    Room was excellent

    I booked well in advance of our stay using creditcard as a surity and money was debited immediately!!!!

    Fabulous

    Size of rooms were great

    No facilities for young children to use ie pool, play room. There was a large group of young school children staying on the night we were there and they spent all night running around the motel making a lot of noise unsupervised on the night because they had no where else to be contained - apart from with their parents who obviously weren't interested in the job!

    Excellent place to stay with a very good restaurant / bar attached.

    Meals were a bit on the pricey side, but were of good quality and served by attentive and polite staff.

    Layout, facilities and general attractiveness. Also, proximity to a very nice hotel. (PS: Just a thought about the previous question. None of those words could be said to 'describe' anything, so it's hard to answer the question. You might think about choosing adjectives like 'friendly', 'relaxing', 'convenient', 'attractive', 'luxurous'. Or you might ask 'What words come to mind when you think about Best Western Lake Inn?' as a lead-in to the options you've given.)

    Nothing. It was all good.

    It‘s a very comfortable place to stay, and the hotel are near a big lake, it is really nice

  • 6.2
    Good

    The room was large, clean and well stocked (ie kettle for coffee & tea facilities, glasses for wine). The bathroom was large, the shower could fit 2 and was well appointed with large mirror, hairdryer & spare shampoo/conditioner.

    Two main factors made our stay uncomfortable. Firstly, Our first impressions of the room (followed later by our sleep) were greatly let down by the double bed. The bedspread & discomfort of the bed strongly suggested that it was well past it's use by date. It was an immediate let down when entering the room, as the room size & price would easily accommodate a queen bed. The lack of sleep we both suffered was also due to the seemingly inadequate sound insulation. Granted it was a busy night (Saturday), but hearing conversations of drunk customers unable to use their key card in the courtyard below was astounding. Conversations & heavy footfalls up the stairs sounded like they were literally inside the room.

    The cleanliness & comfort.

    The man behind reception was quite rude, especially regarding the fact that I'd booked through Booked.net - not even a necessary conversation!!

    Street rooms can be noisy if windows are open.

    Fabulous

    The room was a great size.. Not small at all. Good location close to the centre of Ballarat.

    Food was pretty overpriced I thought, particularly breakfast provisions.

    A good spacious and clean room. No smoking on site very welcome. Internet worked well and good value for money!

    Car space outside room taken by someone else. Had to park in disabled spot which is a no-no but had no choice.
