Ballarat Central City Motor Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Excellent affordability for a quick stay in the heart of Ballarat. Considering it is on the main drag noise level was minimum. We were treated with consideration and the hosts were more than happy to tend to our needs. For the price and convenience we will stay again.

Stayed here for two nights with my partner and we were very happy with both the level of service and the room. I choose the motel because of it's proximity to everything, but knowing it was on a main road we expected traffic noise. Was surprised the noise died off a lot at night and was quite peaceful. We had breakfast the first morning, we really enjoyed it although we couldnt finish it all! We thought the price of the room was really reasonable for what we got and will definitely recommend it.

We were in Ballarat for a birthday so we didn't spend much time in the room, only to sleep. Everything was as you would expect a basic motel would be, although I do feel that $155 for such a small basic room for three people is overpriced. The staff were very nice.

Thank you for your feedback Rhiannon. We are glad the three of you enjoyed your stay with us and we enjoy talking to our guests. We do have other larger rooms, such as the family room and apartment which have a queen bed and bunks in separate rooms and also a spa room which has a single bed in one room and a queen in the other.

Kind regards

Very clean and comfortable room. Enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. Only stayed for one night, but with the proximity to the main shopping area would be a good place to stay for several days.

Only spent one night here and wished it could have been more. Very convenient to the restaurants and shops but quiet and private. Clean and so comfortable here. I hope to return for a longer stay and see much more of Ballarat.

Room Tip: I loved my room with the balcony view of the city.

In January we spent a week in the Studio Spa Apartment. We found it very clean and comfortable. It is in a great location, very close to restaurants and the centre of town. Even though it was on the main road we found it quiet at night.

The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The studio spa gave us the extra space that was nice for an extended stay and allowed us to prepare...

I am a single mum and was travelling with one of my children. I booked 2 nights accommodation online and requested a standard room - queen and.a single. Too often online bookings interpret 2 'adult' aged occupants as a couple and I was disappointed on arrival to find that I had been allocated a queen room and would need to share the bed with my daughter.
The reception office is in need of some freshening up - I was a bit concerned at how the room might look in comparison. It was a pleasant surprise - although a little small the room was well appointed, fresh in decor and very clean.
The hotel itself is well located close to shopping, a supermarket and restaurants.
On the downside, $5 for wifi access (unless I was travelling for business) was a little unexpected. I paid the fee but found the signal weak and so slow I gave up and hot spotted my phone.
On leaving, the office was advertised as open at 7am but at 7.35am the door was locked and the bell was not responded to. There was no key drop facility so I returned to the room, left the key inside and drove away.
