Grand Historic Home That Sleeps 12
About David Cook-Doulton
I appreciate great design and have a passion for architecture in all its forms. I'm particularly interested in restoration projects which marry the old with the new. I love sharing my projects with others and actively seek feedback from other creative souls. Lascelles is co-managed by my partner Martin Shew and will be the key liaison point for any questions that you may have. He will always be on hand to guide you through the booking and check in process.

Perfect in everyway
This property was exactly what we'd hoped for. The location of the property perfect, the rooms were amazing (beds so comfy and warm), and the house was warm and inviting. We visited as a group of 4 couples and shared many laughs (and lots of food and drinks) around the fabulously huge dining table and in the generous lounge room. I would definitely recommend this house for a group visit to Ballarat.
The house is amazing! And so close to everything in town!
Thanks for a wonderful stay. We certainly enjoyed our stay.
Amazing, stylish and large for our group of 10
If you appreciate interior design and art then this home is for you! When we saw this house online it certainly stood from all old fashioned and boring alternatives. It did not disappoint! This historic house was beautifully presented in a pristine condition and was perfectly clean Our group of ten was well catered for in terms of bedding and towels.
Martin was an an excellent communicator and we would recommend staying at Lascelles.
The location is convenient and central - we would definitely recommend this accommodation if visiting Ballarat.
We had a very pleasant stay at Lascelles Ballarat. Martin was very prompt in his responses and was an excellent host. He gave suggestions where we could eat and he did not disappoint.
The house was just lovely and perfect as each room was unique and decorated to high standard. The space was very well thought out and there was plenty of space, especially since there were 10 of us. The beds were super comfortable and the house was extremely clean. I would highly suggest anyone staying at Ballarat to stay at Lascelles. Our family would stay there again. Five stars - we'd give more if we could.
Great location, sense of history, plenty of room, plenty of support from David and Martin
We enjoyed our stay. The location of Lascelles was wonderful - easy walking access to main shopping area, great restaurants and coffee shops and the Lake and Gardens areas.
The house has been well maintained and the historic character of the building has been kept. There was plenty of room for the eight of us. The big dining room table meant we were able to spend lots of time together.
A wonderful stay. Thank you.
