Visit Daylesford and stayed in a little cottage, came to the Royal hotel for dinner on our last night. The food was appalling, fish and chips were chewy and tasteless, the open souvlaki was incredibly lacklustre and everything was VERY overpriced, including the drinks. Staff were friendly, but the underwhelming food ruined the experience - I would avoid eating here... More

I am a critic . Charge me good money , then I expect service and some value for money. As I'm part local and this is probably the only place in Dayelsford that serve meals till 9 pm, I eat her a lot . Pity there is no other option as this place is real hit and miss . Mostly... More

We took up a hotel package for a Monday night which included a bottle of wine, a $50 voucher towards the meal and a late check out. The Thai salad was amazing and the hospitality was genuine. However the noise of the pokies was blasting into the room until 2am. It spoilt the romantic getaway I was imagining. It was... More

Fabulous room and spa bath. Staff are friendly and helpful. Dining room serves great food. What more could one want and only 45 minutes from our front door. Daylesford has much to offer - the Convent Gallery, cafes, trendy shops, the Paradise Book Shop (I never miss going here), a great fish and chip shop and, of course, relaxation massages... More

We managed to get the last room for a weekend and from the moment we arrived it was lovely. The girls on reception gave us all the information we needed and more, the hotel is really nicely renovated and well run. Our room opened out on the to gorgeous large balcony overlooking the Main Street, it was really nicely decorated... More

Staffs are very very friendly, helpful, and amenities are clean. Rooms are cosy, only downside is we don't get wifi in our room. Maybe it's too far from the reception area. A $50 voucher is included during check in as well, to be used for food or drinks which is really cool. Food is great there. The room I'm in... More

Beautiful historic pub with 10 rooms in middle of Daylesford. Very friendly staff, great and cooked to liking tender steaks. Room (no. 6) is recently refurbished with style and comfort in mind. Both room and bathroom are huge, bathroom having double spa bath as well as large shower. Bottle of Rutherglen bubbly, $50 voucher and 12noon check out are bonuses.... More

My husband and I recently purchased a deal for this hotel on Groupon for one night away. We were in the Executive suite which was huge. It had a beautifully fitted out room with a King Size bed and a very large bathroom with a corner spa. Our suite had it's own balcony looking over the side street. Staff were... More

Great location - very close to everything. Executive suite was very nice - stylishly decorated. Large spa bath and large shower. Seemed clean and fresh, except for the champagne glasses which had not been washed properly - someone else's lipstick! The other negative was that suites are very close to the road, which was quite noisy in the morning. Ate... More

Beautiful hotel in Main Street Daylesford, spacious large clean comfortable rooms with balcony access for a relaxing drink, great bistro and meal variety. Easy walk to all the town has to offer. Excellent accomodation package. We couldn't fault this hotel with very friendly accomodating staff. Highly recommend will definitely be returning.
