« Lovely place to stay »

Stayed for one night following late afternoon flight into Melbourne. Easy drive from Melbourne airport, approx 1 hr. Easy place to find opposite Sovereign Hill which is signposted on outskirts of Ballarat. Warm welcome, both room and bathroom were large and comfortable. Enjoyed a nice dinner in the dining room and pleased to see the wine list had several local wines available. Price for breakfast was steep considering what was available, there was no omlette and fresh coffee was an optional extra. That would be my only negative observation. The grounds are beautiful.

« Our 24th year of celebrating New Years Eve with friends »

Most relaxing in a real country atmosphere. All staff were very understanding and supportive of our needs. The only downside was that we thought the shower/bathroom area could have been a little cleaner (Tiles etc)

As always the stay at the Mercure is a five star experience. Due to Loyalty program have been upgraded which is always received gratefully. The staff are very welcoming and obliging.

« Convenient to Sovereign Hill and restaurants. »

The Mews is a nice group of apartments. But we found the unit itself pretty tired. Very creaky upstairs and the bed in the main bedroom was not comfortable - also tired and lumpy. The cleaning was good and the service was also good. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast and the service at breakfast time,

« Lovely place to stay »

Stayed for just one night but would have liked to stay longer. The place is very big and the rooms are in different areas well away from traffic noise. The room had everything that was required and even had a spar bath. I could not fault anything. From the look of the place from the front I thought the accommodation would be more expensive. Highly recommended.

« Mercure Ballarat »

This place is 'home away from home' the moment you make the phone call TO THE HOTEL to upon entering to check in and check out. Jason, Keith and the others who roll the red carpet out for us are an amazing group of people including the Restaurant staff. Staying with them on way thru to Melb is so convenient and enjoyable as we break the trip from Nhill ie 3 hrs drive then we enjoy a Continental B'fast next morning to further our journey into city of Melbourne to attend to our appts but can't wait to get out of there to once again return and stay with our friends at the Mercure Ballarat on our way home. The staff cannot do enough for you. The rooms are a little 'tired' and do need upgrading especially the lounge chairs which need cushions to enlighten the comfort. More bench space for luggage too. The fridge in rooms need freezer in them to freeze our bricks (for medication) and very small in size but so good to see they aren't packed up with 'mini bar stuff' but overall we don't stay anywhere else in Ballarat because of the service and good value we receive. Beautifully landscaped gardens with the water feature along driveway and plenty of parking for function room as with patrons to Restaurant. So close to Sovereign Hill and other such places of interest. Yes, try it especially if you're an ACCOR member as we are because not only comfort you get but also excellent value. We love it!

« A perfect stay »

Loved our stay here! We were upgraded to the Mews and our stay exceeded my expectations. Everything was spotlessly clean, everything was thought of, and the bed was so comfortable, it was better than our bed at home!

« Lovely 4 x days at Mercure Ballarat »

Great stay in loft room, quiet and comfortable for three nights, Reception, bar and lounge area very welcoming, close to restaurant and pubs, short drive to city centre, all worked well for me. Cool weekend so did not get to try pool. Spa $30 for one hour is a treat.

« Weekend away. »

I was made to feel extremely welcome at the Mecure Ballarat Hotel and Convention Centre. I came for a weekend conference but you wouldn't have known this by the friendly staff who always had a smile on their faces. My room had been renovated and was extremely comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for anyone wishing a few days away from the 'rat race'.

« Value for money »

Room was excellent. Undercover parking was a nice bonus. Appreciated the complimentary bottles of water. Only downside were that the Pillows weren't so great. We will definitely stay again next time we come to Ballarat. Location is easy to find.
