We like the decor of the property. The ease of the dining room. Our room was very clean and bedding was excellent. Convenience of being across the road from the Rail Station.

There is an overnight parking charge levied on any one who books online. Given the outrageous cost of staying there it is an insult. Most over rated hotel I have ever stayed in.

Dear Peter, Thank you for sharing your recent stay experience with us. We are sorry to note that the Provincial Classic was found to be uncomfortable in accommodating your stay with us. Our Provincial Classic rooms are not for guests wanting to spend large amounts of time in their room, but rather suited to couples or individuals who are looking for an overnight room to rest their head for the night after a day exploring the city. For guests who are staying longer with us we would recommend our spacious Lola Series rooms located on the first floor of the hotel, which offers guests a space to retreat if staying in the hotel for the day. If the opportunity does avail, feel free to contact us directly to advise of an appropriate room to accommodate your returned visit to Ballarat.

We were staying for one night so chose the room with the lowest rate. The room was small so the bed was shoved up against the wall and there was very little room for the suitcase. If travelling as a couple avoid this room type. We will certainly stay at the Provincial again but pay more for a larger room. We had lunch in the hotel restaurant and enjoyed the dish and ambience. The staff were helpful and friendly and the proximity to Ballarat train station is ideal for travellers.
