Would have no hesitation in recommending Ambleside. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The hosts are helpful without being intrusive. The complimentary breakfast is excellent. A great location too. All in all a really enjoyable experience.

Our hosts were delightful and unobtrusive. All the little things were thought of to make our stay wonderful! So close to everything yet on the quiet side of the lake. Beautiful décor, comfy bed and all the information about the area is provided for you. The breakfast was delicious and used local produce.Disappointed we only had one night!

Last minute decision to escape ballarat for a few nights and Vue seemed like a nice and private place to hole up. Lovely place with amazing views of the lake, completely quiet and private. The b&b is just next door if you need anything which we didn't. Awesome bathroom with lovely bath and separate shower. Fully kitted out kitchen and... More

Hi KiwiArrin, So glad you enjoyed your stay at Vue Villa. Although this property is not owned by us, we simply manage it for the owner, we try to ensure the same high standards that we have at the B&B next door. We hope you can make it back to Daylesford sometime soon. Linda More

We had a small weekend break away and stayed here, it was really lovely , peaceful and the hosts were most helpful and friendly. We had a really good nights sleep in the lovely bedroom overlooking the lake, and the dawn chorus was so nice to hear while lieing in bed. Hope to stay there again sometime.

Wonderful accomodation,the location was great with the lake view. The level of service and friendliness shown by our hosts was second to none,we were even dropped off to enable a 10km bushwalk back to the lake! Linda's recommendations for dining out and a spa/massage were excellent. All in all a fantastic three night stay.

Andrew and I stayed in the beautifully appointed Lake View room at Ambleside for 2 nights over the Easter long weekend 2013.
