Stayed for 3 nights in 2 bedroom family suite. Hosts friendly upon check-in. Room was very small for 4, but beds were comfortable. Adequate blankets. Very cold in Ballarat at the time of our stay. Reverse cycle A/C stopped working after about 3 hours (luckily I packed a small fan heater), and room was very drafty through the window. No... More

I had two separate stays at this motel in one week - the first time in a double room, the second in an upgrade to a two-room apartment. Although the first room was in great need of a good dusting and a refit - cracked tiles being the main problem, plus tired furniture - the motel's location was ideal for... More

Has had a bad rap with previous owner but new owners are really doing it up. Fantastic service and comfortable clean room. Great pool and service. When the restaurant opens (very soon) it will be fantastic. Good luck guys you deserve all the best.

Ballarat was booked out but due to a last minute cancellation we managed to get a family apartment here. The apartment was so much bigger than we expected and we were very comfortable there. The kitchen is great when you don't want to be constantly buying take away. The laundry with sachets of laundry liquid was a bonus when travelling... More

My husband & step-son stayed here for one night in January 2014 and had a lovely time. They described the staff as extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable and my husband, whom has back trouble, stated that he even awoke feeling very refreshed and pain free! The bathroom actually included a spa... More

Room dated but seemed clean. Kids & I swam in the pool, tiles are chipped off in sections but it was warm & seemed to be maintained. Convenient location for us as it was easy to find after a long drive & right next door to the mini golf. The place was near empty so we didn't have neighbor guest... More

The rooms were dirty, as in filthy. We complained and the owner said she would fix the problem but she lied. All the dried food and hair and dirt remained. When I showed her again the putrid state of the room, after initially bald faced lying to me about who had caused the filth, she shrugged and said that you... More

Budget priced hospitable family accommodation. Recently sold after falling into receivership the apartments are dated, however they are very clean, comfortable and in clean and working order. On the highway into ballarat from melbourne they are only 5-10mins from the cbd. They are conveniently placed and are in a quiet location we were in a family unit and did not... More
