It is clear that the hosts take a lot of care and pride in the property and we also really enjoyed interacting with them, particularly when seeking some local advice. We loved sitting on the balcony in the evening watching the bird life and... More

This is a wonderful B&B that includes all the comforts of home. Wonderful hosts provided a great breakfast, and the furnishings were terrific. With wonderful views over Lake Daylesford, it is close to many great walks.

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
