Great Night's Sleep.

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Dec 2023
My wife & I had a great night at the Ararat Motor Inn.
Nice comfortable bed, plenty of space with a sofa and dining table.
It could have done with a little more tea and coffee and the water pressure in the otherwise beautiful bathroom was a bit soft.
I would stay again, taking some extra tea & coffee :-)

This motel is a few blocks from cafes and pubs but is in a quiet part of town. Not being on the highway means you don't hear trucks going past at night. Rooms are well equipped and the bathrooms are huge and modern. Motel also has plenty of parking so is great if you are towing a trailer which can be parked outside your room. The beds were warm and comfortable, being fitted with electric blankets, so I got a good night's sleep. Couldn't ask for more.

Really nice place to stay, rooms are excellent, I spoke to Harry on the phone to book, I got a $10.00 discount on the room as the one I wanted was booked, but I didn't get my free bag of chips Harry lol... All in all I could not fault a thing, I arrived about 8pm, the room was spotless clean & preheated for me. I would highly recommend staying there for anyone from a single to family. All in all just a big thank you.
Regards
Colin

Arriving close to midnight on a cold night, it was a lovely surprise to find the heater on and the room toasty warm - thank you Harry! Coffee pod machine and great minibar in the kitchen. Big fluffy towels and a set of scales in the bathroom were also a nice addition. Block out blinds and a very comfy bed made for a great sleep. Exceptionally clean room with parking at the front door. Will definitely stay again.

We had a great two nights at the Ararat Motor Inn. We left it too late to get accomodation in Halls gap for our day trip to the Grampians and were lucky we managed to get a room in Ararat considering it was the long weekend. It’s only 40 minutes to Halls gap from Ararat so it wasn’t too much of a stretch.
The room we had was spotless, warm and cosy and had everything we needed. The wifi was strong which made it easy to plan our day trip. We liked that we could park directly outside our room which made unloading our luggage super easy and the neighbourhood seemed safe . While our room was on the road side and was pretty quiet, I did wonder if some of the back accomodation would notice some railway noise.
The room was serviced on the day we were out, tidied, bed made, crockery cleaned and put away and the room ship shape again. Tea and coffee was also generously replaced as well as the coffee capsules.
Shower water pressure was strong and no lack of hot water which hubby was very pleased about.
Checkin was casual, super easy and no problem thanks to Harry.
All in all a nice stay and would happily recommend and stay again!

We recently stayed at the motel on the way to the Grampians and was blown away by the excellent service provided by Michael, our host. He was so lovely and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was enjoyable. I highly recommend this motel for their exceptional customer service and comfortable atmosphere.

Room tip: Plenty of on-site parking. Only thing the room lacked was well positioned power points and/power boards.
