if you’ve ever driven through Daylesford, you’ve probably seen this place. A true European vibe on the corner of Vincent Street and Central Springs Road with its elaborate vine covered verandah terrace.
Hotel Frangos and Koukla are located in the same building and will be a cornerstone for your visit to Daylesford. Weather it be for an early morning coffee, a spot of lunch, a delicious pizza in the courtyard or a late night cocktail – you can’t go wrong with Hotel Frangos.
Koukla Cafe is directly on the corner and opens at 7.30am, 7 days a week. One of the best coffee places in town. The Restaurant and Bar next door, along with the beautiful courtyard in the back has a real European vibe.
The menu is simple and offers a range of pizzas, salads and some more substantial items. If you don’t feel like eating out, Hotel Frangos serve all their pizzas for take away as well.
Fancy a cheeky cocktail after dinner? Hotel Frangos is the perfect place to be, often staying open much longer than most other restaurants and bars, the hotel bar serves a great selection of cocktails and local wines.
The bar and restaurant are open from 7.30am, 7 days a week until late. Reservations are only required for dinner and can be made via their website.
Hotel Frangos is perfect if you’re travelling with your dog. Both the front terrace and the courtyard are dog friendly. The courtyard can be accessed via the side (on Central Springs Road), so you don’t have to go through Hotel Frangos.
Hotel Frangos is one the cutest boutique hotels in town and offers 15 individually designed (and named!) suites. One of which is named after and features a mural wall by local artist, David Bromley.
Every suite offers all you need from a boutique hotel including free wifi, tea making facilities, complimentary parking and air con.
Out of the 15 suites, two suites offer a Queen Bed (Walnut and the Nest Suite), 12 have a king bed and then there is the Bromley Suite. Interestingly enough, Hotel Frangos seems to price all suites at the same level (generally around $259 per night) – so it pays to book early so you can select the suite of your choice.
Breakfast is not included but available downstairs in Koukla Cafe.
