Visitors to Ballarat have an impressive new accommodation option to choose from this summer, with Quest Apartment Hotels opening its second property in the city today, 7 December, Quest Ballarat Station.

The stylish 77-room hotel located on Nolan Street is just footsteps from the train station and marks the second component of the Ballarat Station Precinct Redevelopment to come to fruition by award-winning property developer Pellicano, the first being the multi-deck commuter carpark.

The Victorian State Government's $28.3 million Ballarat Station Precinct Redevelopment project will transform one of Ballarat's most iconic heritage sites into a thriving community, dining, and retail hub, which will include heritage-listed local favourite The Goods Shed.

Enhanced tourism demand will be underpinned by Quest Ballarat Station's mix of modern serviced apartment and studios, complete with gymnasium, business lounge and a range of Quest speciality services including local restaurant chargeback, the Pantry Shopping for groceries and guest laundry services.

According to Tourism Research Australia, 3.36m visitors travelled to Ballarat in 2019, adding $613m into the local economy (1). The sector which typically sustains an estimated 3,010 jobs, representing 6.2% of total employment (2), has been adversely affected in 2020 by the pandemic.

Optimistically, Quest Ballarat Station will employ 12 people across guest services, housekeeping and management in a mix of full time, part time and casual positions.

According to James Shields from Quest Apartment Hotels, Quest Ballarat Station will be a popular choice for both business and leisure guests, in a city poised for ongoing growth and development.

Apartments at Quest Ballarat Station boast full kitchen, dining area, king beds, heating/air conditioning, washing machine and dryer, refrigerator, toaster, kettle and microwave, spacious bathroom, workstation, LCD television and complimentary WiFi internet access. Meanwhile studio-style rooms offer a more compact alternative, ideal for shorts stays and weekends away.
