Thank you for your feedback - delighted to read that you found our rooms spacious and comfortable and in particular warm & cosy over the chilly Ballarat winter. Also we were pleased we were able to assist your father with his meals due to him being unwell at the time. Kind regards Neil Robbins Manager
