This is a lovely motel, very comfortable, not far from the centre of Ballarat. The hosts very welcoming. The rooms are comfortable, clean and the kitchenette an unexpected extra. We will be stay here next time we are in Ballarat.

This was not a fabulous stay although sort of clean, it could have used a steam clean of the carpets. They did have a strange smell. Only one night was enough. The kitchen was OK with toaster and microwave but the warning sign ... if caught cooking it was a HUGE FINE for cleaning that you would find on your credit card after you left, made us feel uncomfortable. The bathroom was cramped with no shelf. Had to use kitchen sink for brushing teeth and washing dishes ... ugg !!

Thanks for your comments. We appreciated your stay. As you said even we gave enough warnings to our guest for the misconduct and you can still had the smell. We believe all the business have their terms and conditions. We do have shelf in bathroom for the spare toilet paper and face washers in every room. I am sorry to hear you do not like the sink for this motel hoever most of the motels in Australia just have one sink in the room not two though

We decided to stay overnight somewhere near Ballarat, and only booked at the last minute. This one looked like it might be ok for just the one night.

Glad it wasn't longer. Really found pretty much nothing to recommend it.

At least it was pretty cheap. Would not stay again.
Thank OzDrGreg
