Following a read of a number of reviews I was not quite sure what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised overall with my one night stay at Cypress Lakes. It seems to me that given the Resort is mixed with private owners who own villas [some units clearly rented out to non resort guests] that some reviews that appear... More

I absolutely love this place. It feels secluded from the rest of the world but you are just minutes away from everything. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. This place is well worth the money. It's very easy to get lost and there is plenty of local wildlife to remind you that you are no longer in the city

Absolutely loved our time at Cyprus Lakes - but the photos of all the celebrities who have stayed here say it all. They were all in their prime in the 80s - and so, we suspect, was the resort itself. The villa we stayed in was in desperate need of a makeover. The lounge chairs were sticky with revolting arms,... More

Stayed for 3 nights midweek - bad aspects: There was no washing machine, only a tub and dryer. When I asked about this I was told that there is a Laundromat in Cessnock and that "washing machine" has been removed from the website. ( and the villas too! ) Fridge defrosted all over our food overnight then it froze everything... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom self contained villa & it was a totally comfortable & pleasant experience. The rooms were well appointed & the bathrooms spacious enough for 4 women! The only hassle was that the lock on the sliding door was broken & even though we rang multiple times for someone to come & fix it, no one eventuated.... More

The whole family were well looked after by all of the staff. Different levels of accommodation to suit everyone. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent including the extensive buffet breakfast. Lots of lovely nature walks for a peaceful time.

The restaurant served great food, and the buffet breakfast was so good, what a great way to start the day. We had a villa a distance from reception which... More

Got upgraded from a 1 bedroom to a 2 bedroom even though we didn't require it. Excellent facilities and cleanliness and highly recommended for a stay in the Hunter Valley! Roads are a little dark at night but it beats just being in a room as you have a whole house essentially
