“a little piece of paradise”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

never been to the Hunter before and what a pleasant surprise Willow Tree turned out to be.
The hostess was friendly and very helpful and the Estate the perfect place to getaway and unwind. Close to the vineyards but away from main roads - quiet, peaceful and relaxing.
The room was large overlooking the lake, vineyards and mountain range. What more can you ask for? We highly recommend it.
Thank you

“Great times”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I have stayed at Wiilow Tree twice now and would recommend it to anyone. I have been with family and also my better half so it fits for everyone. I would highly recommend the Terrace room with its log fire as that brings great evening entertainment. In addition the Kangaroos just running around the garden are a real authentic look at Australia.
Raylee is the best host ever. My girlfriend forgot her shoes and Raylee kindly lent her a pair for the evening when we went out for dinner. She also has a telepathic understanding of when to be at reception! I cannot recommend Willow Tree enough and will be returning.

“Peacefull accomodation only a few hours away”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in the Summer House, which was is a standalone room about 150 meters from the main building. It was very peaceful with 360degree views, well lit and warm. It also had a lovely area to sit out and soak up the scenery with a glass of wine and cheese. Don't be surprised to see a few kangaroos hop by either.

The estate is very close to all the main Hunter attractions and if you book early you can get an "Around the Vines" taxi and take the worry out of driving when out for the night.

The staff at Willow Tree are extremely friendly and accommodating and have a great knowledge of the area. I would definitely come back here again.

Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I have stayed at willow tree on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. The rooms are of a high standard and are clean and very comfortable. The summerhouse is perfect for a romantic weekend away! I have recommended it to friends and will defiantly be back for yet another stay.

“Friendly, romantic and relaxing!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in the summerhouse spa room and it was superb. It was my wife's birthday and Raylee made us feel very welcome with a complimentary bottle of bubbles.. just overall very friendly and accommodating. The Willow Tree estate is set in beautiful surroundings and the weather was gorgeous so we really couldn't have asked for anything more. Breakfast was great with a wide selection of quality items and the location of the B&B is ideal placed to visit the vineyards and slowly make your way home as the sun sets. Very relaxing and couldn't recommend more.

“Relaxing, friendly and very clean”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My partner and I spent a relaxing couple of days at Willow Tree estate over the bank holiday weekend.
Raylee made us feel most welcome and was helpful in recommending a variety of places to visit. Her pick of restaurants for us was spot on.
The service was warm and welcoming. The breakfast was great. More than adequate.
The summerhouse where we stayed was fantastic. It is extremely spacious and very private. I'd highly recommend staying here if you can arrange it.
Finally i wanted to comment on the cleanliness. The place was spotless.
This is the first time i've written a comment on this website and felt compelled to do so due to our experience over the weekend.
Thanks Raylee. We'll be recommending this place to our friends.

“Bread and Butter Bed and Breakfast”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent a night at the Willow Tree Estate B&B during one of our weekend getaways at the Hunter. We enjoyed out stay here. The property is removed from the main road, which makes it feel very country. The rooms are large and whilst some modernization would do wonders to take this B&B to the next level, the sweeping views over the vineyards (our room had a balcony), the friendly owner and the cozy ambiance are just wonderful. Breakfast is basic but generous and satisfying. A little more local food and wine goodies on arrival would be a nice touch.
