    The dinner was great so was the service

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    We liked the friendly atmosphere, the very comfortable bed, the good shower & the prompt delivery of breakfast delivered by a polite waiter. The location was good in relation to the shops. A stroll around the Ballarat shops is always worthwhile.

  • Single
    10.0

    Felt very safe there on my own, and the staff were very accommodating to my needs. My room had a lovely big spa bath, big flat screen tv, electric blanket, tea and coffee making facilities and the heater worked extremely well

    I wouldn't stay again on the ground floor of the back building, as I had someone walking heavily on the ceiling, and keeping me awake at night and up early in the morning

  • Older travelers

    The Barkly Motor lodge was very clean , staff very friendly and helpfull.The rooms were comfortable and the food was very good.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The Barkly was extremely close to the conference we were running and therefore ideal. It was clean and the set-up of the rooms was great with the 2 beds being separated rather than next to each other.

    We had intended to take equipment up to the room to complete things for the conference. The fact that our room was a long way from the carpark inhibited this, but we worked around it.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Rooms were good, staff polite and helpful.

    Finding it by a simple google map.

  • Single
    5.8

    I could easily walk to the main city shopping/eating district

    I could hear a LOT of street noise while in my room - including people talking on the street below. insulation was not great. One morning I left my wet towel on the bathroom floor for replacement and returned to my room later to find the same wet towel was hanging on the bathroom door and not replaced. The free WiFi internet kept dropping out so was not much use if a connection for a period of time was required to do any work

  • Couple
    5.8

    Showers worked well

    Heating didn't work, room was so noisy and rather dumpy - it didn't look anything like the pictures in the advertisement - we wouldn't stay there again

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    The telephone in the room was broken. There were no instructions for the TV, the Spa, the breakfast, I had to go downstairs 4 times and although we paid for the use of a spa ours didn't work..

  • Single
    7.0

    Rooms are not soundproof, and I could hear the people in the next room talking quite clearly. I was not comfortable with that.

  • Single
    6.2

    Comfortable and close to all the places I needed to be.

    Could smell cigarette smoke even though rooms were non smoking.

  • Couple
    10.0

    We really enjoyed staying. It was close tyo the facilities we wanted to go to and we also liked the spa.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Situated at a busy intersection,and a lot of road noise,as room situated next to footpath and road.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    I was very disappointed with the meal we had on Sunday night. My partner had the salt and pepper squid and I had the seafood platter with salad which I would rate as poor. The white wine could have been more chilled. We went to the North Briton Hotel on Saturday night to have dinner and quality of the meals were polls apart.
