“Great Hunter Valley Apartments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

Two us stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment at The Vintage. We went to the Hunter Valley for a concert at Hope Estate. The location was fantastic for getting the bus to and from the venue. The apartments are top notch. They are nicely decorated and very comfortable. Each apartment has there own outdoor setting and bbq which we unfortunately didn't get time to use. We loved having our own garage connected to our apartment. The Vintage is a great spot to stay in the Hunter Valley. The golf course and surrounding homes are beautiful. I would definitely stay here again. It would be great if the 1 bedroom apartments also had a sofa bed though.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the entrance

We have been there 3 times and love it. We stay in a one bedroom apartment so can cook our own meals, there is a bbq on the verandah so we can utilise this but its been winter when we go so havent done so yet. We can drive to the various vineyards locally, but use the Cheers bus at least once on our trip each time, Ian is fantastic, reasonably priced and we have a great day out. Next time we go will utilise the Greg Norman golf course.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a verandah facing out

Previous reviewers have said it all. Quality, clean self-contained apartments, well fitted-out and in a great location - on the side of the Vintage golf-course. Only used the Golf Club house for coffee, snacks and found it very welcoming.
Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Upstairs apartments would get more sun

It is hard to find apartments for two couples to share where the choice of bedrooms is easy - It is very easy at The Vintage as the bedrooms in the 2BR apartments are virtually identical each with its own ensuite. Both open to a balcony. The minor difference is that only one has a TV and a chair. The apartments are great for a longer stay as there is a good sized kitchen including dishwasher, comfortable lounge, big dining table and BBQ on the balcony. Apartments are fully airconditioned (ducted and quiet) and there is a gas log fire to add that cosy ambience. The price when shared is very reasonable. As mentioned by other reviewers, the only dining option is at the nearby golf club which extends a 10% discount to Grand Mercure guests. Hotel Manager, Ian Muller was most helpful and full of good advice for local attractions and wineries. A most comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are identical.
