Not what we expected from 'luxury accommodation'. Rooms are not cleaned properly with visible dust, dirt and cobwebs in the room and main foyer. The room was missing some advertised features such as hairdryer, extra towels etc. It was just lacking! The Princess Room does not have a DVD player, for example. The new hosts were very friendly and tried... More

Stayed in Barcaldine House for Eagles Concert. New management tried hard. Very friendly, however accommodation had some short comings. Issues like no shampoo in room, no milk for tea/coffee, no bath mat and running out of loo paper we're disappointing! Pluses - great breakfast, nice bed linen, nice venue.

You are welcomed as friends into Frank & Rose's home. Great hosts, lovely accommodation kept scrupulously clean and close to Daylesford but far out enough to be rural. Set amongst vines, a sample bottle of those vines is placed in your room with some chocolates. Option to have a meal on site and taste some wines. Recommended if you don't... More

We stayed at Barcaldine on the recommendation of others and were not disappointed! The hospitality shown by both Frank and Rose was exceptional and the home cooked meals - amazing!! After an exhausting day, being able to have dinner at the cafe on the property was also a bonus. The wine tasting is a must, I have never been a... More

Whats better than sitting next to a blazing fire with a glass of red watching rain fall onto the picturesque musk countryside? Frank and Rose at Barcaldine house never fail to offer a warm and welcoming experience. They offer outstanding service, great wine and food (the BEST tuna pasta) and friendly smiles. value for money is spot on, and we... More

Shame it was raining as we couldn't enjoy the lovely looking gardens more. We did however have a excellent wine tasting and lunch hosted by the very charming Frank and his lovely wife Rosa. Great stories. Great wine and great pasta with meatballs in my case and chorizo in my wife's.

My wife and I got out of Melbourne for a weekend getaway and my plan was to visit a few wineries in the Daylesford area on the Saturday. Based on my research I thought that Barcaldine House looked like the best place to combine some wine tasting with lunch. I was right, and furthermore after visiting here we didn't even... More

Three girlfriends and I were looking for a relaxing weekend away from Melbourne and we certainly found it here at Barcaldine House! We spent the first afternoon relaxing in the English gardens in the sun, enjoying the peace and quiet of the country. Frank arranged for our wine testing at 6pm which gave us a nice introduction to the wine... More

Have been to Barcaldine House twice now because of how lovely it is. The food is delicious and inexpensive. I took a group of eight people recently and everyone agreed it was perfect. Frank did a wine tasting while we waited for the food and was friendly and chatty the whole time. We walked around the gardens afterwards and had... More
