Only reason that I didn't give an excellent rating is that there is no TV in the bedroom and no restaurant on site. Had to walk down the street for food, and Ballarat in late May is bloody chilly. Nice place to stay and will stay there every time I'm in Ballarat for work.

Hi Marc, you'll have to try our King Executive Suites next time as you can watch TV from the bed. We do advise booking these rooms early to avoid missing out as they do fill up quickly during the week with our corporate guests. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

A lovely, large, modern room with kitchenette, couch, table and chairs and king bed so very comfortable. Also has a great bathroom with double sinks so plenty of room to spread out. Over the road from Sovereign Hill and a few restaurants within walking distance. Also very quiet even though on a main road and next to a petrol station....

The Best Western Ballarat is outside of the city, but very close to Sovereign Hill. There's an excellent Bistro within walking distance and the hotel will deliver coffee and breakfast to your room for a reasonable fee. Nice, clean, huge room.

We stayed at this hotel due to the proximity to Sovereign Hill (only a 10 minute walk). We stayed on the ground floor and our room was very clean and comfortable. The desk and cleaning staff were friendly and very willing to help with any concerns or questions you may have. There are restaurants very near by - try Billy's...

Meeting with accountant is much more pleasurable when it can be topped off with a relaxing spa and unhurried stay in an excellent hotel. Certain to stay again and make it our base when visiting Ballarat.

Fantastic accommodation with friendly hosts who make you feel welcome. Room modern and very clean. We had the King room with spa, it is a plunge spa and very spacious. Bathroom was pristine and had excellent amenities available. Unusual these days to find a toaster and microwave which was fantastic. They also do fantastic coffees available in a takeaway cup....
