Carrington House is a nicely run operation, seven well appointed rooms, all with ensuite ( I think room 2 is the smallest) our bed and pillows were fine; large lounge and even larger living dining are with two sets of double doors that open out to the outside deck. The building is in great condition and looks new and fresh.... More

It's cold in Daylesford in July, but Carrington House was a delightful, warm, and convenient oasis within walking distance of the main street. There were two beautifully appointed sitting rooms where my wife and I ate cheese and drank wine in the afternoon. The bedroom and en-suite were comfortable and we got an excellent night's sleep.

At the prices charged I expect my bed to be made and at least a basic clean....well below value for money. Lift your game It does not provide breakfast facilities either so all you get for you money (not cheap) is a bed

Really enjoyed staying here. Met the owner (as we arrived early) in the front garden - lovely lady and very helpful. This place is spotless and well appointed. The bedrooms are not overly large (good quality linen and bedclothes) but the house is, thus there are several areas to sit and unwind. The laundry area is great and would be... More
