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.

This was a special break for us and Ambleside on the Lake did not disappoint. The location was second to none, right on the lake! Linda and Frank were fantastic hosts very warm and welcoming with a wealth of local information. When we returned from dinner they had turned on our electric blanket, what a treat!

Andrew and I stayed in the beautifully appointed Lake View room at Ambleside for 2 nights over the Easter long weekend 2013. We could not have asked for better hosts than Linda and Frank who looked after us like we were VIPs.

Spent a really enjoyable weekend with my daughter at Ambleside. Very welcoming host and Linda & Frank offer an excellent breakfast each day - great choices and different menu each day. The location is peaceful but close to all that Daylesford has to offer and the view across the lake form the back verandah is absolutely gorgeous.

Pleasant enough, and friendly, personal service. For she and I, the garden below was a bit unkempt and unloved, and access via the garden direct to the lakeside path was locked off. No maps or useful local information sheets, even though the visitors centre two minutes drive away is very well stocked with a range of maps etc and other... More

My daughter and I spent a weekend at Ambleside and were very impressed. Linda and Frank are lovely hosts and look after their guests with care. The breakfasts offer great choice and are delicious. We loved the location, a hop, skip and a jump to the lake and second hand book store. We will return!
