Good place to stay in Ballarat
Excellent stay. Shane was tops at making your stay comfortable. Laundry service is cheap and well done-thoughtful to not put clothes into dryer that were marked not for dryer. Breakfast, where included is good. More than enough and good choices. We walked the 5 minutes into the centre!
