Offering Ballarat accommodation over two buildings, the Quality Inn Heritage on Lydiard is a boutique hotel nestled on Ballarat’s historic Lydiard Street in the city centre. Surrounded by some of Ballarat’s grandest buildings, the hotel was formerly the Bank of NSW and dates back to 1862, the height of the gold rush period. The building housing our Ballarat accommodation has now been transformed into an architecturally designed masterpiece combining stylish modern accommodation with a distinct heritage flavour. The second building is above the exciting new George Hotel development two doors up from the main Quality Inn building. The George Hotel was established in 1854 and is Ballarat’s second licensed hotel. It has now been transformed and renovated with new accommodation and function facilities. This Ballarat accommodation is a perfect base from which to explore the region. Ballarat was founded in 1838 and is Victoria’s largest regional city. Step back in time at Sovereign Hill historical park, reliving the gold rush and Eureka rebellion. Take a walk around the town and stop in at the many museums and art galleries, botanical gardens and historical buildings.
The 13 guest rooms at our Ballarat accommodation include standard, executive and superior rooms with 40 inch LCD screens, complimentary cable TV, in house movies, and wireless internet. Some rooms feature gas log fires, chandeliers and views of historic Lydiard Street. Hotel amenities include gymnasium, roof-top heated plunge pool, spa and sun deck, state of the art function and conference room seating from 12 to 150 delegates, and secure undercover parking.
