“Fantastic big room and very comfortable bed”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

This motel, which is modern but uninspiring from the outside, hides some superb rooms. Our room had a large lounge and kitchenette area, a bedroom with one of the most comfortable king beds I've slept in plus a huge bathroom which had a large spa bath and separate shower. This is a cut above most motel rooms. However, there were a few niggly points:
a) the kitchenette is meanly kitted out and literally only has the 2 tea cups, 2 saucers and 2 tea spoons. Nothing more to open a beer bottle for example.
b) our bathroom had a damp smell and the wash basin was slow to drain. However, there were no signs of damp at all and the shower worked fine.
c) internet was via a cable and cost $6 for our overnight stay.

Location-wise, this motel isn't in town, but it is very convenient for Sovereign Hill. It's probably about 2kms outside of the CBD. It's also on a busy main road, but that didn't bother either of us as we both had a great night's sleep there.

It looks as if there's a restaurant/bar there, but it was closed that night. However, there was a reasonable choice of restaurants within easy walking distance.

We recently stayed at BW Ballarat Suites for the second time. As usual the people taking the booking were fantastic and accomodating having to change the extra bed from one night to the next. The executive room was excellent, roomy, clean and tidy. It is central to most tourist areas and only a 5 minute drive from CDB. I thoroughly recommend the BW Ballarat suites and do yourself a favour and call direct to book and get a very friendly greeting. You might find the prices cheaper than online.

Room Tip: Ask the people direct.

On arrival the staff were very friendly and helpful, and for a motel, I thought the rooms were beautifully designed and very comfortable.

Our room was very well set out and clean. We stayed on the ground floor, which had a garden feature outside the window. The bathroom is very well appointed. No bath though. The bed was comfortable. I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: I would prefer to stay in a ground floor room as there are stairs to the first floor.
