2 Riley Street


VIC 3300

Budget on the Lake is a member of the Budget Motel Chain which means our standards are to provide clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation to our guests. Budget on the Lake is situated off the Glenelg Highway and overlooks Lake Hamilton. A quiet country setting helps for a restful night’s sleep. All rooms are equipped with microwaves, fridges, toasters and kettles. Enjoy our cooked meals, breakfast or continental breakfast and espresso coffees are delivered to your room!

The Ansett Museum is a short 5 minute from Budget on the Lake Motor Inn. Hamilton Victoria is the birthplace of the once great Ansett Transport Empire. Drop in to see memorabilia from the Ansett empire including uniforms, plane artefacts and a Boeing 727 wheel. 

Set up base at Budget on the Lake and visit the Byaduk Caves, less than 20-minute drive away. Long ago when Mount Napier volcano erupted, its lava flow solidified and created the Byaduk Caves. The sprawling underground chamber is 20 metres below the earth’s surface! 

One of Australia’s best regional galleries, the Hamilton Gallery, is a quick 5-minute drive away from Budget on a Lake Motor Inn. The Hamilton Gallery has a large collection of works, complemented with regular exhibitions.

Hamilton was Victoria’s first area of pastoral settlement, and today it remains the heartbeat of a thriving farming district. Nestled in a peaceful valley surrounded by rich grazing land, the regional city retains the feel of a grand old country town. Picturesque church spires, parks and gardens and historic stone buildings reflect a proud and prosperous wool growing heritage.

Budget Motel, Budget on the Lake Motor Inn looks forward to welcoming you!
