« 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.

« Very good »

Booking over the phone was very slow. Woman I spoke to gave me 2 different prices according to my loyalty number. She didn't seem too certain...otherwise ok.

« Comfortable, quiet and convenient. »

Booking online through Mercure's website was simple. Check in was quick, smooth and friendly. The studio style room was large enough with all expected ammenities. Air conditioning worked well on a 42 degree day. Bathroom was quite large. Only minor let downs would be the queen mattress being the two singles zipped together meaning a ridge in the middle of the bed and that housekeeping had obviously had the door open when preparing the room so there were a number of flies and insects that had made it inside the room. Restaurant onsite was lovely.

« Pleasant Stay »

This is our third year in a row staying at this facility. I love the ambience of this property with its lovely grounds, Bistro Bar deck looks out across large pond/dam which has plenty of greenery around. There is a small creek that runs through the centre of the property (very little water in it) but this also adds to the spaciousness of the property. Some parts of the property are a little tired but this looks as if its being attended to as there was some activity on the other side of the creek from us. Breakfast and Bistro food was pretty good. Couldn't fault staff, they were very helpful.

« A quality hotel »

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful property. Professional and friendly staff, comfortable quiet room, and we particularly appreciated having the lovely spacious gardens to stroll through. All very much in sync with the grand country style of Ballarat..

« A nice hotel which was very convenient for the Cycling Road Nationals in Ballarat and Buninyong »

Good check in with room available a couple of hours earlier than 2pm. Friendly staff in the bar / lunch area. Well appointed room which was large enough for two bike boxes. Well functioning air conditioning. But - very slippery bath. The rubber bath mat did not stick which meant Dyanna went for a big slide with plenty of bruises to show for it.

« Terrible breakfast »

Very dated and worn out furnishings- I would have expected more from an Accor hotel! We paid extra for breakfast to find that the eggs were powdered not fresh. - very disappointing variety. Staff were tired and unfriendly. Not worth what we paid for.

Dera Jimano, I am disappointed to read that you did not enjoy our breakfast, we usually receive positive feedback regarding our buffet. I can assure you that eggs are made fresh every morning and are definitely not powdered. Regards, Simon

« It was good but would have been better »

Receptionist at the time of the check in was bit rude and wasn't helpful at all other than that experience with other staff members were pleasant.

« Friendly staff! »

Friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Fully equipted apartment. Apartment could do with a bit of renovation. One window would not close and sofa was very shabby.

Check in was very good - accomodating us for an early check in prior to Christmas lunch. Room was very comfortable and no complaints about breakfast - it was delicious.

« one night stay »

The overall stay was great, hotel staff were friendly grounds of the hotel were beautiful, food was great but (and this is just me), why oh why cant food be served in a traditional PLATE, I know it is the way everyones doing it but me personally do not like eating from a "chopping board", that was thee only fault from the restaurant side of things. Now... on the housekeeping side of things, I think more attention to detail needs to be made in respect to when there is a changeover of guests. Our room all beit comfy there was room for a bit more cleanliness, below the fridge was dusty, there was spillage marks down the bedside table(nearest bathroom), the bedsheets were not folded down tidy they looked as if the pillows were hiding the unfinished job, also the worst thing to come across was the shower gel (or lack of) it was the only item that had been used and put back on shelf with seal broke. One other thing, the cigarette butt locations could be placed somewhere other than outside certain rooms, thankfully there were no smokers that we were aware of but would not have appreciated it if people had been outside our window smoking. Again these are just my personal opinions but with The Mecure being a 4.2 star hotel I wouldve expected higher attention to detail. We would love to stay again as it was truely an enjoyable night and wouldnt let a few mishaps put us off, maybe have a go in the Spa next time. And we have already raved to our friends how nice the place was.

Very good overall. Needs a buffet breakfast in which would be great. Very clean.

A rest, tranquil haven complete with terrific food and great service.

Dale C. Couples - 28/12/2018 AccorHotels certified review
« It was, as usual, a wonderful, restful, and enjoyable stay. »

The front desk lass was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy. The restaurant food on the Friday and Saturday night was exceptional, one of the reasons we choose the Mercure. The accommodation was lovely, the bed comfortable, the kitchen well stocked. We enjoyed the fresh spring water each day ;-). The food on the Sunday night was disappointing, I had the Billys Burger and it was dry and tastless - quite the opposite of the seafood and steak of the previous nights. It's a small blemish on what was otherwise the very pleasant stay we experienced. I would suggest having dvd players available for hire, or at least HDMI cables available for lend, as most people carry their laptops with them nowadays and use them as players.

« Very comfortable and relaxing night in very accessible room. »

Excellent room - wife is restricted mobility wise - this room ideal for her & easy walk from car park. Meal was good - hotel had a number of events & dining room was closed for repairs. A job well done to cope!
