Positive Reviews

Extensive menu.

Guests staying at this hotel can look forward to visiting the onsite restaurant and sampling some of the meals from the wide selection. A bonus is that guests wont have to worry about an expensive meal, and they wont have to travel to reach a decent meal.

Clean rooms.

The rooms offered at this hotel are kept in a very clean condition, and guests can look forward to all the in-room amenities working well. The rooms are well maintained, and the housekeeping staff are praised for the great job they do in keeping guests comfortable throughout their stay.

Quiet surroundings.

While this hotel is located close to the CBD of Ballarat, guests need not fear any noise. The rooms are surprisingly quiet and guests have found that they get a good, quiet night's sleep, while still being rather conveniently located.

Negative Reviews

No elevator.

Guests staying on the upper floor may find that the fact they have to carry their luggage up to their room themselves to be a bit of a struggle, as the walkways are long, and if one is bringing a lot of luggage, it can become rather tiresome.

Small bathrooms.

Unfortunately, the compact-sized bathrooms are not very pleasant to maneuver. Guests have found that they fumble and bump their way through their ablutions, which can be a rather frustrating experience.

Strange setup.

Guests will find that the layout of the rooms may be odd, especially when it comes to TV time. The only area to watch TV in, is in the main bedroom, so guests will find that the bed then becomes the main seating area. Which can be rather uncomfortable.
