My partner and I had a wonderful two nights at Thistle Hill for our first trip to the Hunter. From the moment we arrived everything was superb. The room was like stepping into a French guest house, the grounds were so tranquil and the breakfast was of restaurant quality and complimented everything that is the Hunter and Thistle Hill. Our...

Thistle Hill is the loveliest B&B in the Hunter. Its such a beautiful community and wherever we went, when we told people we were staying at Thistle Hill, there were smiles and nods. Comments of how lucky we were to be under Carol's care with her scrumptious breakfasts and old fashioned hospitality. The room was genteel and comfy. We stayed... More

Spent a night's stay at Hunter Valley as a nice breakaway from our Sydney holiday at Thistle Hill Guesthouse recently with my husband and left with absolutely gorgeous memories of our time there! The tranquillity and privacy of the property made it a perfect couples' retreat in an idyllic setting - and Carol was the consummate hostess (who just so... More

We stayed here to celebrate an occasion and were more than happy. Our host Carol was fantastic. Nothing was a problem and she supplied a wonderful breakfast. Will be staying there when we next visit Hunter.

We stayed in the cottage for a girls weekend. I was really impressed. The cottage is cosy, great fire, great deck for enjoying the morning sun. Each bedroom had its own ensuite. I would totally recommend the cottage for two couples or family looking for a getaway. Fantastic, will be back!

We recently celebrated our daughter's wedding at Thistle Hill Guest House. The venue and grounds were perfect. As was the décor and all other details. The continental breakfast was amazing. And I have to say that Carol went above and beyond to make the celebration and our stay a memorable one. I can highly recommend Thistle Hill and we will... More

Thistle Hill Guest House is a wonderful place to stay. Set on spacious grounds, the six guest rooms are beautifully appointed. The hosts Carol & Peter provide amazing service and the little extras they provide eg a bottle of wine and cheese plate in your room on arrival make you feel very welcome. The continental breakfast prepared by Carol is... More

Hard to pick a fault, Carol you are amazing, so thank you, you deserve 10 out of 10 every time! A warm and sincere welcome, we didn't even need to tell you who... More

We spent two nights at Thistle Hill and would highly recommend the stay there! Carol is a perfect host and the breakfast - speachless! She also had great hints for the dinner and we enjoyed our time very much.
