          Motel from Hell”

          The accommodation was marginally better then sleeping under the bridge. The fellow in reception who is the owner was anything but friendly and welcoming and had not been issued with a personality. The TV did not work and there was no soap in the room. I used the dishwashing liquid I found in the cupboard under the sink. The place was very dated and to make matters worse there were a heap of well known bikies staying there on very noisy Harley Davidsons. Breakfast was ordinary with runny eggs. There is no way I would recommend this motel to anyone other than Ivan Milat's family.

          Smelly room, hair in shower, empty beer can and food under beds”

          Upon arrival, room smelt of cigarettes. Checked bathroom, hair in the shower base. Decided to get some room deodorizer and cleaner and clean the room. An hour later decided to get dinner and look under the bed for our kid’s socks to find empty beer can and food. This was too much. Asked for refund, they said they could offer another room or refund if Agoda permitted. Agoda said they needed to talk to establishment who then said we had to pay for the room because they couldn’t resell it at 6 pm and we had stayed there for 3 hours. Woman stated that they’re very busy cleaning 17 rooms and things get missed. Food, empty beer can, hair in shower and stinky room is not missed things, it’s the whole room uncleaned . We understand it’s a budget motel but a certain level of hygiene is expected. Save your money and go somewhere else.

          Rarely do you see a motel that lives up to every one of it's claims from budget wise to location. We were very happy with our choice and would have no hesitation recommending this motel to others. Couldn't expect more for the money. Clean and comfortable and a good location almost next door to a fabulous restaurant - Lazy Moes where you can get a good feed morning noon or night

          Not Impressed”

          Chose the Alfred as it was close to the Golf Club where we were attending a function. Didn't realise the Bell Tower was next door and wish we'd stayed there. No milk the second day so asked for some which I was given but when I checked the use by date is was 2 weeks earlier. Also they advertised free Wi-Fi but it would not work in the room and the man at reception was no help. Probably will never stay in Ballarat again but if so, it wont be at the Alfred.

          Location is OK if you have a car. Town is not big, so it's easy to get around. But, there are other options at similar price that are in better condition. The hotel is tired and old and in need of renovation. The swimming pool is tiny.

          We were on our way back to Melbourne but a little tired of driving, so the most important thing for us was a meal and a good nights sleep. On meeting the very friendly owner, we found the MOST comfortable bed and an easy walk to the restaurant/s nearby. (Can recommend "The Forge" ten out of ten). Great value/budget motel.

          Thank you to all the staff at The Alfred Motor Inn Ballarat. We enjoyed our stay and the rooms were exceptionally clean an older motel. The price was perfect for what we wanted to spend for one night. We walked across the road to the Golf Club for a pleasant meal. Bed was super comfortable and the sheets were crisp and clean. The shower had great pressure and the towels were exceptionalky soft and fluffy. Wifi was available but dropped out on occasion, not too fussed about this really. Staff were prompt on check-in and check-out which we appreciated as we'd travelled 5hrs to get there and had the same trip ahead of us on check-out.

          Smelly room, hair in shower, empty beer can and food under beds”

          Upon arrival, room smelt of cigarettes. Checked bathroom, hair in the shower base. Decided to get some room deodorizer and cleaner and clean the room. An hour later decided to get dinner and look under the bed for our kid’s socks to find empty beer can and food. This was too much. Asked for refund, they said they could offer another room or refund if Agoda permitted. Agoda said they needed to talk to establishment who then said we had to pay for the room because they couldn’t resell it at 6 pm and we had stayed there for 3 hours. Woman stated that they’re very busy cleaning 17 rooms and things get missed. Food, empty beer can, hair in shower and stinky room is not missed things, it’s the whole room uncleaned . We understand it’s a budget motel but a certain level of hygiene is expected. Save your money and go somewhere else.

          The room was tired and cleaning of the bathroom area could have been better Good location to turn up late and leave early, close to ring road to get back onto the highway. Not so for a long stay, too far from town. Overall a bit disspointing

          The basics. Cheap motel. Older amenities, 50s to 60s style old motor inn. Beds comfy and clean. Bathroom clean. Free wifi. 5 mins into town. Good option on a budget. Friendly owner greeted us and offered assistance if needed.

          Rarely do you see a motel that lives up to every one of it's claims from budget wise to location. We were very happy with our choice and would have no hesitation recommending this motel to others. Couldn't expect more for the money. Clean and comfortable and a good location almost next door to a fabulous restaurant - Lazy Moes where you can get a good feed morning noon or night

          Not Impressed”

          Chose the Alfred as it was close to the Golf Club where we were attending a function. Didn't realise the Bell Tower was next door and wish we'd stayed there. No milk the second day so asked for some which I was given but when I checked the use by date is was 2 weeks earlier. Also they advertised free Wi-Fi but it would not work in the room and the man at reception was no help. Probably will never stay in Ballarat again but if so, it wont be at the Alfred.

          Location is OK if you have a car. Town is not big, so it's easy to get around. But, there are other options at similar price that are in better condition. The hotel is tired and old and in need of renovation. The swimming pool is tiny.

          We were on our way back to Melbourne but a little tired of driving, so the most important thing for us was a meal and a good nights sleep. On meeting the very friendly owner, we found the MOST comfortable bed and an easy walk to the restaurant/s nearby. (Can recommend "The Forge" ten out of ten). Great value/budget motel.

          Have stayed here same time each year(Early July) Managers are very nice and courteous but the room could do with a brush up. Beds are very comfortable and electric blanket was welcome as it was freezing. Location is great. Would have appreciated a second towel on my second day but all in all not bad. My rating 6.5

          Location, price and cleanliness

          Thank you to all the staff at The Alfred Motor Inn Ballarat. We enjoyed our stay and the rooms were exceptionally clean an older motel. The price was perfect for what we wanted to spend for one night. We walked across the road to the Golf Club for a pleasant meal. Bed was super comfortable and the sheets were crisp and clean. The shower had great pressure and the towels were exceptionalky soft and fluffy. Wifi was available but dropped out on occasion, not too fussed about this really. Staff were prompt on check-in and check-out which we appreciated as we'd travelled 5hrs to get there and had the same trip ahead of us on check-out.
