Ballarat Boutique Accommodation

Admit it, you’re a romantic at heart. You love carriage rides, weekend brunch on the patio, and long walks by the water. Whether you’re getting away with all your pals, stealing some solo time or taking your sweetheart on an unforgettable holiday, Ballarat is the perfect spot! Wanna pair the old town vibes and whimsical outdoor wonders with equally awesome accommodation? Check out the best boutique hotels in Ballarat and check into a fabulous stay!

Ever wondered how something small and independent can feel grand and lavish? You’ll find out how at boutique accommodation in Ballarat. With personalised service and uniquely decorated rooms and suites, these hotels take vintage chic to a new level. You might want to spend your whole trip hanging out by a lobby fireplace or napping between luxury linens, but you’ve got to get out and explore the city, too.

Out & About in Ballarat

Even if you aren’t the outdoorsy type, expect to spend some time out and about Ballarat. Explore the past on Sovereign Hill, where horse-drawn carriages and stagecoaches roll past restored storefronts, wooden footpaths and stables. Shake out some of that glinting ore at one of the mine tours—you just might strike it rich. And even if you don’t find gold, the luxury is yours when you come home to Ballarat boutique accommodation.

Shake the dust from your shoes and wander the stretch of Sturt Street along Sturt Street Gardens, which fills the small spaces between lanes with little natural parks. This part of town—the new city centre—is home to lots of breezy cafes and art galleries, so order your favourite cuppa and a fanciful brunch to fuel your browsing. For some gosh-darn peace and quiet after the buzz of a busy brekkie, take a walk around the Lake Wendouree Reserve.

Where to Stay in Ballarat

Even a 19th-century miner would agree: There’s nothing like putting up your feet and snuggling into cosy linens at the end of a long, full day. Consider these guest-loved Ballarat boutique hotels as you plan a dreamy getaway:

  • Hotel Frangos: North of Ballarat, in the spa town of Daylesford, Hotel Frangos is a great place to hide away with access to the natural beauty of the region. You’ll be just 46km northeast of the city, but you’ll feel like you’re in another world when you sleep between the luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets or wander over to a local spa. Go ahead, treat yourself.
  • Ansonia on Lydiard: Ready to relax in the historic heart of Ballarat? Soak up some sun in the atrium as you sip your morning coffee and take a lovely walk to Her Majesty’s Theatre and Ballarat Fine Art Gallery. Back at the hotel, enjoy the scenic terrace and garden and light up the barbie for a tasty dinner.

Whether you can’t wait to wander past Victorian and Edwardian architecture on Lydiard Street or mine for gold on Sovereign Hill, our boutique Ballarat hotels will be the perfect place to stay. Book the best travel deals from Wotif, from convenient airfare and accommodation to awesome activities and adventure-ready car hire options. Ballarat or bust!
