Great place to stay right near Sovereign Hill. Out of the city enough for quiet night's sleep but close enough to make everything accessible. Loved the fact that the room had the heaters in when we got in on a cold and wet night and that the family room was spacious and very comfortable.

The manager of this hotel was extremely accommodating when the room wifi wasn't working and when the meal wasn't as 'well done' as we would have liked. He was extremely fair when compensating for these 2 inconveniences.

Had a great time staying at Comfort Inn Main Lead. We found the hotel very enjoyable, the rooms had very comfortable beds and pillows and there were extra blankets in the cupboard. The rooms were clean and warm. We travelled with 2 adults and 2 kids and it was a great room for a family. The kids really enjoyed the... More

We got a family special where kids stay for free. Heated pool was great on a cold winters day. Room was clean and tidy. Could hear a lot of noise of people talking and walking outside from within the room. Bathroom really let the place down. Paint in shower was chipped and the last guest's dental floss hanging in the... More

Recently stayed for two nights. Had booked a family room but our reservation was mucked up. Instead was given two large rooms next to each other but not interconnecting. It was fine. Rooms were large and comfortable and it was quiet at the back of the building. The pool was great and the kids loved it and the spa. Overall... More

My daughter and I stayed at Comfort Inn Main Lead and we absolutely loved it! From the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave, the service is wonderful. My daughter was very quick to try out the pool and spa and had a ball. The room was large and it even has a table and chairs... More

Probably a great place to stay if visiting Sovereign Hill, but not quite what I hoped for on a Ballarat business trip. The first two of my three-night stay were noisy, with the air conditioner in my unit and the one next door running constantly - we were told the carpets had been washed and needed to dry. Fitting were... More

This is located in a very convenient location as it's only a short walk to sovereign hill. The gentlemen at the front desk was very friendly. However the room was looking a little tired and there were a few gripes that i had during our stay. Upon entering the room we found what we assumed to be the table and... More

Found this to be very basic accom for the price bracket. Wouldn't recommend. Very cold with bare brick walls. Aircon loud making it hard to sleep. Shower has loose tiles & bad pressure. Side lamps didn't turn on. Pillows hard & flat, bed lumpy & uncomfortable. Tap in sink sprays water in all directions bar the sink. Lady at front... More

Handily situated about 1.5 ks from Sovereign Hill and about the same from the Ballarat CBD. Very reasonably priced motel, the room is spacious and main bed was very comfy but things looked a bit "tired". The bathroom was also showing signs of wear and tear. Staff were friendly and helpful. All in all it's worth an overnight stay and... More
