“Exactly what we wanted!!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We stayed at Emma's just before Christmas to stock up on wine from Hunter for the holiday season. We had a 2 bed cottage and it was perfect for our needs. It was nice to have a communal living area rather than staying in a hotel, everything was clean and the owner was very nice and helpful. The only negative thing I do have to say is about the restaurant. We had to wait about 45 minutes just for our starters and there were not many other customers in there. However, I do want to point out that the restaurant is not owned by Emma's and leased to a seperate person. The food was good but it was just a shame we had to wait so long.

The cottages are easy to find, a reasonable price and in the heart of the Hunter Valley. I would definitely stay there again, plus you have the added bonus of cooling off in the pool after a hard day of wine tasting :-) Happy times.

Me and my sister took my dad away here for the weekend for his 60th Bday last weekend and we absolutely loved this place! The vineyard and cottages were picturesque... sitting on the veranda overlooking the vineyards was just amazing. The cottage itself was clean, cosy and equipped with everything you need on a weekend away. The hosts were all very lovely and helpful and the resident dog Dynamite won us over too! The cellar door was great with a lovely range of wines to try and buy at a great price. Overall this place gets a 10/10 from us, couldn't think of anything to fault it.

The restaurant on the premises was also spectacular.. the host was so charming and helpful. Being vegetarian I struggled to find a meal so I asked him to make me a big breakfast without the meat and it came out looking more delicious then the other meals we ordered! So much thought put into everything and the service was fantastic!

We just came back from a weekend with friends. We are lucky enough to find Emma's Cottage and booked the 4 bedroom house. The house was fantastic - had absolutely everything we could need: all queen beds, two bathrooms, great lounge set-up, fire, BBQ and huge kitchen (with a dishwasher).

We loved the set-up and would definitely recommend this house to those travelling in a group. The location was perfect - right in the Hunter on a vineyard and close to those bigger/popular cellar doors.

Hopefully we'll be back! We all loved the weekend away!

My daughters and I just enjoyed our third stay at Emma's Cottage. The atmosphere is very calm and peaceful, and the accommodation is excellent. The cottage is warm in the winter, and the beds are extremely comfortable so that we all slept very well. We love being so close to the other wineries and eating places while still feeling a sense of quiet and relaxation. The artwork is bold and vibrant, and the wines are clean and fresh. The owners are welcoming and eager to ensure that the standards are kept very high.

Wow.

I have always loved Emmas Vineyard but the changes in recent years have been amazing.

Lovely wine across the range.

There was an absolutely fantastic women working at the cellar door at the time of our visit. I don’t know her name but she was genuinely friendly, passionate, knowledgeable, bright, bubbly and pregnant, so maybe she won’t be there much longer?

Nice pizzas

Great artwork

Reasonably priced and attractive accommodation.

Best of all it is in Lovedale which is away from the hustle and bustle of the main HV drag

My husband and I stayed with another couple at Emma's Cottage in March when we attended the CMC Rocks the Hunter. Relative to other accommodation in the area for an event weekend, Emma's Cottage was very well priced. The cottage we clean and modern with a good size bathroom. The kitchen had proper fridge and stovetop as well as a dishwasher which is always a plus!

The covered verandah was a lovely spot to sit with a view over the vineyards. There was also a BBQ. Even though the accommodation was booked out it was still peaceful and private. We didn't eat at the restaurant on site but did buy take away coffee there each morning which was nice.

The event we attended was at Hope Estate which was only a 10min drive away. There was plenty of parking at the accommodation and it was easy to find following the directions on the website.

My only gripe is that the bed was quite uncomfortable. It felt like the mattress needed replacing. But otherwise it was a great stay!

What a great way to stay in the Hunter and such a beautiful setting. We booked the large cottage as we had friends staying and it was a perfect setup and felt really quite homely. To top it off there is the winery to do wine tastings and also Tilly's (family run) for pizza on site - and the pizzas are pretty good! Oh and don't forget to try the brownies, they are fantastic!
