              Perfect for us”

              This was a really good choice for us - the location was great, the room was renovated very tastefully, and it had every facility we needed. It was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and the heater worked well. If we had to be picky, we would say that the pool was smaller than in the website photos. We had a balcony, and plenty of teas/sugars etc. The man who checked us in and out was great - really friendly and helpful. The free wi-fi worked really well. And even though the motel is right near a main highway, the room was quiet and we couldn't hear the traffic. We would definitely stay there again amd recommend it to others.

              Great value motel”

              Stayed here overnight. Tariff was very reasonable. They offer a 1pm check-in. Everything clean and comfortable. There is a microwave and toaster in the room along with a kettle. Heat lamps in the bathroom were welcome. Walking distance to several different dining options. Very quiet even though the motel is close to the main road. Would stay here again.

              A great find”

              We have been travelling to Ballarat for a number of years now and have explored a number of motels in the area. Central City Motor Inn has now gone to the top of our list for accommodation in Ballarat for their Family Rooms. Includes a little kitchenette which is perfect for us (who do not like to dine out for every meal) without being too small. The kids room has a tv as well so that they can get out of our hair for a little while if need be! Close to supermarkets and the city centre and eateries if we do want to go out. Staff were super friendly and welcoming. We loved our stay there and will definitely be booking again!

              Whilst this is an older styled Hotel, the place is impeccably clean and a great location for a visit to Ballarat. Our room had plenty of space, hand, well equipped kitchenette and was quiet and comfortable....we'll be back for longer stay for sure.

              I would recommend Central City Motel in Ballarat. It was central, clean and spacious. We spent 1 night in a family room (2 bedrooms) and would be happy to go back there if visiting or going through Ballarat again.

              Rooms were clean, great having a mini kitchenette. Staff were great even heating the indoor pool in 9 degree weather for my crazy child. Would definitely stay again. Only con was the water pressure in the shower but it was still warm enough.
