I stayed on a Saturday night in a twin king bed room which was bigger than the average hotel room, the room was clean and quite modern. For some strange reason they have a folding window in the bathroom looking out to the bedroom which when someone goes to the toilet at night the light shines in the bedroom area.... More

We have stayed at The Novotel in Creswick a few times as we like the relaxing feel of the hotel. It's located in the countryside just out of Creswick and the rooms have lovely balconies and views. It is in close proximity to Daylesford and Ballarat. The resort also has a great golf course and relaxing bar..

The rooms were clean and bright - we stayed in a two bedroom unit during the March long weekend. Breakfast buffet was reasonably priced and a good selection. The decor of rooms could be considered somewhat antiseptic without a lot of character but the rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. Location of resort was a close drive from Daylesford and... More

We stayed in a large room with a big bath and a small kitchen. Was disappointed there was no toaster provided in the room, but the hotel... More
