Some reports are less than encouraging but we found it a great place to stay. The location is great and central to the various wineries. The room was large with a lounge room, the kitchen was in what I would call the hallway and then a bedroom with a bathroom between the bedroom and the lounge room. There are outdoor... More

Stayed at Villa Provence on a 2 night coupon voucher through Cudo. Had only read the other reviews just before our stay so decided to keep an open mind. Set in a lovely location but unfortunately have to agree with a lot of the issues that the other reviewers have written. The place has so much potential but it is... More

The villa is set down a long driveway way off the street within easy location of Hunter region. There is a beautiful outlook of country and vineyards. It does have a certain charm to it, the grounds are clean and tidy but with a little bit of maintenance it would be grand. The hens came up to say hello each... More

Just stayed 2 nights here. The first was ok.. The second was a shocker! The room next door was occupied by a MASSIVE SNORER. This started around 1am then finally 2 hours later I had to BANG, BANG, BANG on the walls to shut the man up. This lasted for around an hour, then it was on again. Thank GOD... More

(the sheep were gorgeous too) Easy check in and out , we had a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival and... More

We enjoyed our two nights here with a prepurchased voucher. I would agree with previous reviewers that a small table with two chairs inside would be great as well some simple cooking facilities. Not everyone wants to go down to a BBQ and Cook breakfast in the morning in their PJ's. The carpet in our unit was quite stained and... More

I, like the reviewers before me, stayed at Villa Provence on a mid week voucher deal. The property is pleasantly located with lovely views. We were pleasantly greeted on our arrival and the reception desk had our name and unit allocation on it. Keys were on the bed once we went inside our room.You are provided with a toaster and... More

Stayed here for 2 mid-week nights on a coupon deal which made it quite good value for money. The villa is a bit isolated but still only about 5 minutes drive to the reasonably priced eateries nearby. Rooms were clean and comfortable with champagne and chocolates to greet us on arrival. While the main lounge room is quite large it... More

We stayed 2 nights mid week with friends in the next suite. It was a quiet, peaceful location and well situated. Our friends had a very noisy toilet that we think pumped the septic every few minutes. Both suites had a very funny smell to them- not sure septic was working properly or large enough for property? Once all doors... More

If its nature, serenity and peacefulness your after, this is the spot. We really enjoyed our 2 nights at this property except for the bed. Both my husband and I had backache after our 2 nights and even moving in the bed produced unbelievable noises from bed springs!
