As one of the first Grand Hotels in the colony, Craig's Royal Hotel Ballarat was born from the wealth of the Australian Gold Rush Era. Established in 1853, Craig's soon set the standards for unparalleled hospitality and service. Hosting poets, princes and prime ministers over its 155 year history, the hotel is a true icon of the Victorian period.

Now, after nearly six years extensive restoration, the magnificent accommodation, dining, meeting and banquet facilities are re-establishing Craig's as the finest boutique heritage hotel in Australia. Located on historic Lydiard Street in the heart of Ballarat, this Victorian landmark invites you to experience the legend that is Craig's alone.

Dine in air-conditioned comfort on a sunny afternoon or under the stars in the evening at the Gallery Bistro. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in a spacious light filled glass roofed conservatory in the historic courtyard of Craig's Royal Hotel. The perfect place for informal dining.

Room types

TypeDescriptionNumber of rooms


The Classic room is intimate and affordable. Available in single, double or twin formation, all are beautifully furnished in a variety of period styles. The comfort of today's corporate and serious tourist have not been compromised whilst not abandoning the heritage appeal.4


A diversity in configuration and style are reflected in the rooms (some including spa baths) of this category. Your choices include rooms with either a balcony, corner spa en-suite, queen or king bed. These charming heritage rooms are full of character and offer great value when the larger suites are not required.2


Furnished with genuine antique mahogany (some Australian) or original Australian brass beds the Deluxe rooms are a perfect refuge for a multiple night stay. Add a bit of spice to your stay by choosing one of two "Chinoiserie" styled rooms - one boasting a 600 year old antique Chinese wedding bed!2


The largest and grandest rooms provide the best heritage accommodation in the region if not the country. Overlooking the historic Lydiard street precinct and Her Majesty's Theatre the Royal Suites are generously furnished with antiques and the finest bedding, the rooms are grand and comfortable. Many of the marble trimmed bathrooms include Roman or "Hydrotherapy" corner spa's. The Royal Garden suites on the ground floor or the "Anglo-Japanese" styled suite with its oriental flavour are just a couple of examples of the many style choices. These carefully appointed and individually themed suites ensure you will "Experience the Legend" that is Craig's Royal Hotel, Ballarat.2
