On hearing the new owners of Holyrood House had restored their 1864 Federation House we called to make a reservation. Alas they were not opening for a few weeks i.e. end April. However they would accommodate us for our Wedding Anniversary on March 31. Hosts are Andrew (professional Butler and Chef) and his partner Keith who have been renovating for... More

Thank you Barbara L for your lovely review of Holyrood. It was our absolute delight to have you here as our first guests after the lengthy 2.5 year renovation of this wonderful house. After one hundred years as a guesthouse- it was time for a little more than a face lift. We will of course have WiFi added shortly as... More

The house has lovely old world charm and is conveniently located in central daylesford in walking distance to everything. The hosts are most friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast is a cut above the average with lovely home made jams. My only negative is it did feel a little like we were in someone else's house, which is all part... More

What a find Holyrood House proved to be! We have stayed at B&B's before but this occasion proved to be outstanding. On arrival we were greeted at the door by Andrew & Yong who proved to be very welcoming, charming & informative.

We were made to feel so welcome by our gracious and interesting hosts. I was even able to invite the other members of my choir, there for the Daylesford Singers Festival, to rehearse. Andrew made us all welcome. The cake and cuppa on arrival, the nibbles and drinks before dinner and the teddies in the beds were a lovely touch.... More

We have stayed at this charming B&B several times over the past few years. The rambling Victorian house is beautifully appointed and comfortable, however it's the owners, Andrew and Teck who make every stay special. Breakfasts are superb with homemade preserves, stewed fruit from the garden and cooked treats. Drinks and nibbles in front of the fire in winter or... More
