I booked into the ambassador hotel through an online booking agency. As there was no option to include children in the booking process I contacted the owner directly (Gary) and was assured that the 3 of us could stay in a double room. On arrival at the motel we were refused our room and were told we were not able...

Room was very spacious with great beds. Excellent hosts, who were very friendly and helpful. Our children had a wonderful time in the pool.

Super friendly and helpfull owners welcomed us here. The motel is in a street with lots of motels, little outside the city center. If you have a car it's a great pick. Room is clean and spacious, and owners are more than happy to help you with whatever you need. The beautiful lake is nearby, and ballarat is a cute...

Stayed here for one night during the Cabaret Festival. Owners at reception were very friendly, and happy to give some local advice. Bed was so comfortable, and the electric blanket helped keep things cosy. Wifi was a little patchy, but that didn't blight my stay. It is a little bit out of the way, but for a good nights sleep...

Not sure where the previous reviewer stayed but I don't think it was here. The couple at reception were very friendly and welcoming. I would have given 5 stars except for the antiquated aircondioner and bathroom fan. Both were very noisy and inefficient also better lighting over the mirror in the bathroom would have been handy. Otherwise I can highly...

The People at this Motor Inn were very welcoming. As we arrived late in the afternoon they had even turned the heating on to make our arrival more pleasant The beds were extremely comfortable and we were able to enjoy the bed night of the 6 we were away

Excellent!! Perfect for our overnighter when visiting Ballarat. Dealt straight with owners, who were lovely and cooked a great, well priced breakfast. Room was spacious, clean, well equipped and a comfy bed with electric blankets. Happy we couldn't hear any noise in our room. Management suggested a couple places to eat and got that right too. Will definitely go back....

The beds were very comfortable, the room was heated quite well, (extremely cold week). Quite a small room but quite comfortable. $99 for a queen bed room, NO INTERNET. Small microwave, jug and fridge. Only thing that was a little off putting was the man at reception, it costs nothing to smile!
