My stay here was part of an anniversary celebration and we had the most fantastic mini getaway. Everything was beautifully luxurious, definitely worth every penny. I couldn't pick a favourite part of the stay, but if I had to, it would be waking up in the most deliciously comfortable bed looking out upon the spectacular Hunter Valley. I would definitely...

The room was stylishly appointed and the bed was absolutely divine; my wife slept like a log, thank god. Seriously, we were visiting from Adelaide, a bastion of noise and chaos I assure you, and the tranquility inherent upon entering those hallowed halls of Tonic was truly transcendental. Breakfast was delightful and the countryside the very picture of serenity. The... More

Pulling into a gravel drive that's far away enough from the accomodation to not impact on the tranquility, you pass a large pond full and arrive at your front door. There is space... More

This place is so relaxed and easy to settle into. We wished we didn't have to come back home to reality. If feels like you are miles away from everything. Such an awesome place to stay and the breakfast was a hit too. Very happy with everything.

The view out to the mountians was spectacular with a wonderful sunset which we shared with the kangaroos. The owners were on hand with useful tips for wineries and and dining... More
