This motel has very basic standards. No charm and luxury at all, but it is very convenient to visit Sovereign Hill (walking distance). I was a little bit disappointed by the absence of specific treatment/gift for Best Western Diamond Elite status: Even drinking water was paying in the room.

Natalie M, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Ballarat Suites, responded to this review

Yes, our motel is in a great location for visiting Sovereign Hill. As the newest motel in Ballarat our facilities are fresh, modern and spacious so we're not sure what you mean in regards to basic standards which is a shame. On check in please present your Best Western Rewards number to our staff and if you have booked direct...

Sadly only a one night stay, but a very comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and modern fittings, quality fittings. Very nice. So now this review wants 200 words, but I'm not one to waffle on so hopefully the space has now been filled!!!

The Ballarat Suites are beautifully set out and furnished. Easy to get to. Very quiet rooms. Check in and out is extremely easy and friendly. Very clean rooms. I have no problems with any requests. Close proximity to some restaurants. Close to Sovereign Hill. I would highly recommend staying at this lovely establishment.

We are very thankful for your recommendation! We are one of the newest motels here in Ballarat and conveniently located opposite Sovereign Hill and in close proximity to the Wildlife Park, M.A.D.E and the Observatory. We're also a short stroll to the Mercure Convention Centre and beautiful restaurants. Let's hope you get to stay here again. ;)

Great Accommodation and friendly staff and at the end of a very long day that's all you need!! A plus for me was that I had spent a terrible night in a very noisy motel in Horsham and they gave me one of the quietest rooms in the place, and a very good night sleep followed.

Motel advertises a restaurant but it has been closed and used by the owners as a lounge room, the handicapped spaces are unavailable for guests (used by a local radio station and the owner), other parking is VERY tight. Most rooms up steep stairs (no lift), room was clean, bed ok. Spa bath is so deep its a safety risk,...

Hi Lyn, thank you for taking the time to add your comments and concern to a TripAdvisor review. With the re branding of the Best Western International logo we are awaiting new signage for our motel and the restaurant part will be taken off the new sign because as you pointed out we no longer have a restaurant on site....

We stayed at the Best Western Ballarat Suites Ballarat in January 2017 with a last minute deal. The room was on the 1st floor and was clean, spacious and quiet. On arrival the check in was quick and efficient and the staff were more than helpful with local knowledge. After a good night sleep we left the following morning but...

Room was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. Lovely newly renovated bathroom. Arrived back to our room late after a function and were very disappointed that there was no parking available within the complex and we had to park our car out on the highway.

Aren't the bathrooms just lovely and modern in the Superior King Suites, we are glad to hear you enjoyed these rooms. Unfortunately not every guest complies with our 1 car park space per unit and at times extra cars are snuck into our car park which is disappointing for our other guests. Luckily there is parking available all around our...

We really enjoyed our stay at your motel. Bed was very comfortable and room very quiet. It was nice to have a couch to sit on and the spa bath looked very inviting but we just didn't have time to use it. We will certainly recommend your motel to others and hopefully we will be able to return soon.

Honestly, it is very hard to fault the Best Western Plus Ballarat Suites - hence the 5-star rating.

After a wonderful and easy initial interaction with the lovely front desk employee/manager, I was surprised with the large...
