“Family Friendly”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

5 tired and grumpy travellers arrive by car from Adelaide, greeted warmly by Big Jim, muffins and real milk at the ready, together with a great sense of humour and a real interest in guest comfort. Self contained facilities are excellent for the family, TVs, Foxtel, Heating, and showers that pump out the hot water. Free wifi was a great hit with the family's collection of 'i' devices. Very quiet location but only minutes to the main street or attractions of Ballarat. Excellent value and Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The family room (end unit) worked well for us and the other guests :)

Very roomy and comfortable - great bed, even greater shower. Everything was clean and nicely presented. As advised, the air cons. are in the process of being replaced with inverter types - will make a BIG difference to temp. control.

This was my second stay at the Begonia and what can I say.... thank you doesn't seem to be enough. Room was immaculate and the chocolate on the pillows were a lovely touch. From check in to check out, everything was so easy and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Noise was minimal and I was in a different room that closer to the highway this time. Heating was perfect for the cold night on Saturday night and it didn't take long for the room to heat comfortably.

The Begonia is a family-friendly motel, closely located to grocery stores, takeaway shops, as well as couple of really great restaurants. Everything at your fingertips is the best way to travel. I think the Begonia will be my "regular" stop for when I visit Ballarat. Thanks Karen and Jim for everything!

Room Tip: All rooms are very well equipped and road noise is minimal.

Greeted by exceptionally friendly staff completely focused on great customer service. The room with spa was immaculately clean and exactly what the pictures depicted. There was everything we needed; free Wi-Fi, Foxtel, tea and coffee facilities, wine glasses, champagne glasses already chilled? Our stay was absolutely wonderful and we would definitely stay here again on our next visit!

Clean, friendly and with all the facilities you need. We had a great stay here. It is good value for money and did what it said on the tin! Would stay here again. It is not central but this is clear for the website. There are good transport links and if you have a car it's a no brainer!

The hosts provide amazing service which reflects on the atmosphere of this motel. It is just perfect and have no complaints just compliments. Nothing was a problem as they provided all the cooking utensils etc. for our BBQ. This motel is far from basic as they go the extra mile with everything which we really appreciated. If travelling to Ballarat stay here, very suitable for families.
