We stayed for a night with our pug on a cold winters day. Jenny greeted us on our arrival and was a wonderful host. The attic room was a great space, very inviting, spacious and great view as well. Close proximity to Lake Daylesford meant we could go for a walk there easily. Higly recommend that. We will back for... More

Stayed at the wren 2 weeks ago for anniversary weekend as said had a spa and brekkie. The spa didn't work!! It has signs all around it saying air pockets and you need to completely empty and refill right under signs saying to conserve the water!! News flash: if you want to conserve water fix spa so not refilling needlessly... More

We returned it The Birches for a 4 night stay on the 19 th June 2014. I should have been concerned when after 6 phone calls and e mails from the owner,Patti I still received booking confirmation for the wrong month. This was sorted and we arrived on the Thursday at lunch time to a locked office door, finally the... More

We booked the 'Birch' room for a mid week getaway from Melbourne and were so disappointed with this hotel that we didn't even end up staying the night. Firstly, the manager was not even there when we arrived so had to wait in the car for over an hour and a half for them to turn up. Then when she... More

Stayed here for 1 night with a friend mid week. At $200, is was pretty good value for money comparing to other Daylesford accomodation. We stayed in the Attic Room. It was really big and bright, had glass bay windows and a balcony. King size bed, bathroom with spa (spa was quite old and needed some maintenance though), and lounge/kitchen... More

My girlfriend and I drove up early Sunday morning from the Mornington Peninsula to spend the day at the Lavandula Lavender Harvest. We booked the cottage at Birches and it was great. Everything you need including outdoor settings under cover, we enjoyed the verandah later that evening when we returned. We asked if we could arrive early and leave our... More

Booked The Attic through lastminute.com as it had great reviews. Immediate impression on walking into the room was "wow" because it was so light and spacious with a large balcony and great view. I understand the other reviewers mentioning the lack of personal contact with the owner/manager, however that suited us, but it was annoying that we had a check... More

We flew to Australia arrivingin Melbourne 8am and then drove to Daylesford on an increasingly misty and cold day Our reception at Birches was disappointing. As wanderingabouttown commented, the key in the door said it all. There was none of the personal warmth we associate with good B&Bs.Some bread etc for breakfast was in the fridge. Once we had the...

Stayed at Birches with 3 other friends. It's a quaint little cottage with everything you need in it. Yes it is dated but we expected this as it is part of the charm. It is a dated little cottage but very clean. My personal recommendation would be to bring your own shampoo, conditioner and towels, some shampoo and conditioner is... More

Not really sure why these people are in the hospitality industry. Dismissive phone contact, zero contact on arrival or departure... The key in the door said it all. Accomodation itself was adequate but extremely disappointing. The lighting was dim: no overhead lights and the wattage in the lamps inadequate. Towels clean, but very old... many with frayed bits trailing off.... More
