Our family of four stayed here 2 nights with my sisters family of four in the first week of July. Lovely friendly owners made you feel welcome and the complimentary muffin and small carton of milk was just what was needed to settle in and make a nice cup of coffee after travelling for a couple of hours. We had room 7 which was futherest away from the main road and had no problem with noise, the room itself was spotless, the bathroom the same and the showers nice and hot and the pressure was great.The room was equipped with the usual tea & coffee facilities and a microwave.The motel has free wifi in all rooms which the kids used to keep in touch with friends. Being in the middle of winter and having 11 and 12 degrees days during our stay my wife immediately turned on the heating in the room and it kept us cosy and warm, the beds are equipped with electric blankets but we found the beds were nice and warm anyway. You are only a short walk to Sebastopol bowls club Coles supermarket and a couple of take away shops but we decided to drive 10 min into ballarat for dinner. Sunday is our traditional eggs and bacon day so we had the cooked breakfast, we had scrambled eggs and bacon and I had mushrooms with mine, YUM!!! I think the proof was in the empty plates. The kids loved the option of having the bacon crispy. Would not hesitate to recommend the begonia to anyone. Will definitely stay here again. Thank you to Karen And Jim, the house keeping staff and Pepper the dog for a most pleasant stay.
