Very pleased with the size and overall features in our king room, and the beds and pillows were amazingly comfortable. Mini Bar offerings were comprehensive. But were disappointed to find that there were no electric blankets (in Ballarat- it's VERY cold!!) and also there was only one extra blanket. The reverse cycle heating was therefore required all night, and it... More

I stayed here a while ago when I was in Ballarat for work. Service was polite but not overly friendly. Room was not very clean and heater make a loud noise all night. Bed eas comfortable which was some consolation. You get what you pay for.

A good place to stay. I wouldn't say a great place. Two things for me. I wouldn't say it's great value for the money and the restaurant wasn't open till 30 mins after it was supposed to be open. It is well located in central Ballarat and the rooms were quiet.

My mum bought a puppy which needed collecting from the breeder near Ballarat. We stayed (in separate rooms) overnight at the Mid City. You can tell from the outside that this is a motel built in the 60's or 70's. It has that retro vibe to it, but in saying that, the rooms we stayed in had received a recent... More

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
