Stayed here for the one night and was not disappointed. It was a sweltering night and the air con provided some in room relief. Very good nights sleep on a comfy bed and the breakfast was amazing and the female manager was very attentive and was excellent at her job. She made an amazing coffee to order, actually she made...

Booked on Wotif as a mystery deal - was a bit concerned having read the reviews - but it was great. Location on Lydiard St perfect. Room on first floor was well appointed and very nice. Excellent hot chocolate included on tea/coffee tray which I like (although no complementary biscuits...). Free continental breakfast was plenty to set us up for... More

Ansonia is a fantastic little B & B in the heart of Ballarat. Staff were very friendly, rooms were very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a big breakfast the following morning, and found this to be a no stress stay. Would recommend to anyone, and will be back again next time!

Stayed here one night to break up trip to grampians. Small hotel, service very old fashioned, not in a good way. Reception staff not exactly friendly, it's more like a motel than the self described boutique hotel. Walking to room the stairs were dirty ( no lift ) and paint coming off evident everywhere you looked. Room was on first... More

This is a review from my friend: The front window is not well covered so when people walk past they can see in. People smoking in the courtyard pretty much sat at your door. The shower head broke whilst in shower. Could hear everything in the rooms around. It was a nice room the bed was comfortable but not nice... More

Sharing a business 'ladies long lunch' at The Ansonia on Lydiard was a pleasure. We don't catch up often so it was great to have an environment that makes you feel 'special' and that invites conversation without too much ambient noise. The Ansonia's rich heritage architecture, sophisticated but comfortable decor, and crisp restaurant style make sitting here with friends and... More

We stayed one night, passing through as part of a road trip. It was a negative experience from the beginning. It had been a long day travelling and we could not find the hotel. We had driven the length of The Great Ocean Road with it's incredible scenery and arrived just after dark. There were no outside lights and we... More

Stayed here with a large group and we had what seemed like a private section for ourselves. Staff were lovely considering our noise levels and late comings and goings. Breakfast was a lovely inclusion and definitely needed. Rooms nice and spacious including a big bathroom. Housekeeping was a little late in the day for my liking. Would definitely recommend and...

stayed one night. Very clean, good bed, large spacious room, huge bath. Really good cooked breakfast and excellent coffee. Only downside is that it had timber venetian blinds rather than curtains which let light into the room at night.
