Located a short drive from the city centre of Ballarat and a short drive from Sovereign Hill. This B&B was presented immaculately, we were greeted by Ingrid who was very welcoming, her recommendations for dinner were great, we decided to try Oscars Hotel, which had very good service, its not flash. Compared to the other B&B we stayed in at... More

Located out of the city centre this was a lovely quiet B&B not too far from Sovereign Hill. The rooms were spotless and the furnishings very comfortable. The bedroom and ensuite were quite spacious with a walk in wardrobe that was great space for the suitcases. The guest lounge and breakfast area was a lovely place to relax after a... More

A great B&B located in a quiet residential area ensuring a great nights rest with none of the noise associated with a city location. We congratulate Ingrid on her set up of the B&B. It has everything that one would want when staying in a private residence. From here there is easy access to the city and surrounding attractions. One... More

This B&B, although a little outside of Ballarat, is immaculate. It is modern so do not look for historical ambiance. It is in a new residential area, but Ingrid, our host, is pleasant and attentive and keeps the rooms absolutely pristine. You have very easy access to Ballarat and its attractions and it is also very near Sovereign Hill. The... More

Thank you Thomas for your review. We noticed that you were very interested in the historical buildings of Ballarat. We certainly have them here and more! Although we are not in the center of Ballarat, we are still within the city limits, not outside as you suggested. As it only takes 6 minutes to get to the Town Hall from... More

We have just stayed 3 nights. We wanted a quiet place not too far from Melbourne. This was certainly it. The bedrooms, and indeed the lounge and breakfast area very comfortable, very clean and they were that way throughout our stay. Breakfast was delicious and Ingrid is very attentive. We definatley recommend this B & B.

The couple who run this do it very well. Clean, comfortable - no problems. The only downside is that a housing estate has grown around them, so it doesn't look so nice during the day. However, as we were out and about during the days we stayed there, this did not cause us any concern - and we would recommend... More

Thank you for your review. We are surprised to read that you thought our B&B did not look nice in the daytime. Most guests love the setting and our beautiful garden, but I guess we all look at things differently. We liked the fact that you enjoyed your stay, and we remember that you enjoyed the fishing at a farm... More

Very clean, very comfortable and well set up, good breakfasts and helpful owner. I did think that it is important to know that we had a car and could get there easily but it is a 5 minute drive from the City Centre, it is not walking distance

Thank you for your review. We liked having you stay with us. Although we are not in the CBD, we are not too far from the center of town. As 99.9% of our guest travel by car, we find that it is not an issue. The lovely views and the quiet area makes up for not being in the heart... More

My friends and I went to Ballarat for the annual Ballarat Autumn Day ride. Having stayed at more than a few bed and breakfasts in recent years I was cautiously optimistic. Hesitation vanished upon arrival. We found the rooms to be immaculate and very comfortable with enormous king-size beds, generous pillows, lovely crisp sheets and a feeling that everything was...

Thank you Doug for your review. We often have groups stay at Canadian Lodge. It means friends can get together in the shared lounge facilities when they want to, and have some "time out" in their own private room as well. Ballarat's Autumn Day ride is a favorite amongst cyclists, and provides a great cycling opportunity in Victoria's county side.... More
