Would have to be one of the best motels I’ve stayed in. Beautiful clean, modern rooms, fantastic reception and staff. My son and I had adjoining rooms (so we both had our own space) but could still be together. His remark was that we should cone back yearly as Ararat is my place of birth...highly recommended p.

The room was really nicely renovated, very clean, comfy bed and undercover parking. The staff were very nice (and so were their 2 adorable little puppies), close to the main centre of town, quiet. Nothing to complain about at all, would definatley stay again.
