“An excellent accommodation option”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

After trawling various websites trying to choose from the vast array of accommodation in the Hunter Valley, the trip advisor reviews and a Living Social voucher made this my first choice and it didn't disappoint. Well located near some great restaurants and plenty of vineyards, the villa was modern, comfortable and well equipped. Specifically as we had a young child, and my dad with us, having two well proportioned rooms and amazing bathrooms each, there was enough space for everyone. Loved the spa bath, generous breakfast selection and complimentary wine, we really enjoyed our stay, all complimented by Dennis and Marie's hospitality. Finally do take advantage of of the cellar door on your doorstep, they have some great wines to taste.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

We recently stayed in one of the two beautiful villas on DenMar Estate and couldn't be happier with the service, the surrounds, the food and the warmth and friendliness of our hosts.
The view is really divine and serene, looking over vineyards and with lots of plants and trees you really experience the beauty and peace of the Hunter.
The food and wine were just superb, and the knowledge of the cellar master was excellent. You can have meals onsite, which were just beautiful.The fittings and furniture in the villas are all first class, stylish design yet warm and comfortable. The breakfast provisions were generous and sourced locally, which we enjoyed tremendously. We highly recommend it for couples, or friends wanting a lovely getaway where you are spoiled and pampered just the right amount. Definitely try all the wines, you will want to take some home!

Spent two fabulous nights at this boutique winery (5/6/12 to 7/12/12) and stayed in Villa Semillon. The accommodation was very spacious, modern and well maintained. Our breakfast hamper was a generous selection of eggs,bacon mushrooms,tomatoes,cereals etc. Plus we received a complimentary bottle of wine, cheese platter and chocolates. Our genial hosts Marie and Dennis were very welcoming and we really enjoyed the canapes and wine tasting followed by a three course tasty meal which was included in our deal. This indeed was a fantastic getaway, and we will certainly return. This idyllic wine estate is ideal for couples looking for a romantic escape.

Denmar Estate was just what we were looking for. A total laid back and relaxing time.
Our host Dennis and Marie were just wonderful a more friendly couple you could not wish to meet. On arrival they were very helpful and made us feel very welcome as we received our platter and a bottle of wine to make us feel at home. We had an agenda whilst we were there and Dennis and Marie kindly worked around us. Our wine tasting and meals were 1st class and for a first time wine taster like myself Dennis and Marie made the experience very comfortable for me.
If you looking for a place with perfect accomodation, great wine and fantastic food then you have found the right place in Denmar Estate.

Denmar Estate was a relaxing getaway for my girlfriend and myself. We stayed in one of the villa's which inside was very nice. The bed, couch, bathroom all felt like a 5-star hotel feeling.

When we arrived the hosts were very nice to greet us and gave us a bottle of wine to take to our villa, there was also a cheese platter waiting for us in the fridge of our villa. When we arrived the view of the grape vines was amazing. My girlfriend and I sat out in the patio drinking the delicious wine while eating cheese. Denmar Estate was amazing. I would recommend for a couple looking for a romantic getaway.

Recently we spent two nights midweek at Delmar. We didn't know what to expect but overwhelmed by the generosity of our hosts Marie and Dennis. Had a comprehensive wine and food matching, and a wonderful three course dinner onsite.
Included in the deal our hosts drove us and picked us up from a local restaurant. The breakfast supplies were ample and the accommodation was very very nice, with clean lines and modern feel. It was very hot when we were there but has a nice breeze and well-designed and well insulated. There are two chalets onsite, but plenty of privacy from each other. Highly recommend.

DenMar Estate was more than we'd hoped for: the accommodation was perfect (spacious, new, spotlessly clean, private, with great views) but what really made us feel like royals was the great hospitality shown by Dennis and Marie. Their passion to share their love for great wines and food was a treat in itself. We especially enjoyed the wine tasting session where Dennis learned us a thing or two about wine making (and drinking) and Marie kept bringing in delicious canapes to match each of the whites and reds. We hope to be back someday, and in the meantime... let's hope the box we brought back to Sydney will last a while! (only one bottle down so far - such restraint)

Room Tip: We were in Villa Semillon which is lovely
