We stayed only one night but would love to go back. Carriages is set in a small vineyard in the countryside, in the heart of the Hunter Valley wine district. We found our room on the first floor of a cottage in the gardens, beautifully restored with a great attention to detail. Nice bathroom, fireplace in the middle of the...

Set down a lovely tree lined road, close to some very good restaurants, and many vineyards for hours of wine tasting. The room was immaculate, big, and very tastefully set out. Bathroom excellent, tons of hot water, and the king bed very comfortable. The breakfast basket was filled with goodies to tempt the most fastidious person. The only thing missing...

We went to Carriages for the weekend of the Rolling Stones concert. It's a family run business with a relaxed, peaceful and relaxing setting. The wine is exceptional, especially the award winning rose. Breakfast is great and Id highly recommend Carriages for a trip to the Hunter valley. It's close to all the main vineyards in Pokoblin -

A gorgeous place to stay, lovely salt water pool and a wide veranda to take breakfast on. Stroll across the vineyard for dinner at Roberts Circa 1876; remember to take a torch for the return journey, it's dark, but the stars are amazing. The staff were very helpful and had our room ready early for us to check in before...

My fiancé and I stayed in Carriages for 2 nights along with another couple. Rooms extremely clean and comfortable, set in an idyllic setting. Reception staff were very approachable and professional. Breakfast hampers were amazing, which were enjoyed in the outdoors. If I had to find one negative aspect, it would be the lack of curtains in the bathroom window...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We think you’re going to love this place. It’s a boutique hotel with 10 rooms, set on an award-winning vineyard. In winter enjoy a roaring log-fire, a squashy sofa, a smooth bottle of wine. On warm days wander through French doors into the garden, dip into the salt-water pool, or play tennis. Sleep in the finest fresh white sheets and wake up to a seasonal breakfast basket at your door. It’s an enchanting retreat at the end of a famous little road. Legendary vineyards, wineries, chef’s hat restaurants, world class golf courses, spectacular Hunter Valley Gardens, chocolate & cheese shops are all close by… plus Carriages Boutique Wines are onsite for your drinking pleasure. COME AND STAY. ... more   less
