A positive experience. Very cosy, clean and welcoming. We went horse riding and did the tractor ride which, was very scenic. Cameron took us to feed all the animals and the children had a fun time. The horse riding was professional with great views along the way. The leaders were looking out for all the riders continuously and as I... More

Please check that this place has the facilities you need before you book. The Owner means well but this place is dated and no cooking facilities in our room. When questioned about this we were offered a BBQ across the road and even then the bottle was almost empty, no utensils to cook with and the wind blew us away... More

We stayed in a self-contained apartment with a double bed, bunks and single bed. All very clean. The owner was kind to allow us a last-minute change of dates due to an unforeseen issue on our side, and arranged a driver for a vineyard tour and a sunset horseback ride. Beautiful scenery and plenty of paddocks with cattle, kangaroos and... More

I have been horse riding at many places and this place is by far the best !!! the property you ride on is so beautiful and the horses are amazing and very well trained. We had plenty of opportunity to canter which is a must for me. The staff were so lovely. I highly recommend this place and will be... More

We'd been up in the mountains above Brisbane in the rainforest so this was a real change to this beautiful house in the middle of trees - 400 acres in all. Margaret made us feel very at home & we loved the rooms and great views. We only stayed one night but would love to go back one day. Lee... More

My partner and I stayed three nights at the Hilltop Country guesthouse. We had a wonderful time. The accomodation was very clean, cosy and quiet. We loved the fire place and cosy living room. We really enjoyed walking in the country side. The views were spectacular. Margaret was very friendly and hospitable. We liked hearing her stories of growing up... More

Having read the reviews it was with some trepidation that we headed off to Hill Top Country Guest House but when we got there any apprehension just melted away. The guest house and villa were comfortable, clean and welcoming. We had a wonderful afternoon relaxing on the terrace, playing coits, billiards and having a wonder around the property. Ages ranged...

My sister and I had one of the best trail rides we've ever been on at the Hunter Valley Riding School. Lee was very attentive in making sure the beginners and the experienced riders enjoyed the ride and were given horses / ponies that were suitable. I rode Luke and was blown away by the beautiful scenery and the quality... More

We booked horse riding and the group was delayed by over an hour. We had plans later in the day so we could not wait over an hour to start. We had secured the booking with a credit card and they would not allow us to cancel or provide a refund. We left out of pocket and not having gone... More

We booked for a group of 9 friends to do a trail ride this long weekend for $75 each. We turned up and were tersely informed by the obnoxious owner that they were running an hour behind and so we wouldn't be able to ride until the previous group returned. We had specifically booked an early afternoon ride so that... More
