“All round fantastic experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

We stayed at Capers guest house for a concert weekend in December 2011. There were 2 couples in the party so we were lucky enough to get the cottage, which is a 3 bedroom lovely little cottage. It was tastefully furnished with lots of home style comfort. The huge breakfast was provided in the fridge. We just had to cook it ourselves, which was no trouble on the great BBQ provided.We just loved the stay because we loved the cottage and everything was so nicely done. Wollombi is a good 20min drive from the heart of the wineries, but you don't notice it because the coutryside is so beautiful. Looking for a weekend winery tour ? I strongly recommend you consider Capers at Wollombi.

We stayed in the cottage by the road having drowned our car on a river crossing just north of town. The owners accomidated our family at very short notice. In a short time our children were in front of a warm fire in a beautiful cottage. It is a fantastic place to stay in a great village. Thanks again.

We stumbled upon Capers by chance when we got to Wollombi a little too late in the day to continue on to our intended destination. The owners were so polite and helpful. The room we were given was decorated in the style of the guesthouse and just lovely. Wollombi is such a lovely little town with great places to eat, and the tavern is a bit of fun too. Wouldn't stay anywhere else is we came back through this neck of the woods.

On the recommendation of a friend, we planned to stay at Capers for one night whilst travelling. No persuasion was needed to prolong our stay to two nights.

The house, approached by a steep drive sits amongst trees, but with a commanding view of the valley, best viewed from the veranda on which breakfast and other meals are served in good weather. Jane and Michael Young run Capers beautifully. Much of the breakfast produce , including the muesli, is home made, served in true colonial style - pretty crockery, butter in dishes and hot toast when required. A full breakfast is also available. We also sampled Jane's excellent dinner in the lovely dining-room, served (although the house was officially closed) to four of us at very short notice.

The guest rooms and en-suites were extremely well furnished, large and immaculate - ours opening onto the veranda and therefore the view. Dressing-gowns are provided.

There is a pool below the house with loungers and a covered area. Quite a steep approach, so not too good for those with walking difficulties.

The bird life is extraordinary and very tame, due to Jane's prolific food supply.

In all, a 5* guesthouse in a delightful village situation with charming and hugely efficient hosts.

Quiet, scenic, rural, sophisticated, relaxing.

Capers is a beautiful building with large, clean comfortable rooms with very pretty views, lots of attention to detail throughout the guesthouse, beautiful setting and excellent and friendly service.

Will stay again.
