I stayed a night at this hotel. It is very nice if you like the Victorian style decor for your room. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom clean and spacious and the general surrounding was very peaceful and nice. Well kept rose plants all outside the corridors to the rooms

The property was showing its age in most areas. It has seen better days. My allocated room was in a quiet area as requested but there was no allocated parking and as a result I had to park some distance away from the room. The room was much like the other motel facilities, it had seen better days. The furniture... More

Good setting with the rooms in clusters around outbuildings. We had a corner room which meant lots of light through extra windows. The room was spacious with a lovely bathroom. The weather was good for us but the proximity of the rooms to the restaurants could be a problem in bad weather. We had dinner and breakfast there. We had... More

Excellent personal service and attention at checkin while very professional. The room was very clean, comfortable, quiet and roomy. Plenty of choice at buffet breakfast. Checkout was again very friendly and professional. A few hours after leaving, the duty manager called to advise that they found some of our property in the room and would mail to us. Although we...

The room was very clean, very comfortable and totally fit for purpose. I enjoyed staying here. The conference facilities were of a very high order; staff service could not have been higher. Ballarat Lodge gets a definite 'recommend' from me. Sovereign Hill is a five minute walk, so for tourists the location is perfect. I could not access wi-fi from... More
