  • Charming 19th century mansion high on Wombat Hill overlooking the township of Daylesford with gorgeous views. There is so much to see while wandering inside and outside this intriguing building set on six acres of prime land. The mansion includes a unique 3 level gallery of different types of fine art, a retail area, chapel and nuns museum.
  • Absolutely delightful staff. Particularly the lovely young lady who served me and was quite the singer. Sorry I can't remember your name but you'll know who you are. What a treasure you are. The convent and gallery is amazing. The altar bar...wow! Will certainly return when I'm next in Daylesford.
  • Nice cafĂ©. Interesting little art gallery, even if you're not religious
  • we had a large family high tea for my mums 90th birthday, not enough food provided for the number of people and the $1100 spent, position of table outside awful. View of car park and no privacy and not accessible, had to step on garden to get to other end of table. Some staff were great (Dee) but the service for food and drinks and general information was slow and unprofessional. Overall very disappointed and unhappy. Will not be returning!
  • Old nun convent. Nice architecture and good modern art gallery
