I stayed there for 3nights. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. I was very happy with the services and the food. I am a cleanliness lover and would give barkly motorlodge 4.5 stars out of 5 in terms of cleanliness. Had good time there with my family.

We needed an escape so headed to Ballarat for the night. Phoned on our way and the booking was easy. We were given directions on how to get there and told to call back if we got lost. (Which we did). First time in Ballarat and couldn't be happier. We had a spa room which was just awesome and the...

Arrived at the motel and received our keys. Walked into the room and found it too look quite nice for what we paid. Had a look around the room and then saw how filthy it actually was. Hairs and dust everywhere in the spa bath, sheets with stains with I don't know what. Half eaten mouldy donut and half eaten...

Chose this venue for a reunion get-together. The standard room is just that, standard but clean and serviceable. Was not impressed at being woken up at 7am Sunday morning by a very noisy shower next door. On the plus side staff were very friendly and dinner in the restaurant was very enjoyable.

So we are a family heading to Ballarat and we need a simple place to sleep and shower which is well located, clean and offers secure parking. That's what we needed and that is what we got and more. Fair to say we enjoyed our brief stay. This property represents true value for money and we couldn't be happier with...

Room service was great, same price as if you ate downstairs and was quick service. Room was clean and out of the 5 different places I have stayed over my holiday this was the only place to have a clean exhaust fan in the bathroom. The heating worked great and was lovely warm considering how cold and wet it was...

“Fairly confusing room layout. Some accessible from a separate external entry and some were in a separate building. As it was cool and rainy we got damp trying to find the door indicated at reception until we went back and found our room up the stairs near reception.”
