Nice option for travellers to Ballarat
Everything was fine. We were allowed to check in an hour early and the room was clean and functional. The price we paid (a bit below the typical rate, if I'm not mistaken) seemed quite acceptable for the services on offer. The only minor quibbles we had were with the thin walls and the noisy hot water pipes. Nothing dreadful, however. A microwave in the room would have also been nice, though to be fair, we knew going in that the room didn't have one. We would stay again.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Barkly Motorlodge. It is right in town, so close to all shops and services. The room was spotless. Bathroom was spotless and I felt I could walk barefoot in the motel room, because of the clean carpet and whole area. Staff and Management were amazing, so friendly and very obliging. Enjoyed a really delicious meal in the Restaurant for a really affordable price. Thank you to all concerned for an amazing 2 nights stay.

100% comfortable and convenient
Location = Convenience. Room Facility. Spacious
we extended our stay on the fly during out visit to ballarat and hotel is 1 of the deciding factor. 1. the staff are professional. good knowledge of area, directions and suggestions. 2. Location is walking distance to 2 big supermarket and major shopping belt, and on the main road toward the major attractions (Sovereign Hill and wildlife park). 3. Room size is very spacious and well-equipped, with queen bed, 3 seat L-sofa and a bonus microwave which helps us a lot with snacks preparation. 4. Bathroom is big with a big tub. Though we did not fully utilize the tub much.
