The rooms were spacious and well appointed with very comfortable bedding. We were one of of 12 vehicles on a 5 day car tour and so were able to look at other rooms beside our own. We stayed in other motel's in different towns and this one was by far the best. It was also more expensive than the others...

Thank you for your response Michael. Sorry to hear that the alarm was pre-set by the previous guest, yes this should of been turned off. We do supply a large amount of different size and firmness pillows to each room, that way the guests can choose the style they love, just like at home.

If your main activity in Ballarat is Sovereign Hill, staying here is a wise choice. This relatively new accommodation is newly refurbished & so near Sovereign Hill you can actually walk there. Service is friendly & warm.

On an extremely cold, windy and rainy weekend, we felt very snug and secure in our suite. Lots of space and very quiet despite being close to the road. Luxury bathroom. Comfortable bed. Well stocked kitchenette.
