Craigs Royal Hotel – Wedding Venue, Ballarat
Located on historic Lydiard Street in the heart of Ballarat, Craig’s Royal Hotel is the legendary Australian gold-rush era grand hotel. Built in 1862 on the site of Bath’s Hotel, Ballarat’s first officially licensed pub, 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.
Host to poets, princes and prime ministers over its 160 year history, the hotel is a true icon of the Victorian period. Now, after 5 years extensive restoration, the magnificent accommodation, dining, meeting and banquet facilities are re-establishing Craig’s as the finest boutique heritage hotel in the region.
Recognised as one of regional Australia’s most prestigious wedding venues, Craig’s Royal Hotel is the perfect combination of historic charm, tradition and innovation. Over 6 years restoration and refitting works have created a wedding venue, unmatched in the region.
Stunning bridal suites, luxurious guest accommodation and beautiful settings throughout the hotel allow for one of a kind photo opportunities.
Food will impress with bespoke menus created and prepared by our team of talented chefs. Enjoy formal dinner, “famille” or cocktail style – each capturing the best of regional flavours and produce and a wide selection of local, domestic and international wines from Craig’s own cellar collection.
