We stayed two nights. Checkin/Checkout handled efficiently. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean comfy air conditioned room, good amenities - tennis court, swimming pool, bbq area, restaurant, wine cellar/theatre etc though wouldn't call it a "resort". Location was great - close to other restaurants, wineries, Hunter Valley Gardens which currently have a spectacular Christmas light show.

Stayed two nights with Groupon voucher. First time in the Hunter Valley. Stayed in spa cottage. Lovely outlook over country pastures. Pleasant little balcony. We actually liked the unpretentious exterior facilities with modern interior appointments - 'a diamond in the rough'. Bed was very comfortable. Furnishings suited the room, spa worked well. Linen all clean & fresh. Didn't get time... More

My birthday present for my 11 year old... 5 of his mates to the Hunter Valley to do a candy making class... It went for a couple of hours or so, and they made marshmellow from scratch, toffee (the chef did this one - too hot) and then made the chocolate. Put it all together and the result was Rocky...

Unfortunately we agree with utopiablokeQld review. This was a rundown yet expensive place (wouldnt call it a resort). My husband and i are very easygoing, so we stayed the two nights we had booked in a two bedroom cottage, but prob should have moved on to the crown pl aza which was the same price! Things were very dated. Our... More

Stayed for two nights after being given a Groupon voucher as a gift, enjoyed our stay and had no major issues with this resort at all. As a few reviewers have pointed out the site is a little dated, if you are looking for a modern new facility then this is not the place for you, for us the rooms... More

First of all check previous reviews, as you will find they are either group bookings who expect scout camp style cabins and pay accordingly, then check that the reviewer actually has the name correct as I found a few were actually referring to the very swish Mercure Resort down the road! So dont be fooled!. We walked out virtually as... More

We are sorry we did not meet your expectations - however feel your review is a little harsh. 1. We do not post reviews on Tripadvisor - Tripadvisor have very clever metrics in place to ensure all reviews on their site are legitimate. We like constrictive feedback - it is what keeps us improving on how we operate our family... More

We had such good fun while visiting the Hunter Valley Resort - we were a group of friends there for a birthday lunch - we really enjoyed the paddles of beer and ginger beer and the Rose with our lunch on a warm Sydney day was just delightful. Its location is also excellent for visiting other wineries in the area.... More

This resort is a great place to stay with wonderful views over the Hunter Valley. It is wonderful for couples as well as families. You can experience wine and beer tasting as well as special candy making classes at the cooking school. It is a perfect base for other Hunter valley experiences like Cheese and chocolate tasting.
