Lovely Hotel. 2nd time staying there. Very clean, quiet, staff were nice. Well equipped kitchen and gym. Great location in Ballarat, close to everything. No room service on Sundays though which is a little disappointing. Would definitely stay again.

Great spot to stay, modern rooms in a quiet location. Central to restaurants and bars. Perfect for a weekend getaway. Meigas is a fantastic Spanish restaurant just a 10 minute walk from Quest.

A great central spot for your stay whether it be overnight or longer. Very close to restaurants and shopping precinct, easy walk. The complimentary coffee machine at the front desk is fantastic, certainly a good idea!

The Quest was a terrific place to stay. The only problem was disappointing that there were only stairs to reach third level. This was difficult for someone with arthritic knees. If we had have known that no elevator was in the building we would have asked for ground floor rooms
