We stated here for a weekend away in April with some friends. After receiving some good feedback on this place from other friends about the room sizes being big we decided to stay here. I was really disapointed with this place. We had a villa and it was big & spacious & perfect for a family or two couples but... More

stayed in the 3 bed villa which I agree with previous posts is tired, stained and in need of a revamp. The staff were the standout here though. Walking past the room cleaners and hearing them drop the F bomb loudly when she dropped a bag, then having them arrive around 2pm laughing and mid conversation asking to clean the... More

Stayed there for one night. Nice area and surroundings. The room was decent but nothing special. The breakfast area was crowded and noisy - we even had to wait for 10 minutes to be seated. Generally it was bad value for money. We would have been better of to stay at a guest house at one of the wineries.

No denying this is a lovely hotel but with each room starting at $400 it's a bit pricey even for a luxury hotel. We did enjoy our night here and found it to be very quiet in the rooms, lovely comfy bed and good heating on a cold night. We ate in the love dale pub downstairs and enjoyed good... More

Spent 2 Nights, family of 5. Very clean and tide The 2 bedroom villas are a long way from the main building, with no views.. Nice and close to many wineries and although we didn't use any of the facilities they looked ok.

Our stay was hampered by the heavy duty construction going on in the wing we were staying in. Water pressure in shower was not good and water was only luke warm. If your not with Telstra you will get no Wifi service at all, I'm not sure why all Aussie hotels don't give free wifi like most of the hotels... More

Thank you wallaby for your recent review of our resort. I firstly must apologise for the noise that you experienced whilst you were staying with us. We are currently undergoing construction of a conference centre and to have our valued guest disturbed by noise isn't what we want. Please accept my sincere apologies for this.

I stayed here in order to get prompt morning access to Cessnock aerodrome for a jet flight. Certainly this was the best placed hotel for that - right across the road but not close enough to experience any noise. The property is huge, like a small neighbourhood, and certainly if you're into golf it would be even better due to... More

We did not plan to stay overnight but it got late and the kids were tired. We stopped at the Crown Plaza and thank god we did. The staff were extremely nice and the room was fine as well. We dined at the bar which was great - the pizza is awesome. Breakfast is a bit expensive but worth it.... More

Stayed in one of the rooms in the main hotel building with my family. The hotel is located in a convenient spot, close to many vineyards and attractions. The rooms were clean and contemporary with adequate facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful and house-keeping was regularly completed. We especially loved the recreational facilities such as the outdoor swimming pool... More
