What a friendly motel, large rooms and and from our back door was a large open lawn, very relaxing after a driving, to sit and chill out with a cool drink. As there was no restaurant available on the night when were there we went next door to Lazy Moe's for dinner great service good food

This is an older hotel but has been refreshed. The reception staff were friendly, the car parking is free and the rooms are far enough back off the road to be quiet. After a big day of being a tourist it is nice to come back to a motel room with clean and comfy beds. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

We have stayed a couple of times here now - always a reasonable price and now with 24hr checkin it is even better. Good all round property, it is an older hotel but they look after it well. We will continue to stay here when in Ballarat.

We booked a king spa room for the last night of a mostly camping trip hoping for a little luxury. The room was very average for the price of $170. The spa didn't work - the inlet was dirty and possibly clogged. The doona on the bed didn't seem to have a cover - instead there was a sheet either...

Clean and big rooms. Staff friendly Great for functions families and quick one night stays. Dropped in with no booking they were happy to accommodate. Close enough but far enough away from the main part of Ballarat.

My parents and I stayed here over the weekend for 2 nights. The room was very basic but everything was functional. Our biggest complaint was from check in to check out nobody cleaned the room or replaced towels. When we came back to our room after being out all day we expected to be able to shower using fresh towels...

Always visit Ballarat in mid August when winter is at its bleakest. It is nice to come back to Belltower. This is a massive motel on Sturt Street west of the Memorial arch that rarely seems to be over half full. I am always given a room toward the back of the property where it is very quiet. The rooms...

I arrived around 8.50, reception closes at 9 I waited for 10minutes until anyone came. The lady told me several times that she couldn't wait to go home. I was given a twin room which was large but no lounge or couch and an average bathroom where I had to pry open the shower door. I then left it open....

Hi narelleh12016, I can't believe this happened at our motel. We pride ourselves on our fantastic customer service (as previous reviews comment on), so I was really surprised to read this review. I have spoken with the receptionist on duty that night and she was assisting the guests in the restaurant and didn't hear the door bell. As the owner,...

Nice-sized renovated rooms plus good breakfast + helpful staff made this a great location for our group to stay. It is a little out of the city of Ballarat, but easily accessible via the city bypass. Good indoor pool.
