My husband & I had a wonderful meal at the Peter Lalor Hotel in Ballarat. The serving size was spot on, being the perfect amount for us to leave fully satisfied. The salad was very fresh & the hot chips great. We both had dishes from the "Parma Land" section of the menu- in this instance being Chicken mine known... More

Last Monday went there for a meal, we received the lunch menu, as nothing of interest was on the menu, I asked the bar attendand what fish they had for that day, he responded by saying it was the chef's special, "Fish of the Day", so we both order that. Upon receiving it, I was in shock as the fish... More

We arrived late into Ballarat and our travel brochure listed the Peter Lalor as an historic hotel so we decided to give it a try. Bad decision! The paint was peeling, curtains didn't fit, poor lighting, decrepit bed linen and faulty bathroom! To add insult to injury we had to ring in the morning to recover our key deposit before... More

It is clear that the Peter Lalor Hotel has seen better days. That doesn't always matter when you stay somewhere because the owner is proactive in doing what they can to maintain the property within their means. A run down place can indeed be pleasant enough. However, this hotel is filthy and the owners need to respond to this immediately... More

I was informed by management that as I wished to leave early in the morning that I could ring him and he would refund my key deposit of $50.00. On ringing three times over a period of an... More

I travelled to Peter lalor in october, and stayed for two nights, rooms are unclean, only one power point per room, carpet is dirty and peeling. The bathroom facilities were poor and needed to be cleaned, the shower was either too hot or freezing.Should not be marketed as a Hotel, Better off staying at backpackers.

After a horrible dinner on the previous night, we were worried about another shocker of a dinner. But I was pleasantly surprised! Quick service and a beautiful meal is what we got! Large servings of delicious Aussie and Asian meals with a kids menu and the best beers on tap. Will definitely come back next time we are in Ballarat!

To say that this place is "sub-par" is being kind. The facilities are what you would expect in this price range, but the service is very slow and staff are quite rude. Food is sub-par but will cost about the same as everywhere else and you pay the same amount for drinks as you would at Crown Casino - I... More
