Situated on the first floor with an imposing classical Victorian staircase and lift access, each of our function rooms are convincingly individual in character. Together they are a remarkable example of the affluence and sophistication borne of the Ballarat Gold Rush era of the 1850's.

This spectacular and opulent room is decorated  in the late 19th century Empire style with its high ceiling and fine wallpapers. With room to seat 110 guests and space for a dance floor, the Grand Dining Room is the perfect location for an elegant wedding reception.



The legendary Prince’s room was specially prepared for royalty in 1867 when Queen Victoria’s second son, Prince Alfred, the Duke of Edinburgh visited Ballarat. The room is decorated with rich wallpapers and a most magnificent ceiling installed at the beginning of the last century.

Even a simple affair can take on the atmosphere of a regal event in the Prince’s room. This room is ideal for wedding ceremonies, cocktail receptions or an intimate seated function.



Located on historic Lydiard Street and overlooking Her Majesty’s Theatre, the Reading Room boasts an elegant balcony with views of one of Ballarat's most historic landmarks.

Imagine a formal dinner around the antique dining table, a meeting to form a new gold mining company or cocktails with Nellie Melba prior to a local performance – anything is possible in the Reading Room.

Exquisitely decorated and adorned with elegant fixtures, the beauty and grace of this split level room make it a popular choice for sophisticated wedding ceremonies, pre-dinner drinks and intimate dinners.



Deep under Craig’s wonderful Victorian edifice is a contrasting bluestone and timber cellar which in years gone by set the scene for much joyous imbibing. Now a private setting for dinner parties, mystery nights, gourmet wine dinners and gatherings with a classic rustic feel.

The Cellar is a unique location for an intimate reception or pre-dinner drinks with a difference.
