“Still a great Motel in a great location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

Have stayed at this Motel on numerous occasions and have now enjoyed the experience with the new owners, Kylie and Mark. Very welcoming cheerful and polite. Another really nice and hot cooked breakfast. A pleasure to once again stay at Ballarat. Well done Kylie & Mark, keep up the good work.

Regards wendy & Ian.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

Rooms are very old
Bed was very uneven, felt very old. Could feel all the springs in the mattress.
Door to the bathroom was a sliding door which got stuck closed twice, took a lot of force to open.
Bathroom was filthy, cobwebs and dusty
Be warned this motel surrounds a pub which is popular with the young locals.
On Friday night music was thumping till 1.30am, once that ended the young hoons were beeping and doing burnouts outside the room.
We were unlucky enough to be at the front of the motel on the main street. It was extremely loud.
The decor is very old, the rooms have brick walls.

Stay at the comfort inn instead - my parents stayed here, rooms were lovely, it is at the otherside of the roundabout and it was clean, new and quiet away from noisy pubs.

Room Tip: Stay across the road at the comfort inn instead - much nicer.

The welcome was friendly and the family room was a good size, with a double and two single beds. There was allocated parking for each room.
The room was nicely decorated. There was a kitchen area with microwave,toaster, kettle and sink.
There was a small table with two chairs.
It was in a convenient location and we stayed there after visiting Sovereign Hill. We left early for Avalon Airport which took aboout 2 hours.
It was one of the cheaper places we stayed and good value for money.
If we were in the area again we would definitely go back.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2011

Have spent several nights here over the years and although the rooms are good they can be very noisy as the motel is next door to a tavern. The present owners of the Battlers Tavern have taken the place from a young rowdy filled place to a more friendly food orientated pub it still can be a tad noisy on certain nights and cyour rooms a right next door.

Room Tip: choose one at the rear of property.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2010

We stayed for one night and chose it based on previous reviews. Taking the advice we booked room 7 and were not disappointed. I like the set out with the shower/toilet seperate to the vanity basin and plenty of hanging space. It was a very welcoming, comfortable and clean room. Bed was great and we had no noise whatsoever other than a couple of self important gentlement who chose to stand outside our room near the BBQ and carry on a conversation at the top of their voices. Thankfully it didn't last long and it wasn't very late at that stage. Slept very well. The motel is in a top location and we ate at a great little Indian restaurant. Historic buildings and the mall are only a short stroll. Would totally recommend Best Western Bakery Hill Motel.
