A playfully sophisticated boutique hotel awaits you in the heart of Ballarat.

Dine with

Lola Montez was one of the most notorious characters of the Gold Rush. She was a dancer, an actress, a comic, but it’s her cheeky and spirited nature that has influenced us most. Just like our namesake, Lola offers an energetic and unforgettable locally sourced, seasonally driven menu with an authentic European influence, created and presented by Head Chef, Shaun Thomson, and the Lola Dining Room team.

Stay with us

Just like staying at your exceptionally stylish best friend’s house, the team at The Provincial Hotel will cater to your every whim. Each uniquely curated room housed within Ballarat’s iconic heritage building, will ensure you leave us feeling inspired, relaxed and delighted.

History

The Provincial Hotel sits pretty on Ballarat’s historic Lydiard Street. Built in 1909 the iconic building, recognised by the National Trust, has housed a myriad of publicans and hoteliers, each enriching the hotel with greater grandeur. 

Identifying a market for luxury, boutique accommodation, coupled with service guaranteed to exceed expectation, Simon and Gorgi Coghlan found the canvas they had been looking for in the form of The Provincial Hotel. Early in 2018, Simon, a leader of regional Victoria’s hospitality industry, and Gorgi, a media personality with a penchant for design and beautiful styling, partnered with Drew Harry, a dynamite of the regional hospitality industry, to bring their vision to life.
