“Hunter Valley Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2011

Organised a Hunter Valley getaway for our Club members and had the pleasure to stay at Hunter Resort.
The staff was easy going and friendly and provided excellent service.
I highly recommend Hunter Resort.

For a quiet mid-wninter retreat Hunter resort is passbale. Not overly exciting. The restaurant was awful however. The Osso-Buca the worst I have ever tasted - dry and overcooked. The bar and micro-brewery was nice - but not very much atmosphere and not very wellheated for Winter...

Worst this of all - I beleive that the rooms are all non-smoking but our neigbours smoked and the smoke and smell came through the vents.....

Thanks for the positive feedback... We are a 100% non smoking establishment. It's such a shame when smokers do not respect our non smoking in rooms policy. It's not nice for other guests, and our housekeeping ladies have to work even harder to get the smell out of the room...

We have stayed here several times and have always been impressed. I thought the buffet breakfast was good value but the restaurant was out of our price range as was the horse riding($55 a child). We had a smoke issue with a neighbour smoking in their bathroom - the smoke seeped into our bathroom then filled our room. One of the long term staff( has always helped us over our 4 stays reccommending wine, sorting out any hassles that may have arisen and taking tours)called Nathan went to every room checking on our behalf in a most polite and effective way. The guilty party denied smoking but stopped anyway so we were able to return to our room but then "punished" us by keeping the TV up full bore until about 2AM-why they just didn't stay in a smoking room, I don't know...anyway despite this we had a great stay and the way our our problem was dealt with highlights the caring nature of the staff who had to endure a fair bit during our stay-fully booked for a start-yet always nice and not flustered in sorting issues out. unfortunately I never had a chance to shout the Nathan guy a beer for his help as he was running a cooking school when we left. The mattress was heavenly and the cleaner worked around us.Can't recommend this place enough.

Room Tip: Negotiate when making reservation and try to avoid NSW School Hols as often booked out

I stayed there with my family for 2 days trip in hunter valley in July 2010. Although my family cannot speak English, the front lady was very nice, kind, smiley and helpful. We wanted to do BBQ but we needed more plates and cutlery, the front lady asked the kitchen to bring them straight away, and we could have a lovely family BBQ there after the sincere service of the staff. The lodge we stayed there was clean and cozy. Nothing luxury though, we had a very nice family conversation in the living room where people can gather and chat. I really loved the place, and my family visited Australia for me really enjoyed the Hunter Resort. Thank you so much for everything and I will definitely return here when I go to Hunter valley.

We loved being in a Log Cabin within the Vineyard, the interior was very pretty, clean and comfortable, with lovely views.
The swimming pool was very welcoming after a 112miles drive.
Could not fault anything, staff, food, wine tasting an enjoyable stay.
