Lovely Hotel that felt like a B&B. Liz and David such friendly hosts. Rooms lovely and warm. They have a really cosy feel. Close to everything. Beautifully renovated hotel in heritage precinct, within walking distance to everything.

Hotel was clean and very warm (it was cold outside). Very friendly staff and had a nice breakfast. Only downside was that the TV did't work and I was unable to watch the cricket (in hindsight pretty good because were all out for 60).

Staff were very friendly and professional. Cars parked out... More

After several stays here have decided to comment! Ansonia has a great vibe, lovely rooms and facilities at a fantastic price. I've stayed on both business and pleasure and will make it my base whenever I'm in Ballarat. Excellent, helpful staff. Very clean and close to everything.

My 6 year old daughter and I enjoyed a Saturday night in Ballarat, staying at the Ansonia on Lydiard. Conveniently located in the middle of town, it was an easy walk from the train station. We had a very comfortable and spacious room, with a well equipped bathroom. We made use of the comfortably furnished guest lounge with a good... More

Located within short stroll of the shopping center of the city, train and bus station , theater, art museum or short drive from the Botanical Gardens. The venue worked beautifully for the small family... More

I have stayed here on two occasions for work and love it. The location is fantastic right in the heart of Ballarat and it is a beautiful historic building. The rooms are beautifully done with all you need and the hotel is always so snug and warm. The operators have gone out of their way to ensure I was happy... More

I have stayed here a number of times and the standard of accomodation and food is consistently excellent - quiet, spacious rooms with heaps of features for lounging around in all weather. The hosts are second-to-none, generous and helpful, like visiting old friends.

This is a really lovely hotel. The rooms are huge and very comfortable with really high ceilings, the staff are friendly and accommodating and the lounge room is a pleasant place to sit and relax. I don't know if I'll be visiting Ballarat again in future, but if I do I will certainly stay here.
