Hired this on recommendation of friends. Took the villa and hired the cellar for a big birthday including catering. The villa was great with lovely bedrooms and living spaces. The cellar and canapés were great though not cheap. all my friends said the would love to come back.
Good breakfast and next time we said we would simply hang around the resort and eat and drink there though the restaurant wine list may need a push to be more interesting.
Walking distance to spa centre etc.

The Mineral Spring was great,the staff except one person were fantastic. They couldn't do enough for us. Michael on booking in, when our room was too small, moved us to a villa, which was fab. Michael was so accommodating and gave us a really great welcome. The restaurant staff were wonderful. The food from nature to plate and really good. The spa treatments were pricey but good. The retreat spa pool area itself was smaller than we expected and not as grand. But we had a pleasant relax in that area all the same. Our only disappointment was checking out. A chap called John was pompous, rude and had no understanding of the bill or the offers. It was a disappointment to end our long weekend on that note. But all in all this is a great place. Also location near to Daylesford is great. We went off for a wander round and shop around the quaint tourist show and got some great little items. Also had a wonderful dinner in Daylesford too

Room Tip: The two storey villas are tops!

I was really excited about booking a room with the private spa on the balcony - Unfortunately Peppers version of privacy and my version don't match. The spa bath looked out over the road and into the property across the street. Not ideal when you just want to relax.

Dear Rindabel
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you were not entirely satisfied with your accommodation and perhaps on a future stay you would like to check out our Deluxe Spa or Villa rooms, each styled with an elegant 2 person spa.

My cousin and I stayed in the Mineral Spa Villa 236 and left feeling extraordinarily relaxed and pampered. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, one even ran out some tomato sauce to our suite one evening as we forgot to purchase some from the supermarket to go with our pies! They even let us hang around till midday before checking out. The Mineral Spa was amazing, the soft bed option is a must if you want to try something different. I don't usually write reviews but felt that I needed to after this stay. If you need to get away and want some luxury and rest, i would highly recommend staying here. It's worth the money.

Stayed recently for an anniversary, welcoming staff, excellent surroundings, culinary delights for breakfast and dinner, cosy rooms with spa indulgence, and the spa retreat was magnificent.
We had a very relaxing romantic stay and certainly will be back again...

Room Tip: Spa villas are quiet and out of the way of the main area

After visiting Peppers Mineral Spa in Daylesford for 6 years in a row with a group of girlfriends for our annual girls weekend, the service and the therapists only seem to get better each year!
A professional and friendly team in the most beautiful environment draws us back each year.
Highly recommend a visit to this amazing Day Spa!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Set in Victoria's picturesque Daylesford and Macedon Ranges, this grand 1930's guest house has been transformed into one of regional Victoria's finest heritage country hotels; with stylish lounges, cocktail bar, leafy gardens and stunning courtyards. Situated in Hepburn Springs, just three minutes from Daylesford, 60 minutes from Melbourne airport and 75 minutes from Melbourne CBD, Peppers Mineral Springs Hotel wraps you in comfortable elegance with 40 stylish rooms to choose from; including a self contained 1864 Villa Parma with four exquisite bedrooms, roomy self-contained villas, heritage hotel rooms and cosy garden rooms, with interiors created by designer Stuart Rattle. All rooms have an ensuite bathroom, individual climate control, tea/coffee making facilities, minibar, refrigerators, TV, DVD, iron and ironing board, hairdryer & direct dial STD/ISD telephones. After a long day of exploring, sink into the deep club chairs and sofas around a roaring fire at The Argus Bar & Lounge, one-part private club, and two-part return of old world glamour. The soul of this relaxed haven lies in tradition and warmth, with surroundings that reflect this quiet, intimate and inviting atmosphere. One of the great pleasures of staying here is the multi award-winning Mineral Spa, tucked in the grounds of the hotel. Mineral Spa is one of the largest and most acclaimed rural day spas in Australia; winners of Australasian Spa Association Best Hotel and Best Day Spa, as well as the Victorian Tourism Award winners for Health and Wellness (Hall of Fame) and the Spa Life magazine reader's choice for Best Destination Spa. Specifically designed as a sanctuary of healing and relaxation, therapists each have their own area of expertise. They are selected for their healing hands and calming spirits, ensuring that every guest experiences a beautiful and personal spa experience; with individual consultations and exclusive specialist treatments. As part of its philosophy for integrating healing through earth's natural elements, Mineral Spa has harnessed the power of mineral water, unlike any other spa in Australia. The spa's key feature of healing through water is The Retreat; a mineral water therapy zone following in the healing traditions of the famous mineral spas throughout Europe. Tucked in a private and peaceful indoor/outdoor corner of the spa, The Retreat comprises two 100% mineral water spas, a cold plunge pool, steam room, infra-red detox box and the only basalt stone sauna in the Southern Hemisphere. During the winter months, The Retreat turns into a steamy twilight haven with Night Bathing every Friday evening. Water continues as a healing theme that runs throughout the entire spa, with highlights such as the 180 power jet massaging Hydro baths and Australasia's only Soft Pack Floatation Beds. Signature treatments are by the prestigious spa specialist, Pevonia Botanica. The Spa Menu is extensive and includes specialist healing treatments such as pregnancy and oncology massages. In keeping with the sense of tranquility, Mineral Spa is architecturally designed to reflect the environment and landscape, creating an ambience of healing; suffused with natural light shimmering across white stone walls, enhanced by the soothing sound of flowing water, and breathtaking views into the countryside. Maintenance Notice: The Argus Dining Room will be closed for renovations from Monday 13th April until Thursday 30th April 2015. The Argus Bar & Lounge will be open during this time for lunch & dinner. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. ... more   less
