We just stayed one night at the Comfort Inn at Sovereign Hill. It was different than any other hotel we stayed at in our five weeks of travel Down Under. For starters the inn is several buildings spread over the top of the hill overlooking the Sovereign Hill historical site. To get to our room we had to pull our... More

With the words 'comfort inn' I was expecting a 1960 country town motel. It couldn't have been further from my expectations. Walking into a warmed room on a typical Ballarat evening was a pleasant start. A king size bed awaited, nicely appointed bathroom and plunger coffee to finish the evening. OMG the best buffet breakfast was waiting for us next... More

We stayed in a family suite, and after visiting Beechworth jail there are a lot of similarities. Bathroom was dirty with dust laden cobwebs, the tap leaked and the door was squeeky, this was promptly wd40 by reception. The bunks have chewing gun stuck up the top bunk and graffiti everywhere. The bedside table has lost its varnish and you... More

We did the couples package, which included accommodation in a standard room, a devonshire tea, two-day entry to Sovereign Hill, an underground mine tour and entry to the gold museum. The package was definitely worthwhile. The room was well kitted-out and very clean. Breakfast was great - small plates of different combinations of eggs, spinach, mushrooms, etc. The devonshire tea... More

Lovely town. One of the rudest receptionists we have ever met. No chairs or desk in the room. We paid motel prices for what was basicly a fairly grubby hostel room for 6. No plates or cutlery to use. Bed sagged in the middle so poor sleep. Quite unimpressed with the place.

My son and I stayed in room 50 overlooking Sovereign Hill itself! The room was above standard with all the things one would require for a comfortable stay. The got access directly into Sovereign Hill via the special 'green' door which was very handy. We also went to the lighting and sound show which was very good. It was raining... More
