Stayed here over the October long weekend as a friend's wedding was being held at the resort. We booked a one bedroom villa and got upgraded to a two bedroom villa. Very spacious. Had also two bathrooms and nice balcony area as well. Buffet breakfast is nice and the view over the golf course is beautiful.

We enjoyed our stay here in a spacious 3 bedroom villa. Very comfortable, beautiful views from the balconies. Very convenient to the vineyards and restaurants. Some people may find the stairs daunting both inside and out to the carpark. Enjoyed our cocktails from the bar in reception area. The lagoon pool needs upgrading. Overall we enjoyed our peaceful stay.

I walked in and booked a room. I was given a free upgrade. A large room with spacious bedrooms. The view from the balcony was lovely. Plenty of TV and free Austar. Not far to wineries and village shops. Efficient staff had me organised quickly. Thanks Rachel.

We were very suprised when paying $200 a night for a hotel that we walked into a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa. Very clean room, comfy bed....finally a hotel with good water pressure in the shower. Wish we had booked for more than one night.

The food is in the restaurant is superb and we are having great time. It is really nice and quiet here and the staff are very... More

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
