If you want to sleep in the comfort of royalty, you can’t look past Ballarat’s Craig’s Royal Hotel, a 167-year-old edifice that has rested the heads of people like Dame Nellie Melba and Prince Alfred.
If you want the feeling of a house, rather than a hotel, boutique hotel Lascelles Ballarat comprises two conjoined Victorian terraces that have all the comfort of home – if your home were a super-luxe historic home, that is.
