Nice quiet location out of town next to Sovereign Hill tourist attraction. Very clean, very quiet. Great buffet breakfast included in cost. Very comfortable King size bed. Only problem we had was that the heating would not work but it was not extremely cold so okay but this would be an issue in colder months.

We stayed here for two nights to visit family, without actually going to the park. The accomodation was excellent, clean and tidy. Check-in was easy and the staff very helpful. Parking is free and only a short walk to the accommodation. If you are visiting the park, you can't get better than this!!!

When you stay here, you walk down through the Chinese Protector's Office and head into Sovereign Hill park and 1850's Ballarat... Once you walk back through - a well appointed room with a huge king bed and massive bathroom with tons of light...

We visited for the weekend and chose the family gold package. It is worth every cent! The room was really basic but not in a bad way. It was clean and really comfortable. A huge bath that we unfortunately didn't get time to try out. I'm sure it would be fantastic though. The bed was sooo comfortable! The staff: Honestly,...
