Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at 4 different motels over our week trip away and this one far exceeded our expectations! Highly recommend! From the start they were very accomodating with us calling quite late as our plans changed and we needed to find a motel at the last minute. Everything was ready for us on arrival, especially the lovely hot shower we needed. I wish we could have stayed longer than one night. Very clean, well presented, comfortable. Conveniently positioned in the town. The staff were very friendly.

My wife and I stayed two nights in a Queen Room at the Ararat Colonial Lodge Motel. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was easily the best motel room we have stayed in on recent travels, and was less expensive than all others. The room was spacious, clean, bright, and well appointed, and it included a good-sized comfortable sofa. The bed was also very comfortable. I have no hesitation in recommending the Ararat Colonial Lodge Motel. Dr Edward Vaughan.

No running hot water in the shower in room 8, poor water pressure and leaks from every tap in that room. When you are travelling i would consider an operating shower as an absolute must provide to the client so they can start the day fresh....there is no consideration here for the guest and the issue is not a new one. There was no response from reception when i emailed them at opening time the next day. The broken tiles in the shower are also very unsafe for users. location is good in centre of town near the highway and supermrket

We stayed 1 night here in a family room, which was a decent size with simple amenities - microwave, kettle, TV. Cutlery had to be requested from reception. The ensuite bathroom was large, with ample space by the sink, and a walk-in shower (not a stall/cubicle). There was a dispenser for soap - it was some sort of all-in-one formula - but if you need good shampoo/conditioner, better to bring your own. We found our room neat and tidy, a short walk to groceries and the main street in town. The staff were helpful, yet unobtrusive. There is a small pool on the property but it was too cold for a dip when we visited. Parking is of course available on the property. Overall, we had a pleasant stay that suited the budget.

The bed and the location were excellent,however it was a very cold night and the heater in the reverse cycle struggled to keep us warm,when we retreated to bed we were warm but had to keep our coats on when we were up,in the morning we were well located for coffee and breakfast with several cafes in walking distance

Clean room, standard facilities & worst bed I’ve ever slept on in my life. (Stayed here last year & beds had mattress toppers, notice this time they had removed them, bad decision) Was like sleeping on rocks. Very sleepless night. Not impressed at all. This was my second stay at this motel and wasn’t impressed as much as my last stay unfortunately.. consider other places before this one .
