5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Had a great 2 night stay here. Staff were great, especially the waitress who served us dinner on our first night and recommended a wine tour for us. Reception booked it that night for us and we were off at ten o clock the next day! Room was beautiful, hotel set in fabulous grounds. Would definitely return to the Hunter Valley Region and this hotel too. Was a great rest between all the flights and travelling.

This hotel is well located on a rise so rooms with verandas are my pick, to make the most of the view. The staff are always helpful, the rooms comfortable and clean.
There is a pool, though I have not used it but do find the lounge inviting - particularly in winter when the fire is burning.

The reception staff were very courteous and helpful. The hotel has good views, free parking, and a complimentary free internet access. Breakfast is costly at $22.50 per person when compared to number of items served.

However we were disappointed with the overall experience.

On the first day, we turned on the electric tea kettle and the electricity tripped in our room. We came to know that this issue was known and were moved to another room which we stayed in for the first day. This was in addition to the phone not operating in the first room. Next day we were upgraded to a deluxe room and were confirmed that this would not entail any cost. The deluxe room was better and had good views.

However to our dismay, we found a small cockroach inside the bed mattress when we woke up the second morning and killed it. This was informed at reception. While the bedsheets were changed, the room was not vacuumed and toilet papers were not replenished which we realized on returning at night. We noticed a small cockroach in the breakfast room top but did not want to disturb the other guests.

On checkout, we found an additional charge for the room upgrade which was informed to be free earlier. After a couple of wrong card swipes and corrections, we were able to finally checkout.

Hope the management checks and addresses these issues for future guests.

Good location and great view of the hunter surroundings.
Rooms need a bit of care and reno's needed but not too bad. Bathroom clean and neat.
Staff at reception are very helpful and check in was quick.
walls are a little thin so we could hear the baby cry next door, so make sure you are away from kids if you dont have any.
Overall it was a good stay.

Stayed here with a friend for A Day on the Green and we were stunned by the beauty and serenity. Arriving and opening the door to reception to the best entrance I have ever seen, beautiful tiling and a grand dome with leadlight glass in the middle. The room was beautifully renovated, clean, huge bathroom with a bath, gorgeous view. Had a great night's sleep, fresh, crisp linen on the bed. Lovely rose garden and 2 weddings taking place, plenty of space for everyone to enjoy themselves.
