About Craig’s Royal Hotel

Craig’s Royal Hotel located in the heart of Ballarat has been a goldfields icon since 1862. This luxury heritage listed boutique hotel exudes splendor, sophistication and old-world charm that you can surround yourself with in the function spaces. Perfect functions such as wedding receptions and wedding ceremonies, conferences, business meetings and corporate events. 

Craig’s Royal Hotel has been the scene of glittering social events in Ballarat for more than 100 years. Built in 1862, Craig’s has been a goldfield icon since Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, slept in its ornately decorated rooms in 1867 and Dame Nellie Melba famously sang from its balcony in 1908.

Situated in Lydiard Street, one of Australia’s most important heritage streetscapes, this luxury heritage listed boutique hotel has hosted some of the most memorable conferences in history including, some might say, the greatest conference in Australia’s history - the Royal Commission into the Eureka Stockade.

Its legendary status is further complemented with some of history’s most distinguished guests from the Duke of Edinburgh to Mark Twain and Sir Donald Bradman.

You can see Craig’s celebrated history in the fine details of its beautifully restored exterior and interior. Craig’s Royal Hotel exudes splendor, sophistication and old-world charm and offers a range of exquisite function rooms and unique meeting spaces to make your function truly legendary.
