“A welcome retreat”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

After staying in a dirty, disgusting place in Warrnambool the previous night which cost nearly twice as much it was like paradise to be here.

The staff were truly amazing and when we asked if we could pick up some water promptly brought ice and water to our room shortly after we arrived. They also dropped off plates and utensils for the food we had delivered later that night.

The room was excellent. It was clean, modern and comfortable. The bathroom had a huge walk-in shower and two sinks. My wife loved it.

Over-all I was very impressed with every aspect of our stay.

We are so pleased that your stay with us was a comfortable one. We believe that your experience should have a home away from home feel.

Perhaps you could indulge with our Winter Warmer Spa package next time you are in Ballarat.

Our room was new, clean and fresh. Very impressed with the whole package. Thanks to the owners and staff. Some nice restaurants down the road and made our trips to Sovereign Hill very easy - it's just over the road.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side have really cool Japanese style baths

We stopped over in the middle of a long trip. The room was very nice. Comfortable, stylish, quiet and spacious. The owners were lovely and incredibly accommodating. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We will be staying again.

Very clean and comfortable. I book a 2 rooms suite but was given 2 connecting rooms. Fittings are modern and facilities likes microwave oven, jacuzzi, warming light above toilet bowl are nice. The down side are the staff (an middle age lady) didn't appear to be welcoming to us. No smile and no greeting us, I guess we are Chinese family thus getting such serving quality. Another issue would be expired cereal (more than a month) were placed in the room, luckily I check before consume.

Room Tip: All the room look quite nice. You won't be wrong of choosing any room. However ground floor is g...

Chose this accommodation based on TripAdvisor ratings. A very nice place to stay. No restaurant on site, but plenty of food choices within walking distance - Zagame's, Inn of Khong (Asian), fish & chips (which I had, and was pleasantly surprised by the quality).......
My room was very well appointed, with plunge spa, free cable TV and sensational A/C. Bed was really comfortable, and the water pressure in the shower was fantastic. Wi-fi was a bit sketchy, as I had to re-sign in every half hour or so.
The only real let-down, was that there was no swimming pool or fitness centre. Other than that, no complaints.
Would definitely stay here again.

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
