        Comfortable and Cute

        We drove from Adelaide to attend a familt function in Melbourne. However decided to stay in Ballarat for ease of the return journey. We could not have chosen better !! Very comfortable and clean !! Our previous fur friend was welcome which was important to us and with Lake Wendoree a pleasant walk away, he too enjoyed his stay. Traci was awesome with contact information and her recommendation of the Eclectic Cafe was spot on ! Will stay again when in the area.

        5/5 Excellent

            Comfortable Cottage

            Good location, a couple of restaurants for breakfast, comfortable cottage.

            5/5 Excellent

              A great cottage

              Beautifully appointed older style cottage within a very short walk of the Lake. Quiet location, but only 3 minutes from Aldi and Bunnings, 5 minutes from Ballarat centre. Lots of local cafes close to the cottage. The kitchen definitely needs a couple of good size oven proof casserole dishes for microwave re heating, this was the only notable minus point for our stay at Cardigan Cottage.
