“5 days in Hunter Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Raylee and her Mother were excellent hosts. Raylee even made us lovely scones accompanied by jam and cream, which we much appreciated as we come from England. We would certainly stay here again if we come back to the Hunter Valley sometime in the future. Roger and Pauline.

Room Tip: we were in French room which had a lovely view

Willow tree estate and its host Raylee Keleher were fantastic!

The room, its ambiance, the washroom with its large spa like bath-tub, all were worth every dollar we spent! My husband went running in the morning and a few kangaroos decided to join him for a few minutes before running into the vineyard adjacent to the property!

I recommend this place to all and look forward to visiting soon!

you will need a car to drive around hunter valley and enjoy most vineyards and restaurants.

Room Tip: Der Rosenkavalier Spa Room has an awesome view of the landscape and you can see kangaroos running...

Raylee had been so accommodating and it felt so personal to us.
We stayed in Summerhouse and we get to see kangaroos and bunnies all the time!
Room was very clean and spacious. Away from the main house gave very good privacy for couples.

We had the French Room & it was an enjoyable stay at Willow Tree Estate. It had a great view of the mountains & vineyards & the kids Sam & Josh enjoyed the pool & the company of JJ & Fin. Coming back hopefully not too long in the future. Thanks Willow, Gab & Karen

Stayed here for a few days for a family wedding, the estate and the surroundings were astoundingly beautiful.

The service and personal Touches were as equally impressive, very clean well appointed rooms kitted out with everything you could need.

I couldn't recommend this place enough... Book it you won't be disappointed! I'll be back!

This is a beautiful place to stay in the Hunter Valley. We had the Terrace room which consisted of a sitting room and on-suite double bedroom with a second bedroom off the sitting room with 2 single beds and access to a second bathroom. The views from the room were amazing right across the valley. Accommodation was very comfortable with all toiletries, hair dryer, iron and board, tea, coffee, milk and a complementary bottle of wine provided. The beds were very comfortable and the room was quiet even though access to the main part of the house was past our door.
Breakfast was continental and very plentiful. There was a selection of cereals, fresh and dried fruit, breads, rolls and croissants, cheese, fruit juices tea and coffee etc!
We were even entertained by a family of kangaroos which came down to the lake very close to the house.
I really cannot fault our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Hunter Valley.
