Tranquility Cottage is a 3 bedroom house, with everything you could need, in the suburbs of Ballarat. It is in a convenient location for access to all this beautiful city has to offer. The house itself shares a block of land with the owners residence, another granny flat at the back and a remedial masseur who works out of a... More

Facilities are not as described. The sauna/spa is really only a bath with a slight current. Control panels are covered so cannot use any of the features of the spa unit. Sauna does not work. Mould around top of spa that could be scraped off with a fingernail. I had to clean it before we could use it. The second... More

We are so sorry you had a problem and did not receive any complaint or note to advise us of any problem at the time and the first we knew of any problem was when it went global on Trip Advisor. The small bath/spa is for children and the big double spa and sauna unit described as a Jacuzzi? -... More

We called impromptu as we were travelling through ballarat and decided to stay the night. Jenny happily accommodated our family of 4. Arrived after 7 pm so too late to get breakfast included. Heater and aromatherapy oils were on ready for our arrival. Furnishing is very comfortable albeit not modern (lots of pink and flowers). Plenty of space, 2 Spa... More

I almost hate to tell people about this slice of paradise on earth, because I don't want it to be booked up all the time. I have been twice and will go again at the earliest opportunity. Jennifer, the owner, is a brilliant and caring naturopath and nurse, but also a wonderful human being. The attention to detail is amazing.... More

We drove up from Melbourne and arrived quite early,so the owner left the keys under the door mat so we could get in.They had left a bread machine on timer so we arrived to the smell of freshly baked bread...mmmm.....love that smell!

‘I have stayed three times at Tranquility and found the owners helpful and kind. The facilities are unique, with massage chair and vibrating beds, spa and sauna and log fire and the rooms were very clean and well cared for.”

Bizarre owner extremely difficult to deal with. The behavior was at times very funny if it wasn't for the fact that we were paying for the so called 'therapeutic' treatments in the small tacky shed in a pensioners back yard.

The photos on our web show 4 1/2 star quality - our Treatment rooms contain expensive Aqua Massage machines, oxygen therapy, pedic spa chairs and electric heated massage chairs and vibrating niagra therapy couches. Difficult to please all the people all the time. Nurse/Natupropathic qualifications and Health Fund and Workcover rebates. More
