Score from 240 reviews Very good
Location was great, very quiet. Rooms are very spacious, clean and modern with a huge bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. Staff very helpful and obliging. Would recommend Ballarat Lake Inn.
Very comfortable, convenient. Roomy bathroom too.
Only thing missing was nice sharp knife to cut fruit and cheese to enjoy with a glass of wine.
location, helpful staff,close to the lake,only 10 steps to the pub, cleanliness, and the spa, also having room serviced each day.
no complaints at all
Very big room, clean and comfy.
The room was excellent. Couldn't complain.
We tried a few drinks at the bar before going out. We had been travelling and some nibbles would have been nice, nothing until 5.30. Plus the beer kept going frothy when the batman tried to poor it. I like to drink from pots with handles, you only had 2.
Unfortunately the spa was broken
Very clean, well presented room, friendly staff. FREE WIFI. Good location.
Parking was tight, hard to get your car out if it is a larger vehicle when the car park was full.
Big room and bathroom, very clean, bed was comfortable. Staff at reception were very friendly.
As we were attending a function near by it was perfect for not having to travel too far between reception place and accommodation.
Spacious. Comfortable bed although electric blankets a bit complicated. Fiddlyto put on. Excellent food in corner hotel.
Sunken outlet in bathroom floor...uneven floor could cause a trip or fall.
loved how big the room was and how comfortable I felt, would definitely stay again, liked how close shops and cafes were
would've liked it if that there was meals available i.e breakfast menu
Spacious and clean suite, set up for writing as well as lounging.
Leaking tap at cistern.
Polite staff and clean rooms
Room situated directly in front of stairs could hear the guests pulling their suitcases when going up or coming down the concrete stairway. Towels deep dark green and poor wet absorption.
Location was good. Close to the hospital. Excellent room that catered for the disabled.
Needed to move a bit of furniture around so the second bed had a side table and a reading lamp.
I enjoyed the location and walk to the lake. The room was very clean. I will stay at the Ballarat Lake Inn again.
I wish the room had a microwave to heat food.
The location was great, close to the lake, main street for shopping, good walking along lake. The room was of a good size, clean and well appointed, bathroom was a good size with a good shower etc. Rooms were quiet and the bed lovely and comfortable.
When we checked in the female staff member appeared unenthusiastic and unhelpful. When I asked if she could recommend any restaurants, she said there was a pub next door. When I asked if it was a good place to eat her reply was unenthusiastic. We didn't go there but rather searched the internet for a restaurant with good reviews.
Very large lounge area, comfortable separate bedroom & fantastic ensuite. Very friendly staff
One side of the electric blanket didn't work.
Restaurant on site
John-Melbourne Position with lake and oval so close excellent. In reality , no real negatives to report as the room was very comfortable
The staff was very friendly and the breakfast very good
The bed was terrible simple as that they need to update there beds
Cleanliness, spacious, decor, close to lake, close to supermarket, pharmacy, restaurant next door, breakfast in room option, room service available
Wifi was patchy and at times slow, this property not Best Western now, so could not access any discounts. No late checkout although clearly not busy or fully booked. Was our ruby anniversary which we advised by email however no mention made (impersonal). Needs wall panel electric heating as well as the Aircon heating. Two levels so make sure when you book you have the level you need (steps). There were no cable stations on tv.
Professional and warm welcome. Nothing too much trouble.
Size of room, the bathroom was wonderful! Location was ideal for our purpose. It was quiet. 'Michael' was polite and very helpful when we accidentally wiped our swipe card late Saturday night.
Greeting on arrival was very offhand (I understand there were 'Locum' caretakers there that weekend). The pillows were too high/hard.
