Plenty of old-worldy character yet with all modcons needed, this Ballarat Original is well worth a stay. There's a tie-in with the local RSL with memorabilia and photos of old soldiers adorning the walls - all very interesting and they add to the character. Rooms are large and comfortable. Our bathrom was separated from the bedroom itself by a frosted glass wall which is OK but doesn't lend itself to total privacy (if that's an issue for you!). The hotel is very central with good restaurants and parking close-by, quite secure and free for guests. Someone warned us of the noise from downstairs but we never heard a thing and slept soundly. Enjoyed Ballarat itself. Thanks for a very pleasant time all round!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ballarat's second oldest hotel, the original George Hotel building was erected in 1854. The George Hotel is located in what is known as one of Australia's most important historical streets and is opposite the Art Gallery of Ballarat, walking distance from Ballarat's Visitor Information Centre and a few doors down from the local cinemas. Over the past 3 years the hotel has undergone a major refurbishment to bring its hotel style rooms, including some apartment style accommodation, to a four and half star standard. The hotel is now also home to the Ballarat RSL with memorabilia displayed within the hotel. Newly refurbished bars and dining areas now operate seven days and at the rear is a new upmarket lounge which operates weekends for guests and discerning patrons with strict standards. One of Ballarat's most popular meeting places, The Lane offers a street cafe and alfresco dining, alongside the Lane Restaurant (popular with foodies) and Heritage Bar & Restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. ... more less
