Matilda cabins were good - just large enough to invite another family over. Cabins were reasonably quiet as not close to highway, and heating was great. Even though it was very cold and raining, there was enough to do in the heated pool and spa. Large games room with table tennis and pool were great for kids. Short drive to... More

Myself and my 2 young daughters stayed at the Big 4 Ballarat Windmill Park last week and we were very impressed. It wasn't far out of Ballarat city centre. We were greeted by lovely staff who walked us to our Swagman 2 bedroom cabin which was lovely and spotlessly clean with the heater on for us. Perfect for what we... More

On a recent trip to Ballarat we stayed in a two bed room unit - sleeping 2 Adults & 4 children. From the moment we walked into the park we were well looked after and the check in was very informative about local attractions and to do information. The unit was very well presented, had the highest standard of cleanliness... More

Upon a friendly arrival, we were shown to our 'Matilda' Cabin. All seemed satisfactory as we entered. Unfortunately, it was one of THOSE days where anything and everything went wrong. The staff tried their best to fix the problems but we were very disappointed how our 4 day holiday had started. Our first night was not the best. Next day... More

We stayed in the Matilda Cabin recently, the Cabin was nice & clean, everything worked perfectly. Due to the sudden cold snap, we more or less had the heater on all day every day & well into the evening - it did not miss a beat! Electric blankets worked wonders at night, keeping us toasty warm. The pool, well the... More

Dear JimandMariaMelbourne Thank you for your glowing review. We really appreciate it. It really has been the coldest week or so that we have experienced according to the bureau. I’m pleased your heating didn’t succumb to the dreaded intense cold and freeze the exterior of the unit. How good is our pool? It is actually open every day of the... More

Dear cheezels1985 Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that your first night of your 4 night stay did not meet your expectations – it was one of the coldest evenings since Ballarat has been recording temperatures, which certainly wouldn’t have helped. While I appreciate there were a couple of minor issues to begin with (which were all attended... More

Just returned from a weekend getaway staying in a Banksia Unit for two nights. Coming from the Hospitality industry it is easy to be critical and your expectation is always high. From the moment we stepped into reception it was very clear we had made a very wise decision. Arriving early we were greeted with an extremely pleasant and informative... More

We had a wonderful stay. Close enough to all the attractions but out of town for quiet rest. The kids loved all of the facilities, especially the games room, jumping pillow and, of course, the indoor pool. Lovely staff topped off a great holiday.
