Fire place, chandelier, mood lighting and a double spa, can a stay be any more perfect? As a last minute stop over, the Heritage Inn was a wonderful place to settle in for the night. The concierge went the extra mile to help me locate a place of interest AND ensured I stayed dry in the rain with a complimentary... More

Heritage Executive room, sans spa, overlooking Lydiard Street was spacious, solidly furnished and well-appointed with gas log fire, desk and microwave and toaster (but alas no coffee machine). Decor contemporary but sympathetic. Great location in centre of town and good-sized secure car park out the back. Double-glazed windows kept noise out but seemed, to me anyway, to give the room...

Having plans in Ballarat over the weekend and having never stayed there before we looked around for somewhere that looked pleasant and affordable. From the incredibly friendly and helpful staff to the fantastic location and sensational rooms, the Heritage surpassed all our expectations. We were impressed by the modern yet historically appropriate furnishings, the comfortable bed and the impressive leather... More

We stayed there over busy Anzac Day weekend having booked last minute. The room was small but quite classy and what I would consider very well priced for the best street in town, at just over $100 per night. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful but on checkout there seemed to be a lady in training who would refuse... More

We stayed the night here because we were going to a concert at the nearby Regent Theatre. Wow, what a great place! The central location makes it a perfect place to walk to anywhere in central Ballarat. The room was beautiful. Spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed and extremely quiet. We loved having the large leather sofa to relax on in between... More

No privacy as the windows face the walkway. Would not ever consider opening them due to security issues. No breakfast before 7 which would be a prerequisite for a high starred hotel I would have thought. Also you have to walk up two doors to go get it. There is no in-room breakfast service. Just a brekkie pack that isn't... More

We visit Ballarat once a year for business and have stayed in pretty much all of the central hotels. The Quality Inn on Lydiard is one of the better choices. They have off street parking which is good and the rooms are large, quiet and clean, ours,number 12, while fine, didn't have any external windows, just a large skylight and... More

The refurbishment of this building is top quality, with spacious rooms, a comfortable bed and excellent fittings and furnishings. Our room was incredibly quiet, no doubt due to the double brick walls, and street noise wasn't a problem. The location is excellent; next time we will take the train from Melbourne and walk from the station. Cafes and restaurants are... More

It was my forth stay in the hotel over the past twelve months. I keep coming back as this hotel is in the heart of Ballarat and is ideally located to all amenities. The rooms are clean, spacious and well serviced. The beds are comfortable, there is a desk if you need to work, etc. It has a parking on-site.... More

I stayed here with a friend for a night- we were up from Melbourne for an event in Ballarat. The facilities are nice- the rooms is spacious, the bathroom well set-up, and the staff are friendly. Our only gripe was that the ceiling lights in our room were incredibly dark- to get enough light in our room we had to... More
