          Thank you for your 5 STAR review swmitch69. Our hotel was renovated on a grand scale just a couple of years ago. Probably the biggest renovation since its opening back in 1854.

          Love the renovated rooms, very well presented, really friendly staff and very comfortable bed and the wood fired pizzas downstairs were great, we'd be happy to stay again next time we are in Ballarat and will look forward to it.

          I see that the facilities show a pool. I rang before we traveled and was told "no we don't have a pool" You may need to amend your facilities list or let us in on the secret as to where the mystery pool is. Other than that, we enjoyed a 4 night stay.
