Beautiful old building with old world charm. We stayed in the Zebra room which we loved, all the little touches to the room were really nice ( champagne, wine, port, choccies,and lots of other things... the only thing I didn't like was the timber toilet seat...I couldn't use it because to me it felt like it was very unhygienic so...

We had a lovely stay at the manse for our weekend away in daylesford. We had more than enough food for the light brekkie and were impressed with the little touches such as choccies on the bed and a bottle of delicious wine. We enjoyed the jacuzzi which was available for guest use and had it to ourselves which made... More

This place is full of surprises, everything is thought of and at your fingertips if you need it. My son Boston and I had the opportunity of enjoying the hospitality at The Manse. I have worked in the hospitality industry for 25 years and I personally found this establishment went the 'extra mile'. We were instructed on the arrival procedure... More

This place is either a hit or a miss. We stayed in the plum room. Upon arriving out keys were in the box with directions to find our room. Unfortunately I was really thrown off upon entering. The fruit beadhead just didnt make sense. The room was very dark and uninviting. The toilet wierd and the shower not well thought... More

Had a wonderful stay. The room was beautifully laid out, full of more than enough supplies for the weekend. Loved the layout and the ambience, and luckily it cooled down enough at night to light the open fire. The bed was very comfortable. Would highly recommend and be back again

For the second time running staying at this elegant mansion has been an absolute delight. The building looks like something passed down from your rich, eccentric grandmother, the claw footed bathtubs and old fashioned toilets providing ample character! This time around, in addition to enjoying wine-infused nights in front of the fire, I took Ally up on her suggestion to... More

My husband and I have visited Daylesford every year since 2008. We discovered The Manse in 2009 and it's been our go-to accommodation ever since. I love the historical building, with its grand entry and classic touches, and each room has its own unique style. I've stuck my head into all of the suites, which are lovely, and have mainly... More

On a busy accommodation weekend, the Manse in Daylesford came to us as a two night booking opportunity when very little was available for one night at less than two to three times the standard rate. A call from manager, Ally, prior to departure from home, not only gave us the details of access into the Manse, but also some... More

THIS PLACE IS AN ABSOLUTE GEM! I booked at the Manse for 2 nights. As a person who absolutely thrives on 5 star stays both in Australia and overseas, I had very high expectations. I am also not easily impressed. But this was worthy of every recommendation and award possible. The room was OUTSTANDING. Beautiful finishes and a 5 star... More
