      Great value for money and the restaurant downstairs served amazing food. Our only negative would be that the walls were very thin and we could easily hear guests talking in the rooms next to us so if they were noisy it was difficult to sleep. Staff were friendly, great location and plenty of parking, we enjoyed our stay.

      Booked a queen room and requested an extra bed. On arrival the extremely rude receptionist said we only had a queen room and all she could do was call Agoda to cancel the booking, finally she agreed to add the extra room we paid for. When we got to the room it was filthy, there was no kettle or coffee cups only the sugar and coffee. The curtains in the room were ripped and the roller blinds were broken. The bathroom was extremely dirty and the titles around the bath were broken. On the second evening we returned to the hotel at 1130 pm and the main door was locked and we couldn’t get to our room I called the receptionist and she hung up on me 4 times before finally telling me there was a code to get in which was not provided on check in. Overall a disgusting hotel would never stay again

      I love this place. It is convenient to central Ballarat, and if you have a meal there it is wonderful value and excellent service. The owners are friendly and helpful. The only thing is that the rooms need a little updating, I think they look a little tired, but apart from that there is nothing I could fault.

      This would be one of the best Motels I've been too, except for one flaw which didn't bother us too much, but it probably would bother a lot of people. It's right on an intersection and has very noisy traffic. We live on a semi main road so it was ok for us, although a lot noiser than our place. Other than that, value for money, cleaniness of rooms, staff, location to the CBD all really good. We'd stay again.
