Check in was fast and friendly and no problem when we locked ourselves out of our room moments after arrival. The room was clean, spacious given the price paid and had a sofa, table and chairs etc -quite often in cheaper motels, you end up witting on the bed to watch TV! The older stle air con let the room...

I booked into the ambassador hotel through an online booking agency. As there was no option to include children in the booking process I contacted the owner directly (Gary) and was assured that the 3 of us could stay in a double room. On arrival at the motel we were refused our room and were told we were not able...

Room was very spacious with great beds. Excellent hosts, who were very friendly and helpful. Our children had a wonderful time in the pool.

Stayed here for one night during the Cabaret Festival. Owners at reception were very friendly, and happy to give some local advice. Bed was so comfortable, and the electric blanket helped keep things cosy. Wifi was a little patchy, but that didn't blight my stay. It is a little bit out of the way, but for a good nights sleep...

Not sure where the previous reviewer stayed but I don't think it was here. The couple at reception were very friendly and welcoming. I would have given 5 stars except for the antiquated aircondioner and bathroom fan. Both were very noisy and inefficient also better lighting over the mirror in the bathroom would have been handy. Otherwise I can highly...

The People at this Motor Inn were very welcoming. As we arrived late in the afternoon they had even turned the heating on to make our arrival more pleasant The beds were extremely comfortable and we were able to enjoy the bed night of the 6 we were away

Excellent!! Perfect for our overnighter when visiting Ballarat. Dealt straight with owners, who were lovely and cooked a great, well priced breakfast. Room was spacious, clean, well equipped and a comfy bed with electric blankets. Happy we couldn't hear any noise in our room. Management suggested a couple places to eat and got that right too. Will definitely go back....
