My partner and I decided to stay in Ballarat after the Rainbow Serpent Festival before driving home to Adelaide. We booked via Wotif and used the Mystery Hotel option so we had no idea what the location was going to be. It didn't really matter as we were just looking for a place to sleep but if we had been...

As a last minute decision we decided to stay without having a booking. The staff were very professional and helpful. The room itself was very neat and clean with the only negative being the shower taps which were poorly placed. The King bed was extremely comfortable and the buffet breakfast was delicious. This was an extremely enjoyable stay and as... More

We stayed overnight while in Ballarat visiting family. A gorgeous settings, clean rooms. Really comfy bed. It was a single room with king bed and bunks for the kids, ok but would have been nice to have separate rooms in a suite. Breakfast and service were terrific would stay again.

Lovely, quiet stay. Suitable for business or travel. Will not break budget. A bit out of town, but a great walk or short drive away. Opposite Ballarat's main tourist attraction. Great conference location in regional setting.

We stayed for 1 night and we can say that the place overall is relaxing. We enjoyed tinned roof verandas and antique, nostalgic looking furniture. Bathroom basin is wide, good for wide arms. Bed is awesome, soft and comfortable. The room does not have access to free wifi, fee is $9.95 for 1 day use or free in lobby for... More

A comfortable, clean, quiet and convenient place to stay with very nice KS bed, at a reasonable rate for the short stay in Ballarat. Being within walking distance to Sovereign Hill, was a plus. Recommend this.

We checked in around 6pm amd was met with an arrogant friendless receptionist who tried originally to overcharge us on our credit card (by abiut $100) and then proceeded to under charge us.
