I love The Manse, so much so that we decided to come here for a weekend every year. The atmosphere was great and it was ideal for a weekend getaway. Our room had a fireplace (blue room), which was fantastic when we came here in June, and a big bath. The Manse is also close to most restaurants etc. I... More

We would love to give this place a higher ranking. The house is lovely to look at. Being an old rectory it has heaps of character and is in a good central location. The green room we occupied had a lovely view and was well laid out with lots of lovely little touches - like a massive roll top bath... More

Goodness, sorry to hear that even with three pillow choices, you couldn't be pleased. We are frequently complimented on how comfortable our high quality mattress are, so we were surprised to read your comments. A lot of effort was put into trying to cater for your list of requirements sent to us via multiple emails. I spend over two hours... More

We had an awesome stay this weekend at the Manse. It was romantic, charming, relaxing and very private. Ally was very accommodating to my fussy boyfriend (sorry) and even replaced the champagne with a bottle of non-alcoholic cider as I cannot drink alcohol, the chocolates around the room were a very nice and appreciated touch. - Jacinta and Jon

I had 3 requirements when I was looking to book accommodation in Daylesford: a bath, fireplace, and walking distance to restaurants. The Manse met these requirements but gave us so much more. This is an opportunity to stay in a unique and beautiful home and the chance to completely relax in a warm bath with the fire glowing and music... More

This place was really great - it was very ~romantic~ <3 We stayed in the Zebra room and loved it - lovely big claw-foot tub in the room (there is in all rooms from what I could tell from the fire escape floor plan), along with an open fireplace opposite the bed. We were genuinely surprised at how great the... More

We have stayed at the manse a few times now. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It's just so inviting. The rooms are so beautiful with the most amazing deep claw foot bath tub. And a fire in the room as well as heaters that adds such a cosy feeling. The supplies for breakfast are lovely and more than you... More

Warm, comfortable, quiet and close to shops. We stayed in the yellow room on the first floor which was a big room with high ceilings. Ally made contact with us earlier in the day regarding our check in details. The bath was beautiful, a nice way to start the day. The bed was comfortable and the kitchenette enough for a... More

Of course not everyone likes a claw-foot bath in their room - we found it enchanting. The wood fire was great - with plenty of wood chopped and available. The outdoor spa was hot and enjoyable. You couldnt ask for more in the room - We had the Green room which was great. I loved the views over the township... More

We had a good midweek deal. No signs out front directing to car park, so we hauled our cases up a very steep slope. Garden very neglected and front porch unswept. The solar lights do not come on at night, so unless I turned on the porch light we stumbled in the dark. Rooms pleasant. No shower, only large bath... More

We are disappointed you didn't enjoy your stay at The Manse. Unfortunately the choice and reservation wasn't made by you. I did explain our procedures and the rooms to your family member. You arrived 90mins prior to check in time during school Holidays, so your room wasn't ready. I knew from the scowl on your face, this review would come.... More

This place is very comfortable and has lots of old world charm. The room is well equipped and the view from the zebra room was picture perfect. The township is littered with interesting galleries and cafés.
