Very nice place with good fast wifi. I seem to find many hotels these days with a joining door to the next room. The doors here provide no privacy and you can hear every move the person in the room next door makes, spoils a very good experience otherwise.

My husband and I stayed the night in one of the spa suites. The room itself was great - clean, good size, well furnished, mini bar, king sized bed!! And the spa was amazing. We could've easily stayed another night...and another!! The staff were fantastic, so friendly and extremely helpful and accommodating. The location is not too far from the...

I booked a room for myself and my 80 year old Mum who has limited mobility and they were very accommodating. We had an accessible room on the ground floor, right near the front. My sister & her husband also booked and were given the room right next to us - a joint room - which made things even easier....

A lovely, large, modern room with kitchenette, couch, table and chairs and king bed so very comfortable. Also has a great bathroom with double sinks so plenty of room to spread out. Over the road from Sovereign Hill and a few restaurants within walking distance. Also very quiet even though on a main road and next to a petrol station....

I regularly visit Best Western Suites on business in Ballarat. I can always depend on them to have clean fresh rooms, beds and wonderful fluffy towels for me when I arrive. as a woman travelling alone it's great to have a safe comfortable place to stay when visiting Ballarat.

The room was lovely and comfortable. It was very spacious. The bathroom was nice and clean (shower only room). However, the toilet was dirty when I first checked the facilities. I had to flush the toilet 3 times for it to be clean. I would have also preferred a toilet with a door.

My first time staying at Best Western Ballarat and it won't be my last. Very clean, quiet, comfortable and modern room with plenty of space and excellent facilities. The bathroom was spacious with plenty of bench space. The kitchenette was great and the bed comfortable.

The rooms are very modern and clean and the price of accommodation is acceptable. The reception staff are knowledgable and very helpful. Great Thai restaurant nearby, sit in or take-away; although on a busy main road. 2 min. walk to Sovereign Hill mining exhibition which is a great reason to visit Ballarat.

Very close to Sovereign Hill. The room was a great size - with 2 tables making it easy to do some work and the other person to eat at the dining table. Bedroom was a good size and the spa was the best 2 person spa I've ever used. Very clean and friendly staff. I won't be staying anywhere else...
