Love ?? this property! You will too! It has everything and more. Beautifully furnished and the couches are oh so comfy, as is the bed! The smallest things that makes all the difference like an oil burner emitting a beautiful scent as you walk in the door to a real coffee maker with coffee pods! Jade has thought of EVERYTHING down to a blackboard with a welcome note. Very thoughtful and very welcoming. Just quietly do not go past this apartment. You'll be sorry!

Great for families

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at A1 Central Apartments over the Christmas holidays. It was a very peaceful place to relax, yet close to the Ballarat CBD and attractions. Not only was the utensils and amenities in good order, we found this apartment to be very homely. The extra touches of games boards and DVD player were very a very thoughtful inclusion. Thanks for attending to our small extra request of an extension cord when needed as well. Wishing you well for future bookings!
