Very quaint stone cottages, very well appointed and comfortable with abundant breakfast provisions and chocolates. Our hosts were amazing, they were very kind and helpful. The gardens are extensive, beautiful and very relaxing. I would highly recommend this property.

Stayed: March 2017

Warm and welcoming from the outset! Sue the host had gone out of her way to make us welcome and comfortable. We are Coeliacs and Sue had sourced Gluten free bread and treats for us making us feel oh so special!! On arrival the fridge was stocked with everything required for a weekend getaway, perfect hosting!
The cottage is an authentic Bluestone cottage from 1859 but had all the comforts of a contemporary home including spa bath and AC. The bed was so comfy and the linen was gorgeous!
The setting at Brim Brim was sensational - so picturesque. The mature gardens were a joy to walk through - definitely worthwhile. An added bonus for us was that our dogs were also welcomed.
This stay is ideally located just far enough away from Melbourne but close enough to Ballarat and Daylesford. We will definitely be back and plan to stay longer. Loved It!!!

Room Tip: Choose the cute cottage

Nice and peaceful property and a beautiful setting. Will be back soon.
Enjoyed the open fire and well welcomed by the hosts and the corgies.
Enjoyed the cafes and pizza places in Buninyong and the kids loved Sovereign Hill.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. Such a beautiful house and set up. The breakfast was so delicious and fresh. It was a great place to relax and escape Melbourne. We also appreciated the warm welcome and personal touches.

Room Tip: There are 2 cottages - we stayed in Cedar which is the larger of the 2 which also has a spa bath

Did not make us feel welcome!

The venue is under new management (since the old positive reviews were left.)

The owners now are very touchy about who's allowed to visit guests, and also very insistent that no photos on the garden are permitted... Kind of a counterintuitive way to treats paying guests.

The grouchy owner kept saying things like "as my personal property" and "it's a private property" when we asked if members of our family could take some photos there - even though we had asked and booked many months in advance - super weird as we were guests and had paid to be treated as guests with access to the property, not as random trespassers!
