In town for a spur of the moment night away we didn't plan on staying the night till we got to Ballarat. Looking through the places online i came across the Quality Heritage on Lydriard and the word Quality really does describe the rooms. Our room was beautiful the bed was comfy the amenities were well stocked. It was a...

We had an impromptu opportunity to visit Ballarat. Booked in to Quality for one night. Trevor and staff were amazing. The rooms are just gorgeous. On leaving Monday morning we checked out and went to breakfast. We came back to fetch the car & I wanted to quickly feed and change our baby girl. No parents room, but the lovely...

Dear Dusty677, Thank you for your great review. Keep us in mind for a weekend getaway. We are a popular choice for couples who chose to wander the beautiful streets-capes, visit the Art Gallery located across the road or enjoy a show at the theatre down the street.

After paying $260 per night for an apartment style room we arrived late afternoon to check in. The people managing the venue were helpful however it was obvious due to the high noise level in the building that a party was well underway. We were checked in and they advised that the party would finish around 12 o'clock. We had...

I stayed overnight in a standard queen room. I was warmly welcomed at check in. The small foyer was elegantly appointed with heritage staircase and crystal chandelier. My room was in a modern wing attached to the original former bank. Being in the modern wing at the back, it lacked some of the historic charm of the original building, but...

It had been a few years since my last visit but the staff knew I had been there before and greeted me warmly. The rooms are large and comfortable and the large leather couch very inviting. There are plenty of great restaurants just around the corner and a lot of history in the buildings in the street. All in all...

My three friends had adjoining apartments which had showers and spa. Incredible drawer space. Tastefully decorated. Off street parking/secure and a doorman on duty. Well appointed kitchen. A real home away from home, albeit luxurious. Free internet computer

Staff were extremely friendly. Big clean modern room. Small but adequate bathroom. You have to check in first to be given key to access car parking.... behind the premises via the next street. The best thing about the Heritage is its location. Walking distance to everything...restaurants plentiful...shops...train station. We will definitely stay here again. It did not bother us as...

Our property is located in the very heart of town just 300m from the Ballarat Train Station on Ballarat's most historic streetscape. Our building was first opened in 1862 as the Bank of New South Wales. As with many old buildings, our secure, undercover parking is accessible from the street behind.

Stayed here for 2 nights on a weekend break. We chose an Executive room on the second floor which did not disappoint.
