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.

Stayed overnight at Tranquility - close to the Trotting Club Bistro, which is good for a meal.

Oasis

Nice escape from world outside. Lovely smell of fresh bread cooking on arrival. Staff bent over backwards to ensure we were happy and had everything we needed. Not modern but very homely and comfortable.

Nice quiet place, very relaxing with everything

Pros: Hot Bread, Massage Chair, Spa, Comfortable Bed, Peace & Quiet, The Nice Host Jenny, Value For Money
Cons: Don't think there's anything to improve, going to be hard to beat
Location: Various places to have a meal, shopping close by, Sovereign Hill and various other places to venture out to
The moment we arrived and opened the door to the smell of fresh bread cooking, after unpacking car the next thing we did was have a massage in the massage chair to unwind absolutely awesome. Then met the host Jenny who couldn't do enough for us and felt as though nothing was to much trouble, that night I had a spa which was so relaxing, the gas log fire was definitely enough to keep you warm and cosy on the cold nights would recommend to anyone hard to beat.
