We booked a 2 bedroom apartment which is a studio apartment and a one bedroom apartment with the adjoining door unlocked for co-access. This was great for our needs as it offered a lounge/dining area, two bathrooms, a kitchenette and privacy for adults and young ladies alike. While the rooms were of good size, we couldn't get fresh air due... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us gilly1259 - it is great to hear that our apartments were suitable for your needs. Given the history of our building (former convent), all apartments are slightly different in size and design, especially regarding window sizes and heights. I am sorry that you felt you were unable to... More

A quick overnight trip on the train from Melbourne for the Archibald Prize exhibition at the Ballarat Art Gallery. This place is walking distance from the train, and to the Art Gallery. It is off the main street but with easy access to it. My room was on the top floor - there are no lifts. There are no views... More

All joking aside the Quest makes you feel like home. The staff are very friendly and always ready to help. The apartment type rooms are well equipped and quiet. The convent reference refers to the hotel/apartment's former usage. The exercise facilities are numerous and in good order and the center outdoor court is good for BBQing and socializing. A nice...

Exactly what was needed. Clean, comfortable, the studio room upstairs spacious, always extra points for higher ceilings. Friendly staff. Very much to be recommended. If you want funky, not for you. If you want neat, well maintained and friendly (and don't mind a bit of a beige colour scheme), could be a good one.

Was very impressed from start to finish. Easy check-in, including a text message with simple after-hours instructions in case I was late. Room was well furnished with modern furniture that looked built to last - Didn't use the kitchen facilities in the room but had a sneak peak at the utensils and it was well equipped. The staff were so... More

fulfilled what we needed, bed comfy, no wifi but only one night we could cope. Got to wash and dry our clothes with detergent supplied. Tried for late checkout next day but it was a no go. Very handy to the main street. Old nunnery - interesting history.

Good size room nice and clean although room we stayed in could do with a new lounge. Given the price of the room a second TV point should be put in the bedroom.

I stayed 2 nights in the Quest Ballarat and really enjoyed my stay. My studio apartment was a good size - with comfortable bed, dining table, kitchen, and modern bathroom - everything I needed. It was also quiet, had free parking, and friendly staff.

It's not cheap, but it's very reasonable for what you get. We stayed in a 2-brm apartment which also had 2 bathrooms (one en-suite) and in-room laundry facilities. Kitchen was well-equipped and a pleasure to cook in. Spacious, spotlessly clean, beautifully central -- staff friendly & helpful.
