The Tonic Hotel offered my family an exceptional experience this weekend. Each of the apartments were smartly dressed and equipped with quality fixtures. A favourite was the fireplace where some hours were spent sipping a few wines. The views from the balcony included an abundance of wildlife. Black swans landed on the dam very early in the morning. A number... More

We recently stayed at Tonic in the hunter valley for two nights and really loved it. The breakfast provisions were enormous too much for two people. The scenery from the room to the pond was absolutely stunning and the sunset to die for. The bed was so comfortable and the room lovely and warm Just a few points I would... More

We stayed at the Tonic for the weekend of the Roxette concert. We found the accommodation and facilities to be fantastic and more than suited our needs, for our quiet and tranquil stay in the Hunter. The surroundings are beautiful with the room facing the river and a wonderful countryside backdrop. Ian was very welcoming and more than accommodating with... More

The small touches make all the difference. Quality and standards of the interiors along with the small intricacies added to a really enjoyable stay. The setting is a perfect spot to relax and wind down. Excellent standard of breakfast with eveything you could want included. Can't wait to return.

I stayed at Tonic Hotel with my boyfriend last week. The hotel was half-full (judging by the cars parked outside of each room) but it feels so peaceful and quiet as if we have the whole place to ourselves. The view from the room is just stunning. There was thunderstorm one evening and we sat on the balcony enjoy a... More

If you like modern, tasteful, comfortable and private accommodation then these "tin sheds" are for you. Throw in great breakfasts, surprise evening nibbles overlooking dams and countryside and the friendliest of hosts and you have all the ingredients for a really lovely holiday.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Tonic Hotel for two gorgeous, peaceful and fabulous nights. Tonic Hotel had everything we wanted and more. The property was modern, fun, clean, and tucked away on a quiet street in the best part of the Hunter Valley. We loved watching the kangaroos from our balcony hopping around the property - it was almost... More
