Linda and Frank were wonderful hosts. We highly recommend the breakfast Linda and Frank provide. Every choice was delicious and served in the general dining area overlooking the lake views. We loved that our room was warm on arrival. In particular, when we had a day out all day, finding the room heating was turned on when we returned was... More

Lovely setting on the lake. Good heating in the rooms on the coldest days of the year! Cosy traditional decor. Got out and about just the same - walked around the lake, had tea at the Book Barn, visited the Convent gallery and the shops in town. No problems with WiFi for us. A bit expensive for B&B but typical... More

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.
