The room was very neat, modern and clean. Great attention attention to detail by the cleaners. Friendly staff. I've stayed in many motels over the years and this would be one of the better ones. I'd recommend this to someone after a slightly better than average accomodation experience. Cheers.

One of the best places I've stayed in and trust me I've stayed at a lot of different accommodation style across the world. Very well appointed tastefully done room. Highly recommend staying here if visiting Ararat.

I only stayed the one night, but it was a real pleasure. The room comprised, a couch, two dining chairs around a dining table and a chair against a desk. It also had a sink and mini bar. You simply do not get this much in a normal country motel. The friendly owners said they have on average over 90%...

At first when it was booked I held my breath a "motor inn" on the Main Street?? But it was great! Our view was of the street but we didn't hear a noise. It has to be the best hotel I have been in for keeping the room dark. It was so clean, nice furnishings. Free WiiFi (that was a...

Best place to stay! Clean, quiet, friendly. Whenever we are in Ararat we stay here. The high standard is consistant. Walking distance from the centre of town. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Danny and Deb

Great price. Our room was spotless and looked like as it had just been renovated. The facilities were excellent. The thing that would make me come back are the couple who run this establishment. I have never had a nicer welcome. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed in Ararat for a conference and the group booking chose this accommodation for us. I'm delighted to say we were very happy! We stayed in a room with queen & single (our 23 yo son was with us). It was along the back, so less traffic noise. Very neat & tidy with all amenities we needed. Great air...

My daughter and I visit Ararat each year for the Eisteddfod. This is a very clean and quiet motel. The microwave and crockery etc is great for self catering breakfast and a late dinner after a long day of dancing. We will definitely continue to stay here on our annual visit.

This is a spotlessly clean, small family run motel which offers friendly service and a quiet location away from the main highway. All on ground level. Continental breakfast available, microwave in room. King room is fairly spacious while standard room is smaller but quite adequate for a night or two stay. Close enough to visit the Grampians and other local...

Wow what a hidden gem. Paid for 1 night end up staying for 2 will definitely stay again. Friendly staff, rooms beautifully maintained, large rooms. microwave and toaster in each room, Foxtel and free Wi-Fi. Close to all shops, local restaurants and walking distance to rural train station. Highly recommended you stay.
