An authentically restored Victorian Hotel found in the centre of historical Ballarat. Beautiful rooms, wrought iron queens size bed, fantastic French inspired restaurant, great wine list,quality toiletries,valae parking and an Edwardian styled public bar with friendly bar folk.Only downer was the wreched pokies that took away its elegance and charm.
By the way it also has a resident ghost (best ask management which room to book or avoid).
Look forward to a return visit.
