Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Queen size bed - mattresses very comfortable - a bonus for tall couples. Our room and bathroom didn't quite match the website photos, with the restaurant and room service advertised, all closed. Great pub for both breakfast and dinner within a few blocks, which saved the situation.

I requested a ground floor room due to my wife's disability and found that the shower was over the bath which she could not use.

The motel was conveniently located for our plans in Ballarat and it was good to be able to walk to out to the local pub for dinner. It was clear the owners were upgrading the property and working hard to improve the facilities and look of the property. The door for one of the rooms we were staying in was damaged and would benefit from being replaced, it looked as though someone had tried to break in as the door was splintered around the handle. We were let down by the noise of other guests on both nights of our stay. With a large group of men who were also staying being very loud and disruptive outside the rooms until 2am on the first night. We alerted the staff/owners of this after the first night and were assured they would speak to the group and that their behaviour was not acceptable. However this group were able to continue disrupting guests until 4am on the second night, with no request from staff that they be quiet and respect other guests. Eventually we heard another motel guest tell the group to stop. While the fault of the behaviour lies on the rude and disruptive guests, it is disappointing the staff/owners didn’t step in and ensure the other guests were able to sleep and enjoy their stay.

The indoor pool is fantastic for younger kids. My 3yo & 5yo boys had a great time there. The room itself is fine, but note that there's no ability to make meals - not even cutlery, bowls, plates etc. - only a microwave. If that small detail doesn't bother you then I can highly recommend it.
