As usual, comfortable stay, great hosts in Frank and Linda and wonderfully warm accommodation on what was a bitterly cold couple of Daylesford days. Thank you Ambleside. Will book again early in the 2016 year.

This B&B is in a very pleasant location overlooking the lake. There is balcony at the rear of the house where you sit and admire the view. The house has lots of character and reminded us of home. It has dark timber furniture in the bedroom, lounge room and dining room. All areas are tastefully decorated. Unfortunately, the moblie phone... More

We had stayed here before back in November 2009, it was very busy and we were given the front room. The rest of the house was occupied. . We decided to stay in Daylesford for my birthday January 2015, just to be pampered. Nothing really changed except for the renovated bathrooms. The rooms are pricey as is most accommodation in...

An excellent place to stay. Linda and Frank are very friendly and have a great knowledge base regarding the local area. Nothing was to difficult, including an impromptu visit from the local wildlife (kookaburra's) waiting patiently for breakfast. We highly recommend staying here and would stay again.

A great spot, balcony overlooking the lake, a lovely spot for a pot of afternoon tea. Room was beautifully presented and very clean. Was lovely to have heating in the bathroom and the bedroom AND electric blankets on a chilli night! Carol and Frank were very friendly and offered a very tasty breakfast.

Our room was of adequate size,clean and comfortable. There is also a large guest lounge / dining area leading to a balcony overlooking the lake. Lynda and Frank are genial hosts. We were passing through and only stayed for one night but would have liked to stay longer.

Wonderful to return to Linda and Frank's charming B&B. Great views of the lake from our room and a welcome from the local kookaburras and magpies when we had a cup of tea on the verandah. Great breakfast, nothing was too much trouble for our hosts.

Had such a great stay. The place has a wonderfully cozy feel to it from the bedroom to the balcony with it's immensely relaxing view. Lovely hosts who have put a lot of thought and care from the fresh coffee and conversation to the subtly-placed speakers breathing soft music into the shared nooks.

We have just spent 2 nights at Ambleside on the Lake at Daylesford. What a great property. The room was perfect, clean and tidy and the outlook towards the lake was really pretty. Linda and Frank were the perfect hosts and the relaxing areas were adequately furnished and quiet. We opted for the cooked breakfast both mornings and they were... More
