Room is clean. Bathroom is clean and my girls loved the remodeled bathrooms. The only thing I can say is the hotel needs new towels. Two wore torn on the... More

Friendly and helpful staff. The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in at a hotel or motel. As I was going to be at a sporting event all day until late at night, I was able to check in early and collect the key to our room which was very convenient. Staff also offered to store our luggage for... More

This hotel is very conveniently located. You can go shopping or have dinner without using your car. room service was prompt and pleasant. Although some parking lots are not wide enough, you could park your car anyway.

Tripadvisor needs a slightly different rating system. This place was better than average but not "very good", just good. Rooms were nicely furnished and quite spacious, and clean. The location is excellent - across the road from Ballarat's main restaurant strip. The bed was huge and comfortable...but I just don't get triple sheeting. I particularly don't get triple sheeting in... More

Convenient Motel Quiet and clean. Friendly staff. Near to most of the attractions in Ballarat. Walking distance to restaurants and the rooms are spacious with plenty of tea and coffee. a bit more tourist brochures would be good

We stayed here over Christmas 2014. Room was spacious, with a small kitchen area. Very clean and tidy. The bed was fabulous, so comfy! We had no problem with our bathroom, fit for purpose. Great location, short walk into the centre. Would recommend to anyone.

I stay here often when travelling to and through Ballarat. The rooms are spacious and the King Beds are very comfortable. As other reviewers have stated, and dependant on which room you get, some of the bathrooms are bit old but they're more than adequate Kevin, the owner, although new to the business is helpful and accommodating. Bakery Hill is... More
