Dark Hotel at Night”

The hotel is clean and with easy access to souvereign hills , our only main concern was it was too dark in the parking and so creepy at night. Once you get to the room then its fine. Restaurants were a bit far from the hotel. If you are not coming back to souvereign hills the nest day i would suggest you look for a better hotel near the city where there are more things you can do at night.

Price, location, service.

Comfort Inn Sovereign Hill is located in a quiet attractive tree garden setting on the outskirts of Ballarat. There is plenty of free off street parking and the reception was inviting and efficient. It is reasonably priced, clean, and comfortable. Staff were friendly and the buffet breakfast dainty and delicious. Our double room was spacious, well furnished and had all the usual facilities. With the opaque blinds and peaceful surrounds sleep was easy. Strongly recommend.

One night stay in their deluxe rooms”

Easy to find with helpful staff. Great location being right behind Sovereign Hill and had plenty of car parks, even a few right by each building. Room was clean and neat upon arrival. Seems like central heating is always on which was quite nice for a winters night. However, you could clearly hear neighbours in the hallway and entering their rooms. You could also hear the school kids that play in the yard. This wasn't much of an issue as all neighbours arrived home at reasonable hours and school kids were no longer allowed to be out late at night. Overall, a good experience and would recommend this place.

Overall experience was positive. The hotel is connected to Sovereign Hill which is why we stayed there. Room was basic but you get what you pay for. In terms of location, if your visit to Ballarat is for Sovereign Hill then this is the best hotel in the best location. We purchased the package deal was was $70 cheaper buying it through the hotel then buying it direct from the Sovereign Hill ticket website.
