“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

My daughter and I spent the weekend in Daylesford and stayed at Avala. We found our room to be spotless. The bathroom was spacious and the small kitchenette was a nice area to prepare a meal. The bed was extremely comfortable. We loved the mini golf. We laughed all the way round the course and had a great time. Our hosts were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay thee again.

We have just retuned from 3 nights staying in the sunrise spa suite. The room is lovely and cozy and very clean. The bed is amazingly comfortable and exceptionally warm considering it was quite cool during our stay. The owners are amazingly friendly and ensure that you have everything you need, they go above and beyond. Well done on a beautiful place to stay, we will definitely be back and will recommend this lovely place to all out friends.

This is not even a hotel. Extremely overpriced for this style of accommodation. Rooms are nothing like photos - more like cabin style accommodation. Bathroom is tiny. Very noisy. Uncomfortable bed. Chocolates are not worth mentioning. Not very welcoming. Breakfast is very basic.

My partner and I stayed here on a Saturday night last month. The accommodation is situated almost halfway between Hepburn Springs and Daylesford so not really walking distance to any restaurants or pubs or anywhere really. The room was lovely and clean with nice fittings and a very nice spa that took up most of the bathroom space. We had a little trouble with the stove top - an electronic type that didn't like having 2 frypans on it at the same time. We had a lovely balcony outside our sliding door that offered scenic views of the countryside. Great staff and extremely helpful, providing local maps and information. The mini golf course which overlooked our room looked cute with its different themes, although we didn't get a chance to play.

Room Tip: Choose a corner room upstairs - more private and only have to share a large balcony with one other r...

The website is, unfortunately, very misleading. The room was small with no view and didn't smell great, the 'chocolates on arrival' were cheap and tiny. The towels were undersized, not hotel standard or even soft. The BBQ was dirty. The mini-golf was a bit of fun but not enough to make this stay worthwhile. Considering we have stayed at a number of luxury hotels in Melbourne and overseas for less than this we were disappointed and felt very ripped off for what we paid.

Avala looks good on paper (or the Internet). The photos make the room look clean, tidy and modern.

The reality is that the rooms are little more than a well appointed cabin. With squeaky floorboards above, below and outside you will hear movement at all hours. This is definitely not the place if you want some peace and quiet. On some websites it is also not mentioned that the accommodation literally backs on to a mini golf course, so during peak season expect rowdy patrons spoiling your day.

Aside from the noise, and what made this place infinitely worse, was the cleanliness. I returned the kitchen dishes to reception as they had not been washed from the previous patron. When the manager came in to give me a new set she checked the fridge and removed something that had either been stored or left behind. 'Personal products' were found after my first night there which made me question whether any cleaning apart from making the bed had taken place.

I left early.
