We spent one night at the Bakery Hill Motel. The Location is great for visiting the local places of interest & walking distance to restaurants. Beds were large and comfortable, heating was good with large towels supplied. Allocated car parks are available close to rooms however they are small and require some manoeuvring to get in or out. The place... More

Great bed and good heating. Tv works well. The bathroom had dirt and dust around the toilet paper. The floor had dust and hair. The bin wasn't lined properly. The shopping bag used was just put there and not opened. In the kitchen, all there was were two cups, two saucers, two teaspoons. No plates, knives, forks or tea towels.... More

The Bakery Hill Motel is ideally suited for visiting the many and various tourist points. Whilst there we took the train from Ballarat to Melbourne, that was great, on time and clean and courteous staff. The motel's staff were most helpful we stayed in room 1 and it was better than other simular motels at this price range.

If you don't have too high expectations this location is ideal. Once you get your bearings this Motel is actually well located within walking distance to most eating places. About a 25min walk to the train station. The room itself was ok. The bed was large, our room was near the street so we got lots of noise from the... More

We had 2 rooms booked, one appeared to have had a bathroom renovation while the other was in very bad need of an upgrade. Staff were friendly and overall... More

For the price this motel offers very comfortable rooms indeed. Giant bed and a spacious room and everything was clean and tidy. Allocated parks per unit and the location is very handy. Proprietor is not over-the-top welcoming but is very happy to help with anything you need during your stay.

We only stayed one night but had a very comfortable stay. The king sized bed was enormous! The bathroom was a bit dated but the rest of the room had good facilities and was a pleasant place for an overnight stay. Walking distance to good restaurants and shopping in Ballarat.
