Efficient and functional

« Saggy mattress »

The grounds of the hotel are beautiful. The only real issue was the mattress which was so saggy in the middle that I got a kinked neck

« Mercure Ballarat, an oasis in the city! »

We stayed at Mercure Ballarat in February 2018 and it was picture perfect. It has beautiful grounds with walking tracks, a lake with ducks actually duckdiving, a deck where you can sit and take in all ths ambience. The rooms are well furnished and spacious and no detail is left to chance. If I were organising a conference it would be the perfect venue. Bar and bistro either indoors or outdoors, plenty of peace or exercise options, including a pool and a spa for those who want the lot!

« Good place to stay but FIX YOUR FREAKING WIFI DAMNIT »

The rooms are nice, the grounds are nicer. Staying at the Mercure is a nice experience, until you need the internet. Your wifi is an absolute joke. It would have been laughable 5 years ago, but now it makes the whole experience feel cheap and makes you feel ripped off. Especially when you have conference facilities, it's just bizarre that you would expect people to conference effectively but then have the most frustrating wifi in the universe.

« retreat hotel in lovely garden setting »

enjoyed our two nights. Great amenity around the lakes, cheap drinks during happy hour and nice restaurant. Rooms were comfortable and no excess noise.

« Good value »

Reception staff and bar staff were good. Room was clean - though cupboards were dusty. Furniture and room run down. Pool was extremely clean and lovely. I would recommend it as value for money.

« We are regular guests at Mercure Ballarat and the high level of service never changes. »

As is the case on each visit to Mercure Ballarat, the level of service and quality of the total facility from food and wine to accommodation never reduces from what is indeed quite excellent. We are always totally happy with Mercure Ballarat.

Anonymous Families - 28/01/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Pleasant staff, good service, good food and ok price. Shower needs some attention

« dark room, poor service, delicious calamari »

I found the room dark, last time we stayed in the two bedroom villa which we enjoyed. The service at the bar for the outdoor dining was very poor: we were dining with another couple, we ordered separately and sat at the same table, there were no obvious table numbers. We were served quickly, but no side plate or cutlery (we were sharing) the napkin and cutlery came out quickly and the side plates almost frisbeed! Our friends received their dips once we had completed our meal, they had two thirds of their dips left but no bread, I asked if they could have more bread and the reply was "he would see", the bread came, we waited and after an hour I asked if my friends could have their main course, the waitress did not reply and reappeared with meals for other diners, we watched her trying to get eye contact, the waitress then said "the chefs are doing it now" the meals came, steak was over cooked and the burger too spicy for my friend, she did not eat it. The waitress enquired if we would like more drinks (the first time she approached our table voluntarily) I enquired if the drinks were complementary, as they had waited so long, she said she was not authorised to give complimentary beverages, I suggested she ask someone who had authorisation. The waitress came back and asked our friends for their complimentary drink order, we were not included and were very frustrated by this time, no apology was given. When my friends checked out, there was a $4.50 charge on their bill, that they had not ordered, I said they should have it taken off, the check out staff said it was only $4.50, the point is that they did not order anything. Perhaps numbers for tables, as the waiting staff wander around looking for the recipients. Anyone ordering anything on their room, should show their key or sign. When a mistake is made, apologise and say how you can rectify it. It all comes back to training or lack of. I chose the hotel and will think twice before I choose it again.

« A nice stay »

Room was nice and cool on a very hot day and the pool was put to good use.We found the food in Billy's very nice.I found majority of the staff a little reserved,could be a little friendlier.All in all good stay

« enjoyable but, as my wife and I like to swim, and as we are retirees, we need a bar or something to hold on to to enable us to get in and out of the pool (this would be appreciated) »

enjoyable as we have stayed here several times in the past. The location is excellent. Used public transport to travel into the city, not having to pay for parking was a bonus. Would have preferred a room with a verandah and seating outside but, as you were practically booked out, we were lucky to get accommodation on our dates (we appreciate that)

« Great stay »

Good resort set in beautiful surroundings. Room clean and comfortable. Good restaurant and friendly staff. Within walking distance of Sovereign Hill and 5 min drive from centre of town. Nice deck overlooking the lake. Food good and breakfast normal selection.

« Very efficient and friendly and met our expectations. »

We were attending an event and the hotel was in a good location to support this plus we are impressed with the grounds and lake. Overall, the hotel will need updating soon and is in need of some external maintenance, painting included.

« It was a great relaxing, fun experience. »

We stayed for my nephews wedding and the facilities were fantastic. Loved the tranquility of the place, the way it is spaced out and you don't feel like you are on top of everyone else. The wedding reception was magnificent. The food was fantastic.

« Sovereign Hill with the grand children »

We were very happy with the two bedroom apartment in which we stayed for two nights, it was spacious, clean and well equiped with with major appliances and crockery. The garden court yard was well received by our grandchildren. I think an additonal toilet downstairs would have been a plus and the existing upstairs toilet should have a lock on it. I also think you will need to consider upgrading items such as your TV as the models you have cannot handle the latest media technology.

« Pleasant hotel »

Enjoyed the stay buit would have prferred a room closer to the main recpetion area. VERY pleased to see some long overdue upgrades to the gymn.

« Fun Family Getaway »

We had a lobely time at your hotel. We were a family of 22 people and stayed in seven rooms overall. The grounds are stunning and we all relaxed by the pool. Location is perfect and your staff are friendly and helpful.
