Carpet not clean, hand basin has a scum film, no fly screen in toilet / bathroom so blow flies came into room. Slide up windows in lounge wouldnt... More

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.

Drains in room smelled like septic, bathroom looked tired and grubby with mould on tiles, furniture and carpet in room damaged and worn out and outside area needed a good clean and some tlc. Won't be... More

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

Stayed here for one night and needed a late check in and check out. No issue with either and late check out out is standard. Lovely room, great king size bed and extra large pillows. Really nice bathroom and good water pressure in the shower. We were very happy. Only downside was the noise due to the roundabout outside our... More

We stayed in a king bed room . It was spacious and very comfortable with the main part recently renovated. The bathroom was old but functional with a good shower. Although this motel is located at a fairly busy intersection it was very quite. It is very well located with easy walking distance to lots of cafes restaurants and shops... More

Spacious old rooms (clean) with modern, refurbished bathrooms. Perfect location on the edge of the CBD, short walk from cafes, restaurants, pubs and fast food. 2min drive to Sovereign Hill. One minor negative is access - steep stairs to the family rooms on level one, and VERY tight car parking, but overall very good.
