Spacious rooms that included a spa and gas open fireplace. Friendly service and good food but lousey wine served (I was surprised De Bortoli put their name on it!)at the conference I attended with my wife. The surrounding district was loaded with places of interest if you like wine,food and history.

the setting for the hotel is lovely- in the bush with a stunning golf course. However, the bed was too saggy and spongey and the pillows atrocious. The room was overheated. the restaurant on the ground floor was excellent but not for the buffet dinner. There was no literature about what to do in the region which was disappointing. We... More

We were immediately drawn to this hotel by the fact it was well priced and only a short distance from Ballarat where we would be paying a lot more for something similar. The service was impeccable and they even let us store our bikes in an office (we had spent the day riding the local rail trails). Relaxed in the... More

Impressed by the staff and service, comfortable rooms albeit not as quiet when a function is taking place. The only disappointment was the quality of the food at dinner and slow service on a busy night - we waiting for over 1 hour. Breakfast was better than dinner thankfully.

The room is nice. If you have stayed at the Novotel chain before then it will look similar. The room is a little smaller than the standard room I normally get at the Novotel in Melbourne but thats OK. The room has a spa bath which I definitely appreciated! We purchased our stay through Scoopon and were given a free... More

The shower in our room was over the bath. The height of the bath edge above the floor was greater than average, there were no support rails, and access to the bath was difficult. These should be standard.

The Novotel was set in a lovely location surrounded by a large golf course. We even got to see some kangaroos from our balcony! When we arrived and checked into our standard room we were pleased with it. However, our bath tap wouldn't turn on which was disappointing. We called for assistance and instead of moving to a different standard... More

The hotel is close to Daylesford (about 15-20 min by car), located on the edge of the forrest, next to a golf course. The room I stayed in was facing the back of the property (standard room), overlooking the golf course. It was very spacious and comfortable with a large TV monitor, and Free WiFi, if you join Accor club.... More
