“Perfect getaway!”
Reviewed November 29, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The Annex was the perfect retreat with friends to celebrate a special occasion. Directions provided to the place were easy to follow. Located on the top of a hill with spectacular views we adored the beautiful sunset in the evening and were companied by wallabies. At night we could see the bright stars and could hear the crack of thunder echo through the valley. During the day we utilised the BBQ area for lunch and were lucky to see eagles in the sky. Everything was provided for and more. Susan and Roland have exceeded my expectations to every fine detail to make our stay a memorable one. I would love to come back with my family.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a magnificent place to stay at. The Annex retreat I shall call it as our family of 4 had an absolutely fabulous stay. Roland and Sue are terrific hosts and have thought of every little detail to make you welcome. Better than a hotel stay I say. Everything is provided. Just pack your clothes, follow directions given by Sue and you will be very comfortable when you get there.
We will certainly return.

“Idyllic!!!”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What a fantastic place the annex is, the situation is beautiful with extended views over the valley and everything you can think of has been provided. Roland and Sue are excellent hosts, follow their directions and finding the annex is not difficult. We were very comfortable during our stay and would have loved to stay longer.

“Beautiful and stunning holidays!”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Clean, comfortable, good atmosphere. The only bad thing is weather cloudy and raining whole day during our visit. However the location a bit hard of us as the first travel and we arrived in night time. but we able to stop by and get a very nice neighbors to help us for direction. Kitchen and wash room very clean. Overall, everything was very nice and awesome, we like this guest house. Especially kangaroos surrounding the house. Definitely we will visit again if we back to hunter valley.

Dear Lian, thank you for the review of your stay in The Annex. We are sorry you had difficulty in finding the accommodation; not always easy when you are driving in Australia for the first time, especially at night and in the rain which was unfortunate. We are pleased you enjoyed your visit to the Hunter Valley and your stay in The Annex. With kind regards, Roland & Sue .

“Flawless”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Annex is a gorgeous cottage with beautiful views. It has everything you need, and is new and clean. It is private and peaceful. All members of our family enjoyed our time here and found it very relaxing. Sue and Roland are very friendly and helpful, and they provided a generous breakfast. Don't forget to bring your food for BBQing. It is set away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to enjoy the wineries and other venues of the Hunter Valley. I would gladly come back and spend more time here.
