This Motor Inn is a great place to stay. You will not encounter nicer more helpful staff or more spotless well cared for accommodation. Whilst not looking amazing from the road once inside it has everything you need. The pool is spacious, the games room is all free and you have a variety of things for the kids to play....

Quick stopover and a second time back there, good quality clean rooms with good facilities (Pool for the kids), convenient location being very close to Sovereign Hill and plenty of close facilities. Will be back again soon!

We have just spent two lovely nights here with our kids. The perfect place for family's with nice clean rooms (and lots of space) the kids loved the pool (I found it a bit cold for my liking) and enjoyed playing in the games room. It's great having the restaurant just next door and the food was really yummy.

Thank-you for the amazing review, It's so great to hear that you and your family had a wonderful stay. I hope the kids enjoyed the water features in the pool as well, we find 33 degrees is normally the right temperature for most. However, if you stay with us again please let reception know and we can adjust the temperature...

Good pool and entertainment facilities, thats all. Put in the room right next to the restaurant. Didnt think much of it till the night club music started. Well I had no sleep till that stopped at 1:30am. Apparently we payed extra for the newly renovated room which is just above an average room for the price. We had dinner at...

The room was spacious and easily accommodated our family or four. the bed very comfortable and facilities were amazing! even with the premium rates over the Christmas break, the room offered reasonable value for what it offered. will certainly stay here again next time...

We stayed here for a night (family of 5 - connecting ground floor rooms). Very clean rooms, excellent friendly staff, amazing food in the Red Lion restaurant/bar. The teenage family members loved the indoor pool and games room. We highly recommend for any stay in Ballarat; family or couple.

Stayed here because of its proximity to Sovereign Hill. The family room is good-sized and sufficient for our family. The extra heater was much appreciated on top of the aircon. We did not make use of any facility here, but did have dinner at the restaurant. Excellent food and service and the goodie bags for children were a bonus. Ordered...

My daughter and I travelled to Ballarat for a calisthenics competition (RSSS) and the team stayed at this motor inn. WOW! We booked ahead for a standard room with ensuite but we were upgraded due to a booking glitch.

We stayed for two nights. the room was very roomy and clean. The Bed was very comfortable. We chose this motel because it was close to Sovereign Hill and was very easy to find. We did not use the restaurant but the café served excellent meals, reasonably priced. Would recommend this establishment highly.
