With your room just a convenient walk across the road, there’s no need to worry about who the designated driver will be.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautifully appointed rooms with all the amenities you could possibly need! Very comfortable king size bed & walking distance to Farmers Arms Hotel. Definitely value for money. Nespresso machine, complimentary bar snacks and lovely bathroom products.

Great place to stay for over night/weekend. Rooms are large with great facilities. Very clean and well maintained. Little bistro table and chairs outside room for added extra. Pub/ hotel across the way serving food. Easy access into the centre of Daylesford.

Stayed in the heritage cottage and it was fabulous, 3br, bathroom with shower and 2 toilets, kitchen/living area and a good sized deck with furniture. Very quiet, didn't hear any people staying in the motel and no road noise. Pub across the road, cafes and restaurants 5 min walk and a 10 min walk in to town. Highly recommend.

Very attractively decorated room and bathroom. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Even though this is a self check in motel, the service was great. I had not received the email with check in details so I called the day before our arrival. Got someone on the phone right away and they quickly sorted everything. Loved the extra perk of free drinks and snacks (I think they were free, haven't seen a charge on our bill yet ;-). Lots of great amenities, wonderful bathroom with really nice products. The only downside is that there was no closet or drawers (could have been a problem if staying more than a night or two) and there was no extra blanket, pillows or towels. Since the guest services close at 5 PM there was no one to ask for these or other things we may need. The heater was ok and the bedding warm enough, luckily, on the cold and rainy night we stayed. But I did need an extra towel. In this kind of self check in situation, extra things should be provided for. But otherwise we really did like the place and would stay again (now that we know what to request in advance!)

There is no hot water in our room on two of the days of our stay. We had to complain about it and somehow the problem was fixed....temporarily at least. There was no wardrobe in which to hang our the only hanger provided was probably designed as a coat rack The room looked and felt like we were in transit to somewhere better. The fridge had no ice compartment and so no drinking was available within the room without our begging for ice from nearby hotels. The TV screen was permanently fixed facing the bed but does not tilt towards the sofa so the only way that you could watch TV comfortably was when you're in bed!. Really a totally substandard experience after paying $1250 for 4 night stay. Daylesford deserves better than this Staying here does you no favour when wishing to eat across the street at The Farmer's Arms.

It was only a one night stay, but so lovely. A fairly standard motel room set up but very tastefully renovated. The art on the wall was beautiful and all for sale. Bathroom a modern, clean renovation, good amenities. The bed, King sized, was 11/10. SO COMFORTABLE. Lovely new linen (as were the thick, fluffy towels). Pillows as well, pure luxury. Would totally recommend this property.

This very clean, cosy cottage was pefect for our short stay for a wedding in Daylesford. Three VERY comfy and warm king beds meant a great nights sleep after a big day. The booking agents are very easy to deal with and were very prompt respondiong to our questions.

Arrived and no power at all on site. We received a phone call saying our booking at the farmers arms for dinner was cancelled as they didn’t have power, but no one at the motel bothered to call us to tell us. We travelled into town to find a restaurant with power so we could eat, came back expecting the free in room mini bar, no mini bar in room. Bed was comfortable, pillows are way too soft and flatten easily. Tastefully decorated, large bathroom was good and Netflix access on smart tv was perfect.

We found the Art Motel suite where we stayed to be spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished yet a minimalist feel, not overdone but with touches of luxury. The bed linen was crisp white and so inviting. The bed was oh so comfy, beautifully decant and huge. The bathroom was the height of a five star hotel luxury with large shower head and L’Occitane bathroom products which were fresh and perfect for male and female tastes. I would have liked a small table to put a drink on when sitting on the lounge and a couple of teaspoons with the stylish cups and saucers provided.

We stayed in the house, not the Art Motel Rooms. At almost $1200 for our two day stay, We expected more. Our two emails requesting single beds were not ‘received’ by the hotel so we were stuck with double beds. We had a kitchenette but no dishwashing liquid, dishwasher tabs or even a tea towel. The dish cloth was old and grubby. There were six of us with 4 espresso pods for coffee and no milk. The response when I contacted the property after our stay was, that we stayed two nights and should have asked. Believe me, we did! We were also under the impression there would be a mini bar, but no, that’s only for the motel rooms. These little things really make a difference and left us disappointed.
