      • Couple
        5.8

        Room was in need of desperate repair, cracked/gross shower, water was getting behind shower screen making it mouldy, towel rack on sink broken, screw in switch for air con - looked poor, missing switch - hole in switchboard next to bed, looks poor, curtains very musty and stale - needed a good wash. Cups and glasses dirty with coffee stains and hair in coffee cup. Kettle - Gross. Looked in the kettle to fill it up, it had scum in the bottom, obviously hadnt been cleaned for a very long time.

        I was running late and the staff stayed until I arrived. I received a phone call to confirm I was still on my way and better directions to find them. My breakfast was organised and my room was brilliant.

        The run down condition of the rooms THE NON CLEANLINESS OF THE POOL THE ABILITY OF OTHER GUESTS TO ACCESS YOUR ROOM WITH THEIR KEY

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        Excellent food in the restaurant.

        Slightly "tired" look about the rooms and bathrooms.

      • Family with children
        6.2

        It comfortably held the family, and the nearby shops were quite conveniently situated. Our daughter approved of the pool.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Booking information states wifi throughout, but experience and hotel literature makes it clear sitting in reception is best place for strong useable signal. This was disappointing because the hotel was chosen partlly for its Wifi Ballarat is notoriously bad for wifi.

        location, car parking

        not much room for hanging towels in bathroom

      • Older travelers
        4.2

        Our room was comfortable but it was quite out dated and a had a very cold feel about it not a lot of natural light. Given the price we paid I suppose what we got was in the price range. Overall a clean and very basic room

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        The staff were helpful & polite. The bed was very comfortable.

        The place needs a facelift and to be brought up to the 20th century. The room was very big.

      • Couple
        9.2

        The women who helped us at the front desk, I believe her name was Wendy. Probably the most hospitable person we have encountered in our travels... She made the comfort inn bell tower 100% !

      • Family with children
        6.2

        The late check out if needed.

        It felt old & a bit run down.
