Big thanks to Ian for going above and beyond in making my proposal whilst staying at Tonic Hotel something unforgettable. Ian suggested landing a helicopter on the hotel grounds for a scenic tour of the Hunter Valley. What a success!! My partner says it was the best experience of her life when it arrived by surprise for us. The first... More

My partner and I stayed at Tonic two nights over the weekend in July 2014. We were very impressed with a call and text message from Ian the afternoon of our arrival with our door code included. The directions were easy to understand and we simply parked the car ouside the cabin and went straight in. Wow! The aesthetics are... More

The owners of the hotel are lovely and more than willing to assist with all of your needs. My contact with the owners occurred prior to my arrival, where... More

Sometimes a quiet serene retreat is needed from the hustle and bustle of Sydney and Tonic definitely offered it to us during our Valentines Day weekend stay. Was a beautiful get away for the weekend and what a lovely place to stay! It isn't even that far from the main town or the main wine places to visit but it's... More

A simply wonderful weekend at Tonic. The accommodation was divine, the sunsets from the verandah reflecting on the pond were superb, local wineries and restaurants fantastic, get together in the Tonic room sharing our wine purchases in front of the fire and a few stories 'memorable' and this morning opened the blinds at sunrise to watch the hot air balloons...

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

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...
