Ararat Colonial Lodge Motel
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Ararat
Reviewed 25 December 2012 via mobile

Arrived Christmas night on the way to STH Australia with 3 families. Everything was closed and kids starving. Jason the owner brought over chicken,dessert ,nibbles for everyone.He made sure we had plenty of room for our trailers. Way beyond normal hospitality.The rooms were very clean, plenty of hot water, obviously old but just what we needed after a long drive. Just a nice basic motel

This hotel is central to main shopping strip and a few of the local attractions, like J-ward. Friendly service and clean. Bathrooms just need an upgrade! But overall, reccommend staying if visiting Ararat.

I had no problems with the motel and was glad to get a room when most of the other motels were booked out. Staff were helpful and the breakfast was good value. I left a good book behind and they posted it to me.

we have stayed at 2 other golden chain prioperties, so we didnt book this place, but instead choose to just get a room on the day with the thought that the hotel was be an adequate level. but this hotel was old and tired. the pluses were that the internet was free (and fast like they claim) and it was nice and quiet being back off the road. but not many other positives to go on i'm afraid.

If you want to holiday in 1982, this is your place. Everything is old, yet clean. Unfortunately my room had virtually no hot water, not good in mid winter when it was 0 degrees outside. There was no attempt to rectify the issue or move me to a room with hot water. The service was terrible, I waited 15 minutes to be checked in. The heating in the room is inadequate as I still had to be rugged up with it on maximum. They could not even be bothered to maintain their lawns and their was a broken sign in driveway, the place looks terrible. I would have happily paid a lot more for decent accommodation down the road had it not been booked out well in advance.
