As far as hotel rooms go it was pretty average & seemed a bit cold and dated with the internal exposed brick. The toilet was in a very small space and felt uncomfortable. Shower was hot with good pressure. The highlight was the king size bed with comfy pillows. Checkin was seemless and service good but it was lacking atmosphere.... More

Stayed here two nights over a cold September weekend and was very happy with the room and especially the service. Beds firm but very comfortable. Room had microwave & kitchen sink. Ice cube trays were filled and freezer a good size for a medium stay. Shower had a handy grabrail - good. Onsite laundry facilities and parking right outside the... More

We had a family room, no complaints around $140. The bathroom was really nice, beds comfy and linen clean. We checked in ar 2130. That was no problems. The room had a microwave and some basic crockery and cutlery.

Starting with the good points: central location, easy to find, free wifi, comfy bed with clean linens. That's it, parking on site is awful, bathrooms and cleanliness are abysmal. Hair balls in amoungst "clean" towels. Grouting amateur job & mouldy. Streaks of a dubious nature on the walls in the bathroom. Toilet dirty/used & not cleaned on our arrival. Sinks... More

Im so glad we only stay here for one night! We had a family room which was not child friendly at all. The shower had mould in it, there was a slop in the shower which was too unsafe for my child to use, due to it being slippery. The empty complimentary shampoo and conditioner containers from the previous occupants... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Not that far from Ballarat station. We walked from ballarat station to here. Very nice location, friendly and helpful owner, beautiful room. It does have a microwave oven. Indian restaurants and a shopping Lane nearby. Loved it!

I chose this hotel as it offered the best deal for the 2 nights we wanted to be in Ballarat. Free car parking and a lovely guy at reception. The car park would be a bit squeezy if you have a big car, but I managed with my Mirage and there was a 4WD parked next to me. The website... More

We recently stayed at this motel having stayed once before some years ago, we chose it due to the comfort of the bed on the last visit, a good pillow top bed. Things have not changed, the bed was still as good as last time, we have travelled extensively & spent many nights in uncomfortable beds. the other thing I... More
