Lovely warm room with an old-fashioned style. Continental breakfast was AMAZING! It filled my fifteen year old son to the max! Friendly and helpful staff. We didn't want for anything and it was great access to Sovereign Hill. I would highly recommend the package, the only way to stay.

We chose this motel because of its reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not let down. The facilities are excellent, the rooms spotless and the staff very friendly and helpful. It was quiet and we will not hesitate to stay there again.

The room was great with a small balcony. Interior was nice, comfortable and contained everything we needed, including a spacious bathroom. Also the location is good close to restaurants and bars. We expected a pool and chose this particular hotel because of their pool, but it was closed because it wasn't heated. We were told it could be ready in... More

Hi Heidi, As you requested we did actually warm the pool. When heating the pool we do not take the cover off. Also due to safety reasons we can't leave the door to the pool open and that's why people need to come to the office to ask to get into the pool. We are glad you enjoyed the room... More

A truly wonderful stay. Cosy and warm during the cold Ballarat night. Bathroom was really set out and spacious. Well suited for a family. Very quiet room right at the front of the motel. Excellent position close to restaurants and shopping.
