Location was fantastic Beautiiful room well serviced
Lift was not available to guests unless accompanied by staff member - not good enough we were on the top floor.
The wait staff were very pleasant and obliging especially the dinner staff.
I booked two superior rooms .The first room was small with no bedhead and nothing like the pictures on the booking site. The second bedroom was lovely and what I expected. I requested a another room and was changed to a room which was to my liking.
Old style, well renovated, warm room, complimentary valet parking, good breakfast
Pokies next to the dining room, but they were discreetly hidden away
Beautifully decorated, comfortable and excellent service. Would definitely stay again.
Lovely restoration of the building and very helpful staff
Heating in the room was marginal at best, and the hot water for showering was non existent on arrival, and erratic and substandard in the morning
This is the hotel we love staying at when in Ballarat. Service is always excellent staff are fantastic and Helpful. Accomodation is comfortable and very clean and tidy. The cleaning staff should be commended.
We had to leave!
Rooms comfortable and beds lovely. Really nice and quiet. Grand old beautiful hotel with lovely atmosphere. Breakfast and breakfast room gorgeous.
Wanted to do the ghost tour but no-one at reception could give me any information on when it was on, where to go - but I found the info (too late to do it) in brochure that reception had on display. Other than that - staff were superb.
location, ambience, breakfast
lift not working, room miles away despite the hotel being not busy
The dining was very good and the ambience was also very good
The bath room was cold
This is a truly delightful place to stay. All staff were very attentive, welcoming and thoughtful.
Old world charm. Historic buildings. Nice restaurant. WiFi included. Excellent service. Parking available (free) in courtyard but only by valet method. Good location in centre of town close to attractions.
Bed was a little too hard for my liking. Standard room a little small. Ancient lift and different levels on same floor involving steps.
The ambience. Quality restoration/furnishing. The location. A real experience to stay there.
The lift, although in keeping with the building, is a clunker and needs upgrading.
Staff were brilliant! Food and atmosphere was fantastic. Beautiful renovation. Cannot wait to stay there again.A truly unforgettable weekend!!
The comfy beds and the quiet room.
WIFI did not activate in my room
The staff were excellent, very attentive, courteous and efficient. Love the style.
Very clean, & comfortable.
The hot water didn't stay hot enough to fill the spa bath, ended up only being luke warm.
Great location great food great staff
Lift a bit slow
Loved the 'old world' setting
Room too small
service breakfast staff charm
parking outside to start
Beautiful décor and wonderful old world charm. Staff were wonderful and helpful. Will be sure to stay at Craigs again
Very helpful and friendly staff. Restaurant was excellent. The hotel was very stylish and the decor was lovely.
The toilet was positioned so far into the corner of the bathroom that the toilet roll holder was pushing uncomfortably into my left arm. The shower screen was innefective and the floor got soaked, the floor drained badly leaving a pool of water.
Loved the look of the building and the restaurant food was great and a very enjoyable experience.
The pokies let the building down
Old world charm and old world service was greatly appreciated.
Ensuite excellent but crammed
The room was too cluttered /wardrobes and chest of drawers taking up too much space The bed was too high No comfortable chairs at height suitable for an average person No coffee table No way you could relax in room No toilet brush
