« Friendly Staff, Great Hotel »

My last stay at this hotel was my second stay, We had great accommodation, both Dinner and Breakfast was terrific. The hotel is easy to find in a central location and is in a very nice setting. All Staff that We dealt with were great as well.

« Very dirty Appartment. »

I have stayed for a conference and because of a late booking I was offered an appartment to stay in. Sadly the whole appartment looked very dirty, with loads of cobwebs, filthy windows, not emptied bins, stained sofa, dirty carpet, smelly front room.

« Comfortable room and bed and very good meals »

I was quite late arriving and appreciated the A/C being turned on for a very warm evening and that I could take my meal to the room. The meal was excellent and good value. The breakfast was fresh and generous and good value.

« Pleasant »

Complimentary bottle of water in my room was only 3/4 full ? if it had been opened by a previous guest. I had paid for breakfast in my booking as apart of the special offer, when I arrived at breakfast I wasasked if I wanted my breakfast charged to my room. When I explained I had paid for breakfast with my accomdation I was told no breakfast was not included in my booking. In the end I didn't end up paying for my breakfast as I had booked and paid for two rooms and the other room didn't end up being used.

Quick, easy friendly check-in, room a bit dark and boring, but clean, and location great for a run, Sovereign Hill, peaceful. Breakfast was great and I gym adequate. Plenty of parking and quick check out. Friendly staff

« Always relaxing and comfortable place to stay »

From the ease of check-in to the very comfortable bed and buffet breakfast the next morning, my grand daughter and I had a wonderful stay.

« Noisy »

We booked a court yard room with a king and a single bed. We were put into an apartment room. It was dated and not overly appealing- it was very clean however. The apartment was right an the main road and was so noisy - the road noise was very loud and made it very difficult to sleep. We would not book a room again. The reason we have an a serve score and not less is because the restaurant food was nice and the staff were very friendly.

« Inconsistent but otherwise good »

I stay at your hotel each week. The staff are friendly. I was ‘downgraded’ this week without warning which is very disappointing. I made all of my bookings for a superior room at the start of the year yet when I checked in I was told my room was unavailable due a conference booking it and I was given a lesser quality room. There was no forewarning of this. I give plenty of notice with all of my bookings and if this was an issue it should have been foreseeable. I also should not have been sent emails stating that all of my bookings of the superior room were confirmed when clearly they either were not or sudden ‘unexpected’ changes can occur. I find this poor given I stay literally every week at your hotel.

« Excellent Staff »

I stay at hotels and apartments over half a year with work and can i say the customer service at the Mercure in Ballarat completely puts to shame the majority of other hotels. Nothing was to much trouble and for a well earned family Holliday we thought the place was perfect.

« We needed a one night stop over and this was perfect with kids »

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment with our children and also ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. The vouchers for drinks are a nice touch encouraging us to use the restaurant, bar. We will definitely stay here again.

« Ballarat »

Good location near city and facilities. Lack of vegetarian options on the bistro menu although the website seemed to indicate that a vegetarian menu was available. However, when 'pushed', the chef came up with excellent ideas for a vegetarian main course..

« Great hotel with beautiful setting. »

Friendly staff, with nice garden landscapes . Enjoyed pre dinner drinks and good dinner. Staff friendly. Room Was clean and good bed but could do with more bench space, need table and chairs and two chairs not one. Windows in our room were disappointingly high and could not look out. Felt like your in a cell. Dinner was ok but not really fresh and a little sad. Overall though was satisfactory and had worse dinners before.
