Great for an overnight stay on the way to Adelaide, we arrived late and the room was ready, they were so helpful on the phone. The rooms are small but very nicely done, the bathrooms are very small but look newly finished. The truck and train noise woke us a few times, but this is to be expected along the...

We visit annually with a social group of motorcyclists, and we have a great weekend, ending each day relaxing at The Chalambar Motel. The rooms are clean, modern and (whilst some are on the small side) they are very comfortable. Christine and Ian are wonderful hosts who make us feel at home, like extended family. We will be back... again!

I booked a queen room at very short notice. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Bathroom was tight,but immaculate. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely stay again on my way through.

We stayed in a Standard room which was small but OK for a quick overnight stop. The owners/staff were helpful & friendly. The room was clean & the bed comfortable. Whilst on the main road, double glazed windows kept the room quiet. However trains rattled past all night which wasn't a concern for us.

We (3 friends) were going to Ararat for the night tour of Aradale Lunatic Asylum and decided to give Chalambar Motel a try. It is a bit out of town (about 5 minutes from the centre of town) and on the main road, but with the double glazing it was a great choice. The rooms were extremely clean (my only...

This is a motel worth your stay and worth every second of your sleep. You would sleep like a baby. The beds are comfortable with electric blankets, air con, hot drink making facilities. The owners Chris and Ian are very welcoming couple and make you feel at home. The family rooms are very spacious and plenty of room for a...

It's now been my 2nd stay at the Chalambar Motel. I stayed here in 2013 & 2014. The hotel itself is in an easy location to find on the Adelaide side of Ararat. The rooms are compact yet clean and pleasant.
