4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

My partner and I stayed at the Hunter Resort, that he booked as a surprise, for our anniversary. After reading a few mixed reviews, I was a little worrried about what to expect. Apon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised to be staying in a spacious, clean and modern room. The bed was king size and very comfortable, Im guessing it was fairly new. The water was not an issue and you wouldnt know that they do not get town water, if you are worried, then dont drink it and drink the bottled water provided complimentary in the room. We had a wonderful stay, and I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for accommodation in the Hunter.

The crew were so helpful and kind and would always want to help out with where ever we needed to go the same with the Blue Tongue Crew. we had an amazing time and stay there and would always recommend people to stay there for they are close to all the wineries as well. The Hunter people are nothing like Sydney people!

We were very impressed with the service of every staff member we encountered, from checking in, to food service and the winery experience.
The room was comfortable, clean and well equipped.
The location was lovely and peaceful, just far enough away from the main touristy part of the valley but close enough to everything.

Everything to do with our weekend away was so nice. We stayed in the spa cottage and it was so wonderful, we couldn't have asked for a better room. We loved the location as it was quiet and relaxing and the views were great. We loved that we didn't have to leave the resort to have a fantastic dinner and do tours. The best part about our trip would have to be the wonderful massages we got. All the staff were lovely and very easy to get along with.

We got the spa room and thoroughly enjoyed it. Had dinner on the first evening at the restaurant and the service was really good, the food amazing, and coupled with the wine recommendations, it was delightfully decadent! The second day got even better with a great buffet breakfast and the wine appreciation class. We absolutely love the place and can't wait to go back...
Staff: enthusiastic, helpful and cheerful!
Wine appreciation class: enthusiastic, we learned a lot and enjoyed immensely!
Location: Beautiful...we took a walk around and bumped into some kangaroos, amazing.
Value: GREAT VALUE!
Finally, it was fantastic that we could get all those wines under one roof!

Check in was easy, extremely friendly staff. We arrived early and they arranged that the room would be ready early; they gave us the key and told us in 30 minutes we could go to the room. We were a bit early but the cleaner was finished so no problem to enter room. The room and bathroom were both clean, although a bit of a sticky substance on the table in the room. The bed was a double and also available was a trundle bed off to the side. There was a TV with DVD player and DVD's available to rent from reception. Parking was just outside the room. The service from the staff at reception, cleaning, restaurant was all excellent.

Meals: We had both breakfast and dinner. Dinner the first night was excellent-starters, main and desert. Desert was the best-Macadamia tart and Pear Tarte Tartin. Excellent service as well. Breakfast the first day was ok, no low fat cereal, no low fat yogurt and pre-made eggs, bacon etc were quite cold. The fire was lit underneath but still not warm at all or tasty. Dinner the second night was also excellent-fantastic steak and kingfish and again deserts were excellent. Breakfast the second time was perfect-made to order eggs and plenty of fruit salad. Eggs, bacon, sausage, stuffed mushroom and stewed tomato piping hot. We stopped for a beer paddle tasting and the guy at the Blue Tongue was friendly and helpful. The alcoholic ginger beer was best!

The location is just fine nearby to other vineyards. Across the street from a winery and Cheese factory. We saw black swans and kangaroos on Monday evening :-). We arranged a bus/winery tour with reception and Ian drove us around to 5 vineyards. It was a small group of 8 total and perfect trip. Well worth the $50 to have him to the driving and take us to good wineries.
