Guest Reviews

A luxurious place of peace, quiet, tranquility and sublime relaxation! The sense of calm and relaxation began as I walked in. Staff so friendly and helpful. When I arrived at Illoura I knew I had booked the right place - simple but lovely. Walked inside and just loved all that I saw - understated luxury, everything I could possibly need (including champagne in the refrigerator and KoKo Black chocolates by the bed)! Beautiful furnishings and comfortable bed. The tranquility was astounding - just wanted to sit on the porch and sip my champagne listening to the birds. Didn't think I would want to leave the house - and hardly did. Huge TV and yummy chair to sit in to watch it. This is just a perfect place and although I have stayed in many places in Daylesford which I have loved, I will now always come back to Illoura - no question about it! Can't wait to return - thanks for a perfect stay.

I am in love - this house is just divine. The ambiance is delightful. We loved waking up to the sun shining in and the birds. All the little extras such as chocolates and champagne were a welcome surprise! We don't want to leave, it's stunning! Thank you for a fabulous weekend.

This is a wonderful spot in Daylesford just a short walk from the centre of town and the Convent Gallery. The place is extremely comfortable and very charming in so many ways. There is plenty of Brian's art to admire. Its features are excellent with everything you need in the kitchenette and bathroom, and the living room is very spacious and homely. Great spot
