Craig’s Royal Hotel Ballarat



Food & Drink

Located on historic Lydiard Street in the heart of beautiful Ballarat, Craig’s Royal Hotel is a destination in itself.

The legendary Australian gold-rush era grand hotel is a true icon of the Victorian period. Opening in 1853, it has played host to poets, princes and prime ministers over its 160-year history. Now, after extensive restoration, the magnificent accommodation, dining experiences and business facilities offered, are also establishing Craig’s as a modern day icon.

Stay in one of the 41 luxurious rooms or suites, where elaborate attention to detail is evident in every finishing.

Enjoy a coffee and cake in Craig’s Larder café, or a drink in the legendary Craig’s bar, with its antique carved Australian cedar detail.

Dine in The Gallery Restaurant, where you can enjoy breakfast or lunch basking in the sun-drenched conservatory or dinner under the stars. Seasonal menus and daily specials highlight some of the best local produce on offer.

Host a private party in the original bluestone cellar, or if you are looking for a beautiful historical wedding space, celebrate your special day in any of the three stunning banquet rooms.

If you are looking to experience the extraordinary, then it is time you experienced Craig’s.
