“Fabulous place for a relaxing getaway”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We recently spent 3 nights at Briars Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is in a great location with a lovely bush outlook and with all the privacy one could want.
The cottage is extremely well appointed in all facets - kitchen set-up and all the little extras which are provided; the lounge and dining area and the deck out the back overlooking the bush area. Bed was very comfy and bathrooms are well appointed. Daylesford is a great spot for exploring this region of Victoria - there are numerous great restaurants and cafes from which to choose not to mention all the wineries.

“Tranquil cottage in Daylesford”
Reviewed 13 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Excellent communication and care from owners. Champagne, bottled water, condiments, teas and chocolates are lovely treats on arrival. Great location and quiet. The 2 story cottage gave our family space alone and together. My teenage son loved the outside spa bath. The extra touches of lap blankets and candles made it feel homely. There's plenty of accommodation in Daylesford or Hepburn Springs, though I'd recommend Daylesford in preference. Although we love a good hotel, the privacy of Briar's Cottage was a much better choice and gave us flexibility to cook or not. There are lovely cafe and food options in Daylesford.
I would have liked a longer stay at Briars Cottage and will happily return.

Beautiful location in bushland with rosellas and carrawongs. The spa is lovely, furnishings are homely and stylish and self contained. Very clean. No complaints, perfect little cottage to stay. I hope to stay longer than 1 night next time. Thank you Briars Cottage! :-)

“A Cozy Cottage”
Reviewed 6 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

That was my honeymoon trip to Briars Cottage. It was a comfortable accommodation provided everything we needed such as different cooking seasonings, bath salt, etc. The most impressive facility was the spa bath at the balcony surrounded by candles. Inside the bath, we could enjoy a hot bath and look at the green views outside.
Briars Cottage surely was the most enjoyable accommodation in my honeymoon trip. I would recommend my friend to stay.

“Bliss - great place to unwind”
Reviewed 3 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

If you are wanting to feel like you have escaped the rat race and need to relax and unwind then Briars is the perfect place to do exactly that. No need to leave the cottage if you don't want to. Great selection of DVDs and good size couch to spread out on, spa on the deck overlooking the gully, private, full cooking facilities and the the most comfy bed. Located between Daylesford and Hepburn however it was an easy walk into town and down to the lake. We dined at the Farmers Arms and Mercato and both were very good.
Thanks to the hosts Di & Duncan. They have thought of everything and we look forward to our next stay.
