“Rip off”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

Good service, location and attention to detail but the cottages are pokey with tiny kitchens. Not unlike something you could get on a campsite but at a high price. Will not be returning.

Reviewed August 3, 2009

I have just returned from Sydney but took a trip to the Hunter Valley with my two daughters. We stayed at Olive Grove Cottages and it was just lovely. The cottages are immaculate with everything you could possibly need. We went for the Breakfast and Wine tour option. There was more than enough for all of us and the food was of very high quality, Port and Chocolates, small btle red and two small btls of white. lovely local cheeses, crackers. Custy bread cerials bacon eggs tomatoes and the list just goes on.

The two bedroom cottage is quite roomy with a fully equiped kitchen and a lovely balcony with a dining area and BBQ. At this time of year it can get quite chilly but the cottages are lovely and warm thanks to the air con/heaters in every room. Cant recommend it enough.

Wine tour was great fun. Gave us a chance to meet others on the tour and taste the great wines of that area.

I booked here for a birthday weekend for my wife and I. We went for the top package, which included a Winery Tour, BBQ Hamper, & A Two-
Course Dinner.

We found the whole experience just great. The attention to detail was exceptional. Nothing seemed to have been overlooked.

The surroundings where very peaceful. The accommodation is set back off the road enough for sound not to carry.

The food and wine provided was great quality, and more than enough. We had to take some home with us.

The Mill restaurant is really first class. Sometime when you take this type of package, some cost cutting occurs. Not here.

Seemed to use a great Wine Tour company too. We went to some less well known Wineries that produced great wines. A fun day.

I can't recommend this package enough! Great value.
