Historic Lydiard Street
The Provincial Ballarat has a storied past and a promising future. Set in a heritage building from 1909, this historic hotel stars stylish interiors, charming staff and a brilliant restaurant. The owners’ masterful renovation and restoration comes with a sense of humour, too: Lola restaurant is inspired by exotic dancer Lola Montez, who toured Australia in 1855, and whose erotic ‘Spider Dance’ was described as ‘the most indelicate performance’ to have graced the public stage. Girl power is further endorsed via the hotel’s stash of on-sale art by local female artists: appreciative guests can take one home with them (the artworks that is, not the artists).
