We found the manager couldn't locate our booking upon arrival , cabins basic, not clean and had to ask to have the bird deposits removed from the seating outside. Must have been great..many years ago. carpets and floors were the worst. I'm sure manager doesn't leave his desk!

keep looking folks.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere.

We stayed for 3 days mid week,$155 pn, late March in a 1 Bedroom "Rose Cottage" set in a quite setting adjacent to the in house vineyard. We felt lost in this magnificient 50 acre setting & found that we returned early each day from out wine escapde, just to sit & relax on the large verandah. The nearest cottage is not even in yelling distance.The breakfast pack, just to get you started is adequate & all facilities are modern.
This place is set at the end of a quiet short no through road, yet only minutes from restaurants, Pokolbin shops & easy access to wineries.
The hosts are friendly & only too pleased to assist.
Definately a posive break from those plastic, same same hotels.

Room Tip: All cottages are located in a rural setting.

We recently stayed in one of the 1 bedroom cottages for $195 per night. For the price (in comparison to higher prices in the vincinty) we beleive it was great value. The cottages are seperate from each other and were clean and well maintained. Our cottage had a full kitchen with all the utensils we needed for daily meals, including use of the BBQ. We were provided with a selection of breakfast foods for the first morning to get us started. No dish and clothes washer in our cottage. The grounds of the estate are very pleasant, including vineyards and the swimming pool was also well maintained. It was great to sit out on the veranda and see the sun set across the vines. The location is very central to many wineries.
All in all great value for money and we will definately be back.

Great place to stay can get up in the morning cook breakfast on the veranda. Spend they day at hope estate which is nice and close, then back to your cottage after big day, throw some snags on the BBQ and enjoy a few cold beers. We love the place, staff always nice and helpful. And is very clean. Will be back there every year for CMC, and we wouldn't stay any where else, but Twin Trees.

We recently stayed at the twin trees country cottages, as accommodation we had booked fell through and it was one of the only places left available- we now see why.

We negotiated a rate of $300p/n but it was certainly not worth that! Although the cottage had all the bare necessities, it was extremely basic. When paying $300 a night you would expect to get breakfast supplied both days- especially when what they were supplying was so basic.

Positives were that it was clean and very central and a lovely location. But overall definitely not worth what they are charging

We recently stayed here for a wedding just around the corner at Roberts/Pepper Tree. It was all within walking distance but if you prefer to drive, there's plenty to do and see not too far away.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom cottage and our fridge was filled with goodies to make ourselves a light breakfast which wasn't originally included in our booking so it was a great surprise! The little cottage had air conditioning and also an electric blanket which was perfect given the weekend we were there, it was very cold in Pokolbin. There is also a fireplace which would be perfect for romantic weekends away in the middle of winter. The kitchen was fully loaded with all that you needed to make yourselves a lovely meal and plenty of wine glasses too!

There's a small dining room set-up that seats four and a couple of couches with a pull-out sofa bed which I think you can pay a little bit extra so someone else can share the cottage with you. Or if you and friends are staying in neighbouring cottages, can get together for dinner! I also spied a bbq outside on the porch which basically circles the entire cottage so you can sip wine by watching the sun set over the vineyard!

After a small mix-up with finalising the payment, it was all sorted very quickly and promptly by Cathy at the front desk.

For prices in Pokolbin, it was pretty great value. The name of the place is called country cottages - so we knew prior to visiting, it would be a little rustic but it certainly exceeded our expectations. It was a charming and gorgeous little area to stay in and we'll definitely be back!

Visiting the area for a wedding. With two young kids. We were forced to stay 2 nights which is fair enough in this area, but were led to believe from all their advertising that - for 770 for two room cottage including 1 days continental breakfast - we would be getting a luxury (it is on the signage at the front gate for example) experience. This is not luxury. Whilst functional it is not luxury and not worth 770 unless you HAVE to pay it - which we did - as there was nothing else in the area close to the wedding. The continental breakfast is a loaf of white bread, pre packaged long life fruit, 4 little cereal boxes. The kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and furnishings are extremely basic, at best 2 star. We hope that this review will help ensure that we (as the paying public) don't reinforce the practice that just because hotels and inns charge a 4/5 star price and say so, that it is luxury - because it is aint - until you deliver it.
