Best of Ballarat on your doorstep


Stunning restoration

The past has been beautifully preserved at Battista.​

​The luxury accommodation is a home with some serious soul. It’s dreamy, soft and a safe space to cocoon.​ Natural light leads the way and the huge windows and vaulted ceilings are breathtaking. Glass walls give an uninterrupted view of the fabric of the old building.​

Battista is self-contained and sleeps two in spacious king-sized luxury. The en-suite features a walk-in shower and freestanding bath where you can soak the day away (no need to pack the bath salts, they’re already waiting for you).​

The polished gem of a kitchen manages to keep all its hard-working aspects from view and it’s stocked with all sorts of goodies. And, if you don’t want to leave the place, room service is available. ​

There are two living areas and a reading nook with views over the ground floor.​

a visual delight




On a cloud

Lose yourself in the king size bed. Enjoy hotel-quality linen in the cosy quiet of the upstairs bedroom.


The ensuite gives you space to soak in a freestanding bath, or enjoy a seperate shower.

Time out

Relax in the upstairs lounge, join the mega jigsaw, discover classics on vinyl, play a board game. Or hide in the reading nook.


The open-plan living gives you a lounge or dining table to enjoy local produce. Or slip away watching a movie.


Stone benches and top-quality cooking appliances makes this kitchen a delight to cook in – but you don’t have to!


Enjoy Ballarat on your doorstep. The serenity of Battista and all the majesty of a immaculant restoration.
