My partner and I had a lovely time at the hideaway villa. We definitely loved the spa bath. Loved the seclusion and peacefulness of the property. The property was lovely and we loved our time there. Will definitely be back.

In all honesty, I feel like my money was very much wasted. When we walked into the villa the first thing we notice is the state of the place. Cobwebs everywhere, crumbs on the floor, stains on walls and bedsheets, spa in desperate need of some scrubbing, furniture older than my grandparents, tv the size of my pinky, utensils all grumy, sticky and honestly off putting, plates had stain along with the pots and pans. Nothing was relaxing about this place. It was so bad that we left a day earlier because we were that unhappy. I would definitely not recommend this place. If you owned a place in a secluded area the least you can do is check if your cleaners are doing their job properly. What a nightmare!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Cliffs Resort in the Dusk Spa Villa, we had a 3 kangaroo welcoming party when we first arrived. The decor was great, loved the wood fire, spa bath and detox box (sauna). It was so incredibly peaceful and tranquil, pretty much the only sounds you hear are water running in the stream at the bottom of the property, the birds chirping and the breeze blowing. We were lucky to have the first 24 hours completely to ourselves as the only people there and enjoyed a long walk exploring the property. I loved relaxing on the daybed, reading my book in the sunshine and sitting by the toasty wood fire at night. It was a short 10-15 min drive into the main street of Daylesford with our complimentary voucher for brunch at The Larder Cafe, which we really

As Blue Cliffs is situated in a quiet, secluded area, we were disappointed that the owner had not made an effort to present our cottage at its best. The bed was comfortable and the spa was relaxing. However, there was quite a number of maintenance issues in need of attention and some areas were in dire need of a clean. Three windows lacked blinds, basic shower toiletries and breakfast snack were not provided and the fire place had not been cleaned after the previous occupants. Better value accommodation can be found elsewhere.

Response from BlueCliffsRetreat, Owner at Blue Cliffs Retreat
Responded 28 Jul 2018
Not sure who wrote this or what villa they were in; however, generally, windows that face the natural scene outside and are not visible to other guests intentionally do not have blinds to allow the view. And shampoo, conditioner, body wash and a breakfast snack are always provided. Since no specific cleaning issues were named, hard to address vague comments.
