I am writing this on behalf of my Dad who is dying of cancer. He has stayed at this hotel a lot during his treatment in Ballarat and the consideration that he has been shown is nothing short of amazing. Kylie should be commended on the compassionate way Dad's bookings were handled and the level of customer service that has... More

Located right in the Ballarat CBD, you can't get a better location than this older style motel. Rooms are simply furnished and comfortable. Parking was fine and the area was very quiet with no traffic noise at all. Very reasonably priced motel.

We found the room just average. Absolutely no information in room whatsoever. Parking extremely poor, we had to move our car for another guest to get theirs out. Couldn't even find anything in room re getting a cab to our destination and as an inter-stater was not sure of proceedures there. Definitely would not stay there again.

This motel is very central, the rooms are large and clean, as are the en suites, breakfast was great and the dinning room has large windows overlooking the street scape. But the best is the staff all very helpful and friendly, will go back next time without hesitation.

The rooms are of adequate size. The hotel is located in the centre of Ballarat and easy to find. Close to the main shopping precinct and restaurants. Wonderful shower unfortunately the cleaner had forgotten to replace the soap and a half bottle of moisturiser was left in the room. Bed was comfortable. Air conditioner remote control took a bit of... More

The staff here were outstanding. Friendly and fast for service. The room was dated, clean and comfortable. However noisy. The noise of a fan, the noisy of the neighbours snoring and could hear the TV. Each time someone was in the car park for a smoke you could hear it. I would say value for money good, but the room...

This is a little pot of gold in the heart of a gold mining town. From the moment you pull into the driveway you are treated with the 1970s in all their glory. Everything about the lobby and entry embody the best of that era. From the gold framed doors to the wall water feature! Even the service! The girls... More

Maybe not the newest place in town but staff were friendly. Gave us fresh milk which is a bonus, however only 2 serves of coffee in the room. Good toiletry selection. Hated having to pay for a newspaper. Was almost at full occupancy but still not noisy. Bed comfortable and slept very well. Room clean. Close to city centre.

I stayed one night at this motel and firstly may I say it is in a top location so I thought $160 for a twin was ok when booking but that changed after the room was sighted. It looks like the last room update was just after the Eureka stockade uprising in 1854. The room we had was very tired... More

I stayed here with a group of people attending an Avatar course. We were all taken really good of in each of our rooms and in the conference room. My personal requests for help were met with willingness and care. It is a wonderful place to stay.
