We stayed for a night and found it very convenient due to the location. Walking distance to the center and 5 min from Sovereign Hill Clean, quiet and comfortable. Good value for the money. Thanks Jenni!!

Stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom unit with kitchenette. Convenient to everything. Comfy beds and good linen. AC/Heater in main area and another in kids' bedroom (old models took about 5 mins to start, but worked well) and electric blankets were great because it was freezing outside. Shower over the spa bath had a partial screen so even though the water was hot, the air was cold. Be sure to clarify if you have a 2 bedroom unit or apartment. I phoned and made the booking for an apartment (full kitchen, family lounge area) and a few weeks later the owner rang and told me they had made a mistake with the booking and they would not honour the booking for that price, but they could move us to the unit room instead or we were welcome to make a booking with another hotel!! (We had already planned and budgeted for our trip, so we downgraded the room.) When we arrived, they had us booked in for 1 night, not 2. After some discussion the owner said that he would change "this booking to there".. when his wife asked would that be alright, he replied that yes that was a better unit anyway, so I thought we were getting moved to a better room, but no... we got the basic room and the other family was moved to the better room!!!! A little frustrating, but the stay was good anyway.

Our ground floor room was very clean and comfortable, with amenities such as toaster and electric hot plate as well as split system heating/cooling. The bed in Room 5 was very comfortable with quality linen and cosy comforter and a balcony allowed for fresh air and an additional place to sit with a view of the street.
The main room contained a kitchenette, good sized bed and a small table with two chairs along with a wall mounted television. (No couch). A secondary room held bunk beds and an additional single bed as well as another wall mounted television. The bathroom offered a corner shower, but no bath. Bedside tables were provided, but there was no wardrobe or draws for clothes.
The room was cosy but very clean and comfortable. Off-street parking was available and the establishment was on the main road into town directly opposite Pizza Hut and an easy walk to Hungry Jack's, McDonald's, Hog's Breath Cafe, local pubs and a multitude of other restaurants and shops.
There was a small indoor pool which was open until 9.30pm.
Overall, the Ballarat Central City Motor Inn was comfortable and well priced and we would be very happy to stay there again.

The service we received was fantastic. The rooms are newly refurbed & spotlessly clean. It is close to the CBD and to all attractions within the town. Do yourself a favour and book in here next time you are looking for a bed in Ballarat.

Booked over the internet. They had a very good website.which gave us the cost in our own currency. Room was very modern and central.Two minutes walk to several restaurantes including two Indian, a Japanese and a Hogsbreathe cafe. Although close to main road the traffic noise was not a problem.Close to two large supermarkets.We were able to check in at midday There was a mini bar with snacks and drinks in it.Off road parking as we had a rental car. We had a balcony which you could sit with table and chairs. It is about 20minute walk from railway station.
