I stayed just the one night on business. I had an executive King room by the pool which was nice and had been modernised. Staff and restaurant food was nice and fair priced. I was a little surprised for a cold town and being winter that the bed only had a summer quilt and no electric blanket and a thin... More

The staff we great & very helpful. The rooms very tidy & clean. However the furniture is mismatched & lost in the late seventies. I was travelling with my 83 year old mother who need no stair or shower over the bath or anything along those lines. He room was on the ground floor . I could park right out... More

The decor is very out dated but we had the best stay we have ever had. Went with our 4 year old and we didn't want to leave. Restaurant was amazing. Looking forward to going back when the Reno's are done. Staff 10/10. Lovely service.

My stay at Mid City was superb. I found the staff to be helpful. They answered all my questions accurately. My room was cleaned well. Free Wi-Fi was also available. The rooms themselves were modern and sleek. I have not slept better in my time travelling country Victoria and staying in motels. The only flaw was that the TV was... More

Arrived after midnight but I preadvised the hotel and made arrangements to collect my key without any hassels at all! As a very weary driver, this made our arrival stress free and meant we could slide straight in to clean sheets without delays or hassles. The rooms were clean and warm, a little dated but not too bad. After a... More

I am writing this on behalf of my Dad who is dying of cancer. He has stayed at this hotel a lot during his treatment in Ballarat and the consideration that he has been shown is nothing short of amazing. Kylie should be commended on the compassionate way Dad's bookings were handled and the level of customer service that has... More

Located right in the Ballarat CBD, you can't get a better location than this older style motel. Rooms are simply furnished and comfortable. Parking was fine and the area was very quiet with no traffic noise at all. Very reasonably priced motel.

We found the room just average. Absolutely no information in room whatsoever. Parking extremely poor, we had to move our car for another guest to get theirs out. Couldn't even find anything in room re getting a cab to our destination and as an inter-stater was not sure of proceedures there. Definitely would not stay there again.

This motel is very central, the rooms are large and clean, as are the en suites, breakfast was great and the dinning room has large windows overlooking the street scape. But the best is the staff all very helpful and friendly, will go back next time without hesitation.

The rooms are of adequate size. The hotel is located in the centre of Ballarat and easy to find. Close to the main shopping precinct and restaurants. Wonderful shower unfortunately the cleaner had forgotten to replace the soap and a half bottle of moisturiser was left in the room. Bed was comfortable. Air conditioner remote control took a bit of... More
