Large and warm rooms, Big bathroom, Big comfy beds. I travel a lot and find it hard to find motel rooms that stay warm. Friendly hosts, Will certainly stay there again. Close to the city centre and Mall.

I stay in many different motels on a regular basis, and I found The Menzies to standout from all others. Beautifully appointed and the hosts went out of their way to accommodate out needs. The room was immaculate with all the very best furniture and fittings. I found that although the location is right in the centre of town the traffic noise was not noticeable.

I have stayed many times over the last 7 years, mainly for business, but keep coming back because of the personal service Judy & Anthony provide. They have always accommodated my needs, as my notice & check in & out times can vary greatly. Rooms are well appointed, with plenty of room to work at the provided desk & space to relax on the comfortable couches.
Centrally located with only a short walk to the many restaurants of Ballarat.
Thoroughly recommend the Menzies.

Room Tip: For family trips, the 2 storey appartments are great, with a spa bath included.

As a family we decided to go on a road trip holiday taking us through Ballarat heading to the 12 Apostles. Two nights were pre booked at the Menzies with a plan to see some of the local attractions. On arrival at reception we were warmly greeted by Judy, who happily spent some time acquainting us with the local area and recommending places to eat. She had also turned the air conditioners to warm our accommodation prior to checking in (A nice touch appreciated by all as it was a cold and wet day). Those with a larger vehicle will find the parking tight but not impossible to get into. The Motel on the outside is tidy, well-presented and situated in the heart of Ballarat with easy access to local attractions and shopping. The family room we stayed in was as advertised, with upstairs accommodation for the adults and a Spa to boot!! Kids were downstairs in the bunk beds. For those wanting to cook their own meals the room also had a small kitchen. The room was very clean and provided two comfortable nights in location. On Judy’s recommendation we ate at a local Italian/pizza place known as 'The Forge Pizzeria'; great spot to eat and family friendly. Might pay to book a table ... we struck it lucky and snagged a table for 4 on walking in. Should we pass through this area again, we would stay here again. Only a 5 minute drive to Sovereign Hill ... also highly recommend planning a day or two here.

I have stayed at the Menzies many times, both business and personal, and the experience has been brilliant every time. I have always been treated with nothing but courtesy and respect. I would not stay any where else, and I would recommend this accommodation to anyone that are wanting a great experience when staying in Ballarat.
