Hotel Vera


Boasting seven personalised suites, each named after a charming goldfields township and punctuated by the works of a formidable Australian female artist, Hotel Vera is a one-of-a-kind luxury offering in the Ballarat accommodation space.

We offer a risk free booking guarantee. You will be refunded the total room rate if you advise us of cancellation at least 48 hours prior to arrival. To view booking terms and conditions click here.

*Please note that all suites have king sized beds. We do not offer any other bedding configurations such as single beds. Suites have a maximum occupancy of two people, except for when you are travelling with an infant, which are free. Portacots are not provided.









Breakfast at Hotel Vera is available 7 days a week and is a seasonal inspired continental breakfast. It varies from day to day and is determined by what is the most tasty right now. It may include some of our brilliant purveyors used such as Shultz dairy, 1816 bakery’s pastries, Vegas & Rose granola, Salt Kitchen charcuterie hams and seasonal poached and fresh fruit, served with St Ali coffee or herbal teas

Ground Floor Accessible & Pet Friendly Suite

For the comfort of all guests, the Hotel Vera  has been restored to ensure inclusivity without compromising on style and comfort. 

The Accessible Suite has been designed for guests who require additional space and amenities. It features all the essentials, a king bed, spacious bathroom, roll-in shower with seat, lowered basin and support handles – creating a soul-warming space to farewell the world outside.

Hotel Vera also understands that a holiday is not complete without one’s furry friend. The hotel’s pet-friendly suite Lonarch accommodates house-trained dogs so they are equally able to enjoy their stay away.*

*Please note that a one-off fee of $40 applies for the pet-friendly suite. Only one dog is permitted inside, and we kindly request they do not climb the furniture. Guests are required to provide their own dog bedding, and for the comfort of your neighbours, please ensure your fun-loving friend does not bark into the night.


Sustainability has been integral to Vera’s prosperity, and has been at its core since the idea of the hotel was first conceived. True luxury must be founded upon environmental integrity.

Vera offers guests the convenience of a dedicated Porsche EV charging station on-site, providing the reassurance that one’s adventurous escape will be seamless and joy-fueled.

Local social enterprise Fifteen Trees has already planted 250 trees in order to help offset the impact of the hotel build. These trees will all be planted together in the region, leaving guests a literal gift to return to whensoever their heart desires.
