“A fantastic find in Ballarat”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We loved this spacious and comfortable apartment. An excellent kitchen with virtually everything you require, enabled us to entertain easily. Excellent heating and air distribution was a perfect foil to the very cold Ballarat winter. Highly recommended for short or long stays. Undercover parking is a fantastic bonus.

Jayde was extremely attentive to our requirements, and the guest information folder was most helpful, with good advice and recommendations.

Location is fantastic for easy walking access to city, lake, and historic precinct.

We will certainly stay there again and have already recommended it to other friends and relatives.

Stayed here over a very cold weekend in the middle of July. Had to turn up the heating, but it worked well and kept us warm. Really appreciated the extra blankets and throws. Apartment was clean and spacious and well located - in walking distance to several restaurants and the lake. Under cover parking appreciated. Would have appreciated some breakfast provisions, given the cost of the apartment. Keypad entrance not that easy to use.

Room Tip: Upstairs was good.

I agree with the recent reviews - nice big living room with cosy fire. Well set up kitchen with good facilities. Family of five fit in 2 bedrooms easily. We stayed for 2 nights visiting Ballarat and Bendigo. It was really cold this time of year but the apartment warmed up nicely with the gas fire going. Cute street too, near a great coffee shop only about 100m away where the Lake is.

We stayed here during the middle of winter and the apartment was great with a nice gas-powered log fire.

The apartment is very modern with great facilities, free wi-fi, Foxtel and Apple TV on a huge big screen TV.

It had everything we needed, and the kids loved the board games in the room for when it was wet outside.

Situated within 300 metres of Lake Wendouree was perfect for morning walks, and it's only a short drive into the centre of town and the other attractions in Ballarat.

The bathroom is nice, although the water saving shower head made get decent water pressure a problem. A spa in the bathroom would have been great, given there was room for it in the bathroom.

Overall this is a great place, and we would stay there again.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor, but older guests may wish to request a ground floor room.

Great to read your family enjoyed the board games we recently placed in all the apartments , we also have put additional floor rugs and rubber stoppers under all chairs upstairs and tables as this will deaden any sound from upstairs , yes we are also drawing up plans to include a second bathroom with spa baths in 2 apartments . 2015 will see lwla upgrade our offering to our guests as requested .

We spent three nights at Lake Wendoureee Apartments with our grandchildren on the school holidays. We loved the place! The apartment was very comfortable, warm, and fresh. Webster Street is a beautiful tree lined street close to the lake and a short easy drive to the city centre. Ballarat was cold - we were cosy! I enjoyed apartment living, the views from the large windows and the comfortable beds. It's easy to recommend!

Jayde was warm, friendly and helpful from the start making the booking process effortless.

The minute we walked into Apartment 5 we all said "wow"...very homely and inviting with the gas log fire already on making it feel warm and "toasty" as we came in from the icy Ballarat air.

The best and extraordinarily well equipped kitchen we have ever encountered away from home. The inclusion of the recipe book was very thoughtful and helped with the dinner planning for the night.

The beds and covers were very comfortable and the general apartment ambience will mean that we will certainly stay there again when visiting Ballarat. I would thoroughly recommend LWLA to any traveller.

From the moment we spoke to Jayde to book our weekend away in Ballarat on a whim, we knew we had made the right choice. She was incredibly accommodating, helpful and warm. And Apartment 6 was brilliant. We bought our (small) dog for the weekend, and our 5 yo, and they both had a ball. Ballarat is one of those places you think of avoiding in winter, but this apartment was cosy from the moment we walked in. There's a gas fire place, simple to operate, which warms up the entire apartment in moments. Each bed has electric blankets on them (not that we used them), and the beds are some of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. It was like being in a cocoon! The kitchen is brilliantly appointed with everything you need if you were going to cook for yourself. The place was spotless. There's loads of books to read, a CD player and a giant flat screen TV. Everything's easy to operate....a rarity...and everything worked! The location is the best in Ballarat. The gorgeous, tree-lined street has some stunning homes, and Lake Wendouree is a 2 minute walk away. Going for an early morning family walk through the mist on our first morning was so enjoyable, topped off with a delish breakfast at Racer's cafe at the end of the street. We spent the day at Sovereign Hill - a 5 minute drive away and perfect time to go, before school holidays but cold enough to keep the crowds away (our little secret!). Getting back home to the gorgeous apartment for a warm bath and a glass of red, before another 2 minute drive to the George Hotel for a family dinner topped off a brilliant day. We didn't want to leave...and the 12pm check out meant we got to enjoy this home away from home a little longer. Can't recommend it highly enough. Thanks Jayde - we will absolutely be back!
