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

Lovely room and renovated bathroom. Good lighting for reading in bed. Excellent airconditioner. Plenty of hot water, nice towels. Our room had a queen size double bed and a single bed which we didn't use. Very clean and very quiet. The lady at reception when we arrived was very friendly and helpful. You can park on the property or on... More

Stayed here for a couple nights while setting up a new store in town which was only a few minutes walk away. The room I stayed in was neat, very clean and they had great soft towels to use. The man who helped us book the rooms was very helpful and always did a little bit extra - coming up... More
