Room was very clean and spacious. Bathroom was spacious and very clean. Hosts were very helpful. Their knowledge of things to do and see in Ballarat was very helpful. Accommodation was far better than a lot of city accommodation. Would recommend wholeheartedly.

Thank you for your great feedback. We love our location opposite Sovereign Hill and the many restaurants within walking distance. Ballarat city centre is only a few minutes drive away from our peaceful location, and our friendly reception staff are more than happy to help you plan your day out. We hope you'll come back and visit us again soon. More

A separate bedroom off a large loungeroom made this stay almost like an apartment. Lots of space, a sofa, TV away from an external wall, kitchenette and huge ensuite. Located opposite "Sovereign Hill" and close to Eureka Stockade.

Stayed in two interconnecting rooms with our children during the school holidays. Rooms were incredibly spacious, modern and spotlessly clean. We stayed in the front rooms on the bottom floor, and it was very quiet. A surprising extra in the rooms was a good supply of crockery and cutlery and dishwashing liquid, cloth and tea towel. The location of the... More

This was our second stay and we could not have been more happy. The staff are lovely and very helpful, the rooms are fantastic and the cleanliness is first class. Sometimes a second visit can seem like a let down after the initial great experience, but this was every bit as good as the first...maybe even better!

Excellent motel, friendly staff, reasonably priced and walking distance to Sovereign Hill. Also an excellent Japanese restaurant just down the road. No problem checking in early. Heaps of hot water, good water pressure and large white fluffy towels. Would definitely stay here again.

The room was big and very clean. Big comfortable bed. Good amenities. Good heating which was appreciated as the weather was pretty bad. We were across the road from sovereign hill which was very convenient so we could walk there. I would highly recommend Best Western Ballarat and would be happy to stay there again.

Very friendly, good location near Sovereign Hill, Very clean except for a bit of gunk in the showers. Great heating on cold days. Only problem for me was the rock hard pillows and very firm mattress. Also, DONT order the Thai food in the room compendium from the local Thai restaurant. it is overpriced and absolute crap.

Bedding is a personal thing and overall our guests are very comfortable. We are sorry to hear that the pillows were too hard, however there are several others in the wardrobe and we are more than happy to organise for you to change rooms if required. Our friendly staff are only to happy to help. There are several restaurants within... More

Just completed a 9 night trip through Victoria and would have to rate the Best Western Ballarat as the best motel we stayed in. The staff were friendly and efficient, the room was clean and comfortable, with quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The motel was in a great location to see Ballarat's major attractions like Sovereign Hill and Eureka. Would... More
