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

Friendly staff, clean and well presented room. Well equipped kitchen. Loved the Nespresso machine in the foyer! Good location, walking distance to main street and shopping centre. Free parking available on site.

We stayed here for 1 night but would have stayed longer if we could. We were arriving late so reception organised for the key to be left out for us. Room was very clean and spacious with a large bathroom. Kitchenette was well equipped. Would definitely stay again.

I was very impressed with the size of the room. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and I thought it was very good value for the price. We were given a late checkout of midday for free and the booking process was extremely easy. The receptionist was lovely. She was stuck on an international phone call and wasn't able... More

Great location within walking distance to eateries and main street. Very clean apartment, comfortable beds, living area a little on the small side for a 2-bed apartment. Friendly and helpful staff at reception. Would definitely return on our next visit to Ballarat.

I am a regular visitor to Ballarat and always ask my company to book me here. Staff are always welcoming which is nice after a long day. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Central location also makes it for easy access for places for dinner or breakfast the next morning.

If you are after a comfortable but no frills apartment then I would recommend staying here. Quest Ballarat is typical of what you expect from this chain. Our room was generally clean, a little dark but met our requirements for a one night stay.
