This motel was extremely comfortable, it was very well priced in a greet location, the owners were friendly and helpful. My wife and I had been looking around Victoria on a weeks holiday, and this motel ticked all our boxes.

This centrally located motel provides roomy accommodation plus basic cooking facilities ( microwave and crockery). Guest laundry is also a plus. The rooms are clean and attractive. Parking can be tight but there's free on street for larger vehicles. A walk to most city restaurants and venues.

The twin room was clean and spacious enough to set up a portacot without having to play tetris to move around it. Easy walking distance to city centre and Bridge St Mall and restaurants. Hosts were very friendly.

This motel ticks all the boxes for a affordable overnight stay. Friendly from first contact and all throughout our stay. Very clean and excellent location. The little balcony provided a welcome spot to watch the comings and goings of the street. Would definitely stay here again.

Can't praise highly enough. Reception was outstanding and friendly. Bed was so comfortable and the rates are very competitive. The buffet breakfast was that of a 5 star restaurant. Would recommend to anyone passing through.

Hi, On check in you were advised that check out was 10am. At 10.15 am we knocked on the door to remind you of this in a kind and courteous manner and you were actually still in bed. You also returned the key at 11.05 am and not 10.30 am. The extra charge came as our cleaner had to work...

We travelled to Ballarat for an evening meal with our son who lives in a rural area of Ballarat. We looked for a nice, moderately priced place to stay near the centre of the city. The Ballarat Central City Motor Inn fitted all our requirements. The room and bathroom were very clean and modern. It had everything you expect to...

The owner was very friendly and welcoming, easily giving me advice about getting to sites around town. Room was clean and comfortable, great shower. Some noise from the road traffic outside, ok with earplugs.

Stayed here for one night and was very pleased. At the start of the city centre, 5mins walk from two supermarkets. The rooms were well presented, renovated and very clean. Beds were reasonably comfy. We were at the front on the main road into town, which was noisy with traffic up until about 10pm. I use earplugs and slept well....

“Upstairs room was nice, with balcony looking over town. My room was by the stairs, which meant I had some noise from people going up and down, so if I was in Ballarat again I'd ask for a room away from the stairs.”
