We were greeted by a friendly smile and a chat. The reviews said the rooms were clean and comfy and they were right. They have all been renovated to high spec and were spotlessly clean. Lovely large ensuite. Would highly recommend.

My wife and I stayed at the Inn for 1 night to break up the journey from Melbourne to Adelaide. The rooms are clean and very comfortable, the shower was excellent. We would certainly stay here again should we be in the area

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.

First time ever in a motor inn. We were greated with a warm welcome advised of the best place to eat in town ( food was delicious) and given directions to the famous ghost tour. The accommodation did not disappoint. The rooms were emaculate. Large shower, queen size bed and a well stocked mini bar. Not to forget good size...

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...
