I stayed here for five nights on a recent business trip. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable and, despite the Main Rd location, very quiet. In the restaurant, the chef was able to modify many things on the menu to make them gluten-free for me and I had an absolutely delicious piece of salmon with fresh... More

Ballarat Lodge was the perfect place for our club event. Large enough to take 15 or more couples plus an exclusive room for our special dinner. Rooms very comfortable, woodland gardens looked good [altho inclement weather and other activities took over so we didn't have time]. Staff were very pleasant and breakfast excellent, with much fresh fruit to choose from... More

Recently spent one night at the Ballarat Lodge whilst visiting family on the Ballarat outskirts. Check-in was fast and seamless, the room was well-furnished and more 'classy' looking than many other hotels I have visited in the area. Lovely stay and will definitely come back for a longer visit next time we're coming to Ballarat.

I was working through Victoria as I usually do each month and have stayed here previously with a pleasant experience. I spend a lot of time travelling from motel room to motel room for work and from now on whenever I'min the Ballarat area I will only stay here as it feels so homely. The grounds around the property are... More

The room was ok, bed nice, and the surrounds excellent. The shower needed updating. One senior female staff member got me offside by complaining about something for which I had no responsibility. Otherwise I would have rated 4. Meal service was adequate. The location is good if going to Sovereign Hill and the city is easy to access.

Our family stayed here while I was in the area on business and found everything about the hotel was excellent. Beautiful gardens, a wonderful dinner with local produce and wines on offer, and friendly helpful staff. I stayed here a year ago and it was OK, but was really impressed with recent improvements. Highly recommended for overall good value

Stayed at this motel for a Conference which was being held there over 2 days, Really enjoyed the atmosphere of the motel, with its lush gardens Especially liked the restaurant where I had the best Steak I have ever eaten. It was thick but so tender and tasty, you could cut it with a spoon. My friends were also amazed... More

We had the opportunity to stay at this property a couple of times within a few months. Whilst one earlier stay had failed to meet our expectation, this latter stay reflected the quality we had encountered over previous years. A comfortable and well presented property and room, generous buffet breakfast, beautiful grounds, and pleasant staff. An extremely convenient location to... More
