        Comfortable and Convenient”

        Very handy to Kryal Castle which we were visiting for a weekend festival. If your visit was to central Ballarat this is a little further away but the value for money might offset that. The manager was very cheerful and helpful and our room was fine with everything comfy and working well.

        OK if on a budget ”

        Main highway, very noisy. Staff friendly, easy check in. Extremely outdated queen room, linen and towels clean but could do with a massive makeover. Wouldn't walk barefoot on the stained carpet. OK if on a budget and just need a stopover but have to say there are heaps of nicer hotels closer to the city for a few extra dollars.
