The Ansonia is Ballarat’s stylish boutique hotel in the heart of the city and housed within a heritage listed building with a featured light-filled atrium.
The historic site and building dates back to the gold rush era when it was developed as commercial premises in 1851. It was known as the Furnival Chambers from 1875 until major renovations in 1996 converted the property into a small boutique hotel and restaurant. Hotel managers, Bett and Terry McGrath are personable hosts to corporate regulars and leisure travellers who enjoy the hospitality of this exclusive hotel, conveying a stylish B&B feel. Bett McGrath says, “Guests enjoy a sense of being looked after individually when they stay at the Ansonia, in particular, in the mornings when I like to engage with them giving a memorable focus to our breakfast experience.”
One of Ansonia’s key architectural features is the atrium. A stroll through the atrium brings guests to the hotel courtyard and restaurant, where diners enjoy the modern ambience, either inside or alfresco. As one Trip Advisor patron reported: ‘The Ansonia’s rich heritage architecture, sophisticated, but comfortable decor and crisp restaurant style make sitting here with friends and colleagues a true Ballarat experience’.
