A Suite Stay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 5, 2012

My wife and I were visiting Ballarat and a night stay was on our travel plan before heading back to Melbourne. I chose this hotel based on price ($78 a night for a suite) and its location to the Lake.

When we pulled up to the hotel; it looked very nice but nothing to Oooh and Aahhh about. Check it was at 2pm and we arrived early so we headed next door to the pub for some lunch. After lunch and a good exploration of the Lake we were able to check in.

The exterior of the hotel is definitely deceiving as the inside did impress. Our suite was on the second floor; corner room. The room was very large; surprisingly so. The living room/dining room area was incredibly big. The bathroom was very nice with a large shower. The bedroom was a good size and there was a full kitchenette. The room was immaculately clean and we loved the comfortable bed.

Internet was a problem as the wireless signal is extremely poor unless you are at the front desk of the hotel. I did though like that there was free laundry services available; it is self service. The laundry room has a washer and dryer along with laundry detergent. My wife and I were able to do our laundry which was nice especially when we came home with an almost totally clean bag of clothes to NY.

The staff here is very friendly and nice. The location of the hotel is good for walking to the Lake but not the main center of town (we drove). It is located in a primarily residential area so it is very quiet; which we appreciated.

Unique Quality: The free laundry facilities were a bonus. We also enjoyed the kitchenette.
