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. :)

Whole stay was a pleasure. Right from Jim's warm & friendly welcome to the very clean and comfortable accommodation. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment, (5 adults eg my wife & I and our 3 adult children) and space was fine and all beds were really good. Will stay here again. There was also access to 3 wi-fi ports... More

We have just spent 11 nights at the Begonia and would recommend it to everyone. The hosts Jim and Karen were lovely, helpful and very courteous. The room we had was a Queen Twin. It was clean,spacious and very well appointed. Glad we stayed just outside of Ballarat, although it was still only minutes away from all attractions anyway. It... More

We arrived after a long drive and booked on the road because of TripAdvisor ratings.With a warm welcome were told that we had a spa room but it cost a little more if we choose to use spa . Breakfast was excellent and on time.Room was clean,spacious and smelled nice.

Hi Debbie, Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your stay at Begonia City Motor Inn. Sorry that we couldn't offer complimentary use of the spa particularly after such a long drive. There are a few factors of why we don't including that it would be unfair to those who are paying extra for a spa and... More

This is our second stay, our first being in a family apartment. This time it was just my young son & I, and it was great to see the consistency across the different room types.

Fantastic place to stay! Would stay again. The staff were cheerful and helpful and the place was very clean. Only thing I would change are the shower heads. Not a very good shower to wash children in or yourself. Apart from that was fantastic! Will be back.

Very accommodating and friendly. Welcomed us with a smile at reception. Prior to arrival checked how we wanted the appartments set up for sleeping arrangements. Shame the weather was wet and cold - the pool looked inviting.
