“A Great place to stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Very clean and very refreshing place to stay. A modern place with expert advise on places to see. Very quiet at night just the way I like it. The jacuzzi was huge no kickbacks there, but the shower I found alittle to low and doesn't cater for giants like myself lol. Other then that it was an awesome place I recommend it to anybody to stay at. I give it a 5/5.

Room Tip: Room 10 , The Kings suite

Modern motel opposite Sovereign Hill Tourist attraction, with comfortable bedding, large room and shower facilities, twin basin and on site open air parking. Ground and first floor units accessed by stairs from car park. Located on a main road, however quiet inside the unit. Very clean with fresh linen. Restaurants nearby within walking distance, motel located approx. 2 kms from CBD. No pool or similar facilities.

The hotel was nice and quite, no shower or toilet noises from the next rooms. The restaurant wasn't open which was a bit of a disappointment. It was close enough to everything. I would stay there again next time Im staying in Ballarat

We booked this hotel for one night on wotif.com and it exceeded my expectations. Good location, quiet, and good price. We found the issues with the shower same as other reviews - water floods the floor and need to bend down to get under the shower head. Comfortable bed after long drive. A couch would be better than the 2 lounge chairs. Housekeeping a bit intrusive opening the door while I was getting dressed at 9:15 - well before checkout time of 10am.

Room Tip: Would have liked to use the spa but ran out of time.

Ballarat Suites is situated on Main Rd, Ballarat, virtually opposite Sovereign Hill and the Gold Museum in Ballarat, and about 3 kilometres fron the Eureka Stockade Interactive Museum in Ballarat East. I stayed in the King Spa room, comprising of a kitchenette/lounge room and seperate bedroom. By definition the King Spa room provided a great King size bed, comfy and firm and a plunge spa in the bathroom. In fact the spa is so big that my conscience wouldn't allow me to use it..since the world has become more aware of water usage etc., it just seemed like an unnecessary decandence. The bathroom also spacious, provides a shower that I was more than happy to utilise.
Nearby to the property there are fish & chips, chinese food, coffee shop and Zagame's Hotel, a bit further down the road, about a kilometre, is the red Lion Hotel. Both pubs have food, beer (of course), pokies and a TAB.
Only negative, Ballarat Suites is about 3 kilometres from the Ballarat CBD, definately Taxi distance if you're going out for a couple of sips!!
My room was one of the older rooms on the property, nicely refurbished, clean and comfortable, I'd have no hesitation in recommeding this hotel to anyone wish to visit Ballarat

I would have given this motel a higher rating, but was let down by the fact that my booking included a complementary light breakfast, but I was told in the morning that I had arrived too late (around 7:30pm, and the owners were preoccupied with a TV program) to organise this. In retrospect, perhaps they could have offered me some money back for the breakfast component of the booking.

Room Tip: The lady at reception said the first-floor rooms were quieter.

Pros:
Modern rooms
Good views
Great service
Very close to Sovereign Hill, The Gold Museum, restaurants/pubs and servos.
Very good air con/heating

Cons
The king size mattress was made up of two single beds which made it uncomfortable where the beds joined together.
A lounge was needed instead of two single chairs.
The fridge became dangerously hot as there wasnt enough ventilation in the cupboard.
The walls made very loud noises when it was windy, which resulted in many nights of disrupted sleep.
A bug was found in the bed one night, as well as many strands of hair stuck to the quilt as there was no quilt cover.
Shower was spacious, although the shower head needs to be placed at the long end of the shower as this will prevent water from spraying out all over the bathroom floor. The shower head also needed to be placed higher as those taller people have to bend to fit under the shower head.

Overall, the Best Western was an appealing place to stay.
