Beautifully decorated room with everything you may need. Loved the little surprises and treats. The grounds are beautiful and the location is superb. In the heart of wine country with Hunters best restaurants and wineries very close. I usually opt for guest houses and B&B's when travelling for the personal service, informal and heartfelt if done right, and this place... More

Lovely rooms We stayed in Room No. 1 - loved the fact that we had our own separate entrance. The room was so incredibly tastefully decorated, it was out of a magazine. Lovely little sitting are in front... More

We had a lovely time at Thistlehill, and I would recommend it to anyone who would like a quiet and low-key accommodation. The location is great.The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. The breakfasts were absolutely beauttiful, with fresh baked strudels and fruit, and the second day the best quiche I have ever had. The rooms are very tasteful, and... More

We returned to Thistle Hill for a family stay in the 'Cottage', and loved it (again). The cottage itself is great, but the added extras make the experience 'special'. The fire was much appreciated, the 'supplied' goodies were brilliant: eggs/bacon/tomato/mushrooms for breakfast, with muesli and oats available, assorted chocolates, cheese and bikkies, and very nice bottle of Semillon in the...

Spent the weekend of our daughters wedding here. The cottage was perfect for the bride and girls to stay and get dressed the homestead was perfect for family and the men. We were spoilt by Carol and Jackie. Continental breakfasts were gourmet delight. All homemade. Thanks Carol for the cooking hints. 😃 Will definitely return. Highly recommend for any occasion.
