The mattress was ridiculously soft in the room and although it was clean it is in desperate need of some repairs

very good value. Clean room, largish, staff turned heating on before our late arrival, after we had notified them that we were running late. Very comprehensive breakfast for the money. Also, centrally located in Ballarat.

Reception staff were not welcoming and could not take the time to acknowledge you. They need a lesson in good customer service. Room was clean. Good location, noisy from cars coming and going all night. Breakfast was great and the staff serving breaky were very nice. I would not stay here again.
