Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort

The villa we had was very nice although it was probably 300-400 metres from the restaurant and pools (not that we wanted to use the pool in winter) so you either ring reception to get transport down and back for dinner or use your own car. As another reviewer has said, you also have to walk from the car park to your villa but we didn't find it a problem.
The villa had everything you could wish for except a washing machine (although it did have a drier) and there were no laundry facilities available in the complex which would be a nuisance if you stayed a week or more.
The golf course looks good and the famed Hunter Valley Gardens are nearby as are many wineries, so it is well located in the heart fo the Hunter.

Quality of breakfast was poor yet range was good (maybe try less options and better quality?). Women doing the pancakes kept us amused with her scowling at customers and correct placement of tongs. Coffee from machines was deadly, much better when ordered from bar (albeit $5 per coffee...). Accommodation was good sized although could do with an update, but clean and worked well.

Rooms are great and spacious. However, no hot water or water at all in the morning! Breakfast is great. Need to take walking/ hiking shoes as your room can be a long way from anywhere.

Fantastic value-villa was perfect and food at restaurant good too. Have told others what a great deal it was and will come back. Open fireplace in lounge was a nice touch for the July weather. We stayed 2 nights and the only thing lacking was we needed more of the complimentary shampoos/conditioner as not enough for 4 people for 2 nights.

A few of my friends had a tour of the vineyards for a hens during the day and we stayed at Cypress Lakes Resort for the evening. The villa we stayed in was very clean and tidy and had lovely views. The resort staff were friendly and helpful. They have a courtesy bus/car to get you to your accommodation. The amenities looked great around the resort, unfortunately was too cold for a swim. Great location, close to everything. Breakfast was busy but delicious. Only down side was we didn't have enough bedding even though we booked for the 5 and didn't realise this until ready for bed.
Would recommend and we will probably be back for 2 nights next time. Thanks for a great stay and great price too :)

It is no wonder this property "self rates" itself as it wouldnt make the official 5 star rating. I am a mature person and you cant access the units and all your luggage easily as you have to park your car quite a way from the unit. It is not well lit at night and you are a distance from the facilities and restaurant. Upon check in, I was not given any information about facilities, where breakfast was served and had no idea about a shuttle bus until the day I left. The unit was clean with the exception of all the bugs in the light fitting over the dining table & the stains on the loungeroom floor rug & the bedroom window which you couldnt see out of for dirt. There was no coffee table or side tables to sit a drink. The tiny shower cubicles would be most inconvenient for a lot of people. The fridge & freezer had had their shelves removed which made it difficult to put much in it. But the absolute WORST aspect of this unit was it had little soundproofing and timber floors. My unit was on the ground/1st level with one above and the noise from the people upstairs was unbearable. The guests were not to blame but the timber floors, closing of doors and walking up the stairs plus all the bathroom noises kept me awake until 2am. This accommodation is probably good for families with children but definitely not for singles or couples wanting peace and quiet and convenience. I also noted (as did another reviewer) the strange laundry set up with a dryer on the wall, a laundry tub but no washing machine?? Such a shame as the setting is very nice but there are too many negatives and far better places to stay in the Pokolbin area.

My wife and I stayed in this wonderful terrace over looking the golf course at Cypress Lakes. The unit was spotless and had everthing you need for a weekend away. The bedrooms and bathrooms were located on the upper floor while the dining, kitchen and lounge areas were located down stairs.
You could cook in the kitchen or avil youself to the restaurant in the main lodge.
The on suite from the master bedroom had a large bath and separate shower. The kingsize bed was very confortable.
We ate in the restaurant the first night we arrived. Both the food and service were of a high standard but some of the wines were not that great, considering it's in the middle of the wine region, someone needs to be fired.
They accepted our Accor Advantage Plus card for dinner but rejected it for breakfast. No worry, we went someone else for breakfast.
Arrive during daylight hours, as if you don't know the area, it is difficult to find due to lack of signs and lighting.

Room Tip: In most cases there is a parking lot close to the units. If you are going to use the restaurant I wo...
