I did not have the opportunity to stay at this place as my confirmation email turned out not to be a confirmation. How naive I must be! I booked through a website at 3.10pm and received the confirmation email from the booking site. 4 hours later I had another email from The Menzies that they had received another booking within...

It is always disappointing when people turn straight to social media when aggrieved. Yes, we encountered a problem with the booking and the following is what was written by me, in part, to inform the person of the problem: Hello Alison.

Stayed here recently for 4 nights (have stayed here previously) and again were delighted. Room was very spacious and larger than most motel rooms (35sq m approx), more like an apartment. The room had an excellent firm, flat bed with soft mattress topper, good quality sofa and other furnishings, well fitted-out kitchenette with full-sized fridge, microwave, quality cutlery etc. Bathroom...

Central location, made it easy to reach all our destinations and within walking distance of the CBD. Rooms were clean and our bed was very comfortable. Customer service was excellent and the staff were courteous and went out of there way to help.

We stayed overnight to visit the Bendigo Art Gallery and found this accommodation to be conveniently located to the centre of Ballarat. It is modern, clean and in a quiet location.

Not our first trip to Ballarat, which we love, but our first time at the Quality Inn and were very happy with everything. Clean comfortable room, very friendly and obliging receptionist who delivered breakfast to our room.

This fairly modern motel situated in Ballarat 'a Bakery Hill is clean, quiet and comfortable. The beds are especially luxurious. Management is pleasant and responsive. Although there are plenty of restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walk the onsite Asahi Japanese Restaurant is excellent.

I have to confess that I didn't like Ballarat, it seems an odd choice for a tour of Victoria, only saving grace is that it breaks up the drive back to the airport. The room service does not provide free coffee, really sad that you'd have to pay for coffee pods which I refused to do on principle . The... More

Hi Rob. I am surprised at the nature of your review. We 'Ballaratians' believe our city to be the jewel of Victoria! Most guests are frustrated tour operators only allocate the one night on their itinerary as there is so much to see and do. Still, I guess it is all in the eye of the beholder. Coffee pods? -...

I stayed here whilst working in Ballarat and would certainly return again.
