I normally stay here for business. Andrew & Deb are fantastic and their team at The Bell Tower Inn provide a friendly, comfortable, clean and relaxing place to stay whilst I am away from home. The pool and sauna let me unwind after busy days. Spacious quiet rooms and good food from Lazy Mo's. A great place to stay

I normally stay here for business, rooms are a bit dated but comfortable. Owners are always quite welcoming. Room service is serviced by Lazy Moes which can be quite filling, if staying with family order 1 meal between 2 people. Plenty of parking, indoor pool not far from middle of town.

Andrew and Deb are absolutely fabulous. We recently held a function at the Bell Tower Inn which saw us utilise the pool and also a function room... The pool and facilities were crystal clean, the conference room we used later in our function was set up perfectly and the catering of the food was bang on! I simply cannot rate... More

Our room was spacious & comfortable but could do with some TLC. The carpet was pretty worn & the bathroom door could definitely do with a coat of paint. The bed was comfortable & there was absolutely no noise to worry about. The bathroom could definitely do with some sort of heating. The staff were friendly & helpful.

We stayed for a night in room 32 which was very nice. Clean and comfortable with a very large bath. Friendly staff and easy check inn. Not in the middle of Ballarat but very easy access to the town. Golf club close by.

A nice cosy place for families. The shower had mould in the grout but overall the bathroom was very modern and large. The rooms weren't modern but had a good heater and an extra wool lined blanket which was great in the winter. Free Wifi was handy and outlook from my room was nice (onto a central lawn).

On arrival at the Queen Room I went to the bathroom only to find a huge poo that was lying in the toilet!
