2nd hotel I've stayed at in Ararat and this one was good. Very accomodating owners, rooms exceptionally clean, shower was wonderful, bed super comfortable, bar fridge prices very reasonable, under cover car parking very convenient and reasonably priced. Trains during night a little noisy but not enough to make stay uncomfortable. Will rebook for future stays.

This proved to be a very good choice for a night's rest for our interstate travel. Marla arranged for our late arrival to occur without a hitch, and our room was spick and span, and very comfortable indeed. Thanks!

Booked 2 rooms over the phone, very happy, everything needed there, friendly managers and a short walk for an excellent meal at the Blue Duck Hotel ( as suggested by motel Mgr). Will definitely stay again.

We were greeted by a friendly smile and a chat. The reviews said the rooms were clean and comfy and they were right. They have all been renovated to high spec and were spotlessly clean. Lovely large ensuite. Would highly recommend.

My wife and I stayed at the Inn for 1 night to break up the journey from Melbourne to Adelaide. The rooms are clean and very comfortable, the shower was excellent. We would certainly stay here again should we be in the area

Friendly and efficient service. The motel was a neat as a pin. The beds were very comfortable. There was a small kitchenette including a sink and microwave, so if you wanted to it would be easy to self-cater.

Thank learuss
