I walked in, asked the prices of a couple of different drinks, because I’m not from Ballarat and don’t know the prices of drinks here and the waiter walked off mid conversation because I asked the price of too many drinks (4)

And that was the noise on Friday night - investing in some sound proofing would be a good plan. Loved the building and facilities, great bathroom, loved the street, the non smoking balcony on the first floor was a good place to sit, excellent food.

About
Description
Ballarat's second oldest hotel, the original George Hotel building was erected in 1854. The George Hotel is located in what is known as one of Australia's most important historical streets and is opposite the Art More Gallery of Ballarat, walking distance from Ballarat's Visitor Information Centre and a few doors down from the local cinemas. Over the past 3 years the hotel has undergone a major refurbishment to bring its hotel style rooms, including some apartment style accommodation, to a four and half star standard. The hotel is now also home to the Ballarat RSL with memorabilia displayed within the hotel. Newly refurbished bars and dining areas now operate seven days and at the rear is a new upmarket lounge which operates weekends for guests and discerning patrons with strict standards. One of Ballarat's most popular meeting places, The Lane offers a street cafe and alfresco dining, alongside the Lane Restaurant (popular with foodies) and Heritage Bar & Restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week.
