« Noisy »

The apartments creak and make A LOT of noise. I could hear noise from other apartments as well. The noise traffic from Main Road could be heard all night. The apartments need to be insulated from noise.

« Great accomodation »

Loved everything about it. Kids had so much fun and bedding arrangement is great. Spacious and accommodative staff.

Clive J. Couples - 14/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Comfortable and great location with a very good restaurant. For us the only negative was the bathroom which needed a makeover.

« Always our favourite place to stay »

We were made fully welcome from the experience of our booking through to our leaving. Breakfast was magnificent, the room comfortable, the price reasonable. (The one thing that could be improved. The heater was not warm enough ) and although we stayed in the same room when they were first built, it and laundry were looking at little worn)

« Ballarat Overnight »

Rooms clean, bed comfortable, breakfast very good with enough variety of food to suit most people We were in the wing of rooms 29-39 and we weren't able to park directly outside our room, so be aware that you may have to make 2-3 trips to the car to load and unload your cases. About 5 min walk from Sovereign Hill entrance and close t cages and restaurants.

« Touring Victoria, one night stay »

Beautiful grounds overlooked by a cosy bar with fireplace. We enjoyed talking with the friendly bar staff. The restaurant served wonderful dinners and the buffer breakfast was a treat. The room was exceptionally clean, like new.

« Comfortable stay with very good service »

Stayed here twice in the last two weeks and have to say this is a great country hotel. Excellent service by all, great breakfasts and for winter a couple of very hot fireplaces to sit and drink beside. If in Ballarat stay here!

« Quite good. »

Our room was ok except fot the tired bathroom. The grout between the tiles on the floor was disgusting. It was either dirty or very aged. Our experience in Billy's restaurant was very good and our waiter was great (mature tall man ). The grounds were very pretty and well cared for.

« Great Stay »

The Mecure is a great hotel in Ballarat. It is well located and has excellent facilitates . The rooms were warm, spacious and suitable for families. Rooms were a little dated but the friendly and professional staff well and truly made up for this.

Very happy with the stay including using the bar facilities and the breakfast. All first class. The restaurant staff during breakfast and the very helpful bar staff were way above average.The fine facilities and appearances of the property were refreshing after a long drive.

« Just ok. »

Reception was neutral, not particularly welcoming. The room clean, bedding comfortable but air conditioning not functioning very well with the cold nights. Brick paving quite uneven and exrernal lighting could be improved . Bar staff friendly and there was a good selection of wine. Restaurant quality was relatively good value and staff efficient and courteous.

« Reliable service as usual. »

Lovely lady on reception for check in. Comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Breakfast staff were attentive although there was nothing else required as the choice was very varied.

Michelle L. Business - 13/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review
« Worst breakfast ever Would not recommend »

Check in was good, evening meal was good value and great flavour. Breakfast was terrible worst I have ever experienced. Bacon burnt as in black as were the tomatoes. Seemed and effort to get poached eggs rather than the scrambled supplied in warming unit.
