We only stayed one night and although it was very cold, the house was warm and inviting. No TV in guest rooms and no internet. Not a problem but maybe should be emphasised. The bed was very high but comfortable and warm. Bathroom was teeny tiny but functional and lovely hot water. Only problem was that it rained in the... More

Thanks Chris, Sorry to hear from you that your sleep was so disturbing, your husband spent some time at breakfast telling us that the rain was loud, (but didnt disturb him and you were a light sleeper),and you were sleeping in and joining us later. Understanding how awful it was we contact our local plumber to inspect all roofing areas.... More

The pluses are comfortable beds, very good location, it's quiet, a nice fireplace room, very friendly chooks out the back and very good value for money. The supplied shampoo is those satchels that are nearly impossible to open so bring your own shampoo. The breakfast is not gourmet but certainly value for money, especially when it is such a very...

We stayed in the spa suite for 3 nights. Great breakfasts delivered to our door. The crepes were amazing and the egg dishes too. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Walking distance to the lake and main area. Was a very relaxing stay and we will be back.

If you are a fan of traditional B & B's, then this is the place for you. A lovely house so close to the centre of town and the lake. The room was comfortable with it's own ensuite. Breaky was just yum. Irene and Renee were very welcoming and it was obvious that they enjoyed what they did. I would... More

Only stayed one night and had the whole place to ourselves, so no noise issues as some other posts mentioned. Well equipped kitchenette in the spa suite plus candles and bath salts in the bathroom and a friendly chook outside in the private courtyard. Breakfast was so delicious we could have had seconds. Only (small) negative was that we arrived... More

Pendower House is a lovely property with helpful & very friendly owners. Breakfast was delicious & so kilovolt to be able to have it in the front balcony right amongst the garden.

We stayed here a few years ago and loved it. So when we were passing through Daylesford, the decision of where to stay was simple. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It can get quite chilly overnight, so the central heating was most welcome. The surrounding garden is delightful. The high quality multi-course breakfast was a treat. Renee's... More

Thank you Pat and Bob for thinking of us while travelling through. It is always a pleasure having return guests especially in spring time when the garden is looking so pretty. I still get a smile seeing the flowers swaying and a little chicken moving through them... causing havoc but looking very happy. See you next road trip! Thank you... More
