Positive Reviews

Prime position in Ballarat

Rave reviews have been a common occurrence when it came to the location of the hotel. Past guests have stated that, thanks to its position in the heart of Ballarat, the property is within comfortable walking distance of many dining options, stores and attractions.

Spotlessly clean and well-appointed rooms

Nearly all previous visitors have applauded the level of cleanliness on display at the accommodation. As well as being spotless and tidy, the rooms were usually described as well-appointed with comfortable furnishings and beneficial amenities.

Great standard of food served

For many of those that sampled the food, the on-site café and bar was a highlight of staying at the hotel. Whether it was breakfast, dinner or just a light snack, former guests have regularly noted that the meals were at a great standard overall.

Negative Reviews

Noise can be an issue

When taking into account the sentiments of numerous previous visitors, noise can be potentially troublesome when staying at the accommodation. Along with reported clamour from on-site functions, noise from outside can supposedly be noticeable when residing in rooms facing the street.

Wi-Fi quality not the best

Although useable for the most part, the hotel's free Wi-Fi service was negatively received on occasion by past guests that used the service. For those that had issues, the wireless Internet has been regarded as somewhat intermittent and slow.

No lift available

If you have mobility issues, it should be noted that the accommodation does not currently possess a lift. Due to this disadvantage, a notable amount of former visitors were understandably critical about having to traverse the stairs to reach their rooms.
