This is the second time we've stayed at Cypress Lakes. If you are looking for a good value, well located place in the Hunter Valley - this is quite a good option.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa with friends. The villas are designed well for sharing with friends as each bedroom has its own ensuite. The decor was a little dated but overall the villa was clean and functional. It's great having a kitchen and being able to self-cater. Though be warned that there isn't an abundance of utensils, crockery or other kitchen items. There was also a BBQ on the deck.
Instead of booking through the resort this time, we booked a villa through the Stayz website. I understand that some of the villas are owned privately so you can rent directly from the owners. We saved a considerable amount booking this way rather than going through the resort. We couldn't use the resort's facilities or go to the restaurant to have breakfast but that was fine with us as we were in the Hunter to go wine tasting.
Cypress Lakes doesn't have the "wow" factor but if you are looking for a good value place to stay that is in the heart of the Hunter, it's a great option.
