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

We stayed here for 2 nights and could easily have stayed for a week. The setting is charming, in lovely grounds, with lots of trees, and rose bushes. Our room was beautiful and clean. Lovely little chairs outside on the verandah to sit and do nothing. A welcome cheese platter and wine awaited us the first day and delicious brownies... More

This is an amazing guesthouse. From the moment you arrive, you are spoilt! Carol is an exceptional host who goes out of her way to make your stay wonderful. We had a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival and when we mentioned how lovely it was, we were given another! There is a cheese board on arrival along with chocolates,... More

We had a great time staying there. Carol made our stay very convenient. She is a perfect host. Breakfast was awesome with fresh fruits, home made muffins and special egg dish. Even when it rained we could sit outside enjoying the garden and the view.
