shower came off and the kids could sit down so they didn't slip. The other bonus was the excellent curtains and blinds. The blinds were blockout so we weren't up with the birds. Great TV and table and chairs in the room. Excellent service, they were so friendly from when I booked to when we left. We were driving from Adelaide to Melbourne and it was a great stop. We couldn't hear the train and we not disturbed by the trucks

We stayed here with the family recently. The staff/owners of the motel were great, friendly people who made us feel welcome. the rooms were tidy and clean. Only slight annoyance was the noise from the trucks but that is hardy the fault of the motel. Overall an excellent stay.

My Partner and I stayed at this hotel for a weekend stay, the room was clean and cosy but was still comfortable for a short stay, the service was great and the location was convenient. I would definetely consider staying here again when in the area.
