About Craig’s Royal Hotel

Experience the extraordinary! Craig’s offers an experience like no other. Ballarat’s oldest and most luxurious boutique hotel has been an icon since 1865. Full of historical charm and elegance yet lovingly restored, offering the ultimate in modern comfort.

Located on historic Lydiard Street in the heart of Ballarat, Craig’s Royal Hotel is the legendary Australian gold-rush era grand hotel. Built in 1862 on the site of Bath’s Hotel, Ballarat’s first officially licensed pub, Craig’s has been a goldfield icon since Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, slept in its ornately decorated rooms in 1867 and Dame Nellie Melba famously sang from its balcony in 1908.

Host to poets, princes and prime ministers over its 160 year history, the hotel is a true icon of the Victorian period. Now, after five years of extensive restoration, the magnificent accommodation, dining, meeting and banquet facilities are re-establishing Craig’s as the finest boutique heritage hotel in the region.
