Room was huge. Spotless. Parking a tad squeezy. Pub entrance via the motel carpark so extremely convenient.had a drink by the fire which was cosy-nice ambience. Meals available in the pub.Close to the city and lake.
Would stay again.

Room Tip: Is 2 storey so ask for ground floor if needed.

Having the restaurant close was so handy anything delivered for a small fee lunch and/or dinner. The only downfall I could find was no dvd player in the room and no microwave and funnily enough odd shaped mugs which made warming up a bottle rather difficult.
I found the correspondence via email for our booking not oozing customer service but with such a clean spacious room no complaints.

A very large bedroom, with easily enough room for the couch and table. Very clean and tidy, and close to any necessary facilities (supermarket and pharmacy within 200m was very convenient).

The heating took a little to figure out, but is working well to keep the chill out on a very brisk night.

We stayed here for the night, found the location great, close to the lake so good for walking. The room was clean and tidy, well appointed and a good size. A good nights sleep is always high on our agenda and this was delivered as the room was quiet and the bed comfortable.

I booked this hotel for 3 days, direct with the hotel. found that the receptionist very easy to deal with, and no question was too much. Oour stay was pleasant and enjoyable, liked that I could go for a nice walk around the lake in the morning before work. There are many close restaurants and cafes to dine at. As I chose the apartment which had a nice kitchenette, I tend to prepare my own meals and didnt get out. I will definatley stay next time, as the location is nice, rooms are well looked after and plenty of parkling.

Took a two bedroom apartment for my family. Very clean and spacious. Kitchen had bare minimum crockery for four people. Good size fridge. Layout was a little strange with second bedroom having no windows. great location handy to city centre, lake Wendouree and main roads into Ballarat. Restaurant serves good pub fare with a good local bar atmosphere. No laundry service but machines available for limited hours. No lift to second level. ample offstreet parking. Friendly service. would definitwly stay again.
