Lovely hotel with genuine old world charm, beautifully decorated room albeit it on the small side but as a single room was a good size. Bed most comfy I’ve slept in a hotel, linen really nice. Being able to have fresh air was a treat, took a while to find power point which was a power board behind bed, it is an old historic hotel. The atmosphere is fantastic and fittings top notch. On-site Parking is tricky and not a lot of it, staff assisted with tight manoeuvring. Check in early is best, parking full at 2.00pm weekday, that’s the only reason for not 5 star rating. Restaurant was fantastic as always, have eaten here many times. Overall it’s a must do in Ballarat. Staying was a treat.
