Craig’s Royal Ho­tel

Melbourne Official Visitor Guide - - Regional Victoria -

Lo­cated on his­toric Ly­di­ard Street in the heart of beau­ti­ful Bal­larat, Craig’s Royal Ho­tel is a des­ti­na­tion in it­self.

The leg­endary Aus­tralian gold-rush-era grand ho­tel is a true icon of the Vic­to­rian pe­riod. Open­ing in 1853, it has played host to poets, princes and prime min­is­ters over its 160-year his­tory. Now, af­ter ex­ten­sive restora­tion, the mag­nif­i­cent ac­com­mo­da­tion, din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences and busi­ness fa­cil­i­ties of­fered are also es­tab­lish­ing Craig’s as a mod­ern-day icon.

Stay in one of the 41 lux­u­ri­ous rooms or suites, where elab­o­rate at­ten­tion to de­tail is ev­i­dent in ev­ery fin­ish­ing.

En­joy a cof­fee and cake in Craig’s Cafe & Larder and lo­cal pro­duce store, or a drink in the leg­endary Craig’s bar, with its an­tique carved Aus­tralian cedar de­tail. Dine in The Gallery, where you can en­joy break­fast or lunch bask­ing in the sun-drenched con­ser­va­tory or din­ner un­der the stars. The sea­sonal menu pro­duced by head chef Shan­non Eas­ton high­lights some of the best lo­cal pro­duce on of­fer, matched with an ex­ten­sive wine list, fea­tur­ing both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional wines.

If you’re look­ing to en­ter­tain, why not host a pri­vate party in the orig­i­nal blue­stone cel­lar? Or if you’re look­ing for a beau­ti­ful his­tor­i­cal wed­ding space, cel­e­brate your spe­cial day in any of the three stun­ning ban­quet rooms.

If you’re ready to ex­pe­ri­ence the ex­tra­or­di­nary, then it’s time you ex­pe­ri­enced Craig’s.
