Ballarat's second oldest hotel, the original George Hotel building was erected in 1854. The George Hotel is located in what is known as one of Australia's most important historical streets and is opposite the Art Gallery of Ballarat, walking distance from Ballarat's Visitor Information Centre and a few doors down from the local cinemas. Over the past 3 years the hotel has undergone a major refurbishment to bring its hotel style rooms, including some apartment style accommodation, to a four and half star standard. The hotel is now also home to the Ballarat RSL with memorabilia displayed within the hotel. Newly refurbished bars and dining areas now operate seven days and at the rear is a new upmarket lounge which operates weekends for guests and discerning patrons with strict standards. One of Ballarat's most popular meeting places, The Lane offers a street cafe and alfresco dining, alongside the Lane Restaurant (popular with foodies) and Heritage Bar & Restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week.

The George Hotel has been part of the social fabric of Ballarat since 1854. It was built at the height of the Great Australian Gold Rush. The hotel even played a part in the suppression of the Eureka Stockade. The facilities have been modernized recently, and it's a pleasant place to stay. The George is in historic Lydiard Street, over the road from the superb Art Gallery of Ballarat. The Lane Cafe is a good place for a drink and a meal.

Hotel's Favourite
LOVED our stay in a Suite that overlooked Lydiard St. An Olde World Hotel with VERY Modern Additions. And... GREAT Variety on the MENU for Lunch and Dinner, but the Kitchen area would make it Very Easy to put together a Meal...(& there IS a Washing Machine!! Marvellous).As well, The George location is in Central Ballarat. An Easy walk to all sorts of Shops.We will be returning here in March. DO give The George a Visit... Smile...

Visited the George Hotel on Wednesday evening for a meal with friends. No table service. Disappointed that the table beside us got table service but we weren't offered any type of table service. Last drinks were not called, and when approached the bar was told that the tills had been closed this being 9.15pm. Staff were nowhere to be found at times when we were replenishing our drinks. The staff member did after I expressed my disappointment at the service we had received, did provide drinks as long as we paid cash. No complaints re the food. Service was atrocious, will not return to this hotel.

Us Melbournians escaped for a few days in Ballarat and weren’t disappointed. Whilst I love the history and architecture, The George staff and surrounds treated us to a special relaxing three night stay. From the reception, to bar staff and wait staff, we were made to feel special. Our room was comfortable with everything we needed and the renovated bathroom was straight from a magazine.
