As stated in the title. Not sure if it was quite worth the $150 we paid for the family room we rented, but it was okay. Not that close to the city centre though - next time I would probably try and find a more central hotel.

We booked our hotel on wotif but then had to change our dates. Both wotif and the motel were very accommodating and made the necessary changes during peak season(Easter) without us incurring any extra fees. The service is friendly and attentive (apparently the new owners took over the motel about 1.5 years ago) The hotel itself quite run down and... More

We stayed at the Gold Sovereign on 12 December 2012. It was TERRIBLE. There were spider webs, a rotten wall and to add insult to injury they charged more because we didn't use one of the big booking services. They have photos on the web of nicer updated rooms - beware, not all rooms have been updated! The airconditioning didn't... More

Like many others have said, this is a fairly standard motel, one that you would see anywhere in Australia. Its clean and comfortable. BUT, the service from the owner and his wife makes it special. I don't believe I have ever had such a friendly smile and such helpful service anywhere. We had dinner in their restaurant, cooked by the... More

What you would call an average Motel. What makes it stand out is wonderful service. Very helpful with information on the Ballarat area. The owners also cook for the Motel. As someone who follows food I can say their fried rice was the best we have every tasted. Very authentic ,highly recommend .

A fairly standard hotel but everything was clean and well presented. We understand that it was recently taken over so it may get even better. The best thing was the service, very friendly and helpful with information of the Ballarat area. The rooms were standard Motel level so all was good

Like most visitors to Ballarat, the Sovereign Hill is the main reason for tourist to venture here. Upon arrival it is easily dismissed as the quintessential motel found throughout Australia but that would be a disservice. The friendly owners make it happen. For $160 you can scoop up a family room for 4 people which is a great budget priced... More

Its a good country side Motor Inn... I really enjoy it... The environment is exactly nice.. If you like to know how Australian house look like, I think this is a good Motor Inn to represent it... Their parking space is even much...

In addition to various, poorly done signs stuck to the walls describing the dos and don'ts of staying there, we were given a room with wet carpet due o an urgent clean up. The next morning we found out there were plenty of other rooms available that had dry carpet! We thought we were given the last room! How strange.... More
