Hello, My friend and I started going to ‘Ambleside On the Lake’ in Daylesford about six years ago after finding the accommodation on the internet. The service and accommodation was of ‘high standard’ the picturesque view looking over the lake from the balcony is so relaxing and inviting that we decided that we would go there again.

Suitable for couples like us who need seperate rooms due to one party snoring !! Linda accommodated us perfectly. We were opposite each other off the hall perfect. Thanks for your caring hospitality with this and much advice (even about our dog who was sick at home.) Linda went out of her way.

My fiancé and I stayed here for two nights over Grand Final weekend. It was lovely - spacious, comfortable, cosy. It is not a hotel, however it does have many of the same amenities. Wonderful soaps, toiletries, clean and soft towels, hairdryer... The kitchenette was great to make a casual cup of tea, including a selection of teas and plunger... More

Linda and Frank went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and were great hosts. The location is ideal and views are stunning. It's only a short walk to the lake and... More

Linda and Frank were wonderful hosts. We highly recommend the breakfast Linda and Frank provide. Every choice was delicious and served in the general dining area overlooking the lake views. We loved that our room was warm on arrival. In particular, when we had a day out all day, finding the room heating was turned on when we returned was... More

Lovely setting on the lake. Good heating in the rooms on the coldest days of the year! Cosy traditional decor. Got out and about just the same - walked around the lake, had tea at the Book Barn, visited the Convent gallery and the shops in town. No problems with WiFi for us. A bit expensive for B&B but typical... More

As usual, comfortable stay, great hosts in Frank and Linda and wonderfully warm accommodation on what was a bitterly cold couple of Daylesford days. Thank you Ambleside. Will book again early in the 2016 year.
