Friendly and efficient service. The motel was a neat as a pin. The beds were very comfortable. There was a small kitchenette including a sink and microwave, so if you wanted to it would be easy to self-cater.

Our company regularly use the Ararat Motor Inn on a weekly basis and we have never had a problem. The rooms are always spotless and the location is perfect, just on the edge of town so a lot less noise but close enough to the main street to be able to walk everywhere. There are fantastic options with the room...

The Queen room we booked was very comfortable and quite large. The place was spotlessly clean and we enjoyed the large fluffy bath towels. The room came with a kitchenette and a pod coffee machine. We didn't use the kitchenette but the coffee was well appreciated. Our only criticism was the price - at $150 per night for a motel...

My friend and I stayed here overnight on our way through to Melbourne, and to undertake the local ghost tour.

He was great. The...
