This is a fantastic little motel. Wonderful, homely service. I even received a text message the morning I was booked in with address for the GPS. Lovely, warm, cosy rooms. Comfortable bed and pillows. Had everything I needed ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š will be staying again next time in Ballarat.

We stayed here for four nights over Easter. It was clean and comfortable. The lady who checked us in was friendly and helpful. I was pleased to get a small bottle of milk, rather than UHT. The room rate was very good, much lower than most places in Ballarat. I was pleased that I could open the bathroom window, to... More

Excellent facilities, well priced. Would have been perfect except for the bed. It was terrible! One of the most uncomfortable beds we have ever slept in. We were there for both Friday and Saturday night. It was so bad we tried to get other accommodation on the Saturday night but everywhere in Ballarat was booked out. Such a shame because... More

Good central location on historic Bakery Hill. The motel is close to restaurants and fast food outlets and an easy walk to main mall and city centre. A very spacious room with plenty of storage for clothes, wardrobe, drawers including a suitcase shelf, a good sized desk with desk light. A most comfortable queen size bed, with two side tables...

We stayed two nights. The place is clean and tidy and, although it is on the main road into town, it was very peaceful. Ideal for a visit to Sovereign Hill (about a 10 minute drive) and also the shops and restaurants of central Ballarat (about 3 minutes to walk into the town centre) Didn't try the breakfast ordering system...

Myself and the family had a great time staying here. Rooms were clean, and nice size. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It was walking distance to shops which was great with having the kids. We will definitly be coming back here on our next visit to Ballarat.

This motel is in a great position and the rooms are clean and well appointed. I think it must have been renovated recently because everything seems nice and new. We did not have the breakfast so I cannot comment on that but I would recommend this motel for anyone taking a trip to Ballarat.

overall the motel was good. rooms need to be brighter but was good being central to the shops and cuisine. the only downside was car hoons rolling around until 1am on a week night. id recommend a sound proof wall outside or get the police to police that area more at night

We were pleasantly surprised by how modern and clean the room was. The bed was super comfy and not a floral bedspread in sight! The mini bar is well stocked and reasonably priced. We were greeted by friendly staff. It was full house on a busy festival weekend and we didn't hear a sound from other rooms. The balcony out... More
