This place really is idyllic! It was first visit to the Hunter Valley and my partner chose The Carriages to stay.. best decision ever! Lovely warm friendly welcome from Rebecca and her dog Wellington! :) Our room was amazing, clean, tidy, cute farmhouse finishes, perfect for our tastes. Rebecca was very helpful and booked a table at a local restaurant... More

This is a beautiful hotel, with exceptional service, gorgeous surroundings and excellent wine! We had the perfect short escape in The Hunter, all because of Carriages...and Welly, of course - loved that dog! Thank you so much guys! Steph and Miles

We stayed in the Gatehouse (Room 9) for 2 nights on the October long weekend. After only one night, we were so relaxed that it felt like we had been away for a week. We had spent lots of time researching because we didn't want to stay in a large commercialised hotel room - but still wanted to be reasonably... More

I stayed at Carriages for a weekend. I'd been in the Hunter Valley before, however I'd stayed at Tower Lodge which is way over priced. Carriages is beautiful place to stay, and in a great location for wine tasting and visiting the vineyards. It's walkable to get to Pepper Tree and Tower Lodge, and very close to Tempest Two, Hungerford... More

My wife and I stayed over for one night in early August. This was our first visit and were not sure what to expect. It was far better than our expectations and would have loved to extend our stay. We will be back. Peaceful and convenient with country comforts and good finishes. Fireplace was cosy and breakfast basket in the... More

We love this place. My husband and I have stayed here several times and always want to return. It's amazingly cozy in the winter months with the beautiful fireplace in the evenings. I love to wake up with the beautiful breakfast basket and sit on the patio having warm muffins and croissants with our coffees. My only negative would be... More

At last the recurring question of "Where to stay in the Hunter?" has been answered. From the uniqueness of a wood fire in our room to the hand delivered breakfast basket, our stay @ Carriages was exceptional. Staff were friendly and willing to help - from organising our bicycles to cycle around the wineries (recommended) to confirming our dinner reservations... More

We just spent a last minute night away at Carriages and it was everything we'd hoped for. We certainly could have stayed on for a few nights and we felt very well looked after. So many positives, it's very relaxing, an attractive setting, everyone's very friendly and helpful, good wine on their own small vineyard, close to a couple of... More

Perfect location. Easy walk to vineyards for tastings and to Roberts Restaurant which was amazing. Carriages has relaxed atmosphere, lovely rooms and a breakfast basket to die for. Will definitely return!

Thank you for your delightful comments about CARRIAGES. We love to hear that our guests have enjoyed the property and all that it has to offer. We're pleased that a 2-night stay midweek meant you could properly immerse yourself in the vineyard setting & escape the daily grind! Hope to see you again soon. More
