Dangerously slippery front and rear steps. Freezing cold house on arrival. Filthy dirty house. Gas cook top leaking and filthy. Dangerous wiring. Light globe exploded over our food. Verandah timber Flooring is rotting and dangerous. Dust everywhere ( the bedroom furniture had layers of dust in and behind, as did curtains ) especially heating ducts which resulted in all of us having eye and sinus reactions TV remote has a battery melted into it that rendered it unusable. No WiFi No Dishwasher Tablets. Nice area but this property desperately needs an overhaul and a deep clean of everything!
A weekend away
Have stayed previously and it’s a great little house (certainly not 5 star but nice basic accommodation. Unfortunately this time it was quite dirty and needs some TLC. Eg lights not working 3 light globes need replacing (Dining, back porch and third bedroom) batteries in remotes need replacing. Newspaper and firewood in the baskets would be great. Yes the wood shed was full but when you arrive in the dark and the lights don’t work it makes it a little difficult. Couches need a good steam clean or replace. Location is good, just needs some TLC
While the size of the property and the location is perfect, the property managers needs to pay more attention to the cleanliness of the property. Every room was dusty, the walls dirty. There are not enough glasses to cover the amount of people staying. We were two, but what happens if the booking was for more? We had planned on using the BBQ but it was disgustingly dirty. Great to stay in if you’re only sleeping there.
Whilst an older style house, it is well maintained and very clean. The location is very quiet and convenient distance to centre of Daylesford. Steepness of access road nearly brought us unstuck with loaded car trailer. Would use this house again when next visiting this area.
Stanhope Retreat Daylsford
Basic clean & comfortable . Good value. Garden could be a little tidier.
We have owned and rented the property since we purchased it in 2008.
steven purchased this House in 2008
Why steven chose Daylesford
The property is a cozy house with a great open fire and fantastic central heating for the colder days but also has air conditioning. We are 5 minutes walk to the botanical gardens, 10 minutes from maid 15 minutes walk to the gallery.
