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

Linda and Frank were wonderful hosts! The perfect balance of unobtrusive and enjoyable discussion. They served excellent, timely breakfast and created a wonderful ambiance. The Room itself was well sized and incredibly comfortable. My only regret is that I couldn't have spent more time enjoying the actual property and residence due to my short stay. Would recommend to anyone!

Linda and rank are the epitome of hosts, they made us feel very welcome. We were able to unwind on the balcony overlooking the lake on our arrival with a refreshing drink. The room was comfortable with a cosy bed and the en suite off the bedroom had ample supplies. The breakfast menue catered for all appetites and very well... More

Our Hosts Linda and Frank were very friendly. Located on the Lake and our room had lake views with a balcony. Very close to a lovely walk around the lake every morning (path starts just across the road). Very quiet area. We stayed five nights and had a relaxed and very pleasant stay. The breakfasts were great especially the eggs... More

We got the address from the tourist information office and we were not disappointed. In a lovely street with lake views, the cottage was a surprise. It had 3 large well appointed bedrooms, each with an ensuite, comfortable beds, quality bed linen, toiletries and a wide variety of tea and coffee . A large common lounge-dining and sitting room overlook... More

My partner and I stayed here at the end of 2014. We were after a quiet place to unwind after a busy year. Everything from booking, to checking out was easy and no stress. We spent a day at the mineral springs, and came back to Ambleside and relaxed some more outside on the deck. Such a great view! I... More

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.
