We stayed in a large one bedroom apartment with a balcony Saturday night. I spent some time here when the building was a school and was amazed at the transformation while still retaining hints of the past. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the room was contemporary , warm, spotlessly clean, well appointed , quiet and really, really comfy.... More

Great central location, good size apartments, nice and quiet (plus warm). Staff were very helpful and nothing was a problem from checkin to check out. I would recommend if you are looking for somewhere with self-catering this place was ideal.

The Quest Apartments in Dawson St Ballarat would have to be the best I have ever stayed in. The building I believe was once a noted private school of the city. The conversion has be done tastefully and the rooms are of ample size. As with other Quest Apartments I have stayed in everything that is needed for a protracted... More

Our visit was a get to know Ballarat for a potential relocation spot. Quest's brilliant location was walking distance to the railway station, art gallery and historic central Ballarat. Its building is a former convent school and retains some original architectural features; tessellated tile lobby floor, and walled front entry garden with grotto. Our two bedroom ground floor suite at... More

A former convent, the building has been fitted out nicely but retaining some original theming. Staff were a bit hit and miss and they forgot to make up our sofa bed then closed reception early for a public holiday so we couldn't sort it out. No free wifi either which is a bit mean.

Stayed for 3 nights with my wife and 3 kids (6 weeks, 2yo and 3yo) The room was smaller than expected and the additional bed we were paying $40 p/night for was just the fold out couch. Sound insulation was good which helped with the kids playing loudly and the location was fantastic. But wasn't anything outstanding to rave about.... More
