When visiting Ballarat we only really need a place to sleep. We don't spend a lot of time at the motel. The rooms are always clean. The staff are friendly, efficient and very helpful. The self serve continental breakfast room is great with a wide range of cereals, juice, tea & coffee along with bread and spreads for toast. Easy...

This hotel is very dated. The bedding was well washed and faded. The mattress was awful - lumpy & very uncomfortable. The bed linen consisted of a bottom and top sheet, then a cheap fake fur blanket and a thin top cotton bedspread. I was pleased I had my winter "Jarmies ". The kettle, toaster, refrigerator, hair dryer and television...

Booked a twin room for myself and my offsider. Paid by cash and was asked for a $50..00 security fee, duly paid. Upon walking into our room we noticed that the floor is weak, it creaks and when you place a small amount of pressure on the floor around the bathroom door the cupboard moves inward away from the wall,...

The motel is on the old side but it is clean enough to stay over night. The continental breakfast is plentiful. The location is just far enough off the main road to be quiet for a good nights sleep. The free wi-fi is of course a big bonus.

So nice to find an unrenovated old style motel with basic breakfast of cereal and toast thrown in! The room also had a microwave which isn't usual these days. Like stepping back in time and so is the tariff. Surprisingly quiet as it is back off Sturt Street. There are bus stops outside and opposite so it is easy to...

Wife and I stayed for a night after attending a concert in the North Gardens! Usual motel accommodation! Wifi wasn't working and the TV reception kept dropping out! It is a run down accommodation although it suited our needs perfectly considering we paid $98 and only slept there! Breakfast included: toast, cereal, juice, coffee and tea! Great set up on...

Not a lot to say as is very basic, however, it's cheap & clean. Has a pool & outdoor BBQ. You get what you pay for. Have no issues to complain about. It's quiet &, also, directly accross the road from the Ballarat Golf Club which includes the Greenside Bistro. This is a great place for reasonably priced meals. Plus,...

Disappointing considering the price (over $200/night) for family room. The room was musty and hadn't been vacuumed properly, bed covers were tired,bathroom tiles cracked and there were cobwebs in the shower corner. Brekkie was included but ordinary. Would not stay again.
