We stayed for two nights at Sovereign Hill Country Lodge Rothbury, located in the Hunter Valley.
The rooms were very well appointed, with air-con, lcd tv, comfy chairs for watching tv, and the best shower one could wish for. Breakfast was included in the rate and makings were provided, and consisted of Eggs, yoghurt, orange juice, bread, butter, jam, cereal milk and of course, tea and coffee making items. There was also a covered patio outside each of the six guest rooms, with a small outdoor table and chairs which overlooked the vineyard on the hillside below. A large covered bbq area with tables and chairs for guests use was at the back of the lodge.
There was a common room, complete with separate kitchen, again, very well appointed with a family size fridge, stove, dishwasher and most kitchen appliances, and plenty of pots, pans etc. It was a real home away from home. So tranquil and away from the hustle and bustle.
Next to the lodge building there was a full size tennis court, with tennis racquets and balls left in the common room for anyone who wished to get a bit of exercise. A swimming pool with cabana was also located in the grounds. The owners were very helpful, providing us with local information and maps.
I would consider this to be the best value stay in the Hunter Valley, and will be very happy to stay there again on any future visits to the Hunter region.
