Mercure Ballarat Hotel and Convention Centre has been transformed over the past 12 months under new ownership. This highly regarded regional hotel and conference venue, host to major national events, has invested in significant capital works refurbishing its extensive meeting rooms complex, and redesigning and repackaging its conference product offerings.
Just 75 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, Mercure Ballarat is located opposite the multi-award winning Sovereign Hill and close to the historic centre of Ballarat. Providing regional Victoria’s most comprehensive conference and event facilities with a variety of rooms for 10 to 1000 guests, Mercure Ballarat delivers the best conference experience in regional Victoria.
Enhanced landscaping around the large ornamental lake adjacent to the main conferencing rooms, including expanded deck areas, has become a feature for groups to enjoy social interaction and relaxation. And it’s a great space for alfresco functions and events. This whole waterfront area has created a real ‘wow’ factor to the overall presentation of the property, together with three hectares of beautifully manicured gardens and totally refreshed interior spaces.
The new Networker conference package is already a popular initiative in achieving its objective of facilitating productive group interaction and providing delegates healthy, interesting food at lunch and break times. This is acknowledged through positive client feedback and testimonials which are open to clients sharing for reference.
Billy’s Bistro & Bar named after celebrated Ballarat personality, Billy Butterfly is popular with locals and hotel guests. And they keep coming back for more of Chef Dona’s fresh Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Conference delegates enjoy Billy’s for breakfast, barista coffees and leisurely time-out.
