Having stayed here before I knew what to expect, and once again the staff were friendly and helpful, the room clean and comfortable, and the buffet breakfast top notch. Although at breakfast staff were a little slow in replenishing items that were gone we found the experience of staying on-site at Sovereign Hill a rewarding one, and would recommend it... More

Thank you for the great feedback. Always delighted to welcome back return guests. The Christmas in July program in Sovereign Hill this year was a huge success. The hotel was operating at total capacity (which may explain your comment about the breakfast buffet) so it was gratifying to know that overall we maintained our high level of hospitality and service....

Lovey rooms, huge radiator heaters inside room, big rooms (did not have a cat to test but if I had one could definitely have swung one!), nicely heated bathrooms; had two rooms - one for my husband and me, one for my father. Both rooms... More

Thank you for your feedback - delighted to read that you found our rooms spacious and comfortable and in particular warm & cosy over the chilly Ballarat winter. Also we were pleased we were able to assist your father with his meals due to him being unwell at the time. Kind regards Neil Robbins Manager More

Arrived early and was able to check in. Staff were very friendly and room was very nice - warm and cosy!! Best part was being on the door step of Sovereign Hill. We could easily explore and come back for a rest whenever we wanted. Will def stay again!!

Thanks for posting Davyth - I'm glad you were cosy and well fed by our wonderful staff. We do offer a wine purchase option but only during reception hours. I hope the walk to the pub didn't prove too cold! Merry Xmas in July More
