“Great Little Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Stayed here for a night as we were going to Sovereign Hill and I must say it was very pleasant. Rooms were clean and all bare necessities included. Service by staff exceptional as nothing was too much trouble. Free Wi-Fi a bonus. Recommended and would come back!

Stayed December 2014

My wife, 1 year old son and myself went to Seymours on Lydiard for a weekend getaway. First impressions were that it looked like a nice, neat but older style motel. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the door to our room to find a completely revovated, modern room with great facilities. Even with a 1 year old our stay was so comfortable. The owners had even set up a portacot for us.

Location was awesome aswell. Walking distance to the ballarat CBD, but in a nice quiet location. The attached pub was also a really great place to grab something to eat. Not a party pub, just great food, good prices and friendly staff.

All in all we had a fantastic weekend away, and would definitely recommend them.

We stayed in Deluxe room number 4 for two nights recently and were very pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of this room. Everything is very clean and feels more like a classy holiday apartment than a motel room. The hotel attached, is a charming 1850's classic with several areas to accommodate groups looking for various ambience. The upstairs verandah overlooking the streets of Ballarat was our favourite. We had a few meals during our stay and all were very yummy and reasonably priced. The staff in both the motel section and the hotel were very helpful and friendly beyond the call of duty. Summing up, we'll definitely be back and can highly recommend.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms were large with lounge area and the bathroom has a spa.

The reception staff were friendly and helpful upon arrival. We stayed in the large house as a team getaway, it was amazing. So roomy, the rooms were neat, tidy and clean. The kitchen facilities were fantastic, the bathroom was awesome, especially the double shower and huge spa. There were 2 toilets which was great with a large group. Overall it was such a comfortable style of accomodation.

Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Wonderful customer service. Rooms are well laid out and very clean. My daughter and I had a very enjoyable stay overnight and she absolutely loved the spa bath.There was also secured parking available onsite. The hotel itself is situated in an ideal spot approx 5 mins from the city centre.

First impression of hotel from outside may put you off, but once inside your opinion will change.
The rooms were spacious and bright and modern
We would stay again if the opportunity arose again, we hope to come back.

Room Tip: Ask for upgrade it doesn't hurt.

Checking in was quick and easy .
Management/owner polite and helpful
Rooms large and spacious .
Six ladies in room 7, with kitchen amenities. Was like staying in apartment more than a hotel .
Meals can be delivered to your room or eat in the hotel attached to the rooms
All six meals came quickly and were all delicious .
Close to train station and not far from town centre .
Will definetly book this place again and recommend to family and friends .

Room Tip: Plenty of choices for room size accomm.
