“Wonderful stay, would stay again”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

We checked in on Christmas day prior to visiting relatives for Christmas. As the managers were not working we received a text message to advise that our key was inside our unit. When we arrived we were very pleased - you enter via a lovely courtyard which reminded me a little of Notting Hill... Our unit was very spacious, very clean and modern and is well equipped - from the kitchen to the laundry facilities located in the bathroom. There were reverse airconditioners in downstairs and in each of the 2 bedrooms.

Within walking distance there are a couple of cafes and restaurants and even a family bistro with a children's playground (and where we had Christmas dinner).

We met the managers when we checked out a few days later and they were extremely nice. Overall there isn't anything bad you could say about the Quest Ballarat Mews - it would be a fantastic location if you were going to Sovereign Hill and wanted to stay near - you could walk there.

We would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: There are only 9 rooms in a U shape but probably 5-8 would be best as they are away from the street...

we arrived around 10 a.m. & were greeted by some very friendly staff, no issue at all that we were so early & our room was ready..The beds are fantastic, very comfy..Nice clean apartment with a lovely gardened courtyard. No traffic noise in the apartment we were in. We walked to Sovereign Hill both in the day & for the night show, 5 minute walk. We thought this apartment was very good value and if you are in Ballarat consider staying here, it's well worth it.

Room Tip: The office does shut at 5 o'clock but there is an after hours phone.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit that was very comfortable and roomy. The unit was very clean and we slept well. When we arrived, the heater was switched on which made a nice touch seeing it was in winter. The unit is next to Sovereign Hill and a short drive to the town centre. Overall, it was great value and we will stay there again.

This is one of the best motels in Ballarat! I'm so glad I found it, it's great for kids and adults. They have HD TV's one in the lounge room and one in the adults bedroom. They have a nice size kitchen with all your cooking needs including oven. You might be quite surprised but there pillows are very nice to sleep on. I have found no problem with the beds. I would so go their again!

Room Tip: All rooms are the same since their is about 8 of .

We stayed here whilst visiting Sovereign Hill gold mine village. Very comfortable & relatively clean, although we did need to wash most of the kitchen utensils/crockery before use.
My only negative was that we weren't told that reception closed at 5pm. We finished at Sovereign Hill at 5.30pm (closing time) & arrived not knowing what to do to get into our apartment. Make sure you call early to find out what to do if you are arriving later than 5pm.
There are other places close to Sovereign Hill that were cheaper, so make sure you look around.

WE stayed here only one night during a tour of Victoria and found the unit clean, comfortable and well equipped. Washing machine and tumble dryer very useful as we were away from home for over a month. Breakfast packs were available at reception but we thought these were very expensive ; however the manager was happy to gove directions to the local supermarket and we bought everything we needed for dinner and breakfast there. There are chairs and tables outside the units in the communal courtyard which, when we were there was full of roses in full bloom. Unfortunately everyone else sitting out seemed to be smokers - not so pleasant for those of us who don't smoke and the courtyard is not really large enough to get away from it. Sovereign Hill ( recreated gold mining town) is practically walking distance and well worth a visit.

We stayed here as my husband had work in the area with myself, and our son who is 5. The rooms are surrounding a lovely courtyard which have beautiful roses everywhere and some seats. Inside the rooms/apartments are 2 storey with full kitchen and lounge and laundry down stairs and bathrooms and bedrooms upstairs. There are also DVD's for free for the family to watch. We had a great time here in Ballarat.
