We really loved our weekend at Thistle. Donna and Stuart are very welcoming and the service was top notch. Beautiful rooms and stylishly landscaped surroundings. It was a blessing to have a pool on a rather hot couple of days which we took full advantage of with a few nibbles and bottle of wine which was complimentary in our room.... More

This is a great B&B and Donna and Stuart are great hosts. Before I arrived I explained I was allergic to polyester in sheets and needed 100% cotton. Donna was pretty sure they were full cotton but just to make sure she went out and bought new sheets which were definitely all cotton. We were really impressed with this gesture... More

The lodge was beautifully presented and very very comfortable. Welcomed with a bottle of their own wine and freshly baked food. The property set in extensive grounds and even to see... More

Comfortable spacious room, immaculate bathroom, delicious freshly prepared breakfast, solicitous host -- what more do you want? Lots of nice touches: umbrellas on hand so you don't get wet if it rains when you're walking to the guest lounge, where the breakfasts are served; cheese plate in the fridge together with a bottle of the local wine; even chocolates in...

Perfect place for a lovely getaway! Donna made us feel really welcome and it felt like a home away from home. She was really accomodating and was able to suggest great places to eat and things to do. The room was beautiful and the breakfasts were delicious. We will definitely be back!

Highly rated TripAdvisor venue in the Hunter Valley NSW – having won many awards with them – hence our booking. A peaceful, secluded Australian Country Homestead greets us as we drive up the winding approach from Hermitage Drive to this tranquil location. Ample parking under the gums, and short walk to the venue. We were greeted by a most enthusiastic... More

We spent two nights here around a balloon trip for our wedding anniversary. The room was lovely, the location quiet and the owners very welcoming. It is well off the road so you feel you are truly in the countryside. The breakfast was excellent. Would be good in either summer (as it has a pool) or winter with airconditioning in... More
