Clean and tidy
Room was very clean. Close to the main road, so you can hear the traffic. Bed was very comfortable - we had a king size. If we went to Ararat again, would stay here again.

Ararat amble
Comfortable enough in the room but on a very busy highway and near a high freight use railway line. Therefore noisy all night.

Roomy room
This stay was comfortable, but no more so than most others I have stayed in. The room, however, was very roomy.
David, au1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Simple & basic accommodation - nothing special
Large room in a reasonable condition (freshly re-done bathroom was nice) however pretty poor sleeps due to considerable noise. Very poorly sound-insulated - a lot of noise from the nearby road and the older bar fridge all night. Walking distance to the main street in Ararat is a positive, but lack of WIFI in rooms (only available at reception, apparently) is inconvenient for business trips (despite there being a good work space for it). Check-in/check-out was super easy - reception didn't appear to be routinely staffed, but I received my key pretty promptly. Not unfriendly service, but pretty basic.

Good 6.0
Not a very pleasant experience
First, when we arrived in the afternoon, no staff was at the reception for us to check in. After staff came, she couldn't find our booking.Then after she found our booking, she asked me to pay which I have paid already when I made the booking online. And she also asked me how many beds I need. I am sure that was clearly written on our booking. Our room was on the main road side. It was very noisy.

OK if all you're after is a bed
Was OK for what we needed it for, a place to sleep. Bed was comfy, pillows were not great but clean. There are no fireplaces in the rooms (advertised) and no tub just a shower. The free drinks in the fridge were a jug of tap water and those little single serve milks for coffee and tea. Staff were fine but we had very little interaction. Nice looking little play ground and trampoline outside.

Exceptional 10.0
Booked this hotel as a last minute stop over between adelaide and Melbourne. I have absolutely no negatives for the price we paid. Room was basic but absolutely spotless. All amenities that we needed were available. Easy check in and out with polite staff. Few places to eat in the area but as we arrived quite late we only bought a few bits from the local woolworths Definitely stay again if I needed too
