Our stay at Ballarat Suites was absolutely excellent. The wheelchair accessible room was excellent, I am a C7 Quadriplegic and independent in all my care. There was plenty of space for my commode chair to move around the bedroom & bathroom. Our hosts were wonderful and very helpful in suppling or advising on food etc. Totally recommend anyone to stay...

We spent our last night of our Great Ocean Road Holiday here. With Sovereign Hill literally across the road, it very well placed. Very well priced, and the rooms being quite modern, we were very happy to spend our last night here. Would highly recommend it for the above mentioned location, and value for money!

Very fresh, modern, clean and well appointed. We stayed in a King Suite, and the room was great. Although on a fairly main road, very close to Sovereign Hill, there was no road noise, even though we had the window open all night. A 24 hour convenience store next door for any emergencies (or midnight snacks). Discount vouchers to local...

A great place to stay in Ballarat close to Sovereign hill and not far from the city centre. Spacious, well appointed rooms with excellent decor. If you are looking for a wheelchair accessible room I have rarely found one better.
