My experience at Mid City Hotel! I had booked for 2 days & finally stayed a week! I found Kylie & her family, very friendly & kind. Motel is a little dated, but very clean! Modest prices, but then I was not looking for luxury, just a comfortable stay! Fabulous housekeepers, any little thing done for you, room stocked every...

The rudest receptionist I have ever come across, would not recommend this place to anyone. Kylie should reconsider her career choice as she is clearly unaware that she works in a service industry, being rude and abusive to people will only lead to bad reviews.

We stayed in room 1, the Executive King Suite. This was a huge 2 roomed space and was clean and tidy. The furniture looked alike it was placed awkwardly in the room, a lazy-susan had no purpose. The bed was as through we were sleeping 'down hill', we spun the pillows around and slept at the foot end. Also the...

A 1960/70's hotel located in the heart of Ballarat. Room size is fair and the bed relatively comfortable but the furnishings are from a generation ago and look their age. The shower was clean and in good shape but the temperature control was very fickle. The room had a fridge but no microwave. Efficient wall mounted A/C. Quiet room with...

Booked a family room with queen and 2 singles. Great central location. The 1960s facade is interesting but unfortunately it continues in the room which other than carpet curtains and loo hasn't been updated. As others mentioned, the flat screen is small for a big room for 4. It was clean and had what we needed but the plaster was...

Stayed three nights recently. Found service to be outstanding from arrival to departure. Room very clean although a little dated, but this is not an upmarket venue. Very commendable breakfast in dining room (could have had it brought to our room) with hot items cooked "just right" and terrific selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, juices, toasts and jams etc. Bed...

Convenient central location and a spacious room (for 3 people in our case) with everything you'd reasonably expect. Friendly and efficient reception staff. The only minor annoyance was that WiFi in the room areas was broken when we were there.

Stayed here for a night in the 26th November. When booking in I felt very sorry for the lovely receptionist. The customer before us was SO rude to her and she was very composed. However the bathroom in our room needed a serious upgrade. The TV was tiny and the remote control did not work. Probably needs new batteries. And...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1971, the Mid City Ballarat offers rooms with LCD TVs, free WiFi, free newspapers and access to free on-site parking in an off-street, secure area with video surveillance. For your relaxation and enjoyment there is an outdoor pool and a restaurant. Mid City Ballarat is within a 10-minute walk from Ballarat Train Station, Art Gallery of Ballarat, Her Majesty's Ballarat and a range of clubs, shops and cafes. Sovereign Hill and Lake Wendouree are both a 5-minute drive away while Kryal Castle is a 14-minute drive away. The air-conditioned accommodation options include private rooms, suites and apartments. Each has a refrigerator, bed linen and a private bathroom with a shower. Self-contained apartments with a fully equipped kitchen are available. The new restaurant "Aureate" is fast becoming the place to eat for both traveling epicureans and those locals who prefer to dine rather than just eat. Our amazingly well credentialed chef's bring modern European style dishes, with a lean toward seafood to Ballarat, and they do so extremely well. With a every growing international wine list and an friendly, efficient service team Aureate Restaurant is looking golden. ... more   less
