"Spent one night at Bowden Cottage, as a base for Sovereign Hill. The cottage is very comfortable and well appointed, the beds are lovely and the house is very clean and quiet. The owner was great to deal with and extremely accommodating. Sovereign Hill impressed all of us and we had a great breakfast at L'Espresso in town. Would definitely recommend Bowden Cottage to anyone visiting Ballarat."

"We originally booked for two nights and stayed an extra two as it was so lovely. The house and gardens were spacious, clean and very comfortable. The kids loved it, we loved it. We definitely recommend it and would stay there again in a heartbeat. "

"Thank you so much for a short but relaxing stay! We are thrilled that we stumbled upon you fantastic accommodation and will certainly remember you for future stays. The kids settled in like home with the variety of toys and books, and the bubble bath was a hit. Friendly, accommodating, clean and comfortable. The little touches didn't go unnoticed."
