Horsham is geographically pretty much half way between Adelaide and Melbourne on the Western Highway so a great stopover town. The Darlot is about 2km from town centre and typical of the 80's drive inn roadside motels that line most towns entrances in Australia. Nothing flash from the outside but don't let it fool you. The owners have upgraded the... More

Very competitively priced, extremely comfortable night's sleep, electricals fairly new and in good order, water very hot. However the permanent fittings (e.g. bedside cabinets) were very worn and, although the unit was superficially clean, some areas needed more careful attention. We did have a least expensive unit and others have been upgraded (only a additional $10/night) however we didn't see... More

Certainly nothing flashy about this place but it does what it says on the tin. Room was quite spacious, air-conditioned and had basic Foxtel. The bloke at reception was a funny character and brought down some milk in a jug for our coffees! Probably wouldn't take advantage of the pool out the back. That area could certainly use a tidy...

We were driving from Melbourne to Adelaide and decided to make a break with an overnight stay in Horsham. Darlot Motor Inn welcomed us and we found it to be one of those "faded glory days long past" type of motel. Certainly was clean, quiet and comfortable with all the things you would need for an overnight stay. Looks like... More

Needed to stay overnight halfway from S.A to Vic. We decided this accommodation due to price, location, middle review rating and plus we would only be there overnight. Very helpful on the phone the night before booking the room. Very helpful when on our journey advising of our later than expected 11pm arrival. Reception was even kept open for us,... More

A week prior to my placement in Horsham I was worried about finding budget accommodation that would be able to get me through a 5 week stay without being too expensive. Despite the fact that I was asking for a long term stay, everywhere else in Horsham seemed to still be over priced and long term stay deals seemed to... More

We found this motel on tripadvisor stopped here over night with the family, linen was all clean, bed was comfortable bathroom needs a bit of updating but fine for a quick stop over, price was good value for a family of 4.

The Darlot provides everything I need when travelling. Good bed, comfortable amenities, and a reasonable tariff . The owners are friendly and very helpful. They are gradually upgrading the rooms and surrounds so this little gem will only improve. I'll be back.

Stayed at the Darlot Motor Inn as usual as I regularly go to Horsham for work. Over the years I had tried other motels but didn't find one that could compare with for value.
