A large room, with all the amenties, including a great shower, in a quiet location and close to the main shopping precinct. It was so handy being able to park infront of the unit with plenty of room between vehicles. It was so nice to be greeted by a friendly host after a long trip.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Colonial Lodge. I arrived at 10am and Bruce was so friendly and helpful. I was able to check straight into Room 1 which had two large windows - so much lighter than the other rooms. It was on the street corner which I initially though may be noisy but it was really quiet. Comfy bed, good shower and excellent heating - very cosy. Located just a short walk from the main street, cafes, pubs and opposite the supermarket so an ideal location or all. It was too cold to try the swimming pool. Thank you Bruce for an enjoyable stay.

We stayed one night in this well located motel in Ararat. Bruce and Denise were extremely helpful in arranging the requirements of our group with suggestions for activities and places to eat, & even calling me to remind me to change a dinner booking when our numbers changed. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and the pool was a perfect place for for some of the group to wind down after our day of visiting the sites of Ararat.Definitely recommended when staying in Ararat.

This is a good little place for an overnighter. Owners are friendly - great customer service. Beds are comfy and showers have good pressure. Convenient location - close to main street, walking distance to woolies and nearby food options. Walls are a little thin but easy to block out the neighbours.

My family enjoyed a two night get-away in Ararat and surrounding places, visiting Hall's Gap Zoo, waterfalls, lakes and the highest Grampian mountain. We would like to return and see so much more, and preferably stay at the same motel which offered friendly and excellent service.
