Lovely to walk into with the smell of fresh bread cooking and the place was warm. A very cosy retreat in a quiet part of Ballarat. Breakfast left a lot to be desired. Don’t get me wrong, toast, muffins, eggs, apple juice, were supplied but I don’t drink apple juice. I like to have cereal and orange juice with toast. I could not get water to boil on the hot plates on the microwave oven to cook the eggs, hence I had a very light breakfast. I did feel the grouting in the shower needed a clean. It was still a lovely place to stay and I felt very secure.

We send a message daily to see if there is anything you need. The hotplates require the underneath microwave on. A phone call and we would have told you or been straight over, as I was with another toaster when you thought the toaster didn't work, but was just not plugged in.

The property is wonderfully furnished, located in a beautiful and quiet area and still close to amenities.
