“Great cbd location for older style motel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Location and value for money are the advantages of this older style motel. Located in the cbd area with many restaurants etc in walking distance. The rooms are old style, clean, comfortable with TV fridge and normal facilities. Outdoor pool and on siet parking for the ground and first floor units. On site bar and breakfast facilities, or just go for a walk around the block.

We spent the Queens Birthday weekend in Ballarat at the Mid City Motel. I found the room to be very outdated as far as decor however, it was warm which for Ballarat in the winter is important. We are a family of 4 and were accommodated in a double bed, single bed and rollaway. This made the room quite tight for space however we were out most of the day so not too bothered. I thought it was over priced for what it is but I would stay again if it is another short stay. They offer daily room service which is good

I stayed one night mid week and it was fine. The upsides - the bed was very comfortable, and the shower was hot. The room was a good size and the TV was easy to use. Parking was good.
The downside - the room was a bit tired (Grout in the shower falling out, walls not quite clean (maybe need a repaint) curtains need a revamp, etc).
All in all it was a good nights sleep in a mid level country motel - maybe slightly overdone at $108 per night?

Needed a stop over between Frankston and Adelaide and booked here through wotif. Got a small family room (queen and single) for $105. Room was clean, spacious with ensuite and bed was comfy. Couldn't ask for more. Friendly service at check in as well as at breakfast and check out. Would happily stay for longer if staying in Ballarat again after all the best things to see are outside the motel. Just remember its a budget motel, price reflects this so it's not modern, it's not fancy but it's good value for money and most importantly a good nights sleep.

We had a group booking and from start to finish were totally looked after. The property is an older property but with that we found the rooms were very roomy. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Travelling with a group we did need extra requirements and the staff didn't hesitate to help us...from extra pillows to providing microwaves. The breakfasts every morning were a treat and we had a special buffet meal booked and it was outstanding! The location is perfect as it is right in the middle of town so you have every convenience right there within walking distance. We would certainly stay with you again! Many thanks.
