Lack of parking Stairs
very small room and bathroom outdated furniture. Looking tired.
Within walking distance to restaurants; fantastic breakfast with good service; friendly staff; good shower.
It was a Saturday night, lots of Christmas parties/traffic in the restaurant strip until early morning. Had to walk through other bedroom to get to bathroom.
Close proximity to Central Ballarat - Art Gallery, etc. Lovely breakfast and surrounds. High ceilings gave the room a feeling of greater spaciousness.
Parking might be an issue for some as the hotel does not have designated parking spaces. We parked right out front on Lydiard St but it was a quiet Sunday night, so it was fine for us.
Walking distance to anything in town
Nothing the place was great
the close proximity of this Hotel to the main street and most of the places we wanted to visit. The hotel was lovely, the staff were wonderful and the breakfast was delicious. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ansonia, I would not hesitate to recommend it.
Non pretentious accomodation in a great location. Comfortable and good value for money
I can't understand why you would offer free wifi when the speed is so slow that it is unusable. In fact using my iPhone as a wireless device was at least five times faster
parking can be an issue
The location was perfect, the room beautiful and the manager lovely!
I liked the building. the room was great and the service was terrific
Hard pillows and external light for bathroom.
The rooms were large and comfortable and the bathroom just as large. There were heaps of areas to sit and relax outside the room and having a good restaurant on the premises was a bonus. Centrally located in Ballarat.
Location very good, breakfast/dining room excellent
Outlook from room average & bathroom very much needing in renovation. ie very cracked pedestal basin.
We really enjoyed the building, the old age of it, the fact that it used to house offices in the 1800s hence its central location. We liked the timber floors in the roomy bathroom and the high ceilings. Very quiet and the staff really accommodating.

Sophisticated but still comfortable and homely. Great little places within the building to escape and have a quiet moment
Staff were great , location great , comfort great , food fantastic
The building's ambience
Room a little stuffy due to warm day. Fresh air needed.
liked the old fashioned building and open area
the stairs to our room
This is a beautifully renovated old building, with wonderful ambience. Has the feel of a family hotel, hosts are very friendly. The dining room is tastefully restored and decorated with great food to match the surroundings .
Being across the road from her majesty's theatre
No cutlery no plates not even a toaster
Bed,size of room,location.
Beautiful old building, comfortable room, friendly service, great after hours security and very central
Convenient location right opposite her majesty theatre.
Too many stairs and no connection between upper levels.
location comfort spacious room comfortable bed good breakfast
Downstairs rooms a little dark because no external windows.
The breakfast and staff were very polite and efficient. The location was excellent for our purposes.
Sadly I was woken before 6am by a lot of noise caused by what sounded like items being wheeled along the concrete floor of the atrium area and/or a roller door being opened. The other issue was very limited parking available in the street outside the hotel and had to park around the corner,
