While on business in Ararat I stayed at the motor inn. It has everything you required for a few days a way from home. Very modern room at a reasonable price with a kitchenette, TV, internet and a very comfortable bed. The place is clean and run by a very friendly people. The place was fantastic and I highly recommend...

My friend and I stayed here overnight on our way through to Melbourne, and to undertake the local ghost tour. As soon as we arrived we were met with a super friendly and helpful operator who answered all my questions about directions, a place for dinner, and things to do, before I even open my mouth! He was great. The...

Comfortable, clean and quiet room, even with neighbours each side. Very well presented site, with sitting out area for each unit. Helpful owners/managers; took up their suggestion for dinner, 4 blocks away, great food.

I stayed one night at this hotel. It's well located within a minutes drive to the centre of town. It's a quiet location, with very friendly staff/owners. If it's something spectacular you're after, this hotel is not for you. It's a typical country town style room with furnishings which probably haven't changed in the last 20 years. That said, if...

The room was very neat, modern and clean. Great attention attention to detail by the cleaners. Friendly staff. I've stayed in many motels over the years and this would be one of the better ones. I'd recommend this to someone after a slightly better than average accomodation experience. Cheers.

One of the best places I've stayed in and trust me I've stayed at a lot of different accommodation style across the world. Very well appointed tastefully done room. Highly recommend staying here if visiting Ararat.

I only stayed the one night, but it was a real pleasure. The room comprised, a couch, two dining chairs around a dining table and a chair against a desk. It also had a sink and mini bar. You simply do not get this much in a normal country motel. The friendly owners said they have on average over 90%...

At first when it was booked I held my breath a "motor inn" on the Main Street?? But it was great! Our view was of the street but we didn't hear a noise. It has to be the best hotel I have been in for keeping the room dark. It was so clean, nice furnishings. Free WiiFi (that was a...

Best place to stay! Clean, quiet, friendly. Whenever we are in Ararat we stay here. The high standard is consistant. Walking distance from the centre of town. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Danny and Deb

Great price. Our room was spotless and looked like as it had just been renovated. The facilities were excellent. The thing that would make me come back are the couple who run this establishment. I have never had a nicer welcome. Thoroughly recommended.
