We could not have asked for anything more. Great location, only steps away from the lake, fantastic views, walking distance to restaurants, town centre was only a 20minute walk or 2 min drive. Our room was modern, clean, comfortable, air-conditioned, free wifi, Netflix. Breakfast is served either in your room or on your private balcony, with hot & cold options, was plentiful, delicious and of a 5 star restaurant quality. Thank you to our hosts, Michael & Russell, communication & hospitality were spot on. We had a great girls weekend away staying at Balconies Lakeside.

Not sure where to start, from the moment we arrived we felt like we were very welcome. The room was beautiful and we were greeted by subtle, inviting music. Being quite tired we went to sleep after completing out breakfast menu, which btw was quite comprehensive. Woke up to a stunning view over the lake and were greeted by our hosts in the morning delivering our breakfast. Can not praise our hosts enough, extremely pleasant and accommodating and they deliver a very mean breakfast. The breakfast was like you would expect in a 5 star restaurant, not in a B&B, would come back for the breakfast alone. In a nut shell, the accommodation was very clean and very well appointed, stunning view over the lake and our hosts could not be more pleasant, overall one of the best B&B's we have stayed at.

Absolutely loved it , million dollar views over lake , awesome location for walks around lake and walk into town or nearby eateries . Very tranquil , listening to sounds of birds and ducks , Accommodation was faultless , even got an upgrade to bigger very modern room , comfortable king size bed , luxury London Molton Brown bathroom toiletries , value for money and very friendly and welcoming hosts , couldn’t do enough for us , explained and recommended where to go and eat around Daylesford , the best home cooked gourmet breakfast with homemade jams . Did look around at other accommodation before we booked , glad we chose this one . We will return . Don’t think about it , just book it , highly recommended and great value .
