We were up for a night and was less than satisfied, the bed was like sleeping on a hard plank or surf board as I like to put it, we had to use the doonahs as padding to get some rest. To add to this the air-conditioning had a loud to humming noise like a Harley Davidson taking off so... More

My girlfriend and I planned a trip to the the Christmas in July Winter Wonderland show at Sovereign Hill and were disappointed with our time spent at the Ballarat Colonial Motor Inn. We stayed over the weekend and despite other apartments being serviced ours were not. When we checked in on Saturday we were promised that our apartment would be... More

We had a two bedroom apartment which fitted our family of 5 perfectly. A room for the kids and a room for us which were both equipped with a heater that was needed as it snowed! The apartment had a good, clean kitchen with a dishwasher which made my holiday even better...no dishes! Also had a washing machine and dryer... More

We went to the Wonderlights festival at Sovereign Hill and needed some overnight accommodation. These apartments were the cheapest on offer that had a separate bedroom. The staff were lovely and helpful on check in, they had even turned the heater on to warm the room before our arrival. The apartment itself was older style and in need of repair... More

The motel was on he main highway, but noise could no be heard from our room. Clean, comfortable. We had Dinner at the Pizza place, kids were welcomed with colouring activities. We had a rough start to our trip and we were delayed a day, and whilst they couldn't accommodate a refund they did allow us to arrive a day... More

This was a very clean and comfortable stay. Rooms well stocked and queen sized bed was excellent. The two downsides was it was very near the highway and traffic although not loud enough to keep us awake was continuous throughout the night. Pizza place next door was a good place to eat. The motel supplied all the crockery and microwave... More

Small room. I can't begin to describe the smell when we first open the door. It's cold, like really cold. Not enough pillows, doona too light with only 1 light blanket in an old wooden cupboard. Bathroom has tiles falling to bits in it, tiny tiny tiny. No fan. Hooks on walls with no pictures hanging. Dirty stained cream carpet.... More

First of all, I would love to say a big thank you to the management for accommodating us for an extra night and upgrading our room so that we wouldn't have to move rooms the day. They were very helpful and the staff upon arrival was very pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately, that is where it ended. The room was very... More

The room was noisy, mound in the bathroom. Dingy bathroom, broken tiles in the bathroom, screws left in the shower recess, hot water cuts in and out, Carpets not clean, bed uncomfortable. Could not advise anyone to stay in this motel, I would rate it at One Star and that is exaggerating.

Room not clean cobwebs, dust an spills from previous guests. Mold stains on bedding. Bathroom had mold broken tiles and no fan. Knobs on heater were broken so unable to change temp. Pool was ok but lots of tiles missing the whole place needs a good scrub.
