The first impression is important. Lovely friendly check in. Opened the room and its so old small and outdated but comfortable. Indoor pool and 20m to a restaurant these are pluses. Its late afternoon and the highway traffic is so continues.

Firstly, the rates for this accommodation is excellent. As a family of 5, we couldn't do any better $$$ wise. A single storey complex, the location is an easy drive from Ballarat CBD next to a mini golf centre, antique mill market, attached restaurant, Coles Petrol station and diner. Greeted by very friendly staff, the room was clean and comfortable... More

Even though the room needed updating, the beds and pillows were comfortable. The heater worked well, usual amenities for a hotel to offer, free wifi and a free 24hr movie channel. Easy walk to a convenient store and The Mill market.

Host was lovely, friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to the 2 bedroom apartment. Had everything we needed for our family stay. Rooms were very clean, linen towels etc were crisp and clean. Kitchen was fully self contained and had tea coffee etc. TV in each room. Shower was nice. We will be staying in the future.

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 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
