We stayed overnight with no intention to visit the Sovereign Hill park itself. If it hadn't been for NYE we might have been pretty unhappy staying in some of the last rooms at the end of the last accommodation building, which, judging by signage, general wear and tear, and bunk bed population, seemed to be designed for large school groups...

We stay for one night in order to visit the show. It is very convenient location as it is in to the area of the Balarat park for that show. The hotel and the services are ok. Exactly what we have been expected. The room very nice, the bathroom clean and the bed comfortable. Also the breakfast was ok and...

We arrived about 6 pm, just looking for a room after a long drive from the Great Ocean Road. Jo (think that's the correct name) couldn't have been more helpful as she not only found us a room, but upgraded us and also booked us on the sound and light show plus the meal beforehand. A wonderful experience all the...

My family and I stayed one night at this hotel. We picked it because of it's local to Soverign Hill and boy is it close. You feel like a VIP as you use your room key card to gain access to Soverign Hill right through a historical building in the park itself. The hotel was great, it is made up...

Decided to stay with comfort inn after reading the reviews. However, we are somewhat disappointed with the stay. The room light was not working when we checked in. When we informed the reception, we were told that the maintenance was already off duty, and that was at 4pm. They then promised to check if the manager could fix the lights....
