I found my room to be very clean and comfortable. The large bed was bliss. The hotel staff were friendly, and there are many lovely restaurants and cafes in the area. As other reviewers have mentioned, noise can be an issue. I stayed on a Saturday night, and could hear loud music coming from a bar or nightclub nearby. Luckily,... More

The central location of this motel was the best feature. Unfortunately the rooms were very old and "tired". The bathroom was extremely old, with older-style tiles and amenities. The room had a heater which was great for the cold Ballarat winter weather. There were also electric blankets on the bed, which was comfortable. The let-down of this property is the... More

The rooms are old style, clean, comfortable with TV fridge and normal facilities. Outdoor pool and on siet parking for the ground and first floor units. On site bar and breakfast facilities, or just go... More

We spent the Queens Birthday weekend in Ballarat at the Mid City Motel. I found the room to be very outdated as far as decor however, it was warm which for Ballarat in the winter is important. We are a family of 4 and were accommodated in a double bed, single bed and rollaway. This made the room quite tight... More

Needed a stop over between Frankston and Adelaide and booked here through wotif. Got a small family room (queen and single) for $105. Room was clean, spacious with ensuite and bed was comfy. Couldn't ask for more. Friendly service at check in as well as at breakfast and check out. Would happily stay for longer if staying in Ballarat again... More

We had a group booking and from start to finish were totally looked after. The property is an older property but with that we found the rooms were very roomy. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Travelling with a group we did need extra requirements and the staff didn't hesitate to help us...from extra pillows to providing microwaves. The breakfasts... More

This was a nice place to stay for us as we needed a base in a central location while in Ballarat at that time looking for a property to rent. The room was nested in a corner location with a king size bed that was very comfortable and in a quiet location. Room was very clean with all one needs... More
