Fantastic accommodation with friendly hosts who make you feel welcome. Room modern and very clean. We had the King room with spa, it is a plunge spa and very spacious. Bathroom was pristine and had excellent amenities available. Unusual these days to find a toaster and microwave which was fantastic. They also do fantastic coffees available in a takeaway cup....

Honestly, it is very hard to fault the Best Western Plus Ballarat Suites - hence the 5-star rating. My stay, which was for business in December 2016, was the most comfortable regional hotel stop that I can recall in recent years. After a wonderful and easy initial interaction with the lovely front desk employee/manager, I was surprised with the large...

Will come again. Very nice room, fast wifi and friendly staff. Convenient location as well. Price wise it was very affordable and worths every cent. Restaurants and shops nearby makes it a good location to rest and spend a night.

Came up to Ballarat from Melbourne to visit family and friends. Chose this hotel for location and the good reviews online. Friendly staff, perfectly clean and tidy - extremely large and comfortable. I've stayed at a lot of hotels and never come across one without some small flaw - well now I have. Highly recommend for stays short and long...

Everything about this hotel is good. The room we stayed in was very large, including the bathroom. Everything was super clean and new and the beds were very comfortable. We were able to park our hire car right outside our room which was very convenient. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is a short walk to Sovereign...

All good location, rooms clean and tidy, and comfy bed. Bathroom great with the twin handbasin, very handy when both trying to get ready the same time. Staff very helpful. Keep the reviews short and sweet and more people will make an effort to write a review.

After a long drive, it was nice to have an easy check in and to soon find myself in a spacious and well cared for room. The modern bathroom with double sink and massive shower was excellent.
