I regularly travel to Ballarat for work and have stayed at a number of hotels in the area. Sovereign Park is, in my opinion, the best in the Ballarat area. It's close enough to all the attractions like Sovereign Hill and the CBD, but just far enough out of the CBD to not be affected by noise. Their rooms are... More

I was competing in Tough Mudder at St.Anne's winery and we wanted a place close by to stay. We booked here because it had rooms for families and an indoor pool. We were knocked out by the pool facilities - two spas and enough room for the kids to swim around. The gym and relaxation area are also well appointed.... More

If your hotel budget extends to $150 a night, this is big step up in quality to the many $130 hotels available. Although situated close to a rather busy road, the windows are double glazed as there was minimal noise from outside. The shower and bathroom finishings are premium quality, and the renovation is very modern and feels rather new.... More

Celebrating a friends birthday was great with a Saturday night stay at the SPMI. We booked the 2 adjoining room which was very suitable. It comprised a double bed in the main hotel room, another room with 3 single beds and a shared bathroom. It was fine for a short stay; good for bonding. The facility was clean and had... More
