Positive Reviews

Service is always pleasant.

Everyone is greeted with a warm welcome upon arriving at this hotel. The hosts are also regarded as being very helpful and providing attentive service without being overwhelming and stepping on guests’ toes.

In a great, central spot.

This hotel is well located for reaching a range of restaurants and shops on foot. Guests can also conveniently get to a number of popular cultural attractions including Her Majesty's Theatre and Ballarat Wildlife Park from this accommodation.

Property blends history and modern conveniences.

Since the 1850s the building this hotel is in has been a landmark in Ballarat. While the historic building has plenty of great architecture to admire, it is not lacking in modern facilities; blending both for a comfortable stay.

Negative Reviews

Advertised restaurant is shuttered.

Some websites that list this hotel advertise an onsite restaurant and bar, but guests report these facilities have long been closed. While the accommodation does offer a continental breakfast, disappointed visitors will have to venture out for any other meals.

Parking is commonly an issue.

The onsite parking area is very limited when it comes to space; so many guests will have to rely on public parking instead. These spots can also be limited depending on the time of day, which can be frustrating.

Wi-Fi access can be limited.

Getting connected with devices can be difficult at this hotel. The signal in the rooms isn’t great and not very conducive to guests who are travelling on business.
