                                                      A beautiful little cottage in a great location. We loved our stay in this comfortable spot. Hepburn springs is lovely, Daylesford is lovely and artisan retreat is wonderful.

                                                      Hi Lauren,

                                                      Thanks so much for your great feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back.


                                                      Quaint property with room for improvement!

                                                      Cherie R.Melton West

                                                      Quaint but not properly maintained. Lawn not cut, dirty glasses in kitchen, dead insects on bedside table closest to window, fur/hair balls on kitchen floor and Dustbuster unusable as totally clogged. On the upside, bed and pillows lovely and comfortable and the bathroom with double spa was excellent.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Dear Cherie, We do appreciate you taking the time to review your stay at Artisan Retreat, and we do take on board all of your feedback. I’m not sure if you happened to notice our other reviews, which all have a 5 star rating for cleanliness, so of course this feedback has come as a shock to us. We will be addressing all of the items you mentioned and have complete confidence that we will have Artisan Retreat back to its 5 star rating immediately. Thanks again. Jodie

                                                      Close to Hepburn shops and very cosy living space and beds

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Dear Anthea, Thanks for taking the time to review Artisan Retreat and we are glad you found it cosy. We have noted that you rated ‘quality’ at 3 stars which is below the standard we wish to provide to our guests. Was there anything particular you noticed that warranted that score? We regularly update our furnishings, accessories and electrical equipment to keep everything at a high standard so I would be interested to know. Kind regards, Jodie

                                                      A beautiful experience

                                                      WILLIAM B.Hobart, Tasmania,

                                                      We have travelled extensively around this country and have seldom enjoyed a stay as much as we did in Daylesford and at Artisan.

                                                      Accommodation is often a gamble and there is always something to mar the experience. Therefore it was an extremely pleasant surprise to find Artisan living up to its claims. It was an extremely enjoyable experience, from the peace and quiet, to the well-equipped cottage, to the beautiful fire, to the well-stocked cupboards.

                                                      It was a beautiful experience and one that we shall hope to repeat.

                                                      Hi William, thank you so much for your lovely feedback. Artisan Retreat is very special to us and we love others to experience what we do. So I am glad we achieved this and so very happy you enjoyed your stay.. Regards, Jodie

                                                      We had a wonderful stay at the Artisan Retreat! The house had everything you could think of and we just spent the whole weekend relaxing and enjoying the surrounds.

                                                      Thanks for a great stay!

                                                      Artisan was a property suited to our comfort and needs. Stayed for a week and enjoyed the location quietness ammenities large yard for the dogs great beds and overall cleanliness. Hppe to visit in the winter to enjoy the fire!
