4/5 Good

Travelled with partner
Got a phone call 10 minutes before check in to ask they made a mistake and they didn’t have a room for us. They were going to find us another room but we worked everything around being there not knowing the area at all. Very disappointed

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
On the surface looks ok, but fridge dirty, old ice cream and papers stuck to freezer, I left them a note to clean it, bathroom floor was dirty and it smelt of mould, bed was comfy, but no powerpoints in the room, no access to wifi, front door was stuck and warped, no lifts to upstairs areas, no glasses in the room we had to go downstairs and ask for them, receptionist was nice, we had been on the road 2 weeks, this was actually the worst of all the motels we stayed at, and overpriced considering lack of amenities and cleanliness . We have family in Ballarat, but will not stay here again on our next visit.

Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
The room was comfortable, but did not live up to expectations of a 2 bedroom plus living room. It is really one motel room with another bedroom to the side. The bathroom did not match pictures on the website at all. It was broken and shabby. I’m not sure how this room was deluxe or superior.
