My husband and I were shouted a two day escape by our daughter to Thistle Hill and we really don't see what everyone is raving about. The room was nice, a bit small but nicely decorated and the complimentary bottle of wine was very nice. Our issue was at breakfast. my husband had notified them of my Coeliac disease at... More

Words can't really describe how amazing this place is. Tranquil, peaceful retreat full of lots of extras. Beautifully appointed rooms, breakfasts to die for - you won't want to leave! The grounds are immaculate and provide opportunities for walking and the welcoming cheese platter and bottle of wine was a special touch.

There's nothing here to disappoint. The setting is absolutely beautiful - peaceful, calm and impeccably maintained. The rooms are lovely, with plenty of space and everything you could want, and more. Breakfast is included in the tariff and and it is just as impressive as everything else. Jacquie and Carol made us feel both welcome and at home and seem... More

What a fabulous place!! Stayed 2 nights attending Eagles concert. Beautiful surrounds. The friendliest hosts!! A homely breakfast that's fresh, tasty and plentiful. Rooms were clean, comfortable and full of character. Little treats ( cheese and fruits, chocolate brownies) in your room each day. Carol, the owner, gave us great tips on local restaurants (Muse, Botanica, Bistro Molines). The grounds,... More

Hospitality was outstanding at Thistle Hill Guest House. The ambience of the rooms and gardens was well above our expectations and we are so disappointed that we didn't stay longer. It's not often that you go to breakfast and feel like you are a special guest. Every wish was catered to and breakfast was delicious. I could spend hours relaxing... More

Had a lovely mid-week stay at Thistle Hill. The cottage is very nicely done and is in a lovely relaxed setting. Location is also very good and would definitely recommend for a quiet retreat. The pool was not in use but Carol was full of apologies and also gave us a bottle of wine by way of apology. Wine tour... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night only as part of a wider road trip around NSW. Visiting from the UK, we knew we wanted to spend a night in Hunter Valley and I'm having to give myself a massive pat on the back for choosing such a wonderful place to stay in! We were greeted warmly by Jacky... More

The weekend was looming so we headed up the highway to the only place to stay whilst in the Hunter Valley - Thistle Hill Guest House. The peace and serenity of this beautiful property and Carol and Peters warm hospitality makes this establishment an absolute 'winner'. We have visited many times, and enjoyed the home baked delicious food, not withstanding... More
