It was closed. We drove all the way to the town only to find that no one was around and everything locked up.

The Farmers Arms Hotel accommodation was ok. The room was smaller than the pictures. And out look from the room as it was behind the cottage. The bed was comfortable and the heater was on when we arrived. No cups or spoons for tea and coffee.

We appreciate your feedback and always take it on-board, I'm sorry to hear that you felt the room was smaller than what you expected, and apologise for the lack of cups and spoons in the room. Overall I hope your trip to Daylesford was a pleasant one.

The staff were very well trained. They were very attentive but not intrusive. They let their personalities shine through! The food was very good.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience here at the Farmers and in Daylesford overall. Thank you for noting the quality of food at the Farmers. We boast a truly seasonal menu, focusing on highlighting local and in-season produce. We deliver dishes that reflect the best of the region, sourcing from local organic farms and produce growers to ensure not only sustainable and tasty dishes, but also generous and deliciously flavoured meals. We can't wait to welcome you back next time you are in Daylesford."

Not sure exactly how this is classed as a 4.5 star accommodation on Wotif? It’s basically a freshly painted glorified roadside motel. Comfortable for a sleep if you aren’t expecting anything special. Calling yourself a Hotel though is just plain lying. It’s a 2.5-3 star Motel at best. Disappointed.

Thank you for your feedback. We are constantly using guest feedback to ensure everyone who dines or stays with us has the most comfortable and positive experience possible. I'm very sorry to hear that you did not like the styling of our Suites, as advertised on all of our booking platforms, our motel suites are Art themed, meaning the artwork changes regularly as artist residencies change, or as people buy pieces from the collection. This can mean sometimes we have to do a little bit of reshuffling of the furniture from room to room to ensure the rooms look co-ordinated and put together. However, you can be assured that the rooms are always designed to be of the greatest quality and comfort. We hope you had a good stay in Daylesford overall. Safe Travels!

The only down side to our visit was the fact that you have to check in at the Farmer's Arms Hotel, whereas the accommodation is across the road. The hotel was full of Saturday evening drinkers and diners and so 'checking in' is a question of catching the eye of one of the staff who knows about the accommodation.

The Property appeared to be quite new. it was very clean and tidy. However we felt it was poorly furnished as it lacked a table and chair to sit at. The minny bar was free however the offing was quite small and not restocked after our first night. The room was more of an old style motel not a hotel. Big picture I did not think it was value for money.
