Certificate of Excellence
The Provincial Hotel sits pretty on Ballarat’s historic Lydiard Street. Built in 1909 the iconic building, recognised by the National Trust, has housed a myriad of publicans and hoteliers, each enriching the hotel with greater grandeur. Just like staying at your exceptionally stylish best friend’s house, the team at The Provincial Hotel will cater to your every whim. Each uniquely curated room housed within Ballarat’s iconic heritage building, will ensure you leave us feeling inspired, relaxed and delighted. Lola Montez was one of the most notorious characters of the Gold Rush. She was a dancer, an actress, a comic, but it’s her cheeky and spirited nature that has influenced us most. Just like our namesake, Lola offers an energetic and unforgettable locally sourced, seasonally driven menu with an authentic European influence, created and presented by Head Chef, Shaun Thomson, and the Lola Dining Room team.

I am not sure why I was surprised by the high standard of this hotel. Rooms were very comfortable, the breakfast was fantastic. Central location and building with great character. We stayed in a double bedroom suite in the new wing.
