I sent my brother-in-law and partner here for a couple of days and they said it was very relaxing and the staff were very friendly. Thank you so much for giving them a great time away. They also said that they will be back.

We needed to stay overnight in Ballarat. The queen room was spacious, comfortable, clean, warm and quiet and the staff were friendly and helpful. The appliances worked and the table and chairs and toaster enabled us to make breakfast before we left in the morning. The wifi also worked well and had more than one log-in so we didn't have...

The staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was clean, fresh and comfortable, wi-fi was fast and easy to access. Having a table/chairs in the room was great. We didn't hear any noise from the room next door. Parking was easy. Will stay at Begonia again.

Our second time here and we'll be back next year. Hopefully during the summer so we can use the pool. A very comfy bed and very clean room. A quiet location too and very close to supermarket and all the good restaurants, KFC and MACCAS. :)
