Had the pleasure to stay here the other week . The owner is a down to earth person and will help where he can. Its nice and close to Sovereign Hill witch is good,only about 700 meters down the rd. They have a nice clean restaurant that opens for lunch & dinner with a good variety of meals on offer . Will definetly be back here on our next trip

Room Tip: close to Sovereign Hill all rooms are good

A last minute decision to go to Melbourne We needed to stay overnight so decided to try Ballarat We found this place and are so glad we did. Arriving late at 9:30 pm They are very friendly and helpful here. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and very clean The car was able to be parked close by. We were able to sleep peacefully We will definitely stay again with no hesitation

The rooms are dated, functional and clean. Nothing spectacular though. The bed is too firm for my liking, the shower over the bath not great, but the room was clean and didn’t smell as some others of it’s ilk do. BUT the restaurant was very nice, the staff very helpful and the food was great. Worth a visit for a meal if nothing else. Ample servings of beautifully cooked, flavoursome food.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road - they are noisy at night.

First time to stay here. I was given room 11 which was a large suite so I was impressed. However, the suite is right on the street corner, the traffic doesn't stop all night. Trucks were a constant annoyance. I had little sleep all night.
I mentioned upon checking out that double glazing would be a good addition, but I was told the owner wouldn't consider it. I am sure Ballarat has better places to stay than the Barkly.
Some pest control would be good also as 4 crickets were found wallowing in the bath tub in the morning.

Room Tip: Do not take room 11

Lovely looking Motel in the heart of Ballarat. The reception area like the rest of the motel is spotless. The room is fresh, reasonable size with nice size toilet and shower and a mini bar with reasonable prices. There is also a small balcony unfortunately people use them to smoke and best to keep the door closed if you don't like second hand smoke.
As for sleep quality, shocking the night we stayed there, a public holiday, the people in the adjoining room partied hard feeling like they shared our room, in the morning I found a door partly hidden by a single bed, no wonder it was noisy

Room Tip: Check your room is not adjoining
