Exceptional”

We arrived on a drizzly afternoon in Ballarat, but the rain and mist only seemed to add to the ethereal air surrounding the beautiful grounds, gardens and lake of the property. Check in was brief and professional and we were surprised to find our spacious, modern and luxurious room. The bathroom was impressive and the indulgent king sized bed was bliss. Breakfast buffet left us full and contented , checkout was friendly and the 11am checkout was much appreciated. Overall very happy will definitely return.

Quiet, peaceful, off the highway”

I have stayed here a few times and it is always quiet, rooms are good, staff are friendly and helpful, and the restaurant on site is pretty good too. Great food and wine and the staff there are great too. It's a great place to stay where you could have a couple drinks with dinner and not have to worry about driving back to your room.

Perfect location if visiting Sovereign Hill”

The hotel is located only a few minutes walking distance from Sovereign Hill, so if you're visiting this living museum, Mercure Ballarat is the perfect choice!! The staff were suoer friendly and helpful from the minute I walked into the hotel till the last moment. The room was clean, quie (off the road) and had everything I needed, such as tea kettle,, tea & instant coffee, safebox, TV, hair dryer and even a radio. The bed was super comfy, although the pillows were a bit flat for me. I didn't try breakfast there but as far as I know it was continental breakfast. There are a few cafes and restaurant in walking distance from the hotel, and also a petrol station.

A great spot close to Sovereign Hill”

We had a great stay and the location was superb. Check in staff weren't great and couldnt tell us anything about the activities they had going for kids, was just a bit strange as they had a kids room operating with food and entertainment but she didnt know where it was or when it started etc. We ended up eating elsewhere...but had she have given us more info we might have actually booked in. Was not a very inspiring check in process but the stay was great. The man at check out didnt ask had we enjoyed our stay at all, just took the key, checked our bill and said he hoped we had a nice day! Def could improve the check in/check out experience in my opinion!
