“Perfect base for exploring the Brokenback region of the Hunter Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2008

A perfect 2 day stay which included a complimentary bottle of Sweetwater wine, along with a continental breakfast hamper including eggs, bacon, croissants and orange juice. We couldn't ask for more.

The furnishing is comfortable with linen provided, together with television, DVD and CD player and of course the almost obligatory log fire, BBQ and local kangaroos.

In addition, the villas are spaced well apart so there is no feeling of being overlooked. There's also a swimming pool, but it was a bit cool to consider swimming ... and there were all those wineries just waiting to be discovered....

  • Liked — Location ... in a winery and close to lots of other wineries!
  • Disliked — nothing springs to mind...
  • Stayed April 2008, traveled with friends
