We particularly enjoyed the setting of the hotel with extensive grounds and gardens. The room was very comfortable and we were appreciative of the chairs provided in the room which allowed an area to sit and relax. The room was also very quiet and peaceful.

Pleasing surrounds and friendly staff. A little older and without some modern inclusions . Cable TV was limited to sky news. On site meals were excellent if on the expensive side.

I’ve been using this hotel for a while now if I need to visit my kids in Ballarat. In general I am very happy with the hotel and staff. But this time around I’ve got a knock on my door at 9.30am to confirm my check out. One of the reasons I’m using this facility is the 11am check out. So why on earth they had to come and knock on the door at 9.30am no one will know. This is the first time it happened in all the time I’ve been booked in there. Was a bit disappointing thought.

Our stay was good. It was very quiet, warm and comfortable. The only criticism I have is that the breakfast buffet is extremely expensive for what it is, however, we would definitely stay there again.
