Positive Reviews

Well located

Being located on the main highway, the motel is easy to find and despite the main road guests say it is quiet inside. The accommodation is just across the road from a golf club, and there is a bus stop outside too. The motel itself is just a short drive from the centre of Ballarat.

Free breakfast

Guests get a free continental breakfast, which has been noted as a positive, especially considering this is motel is a budget establishment.

Free car parking

The fact that car parking is free, and available without reservation, has been appreciated by  guests.

Negative Reviews

In need of renovation

You may find that the property would benefit from maintenance and general updating. Guests say the appearance is a little run down, with issues including items being broken and air-conditioning units not working very well. The rooms could reportedly do with a lick of paint, too.

Exposed wires and lots of power extensions

Some guests have reported that some rooms have got exposed electrical wiring. Whether or not it is a safety hazard, it does not inspire confidence. On top of this, there seems to be a lot of electrical extension leads being used in some rooms. Again, this does not help make for a comfortable stay.

Cold during the winter

Lots of guests have said that, if you visit during the winter, you can expect to be cold. The heaters are said to take a while to get the room warmed up, which might be something to do with the cold draught that comes under the doors. In short, it might be an idea to pack an extra jumper if you feel the chill more than most.
