Handy location for business travel accommodation

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
Very comfortable beds. The rooms were very warm which was nice as it was a cold winters night. Also, well located, close to everything you need, restaurants for dinner and breakfast are all just a stroll away. In addition, the supermarket is only a short walk too.

    Traveled to Ararat for one night only to attend the J-ward ghost tour with friends and Partners 3 rooms booked separately, spacious room, queen bed, sofa, bathroom. Only negative feedback is that information book provided in the room said room service for breakfast can be ordered but staff on arrival said they don’t provide that service. No snack foods in the mini fridge, mattress was rock hard and thin bedding, only shower products provided was an all in one soap, I love a motel that has the soaps, shampoos and conditioners feels gifting, or the chocolate on the pillow on arrival. Wifi connection very handy and smart tv with Netflix you just need your own account. Returning for Aradale tour and will return but hopefully they will amend the breakfast service that would be perfect.

    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.

    Room tip: Definitely make a stop here! You will not be disappointed! :)

    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.

    Room tip: The staff will supply crockery and cutlery if you ask for them.

    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

    Room tip: Do not choose room 8

    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.
