My partner and I stayed here for two nights over the John Farnham/Lionel Richie concert weekend in March 2014. Very quiet grounds with a calming outlook towards the west for great views of the dams and rolling hills, complete with the odd kangaroo. Rooms were spacious and decorated with a contemporary minimalist feel. Room Features included: - King Sized Bed... More

I would like to say what a fabulous stay I had with my daughter and her best friend (bride and MOH) on the 2 days prior to her wedding. I cannot say enough about the owners Ian and Janelle. They really went above and beyond to make my daughters wedding a very happy event. After she had her wedding accommodation... More

Stayed here last week for 3 nights. Originally booked at one of the larger chain hotels in the area but wanted to try something a bit different and boutique so we changed to Tonic. The property grounds and units are well kept and modern. The location is great as you're only 5-10 minutes away from all the great vineyards and... More

The Tonic Hotel provided everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which we found to be modern and comfortable. The first night we relaxed and stayed in for the night. Although we had ample cooking facilities with a large kitchen and veranda with BBQ we chose from the delicious curries and rice available...

Once again, Tonic has provided premium boutique accommodation with top service and ultimate relaxation! My boyfriend and I stayed there over the valentines day weekend and couldn't have had a more relaxing and effortless weekend. We stated in the 2 bedroom room - as we love having a kitchen available and a living area to hang out in. Everything in... More

I stayed recently at the Tonic Hotel and was blown away by the amazing location, service and perfect apartment. It was quiet, with beautiful wild life roaming around and hot air balloons floating on the horizon over the Mountain ranges. The apartment had real wow factor and every part of the stay was perfect. We have a little miniature poodle... More

I have stayed in various different accommodation in the Hunter Valley over the years, but nothing compares to this place! The service is fantastic, the owners Ian and Janelle are so friendly and helpful with everything. The rooms are super chic and very funky, with lots of space and an outdoor veranda where you can spot Kangaroo's hopping close by!.... More

I LOVED staying here! We were met by the lovely Janelle, and then left to enjoy the peace and quiet of this lovely property. The rooms are very nice, boutique style and quirky. Enjoying some local wine and cheese on the balcony whilst the kangaroos grazed a few feet away was just magical! Breakfast was wholesome and healthy. It was... More

This is such a peaceful place. All you can hear are the birds chirping and the ducks swimming in the lagoon. It is a bit of a trek to the main “Hunter Valley” wine area, probably about 15 min drive away but if you have a car you’re fine and it’s so nice to be a little bit out of... More
