3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The room I stayed in was nice, roomy and modern enough. The gym was pretty decent with a treadmill, elliptical machine, rowing machine and 2 strengthening machines (as well as air con and a TV which was a nice touch). There was some trouble with checking in as we were a big group, some confusion occurred and it seemed like... More

Fantastic stay at Quest Ballarat with excellent facilities and knowledgeable staff. Reasonably priced and value for money. Check in was fast and the local information was greatly appreciated. Rooms had been pre warmed for our arrival during winter period which was a delight! Would definitely stay with quest Ballarat again.

Excellent room and facility. One great failure was no lift and 2 floors to carry all baggage and no help. Heritage building BUT a warning should be on line BEFORE booking as would not return. Internals are wide and spacious and staff nice.

I stayed here for a conference for 3 nights and am a solo woman. The room allocated was clean and neat and had a kettle, microwave and toaster and a long narrow window at the top of the wall so there was no view at all. Why do motel/hotel staff do this to women? This would have been one of... More

I like the location as it is a short walk to good restaurants and cafes. The rooms are quiet and very comfortable and overall a nice place to stay. Once I arrive at a hotel I prefer not to have to take the car out and at Quest I can do that.

Close to CBD, good price, good size rooms, always welcoming on arrival. Other facilities such as courtyard and gym available, but have never used. Parking is very neat and easy to use. Just a great location to stay and easy to find.
