Lonely Planet review

The best of the grand old pubs was so named after it hosted visits by the Prince of Wales and Duke of Edinburgh. It’s a wonderful Victorian building with old-fashioned opulence and some creaky floorboards, but the rooms have been beautifully refurbished with king beds, heritage furnishings and marble bathrooms.

Our independent authors have visited Craig's Royal Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Ballarat.
