My friends and I stayed recently as we were attending a concert in Ballarat. We were very impressed with the rooms as they were very clean (we can be quite fussy around cleanliness!!) but we were all impressed with the rooms and would stay here again. Judy was extremely helpful and went out of her way to assist us with...

After we were not allowed to stay at another hotel in Ballarat as we had children, we made a last minute booking to stay at Menzies. I can only say that in the end we are amazingly happy with the change of venues, as the original motel had a surly and rude owner whilst we were immediately greeted warmly by...

Hello Dover56. Things often turn out for the best and we are pleased it did for you this time. It's great to know your particular room-type suited your needs. The second bedroom is ideal for children, isn't it? We will welcome your booking when you return to Ballarat later in the year, if not before. Thank you for the fabulous...

I did not have the opportunity to stay at this place as my confirmation email turned out not to be a confirmation. How naive I must be! I booked through a website at 3.10pm and received the confirmation email from the booking site. 4 hours later I had another email from The Menzies that they had received another booking within...

It is always disappointing when people turn straight to social media when aggrieved. Yes, we encountered a problem with the booking and the following is what was written by me, in part, to inform the person of the problem: Hello Alison.

Stayed here recently for 4 nights (have stayed here previously) and again were delighted. Room was very spacious and larger than most motel rooms (35sq m approx), more like an apartment.

We stayed overnight to visit the Bendigo Art Gallery and found this accommodation to be conveniently located to the centre of Ballarat. It is modern, clean and in a quiet location. The room is large with a kitchen area and the bathroom is a good size and much better appointed than most. Importantly too, the bed was very comfy. There...

Not our first trip to Ballarat, which we love, but our first time at the Quality Inn and were very happy with everything.

This fairly modern motel situated in Ballarat 'a Bakery Hill is clean, quiet and comfortable. The beds are especially luxurious. Management is pleasant and responsive. Although there are plenty of restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walk the onsite Asahi Japanese Restaurant is excellent.

I have to confess that I didn't like Ballarat, it seems an odd choice for a tour of Victoria, only saving grace is that it breaks up the drive back to the airport. The room service does not provide free coffee, really sad that you'd have to pay for coffee pods which I refused to do on principle . The...

Hi Rob. I am surprised at the nature of your review. We 'Ballaratians' believe our city to be the jewel of Victoria!
