Booked a package deal for 1 night for $460 which included being accommodated in Sovereign Hill, dinner & "Blood on the Southern Cross" show. Our room was very nice. The dinner was at the hotel in Sov. Hill which had lovely atmosphere, but very small food portions and no choice. The show was fantastic, the highlight of our stay.
But what spoilt the whole time we were there was the fact our room (no. 56) was right in the middle of over 100 primary school children having a sleep over in two dormitories on either side of our room. Was told by reception that 3 different schools were staying there.
Came back to our room after Sovereign Hill closed to have a break before dinner and show, only to find yelling kids playing football right outside our door, looking in our windows and hitting the ball against the wall of our room. The next morning the children trooped past from 6.30 am, dragging their bags and chattering, getting ready to leave.
The children weren't doing anything wrong, excited to be there. What I objected to was paying all that money and having no privacy, peace or quiet because the hotel chose to dump us right in the middle of the kids.
You would be better off to stay at a nice B & B in Ballarat, have dinner at one of the many restaurants and just paying to go into Sovereign Hill and the show separately.
