Stayed here for one night during the Cabaret Festival. Owners at reception were very friendly, and happy to give some local advice. Bed was so comfortable, and the electric blanket helped keep things cosy. Wifi was a little patchy, but that didn't blight my stay. It is a little bit out of the way, but for a good nights sleep...

Not sure where the previous reviewer stayed but I don't think it was here. The couple at reception were very friendly and welcoming. I would have given 5 stars except for the antiquated aircondioner and bathroom fan. Both were very noisy and inefficient also better lighting over the mirror in the bathroom would have been handy. Otherwise I can highly... More

The People at this Motor Inn were very welcoming. As we arrived late in the afternoon they had even turned the heating on to make our arrival more pleasant The beds were extremely comfortable and we were able to enjoy the bed night of the 6 we were away

Excellent!! Perfect for our overnighter when visiting Ballarat. Dealt straight with owners, who were lovely and cooked a great, well priced breakfast. Room was spacious, clean, well equipped and a comfy bed with electric blankets. Happy we couldn't hear any noise in our room. Management suggested a couple places to eat and got that right too. Will definitely go back.... More

The beds were very comfortable, the room was heated quite well, (extremely cold week). Quite a small room but quite comfortable. $99 for a queen bed room, NO INTERNET. Small microwave, jug and fridge. Only thing that was a little off putting was the man at reception, it costs nothing to smile!

This really is a value for money motel with all we needed. Very clean, very comfortable & the bed was devine. Staff/owners are very obliging. Will certainly be staying here in future when in Ballarat. Found it by chance when the motel we used to stay had no one on site when we arrived. Only 5 - 10 mins to... More

The staff are extremely helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They were willing to give their time to explain where we could go for a meal and things we could see while we were in ballarat. The room was clean and well maintained it may not be the high class motel but it has all you need.
