Hot water service in adjacent rooms very noisy. When you have the bathroom light on the fan is automatically on also and it is very noisy and annoying.

Loved the walk distance from Winter wonderlight show. No stress of parking at the hill. Heated pool was good for family. The spa in the pool can get heated more (ask staff) and very good. Sauna was nice too. Room spa and shower is clean and new, big, good water pressure. Bit expensive for room size. But I agreed with the price. Plenty laundry. Restaurant is next to hotel, can get room service. Bit driving to centre of ballarat. Good place. Swimmed a lot!

Great place to stay with kids. Walking distance to Sovereign Hill. The pool was beautifully warm and we loved the sauna, which was an unexpected surprise. The attached Red Lion was a great place for meals. Would definitely recommend.
