“Great value and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 14, 2009

Emmas Cottage Vineyard formed the backbone for a fantastic weekend in the Hunter Valley. I was the organiser for a group of 3 couples, so I was under pressure to perform. The accommodation was better than we had hoped for and the location was perfect, peace and quiet yet right in the heart of all the Hunter has to offer. The 3 bedroom cottage was better than portrayed on the website and was spotlessly clean and tidy. The furniture and fittings were moden and functional and not overpowering. The last thing we want is clutter. The cottage had exactly what we needed and was basic and functional. It was the real Hunter Valley as you stay right in a working family vineyard with plenty of opportunity to chat with the owners as they are available in the cellar door from 10 till 5. They were friendly and direct and really added to the weekend. We found Emmas cottage to be great value for money and enhanced a great weekend with friends. We will be back.

We booked the 3 bedroomed self contained cottage off this website which is also a winery. From the pictures it looks lovely (although no internal images on this cottage which is 1 of 3 available). When we arrived it looked quite different to how we imagined it to be. It seemed very bare and basic although very clean. It did have a good kitchen but basic and the rooms were clean but again basic. The living area had an awful leather couch that should have been thrown out years ago but a lovely log fire which we used. The owners were very friendly and willing to help with any queries and had wine tasting at the cellar door. They had bought the place about 3 years ago and we felt that the accommodation side of the business was relatively new and therefore accounted for the lack of cosiness that you often get in holiday homes.

Its good for groups wanting to visit the Hunter Valley region for wine tasting as it is fairly central but you do need a car to get anywhere although you can hire taxi easily.

We just felt we had been mislead by the website as it showed the cellar door house rather than the house we actually stayed in.
