Room was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. Lovely newly renovated bathroom. Arrived back to our room late after a function and were very disappointed that there was no parking available within the complex and we had to park our car out on the highway.

We really enjoyed our stay at your motel. Bed was very comfortable and room very quiet. It was nice to have a couch to sit on and the spa bath looked very inviting but we just didn't have time to use it. We will certainly recommend your motel to others and hopefully we will be able to return soon.

Honestly, it is very hard to fault the Best Western Plus Ballarat Suites - hence the 5-star rating. My stay, which was for business in December 2016, was the most comfortable regional hotel stop that I can recall in recent years. After a wonderful and easy initial interaction with the lovely front desk employee/manager, I was surprised with the large...

Room was comfortable and hotel is so central to major tourist attractions. Very quiet place to stay also. Loved the spa bath, although there was a little debris that came out of the jets, but other than that perfect.

Hi Mel, yes our motel is ideally located in the attraction precinct of Ballarat within walking distance of Sovereign Hill and the Observatory, a short drive to M.A.D.E and the Ballarat Wildlife Park. Plenty to see and do whilst holidaying in Ballarat. :) We are disappointed to hear of the debris in your spa, we have a thorough cleaning program...

Stayed here with my girlfriend. The staff were friendly, the room was clean and well laid out, breakfast was divine and well worth the money paid for our stay. I will definitely recommend this place to friends visiting the area.

Stuart, what a great review - thank you! Our team is so thrilled to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your time away here in Ballarat. Receiving a freshly cooked breakfast served to your room is a great way to start the day, with pricing reflecting a cafe the hearty meals are well worth the investment :) Be sure to visit again...

Very comfortable room with modern decor and up to date amenities. Maybe a little noisy but rooms well designed to minimize traffic noise. Good place to overnight before driving into the heavy traffic which you experience on freeway into Melbourne. Walking distance to Sovereign Hill.

Thought we would say here overnight as we had a wedding nearby. When first walked into the room there was a strong smell or disinfectant and cigarettes. We notified the front desk so they didn't think it was us smoking even though we are non- smokers. They offered to try and purify the air somehow which I think would t...

Our King Spa Suite was very spacious and divided up into three rooms... sitting room (with kitchenette), bedroom (king bed) and bathroom (with deep two-person spa bath). The suite was clean, comfortable and quiet. Nice bathroom products. Parking right outside door. Location is on a main road just out of the city centre (5 minute drive). But virtually on the...

I stayed only one night in a one bedroom king spa suite. The staff were very friendly on arriving. First impression of the room was "wow this is nice". The room was very clean. Such a large comfy bed. An amazingly deep spa and even though I didn't use it a well stocked mini bar. Overall a very nice place...

Our stay in the King Room was really comfortable. Comfort is one of the main things for me when i stay away from home. The Bed was not too hard and the pillow had some height rather than the normal flat pillows.
