We stayed in a Heritage room in Jul-08 & it cost $165 (£77) which imo is good value.
It was very easy to find following the signs to Sovereign Hill, it's just around the corner from the front gate.
I really liked the whole set up, the houses continued the feel of SH & wasn't just a generic hotel with cool rooms. To me it was a great introduction to the SH experience.
I must say though that except for learning the history behind it (which could be done though 5 min on the internet) I found "Blood on the southern cross" highly disappointing. I'm sure I'd loved it if I was 12 but as an adult with no kids in toe - snooooze.
The room was a pleasant surprise, it was big, I love the colours, the set up, the four poster bed (which was very comfy) - all lovely. I loved that the fridge, toaster etc was hidden.
The only thing I didn't like about the room was the appalling water pressure - by far the worst I've encountered in Australia.
It was a novel idea to have the breakfast in your room already & it suited us perfectly as we came in staving & had it as a very late lunch. We ordered an (almost) full English breakfast for lunch which came to our door exactly at the time we picked which was great.
It was a shame there was nowhere to eat there or to have a drink after a long drive. So we decided to ask the check-in staff & they were probably the least friendly I've encountered in Australia too - soul less & unhelpful. We were told that it was "impossible, as it was way too far to walk to town" which turned out to be untrue for a healthy adult as it took only 30min. It did surprise me though that for such a big tourist destination there were no pavements for the part of the walk nearest the hotel.
This makes it sound very negative but keep in mind I'm giving you background about the stay as a whole. I really liked the room & think it's great value.
& Sovereign Hill - well it's just fantastic.
