Underwhelming Experience

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Donna M. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Unfortunately there is not much to like about our stay - the room is small and dated, there is no bench space in the bathroom, the blinds are old and ratty and do not block out the light coming from the all night outside lights, you are at the mercy of the Mercure TV platform and cannot plug in an external USB - the cost for movies is an exorbitant $35 per day ! On the plus side the staff and buffet breakfast were outstanding.

A lovely friendly home away from home

John M. Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

This is a great place. All went well with drinks, a warm fire, dinner and breakfast. A word of advice please ensure that staff do book the type of room you ask for and place the detail on file! This is the second time I have booked a room with two beds and it was not initially supplied. All was good reception fixed it for me, thanks.

Excellent stay

Lyn Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a one night stay and the gardens surrounding the units were just springing into flower and were beautiful. We found the room and bed comfortable. The bathroom had quality products but unfortunately for us there was no hot water for a shower due to the work being done on the building. We were compensated for this.

Dear Lyn, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay with us at Mercure Ballarat. Please accept our apologies for the hot water issue. THis was out of our control due to works by the local water authority. We do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again. Sincerely, Simon Monk General Manager
