It was on a junction of a busy road so noisy till late evening. The room was upstairs and sound carried up from the road. Noisy late arrivals and adjoining room. Shower over enormous spa and difficult to access.

2/10 Poor

This property is terrible! Cobwebs everywhere, mould in the bathroom, terrible smell of mustiness! When the owner was approached she stayed on her phone and wasn’t willing to help. I asked for another room with a walk in shower and I was told it’s only for people in a wheelchair. I have a disability with 3 spinal fusions and nerve damage and I was still told no! Then she said it’s booked!! She was very rude!! Never go there again! But her husband was very polite. Think twice before you book here

ok cheap stay in Ballarat
ok cheap place to stay. close to shops and eating places. we were lucky enough to be given a larger room with a spa bath. unfortunately the shower was in the bath and this was a little awkward for us older travellers. our room was spacious. had table and chairs and a couch. the room was at the far end of the building overlooking a fairly busy intersection. it was noisy at night
