We had a one night stay and the Bell Tower Inn last weekend during our weekend in Ballarat. It was great. The owners and staff were very friendly and accommodating, the rooms were large and clean and the bedding fresh and modern. The highlight was the indoor heated pool. Our kids spent hours in there and were very disappointed we...

This really is a wonderful Motel. We enjoyed everything about it - the food ,the room, the staff. It all was luxury plus even to the guinea pigs in their home. We were looked after and truly we felt we were honoured guests until we noticed that everyone else was treated in a similar manner. Talking with other guests during...

On a family trip, we decided to stay in Ballarat overnight and the Bell Tower Inn was our first choice as my husband had stayed there on many occasions and had said that the owners always made him very welcome and offered him discounts on return trips as they were genuinely grateful that he choose to return when he needed...

Hi Geo M, Unfortunately, your review is not based on true facts. If you compare your review with the rest of our reviews, it compares like chalk and cheese.

The suite was large enough for my husband and his walking frame. The bathroom huge with an easy access to shower with shower chair and grab rails...

Was staying there with the CFA fire crews. Staff were totally obliging for anything that was needed. On New Years Eve we were late getting back from the fires (about 9.30pm) and they put on a nice dinner for everyone - totally above and beyond since it was New Years eve. Rooms were nice and beds comfy, air conditioning in...

Comfortable stay, serene. Massive leg space in bathroom and bedroom. Relaxing sauna and swimming pool. The real bummer was the wifi connection. The claim made is free wifi but the data allowed to spend is 200 MB and that was a real bummer.

Hi Fiona, Thank you for reviewing the Bell Tower Inn. It was disappointing to read your review. We take a lot of pride in the cleanliness of our rooms and it would appear that there was an oversight with the cleaning products left in the room. This isolated incident has been brought to the attention of the Housekeeping Supervisor. I...
