This property was clean and spacious with a real feeling of warmth and relaxation. The host Russell and Michael were lovely, our cooked breakfast was delicious too. We had a lovely relaxed stay and wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely go back and would highly recommend this property.

Had a quick one night parent escape. Great location on the lake. Hosts were very friendly, welcoming and informative. We had a fantastic room, clean and modern, great view over the lake. Walking distance to the Main Street. Best of all though was the breakfast. Wow.

Balconies Lakeside is a stunning bed and breakfast, the room was so clean and modern and Michael and Russell were the perfect hosts. We were upgraded to the "million dollar view" room and boy, was Michael right! The view from the balcony was so beautiful, looking out over Lake Daylesford, it was a very relaxing place to sit and watch the world go by. The included breakfast was absolutely magnificent! Both my husband and I have a specific dietary need and Michael designed a wonderful, custom menu from which we could choose from several delectable options. We were amazed by the quality of the food and Russell's impeccable room service. The room itself was so comfortable and clean. The renovations that have been completed are so modern, the bed super comfy and the bathroom very beautiful and functional. On arrival, our room was already cool thanks to the airconditioner having been turned on before we arrived. There was also relaxing music already playing, small touches that did not go unnoticed and were certainly appreciated. Guests have access to the stunningly landscaped backyard, complete with water feature, pond and fish, which also noasts access to the lake's walking track. I simply cannot fault this accommodation and we stay stay there again in a heartbeat. I recommend you do yourself a favour and visit this beautiful bed and breakfast.
