Welcoming Travellers since 1886

Budget hotel accommodation in the heart of Ballarat

Stay with us and enjoy the ambience that Reid’s Guest House has to offer.

Built during the temperance era in 1886, Reid’s provided “respectable” low cost accommodation. In the 21st century, Reid’s Guest House continues this tradition under the management of UnitingCare Ballarat. Much of the building’s original splendour can still be seen. Reid’s foyer features the original magnificent hand painted ceiling murals, carved timber stairway and colourful Art Nouveau leadlight windows.

Reid’s Guest House caters to various travellers’ needs. Offering en-suite accommodation, traditional hotel rooms and backpacker quarters. Reid’s is the place to stay in Ballarat!

*Please note: Reid’s Guest House is a heritage listed building and as such we do not have an elevator. If climbing stairs is likely to cause difficulty please call and speak with our staff prior to making your booking.


In the interests of your quiet enjoyment we don’t allow alcohol or smoking in our building.
