A very good facility. Clean and in good condition for Quest. But Quest need to move in this century where free WiFi is the norm. Business representatives require WiFi. It's free at McDonalds but Quest expect $5 - $20???

This Quest is situated in a beautiful building just an easy walk to everything. I have stayed in several Quest apartments and this was bay far the most beautiful complex.

Came for the Christmas in July in sovereign hill as the quest had a special offer including tickets. Was excellent and the accommodation was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm considering the temperature dropped to 1degree! Will always stay here when in Ballarat.

I am glad to have only booked for one night. The staff were minimally hospitable. Unlike most accommodation this day and age, the WiFi was not free. The room took hours to warm up to a level that one could work on my computer in without blanket/coat etc. It was a clean, pleasant and amenities of a good standard.

We loved this place. HUGE ROOMS and made to feel welcome straight away. Parking was hard later in the night, but other than that, I can't fault it! Clean and comfy beds. The location is great and you can walk to all the great restaurants Wonderful honeymoon stop ... should have stayed longer than two nights

Stayed here for business in a One Bedroom, was very clean and comfortable. Had everything you needed. Staff were very friendly, professional and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Have stayed at other places in town but this is the best by far and one of the better Quest around too.....was very impressed and will be back.
