Good rooms and very helpful staff. Only drawback if there is no food available although there is a fridge and basic amenities in the room. For meals you have to go into the main part of town and they do have a few hotels which have charge back facilities to your room.
Wifi, Foxtel and washing facilities available.

Room Tip: Most but not all rooms have carports

Booked this motel as it was close to the Motocross track, all good and clean/tidy. It had a carport in front of some units and this was great when it started to rain heavily as loading or unloading your car was dry.

Room Tip: Room with carport

The room was like a brand new and its very comfortable, especially a good desk with a good desk lamp. I was happy with it, good for my homework. Many hotels do not have desk! Only one thing that I was so disappointed that the TV does not have any subtitles for Deaf travellers. I tried to set it up on the remote but it said not available or preferred subtitles. Therefore, I could not use the TV on that night. Otherwise, I did enjoy stay overnight.

Thank you very much.

We found that this motel provided reasonable and clean accommodation, nothing fancy, but good if you want to see Ararat and want to stay the night. It is a bit on the pricey side, around $150 per night, and it does not include breakfast in the price, which is extra. Many hotels in Melbourne itself offer overnight accommodation plus breakfast for 2 for under $150. But you can get a 10% discount on your accommodation if you are also booked with the local ghost tour company. There is space to park your car in front of your motel room. There are irritating small lights in the room ceiling and around the room that glow brightly in the dark whilst you are trying to fall asleep.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. The light you are referring to would have been the tiny red light in the smoke detector. These are mandatory in smoke detectors.
