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...

We stayed for one Saturday night in November. The towels were large and luxurious and in stark contrast to other motels where we've stayed. The shower was warm and refreshing. The bed was most comfortable and led to easy sleep. Wi-fi Internet is a big disappointment, but that seems to be so everywhere we stayed, except for the Public Libraries....

Stop over with our daughter and her very young baby. We had adjoining rooms as two bedroom accommodation was not available. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The weather during our stay was unfavourable so we did not walk any distance from the Hotel, however it was a very short drive to the main business district.

I was met at reception by a very very pleasant man named Darren who was very attentive and dealt with every request that I sent to this motel. Is kept in immaculate condition and has easy access for motor vehicles and parking directly out the front of your motel room once inside you're met by a spacious room with a...

This motel is well-located in the centre of Bendigo. It was well-patronised with most rooms being occupied so perhaps more money could be spent on maintenance. Our room was very tired with loose and damaged plaster on two walls, bathroom towel rails hanging off their fittings, a drawer unit in a wardrobe hanging at a 10 degree angle and a...

This is a typical motel type setup conveniently in the centre of Ballarat. The rooms are on two levels around a courtyard. Parking is directly outside. Whilst clean enough the place seems slightly run down and looks a bit 1970's-ish. There is a small outdoor pool.

I use this hotel as a base while visiting Ballarat every few months or so. Staff esp. Kylie, are very friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. Haven't tried restaurant for any meal other than breakfast, but have heard great things about dinner from locals. Easy to get to with plenty of parking. Have stayed as solo, family, and couple.

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
