Ben was most welcoming and our stay at the Carriages, although short, (just one night,) was superb! The Carriages lie right in the heart of the Hunter Valley and they nestle in the same compound as the superb Roberts Restaurant, which is also magnificent! We had a corner verandah room, which was simply brilliant. We were impressed to find facilities... More

The Carriages Country House is one of the most endearing places we've stayed in a while - and their wine's a treat too! It's incredibly peaceful and very clean. I LOVE the breakfast basket. We stayed in a corner verandah suite, which was perfectly sized for a romantic couple of days. The Carriages is in a great location - we... More

We stayed in a Verandah Suite for a couple of nights and had a fantastic experience. The room was clean, spacious, and quaintly decorated. The room also opened out onto a very large communal verandah with plenty of funiture to choose from to eat breakfast or kick back with a nice bottle of the local product. We will be back!

I stayed at The Carriages when i visited the Hunter Valley with my parents who were on holiday from England and we had a fantastic time. The property and guesthouse is beautiful and in a perfect location for visiting wineries. The service was great, we felt at home right away and decided to stay an extra night. We were also... More

My husband and I stayed at The Carriages for the last two nights of a honeymoon that took us around both the west and east coasts of Australia. We stayed in a variety of hotels, some hits and some misses. The Carriages was our *absolute favorite* of them all. The Dawsons are warm, friendly, and welcoming. The property is gorgeous... More

We loved this place. BJ made us feel welcome, suggesting somewhere great for dinner, offering us a taste of the wine from his vineyard, and suggesting we have a stroll across the nearby field to see kangeroos which we had yet to see on our holiday. The rooms are lovely and full of character, we loved sitting out on the... More

We booked the Carriages for a quiet, relaxing retreat over the New Year. We booked into our room which was quite expensive at $295 per night we thought as the room was quite basic perhaps 2/3 star. We were told by the lady who booked us in that a large group would be holding a party/ BBQ and she hoped... More

Recently enjoyed staying at this relaxing country guesthouse that is centrally located but tucked away from the main road with only the sounds of birds as you wake in the morning. Room was spacious, private, very comfortable and spotlessly clean but best of all was the breakfast delivered to your door each morning - freshly baked muffins, beautiful seasonal fruits... More

This was a return visit to the Carriages Country House after living overseas for the past four years and I was not disappointed. I had wonderful memories of drinking a glass of red by the fire in our room and relaxing over breakfast the next morning on the verandah, but this 2 day stay was in the heat of summer,... More

Had a fabulous stay here on the weekend. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect - extremely welcoming owners, quaint and private setting, very comfortable room, all the facilities we needed, we loved the breakfast basket that was delivered to our door each morning!! And the location was ideal - right in the heart of Pokolbin!! Would definitely recommend... More
