“Beautiful location, impeccably clean, GREAT service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2009

We stayed at Tidaki Lodge in March when we were up in the Hunter Valley to see Eric Clapton at the Hope Estate. Funny enough, while Eric was great it was actually staying at this B&B which was the highlight of our weekend!

The house is incredible (all glass + polished timber floors) and sits perched on sloping grasslands down a hill - there literally was kangaroos hopping around the grounds! There is a great veranda overlooking the pool where we sat for hours in the shade reading and just generally relaxing. Our bedroom was huge (with own bathroom) and was impeccably clean.

The Lodge is run by a really nice German/Austrian couple who struck just the right balance of being helpful/friendly but also gave us space to ourselves (we have had some bad experiences before in B&Bs with intrusive owners). The breakfast was perfect - great coffee (must be that European influence) and bacon, eggs, roasted tomatoes as well as muesli/fruit-salad/yoghurt.

Manfred (the owner) gave us a lot of good tips for places to eat/drink and good vineyards. Check out 'Amanda's' for dinner as that was another highlight...

Would recommend this to anyone, we will certainly be back for our next trip tp Hunter Valley.
