Reviewed March 28, 2013

We had an excellent night here for our Ballarat visit. Really well equipped and spotlessly clean. Near the lake and all Ballarat has to offer. A great offering! No need to look anywgere else. The kids loved tthe large tv.

Finally made it to Ballarat for the begonia festival. After looking at almost every accommodation available for weeks I found the LWLA. Wow what a beautiful place. It was everything that I hoped it would be. Beautifully decorated with the best of furniture and fixtures. Great location in lovely Webster St and a nice walk to the cafes and hotel. Great breakfast and coffee at Racers and lovely dinners at the Lake View Cafe. Looking forward to returning in the cooler months to enjoy the gas fire.

Thank you Annette for your review , we are steadily building our business since opening in June 2012 we are located without doubt in Ballarats most prestigious street amongst 100 year old oak trees and a short walk to Lake Wendouree .

This was our third stay at the apartments, as other people have said it really is a great location, and a couple of minutes to the lake, also very quiet even at night. The apartments are very comfortable with all mod cons, and good off street parking in open fronted garage, at rear of property. Also good sized supermarket with liqueur outlet and hot bread shop only about 700m away, for any last monutes things
This time stayed in unit 1 it was great sort of like a tree house view, also large island bench in kitchen, which was great, also a large shower

Any time in Ballarat would not hesitate to stay again

Room Tip: Unit 1 upstairs at the front has small front and back private balconies, with large shower, an air c...

Instead of purchasing 2 motel rooms, we spent about the same amount of money and rented a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment. It meant that the 4 of us could spend more time together. This accommodation was luxury all the way. The fully equipped kitchen meant we could make our own breakfast, supper and snacks. The Apple TV meant we could watch anything that we wanted to on YouTube.

Thank you for your review and highlighting the advantages our apartments offer over a motel room , we offer everything you would find at home lots of space ,light and full kitchens with a full size fridge not a bar fridge you find in motel rooms .

I introduced Apple TV as a alternative to pay tv , guests can also use there apple devices to log on use I tunes , play movies and project power point presentations photos etc onto our 55" HD TV sets using air play , we are always trying to keep our guests up to date with the latest technology available.

We stayed at Lake Wendouree Luxury Apartments for our annual Christmas trip and could not fault the accommodation. It was clean bright and modern with everything we needed for a family stay, a great bed and very quiet for sleeping. The owners and staff were very helpful and accommodating to all our needs, and the position is exceptional in one of the prettiest streets with excellent access to cafes restaurants and the lake for morning walks. The easy access to shopping and all facilities is second to none. A lovely stay for us all and we will be back.

Stayed 2 nights ( not enough ) on Weekend in November, we stay unit 6, spoke to Gavin on phone re a couple of questions( very friendly and booked online ) the unit well by apartment standards it is large well twice the size of a new one in Melbourne, very well finished with modern furniture all very comfy, loved the gas log fire in the large living / kitchen area, also good stove and cookware which is important to me.

The location, well it is the bees knees in Ballarat, best street in town and a 2-3 minute walk to the lake , a café, a hotel and restaurant and 5-6 minutes to another hotel and supermarket .

Parking is a rear of the property in individual open fronted garage, only 6 units in the block and surround by great homes.

All in all great, and have already booked for a return visit in december

Room Tip: I think upstairs units would be the best, ours was at the back on the ground floor

We had a fantastic stay here, 3 great nights, and totally enjoyed the light filled spaces, fantastic kitchen, and comfy lounge on leafy Webster street, close to everything. We walked the lake, had great coffee/breakfast a short stroll away. A short drive to world class restaurants was a bonus. Being so comfortable and well appointed, we enjoyed lazing on the sofa between outings in this gorgeous City of Ballarat. Very quiet at night makes for a peaceful sleep - the kids loved every minute.

Thank you for your kind review we are constantly looking to improve our beautiful apartments and welcome your feedback . The Electronic door pads save keys however they can be a little confusing first time we might try a laminated card with pictured instructions outside each door ! Just fitted sensor lights also in doorways and now we have live video security installed in car park .
Thanks again we appreciate your comments and look forward to welcoming you back to LWLA
