Lots of fun and very educational for Miss 9 & Mr 7. Interactive and informative. We found gold. The gold paning is lots of fun and the staff really helpful. Food is expensive so I suggest packing some snacks. We did the evening meal and show. I can highly recommend.

This was different to what I expected. I thought we were staying in a proper hotel but it was like turning up to school camp. It was very noisy - kids running around and babies crying - it is the school holidays. The cleaning could be improved also. The carpets weren't clean, bathrooms could do with some maintenance - leaking...

Stayed here recently for one night in the Canadian Gully and loved it. Rooms are not 5 star nor do you need them to be, room was clean and tidy but nothing fancy. We got a family package which included 2 day access to Sovereign Hill park as well and we could leave our room and be inside the park...

Well priced, clean and reasonably sized rooms in old buildings just outside the Sovereign Hill theme park.Centrally heated which is important in Ballarat in September. Couple of kms from city, but (irregular) buses from outside Sovereign Hill. Includes buffet breakfast.

We had never been to Melbourne before so we decided to visit Sovereign Hill in Ballarat and pay a bit extra for the Governor's Room. This was definitely worth it. Upon arrival in the cold, the room already had the heating on which was a welcome feeling. The bed was extremely comfy, very professional decorated room. Only issue was the...
