Nice trip to hunter valley for red wines and relax.
Good to drive and enjoy the view along the high way and the country view.
But be better to have two drivers to avoid fatigue driving.
Also it is not far from the entrance.

Stayed for just one night on a whistle stop tour of the Hunter Valley. We were really pleased with the standard of accommodation, basic but comfortable, clean and well appointed. The booking in process was efficient and welcoming. The staff in the winery were excellent, informative and friendly. The restaurant, whilst a little expensive, served tasty enough food but mainly saved an argument over who was going to drive and we were able to bring a wonderful bottle of wine to the table which we had purchased earlier from the winery.

We booked a half-day team meeting at the Hunter Resort. The Hermitage function room met all our needs and comfortably fitted our 25 participants. We were very well taken care of and the complimentary inclusions made it a special event for all. Lunch in the restaurant was fantastic (great Pizza and Salad selection with a very pleasant atmosphere). Thanks to Jan, Nathan and all the staff who made it a great day!

Hunter Valley Resort was one of the few hotels in the area that allowed booking for just one night on the weekend. Good location, very quiet. Clean room, comfortable bed.
The only disappointment was the breakfast in the nearby Bluetongue Brewery Cafe that is a part of the resort. It was $14 for continental or $20 for hot breakfast. Neither worth the money: poor quality food, small selection and very expensive for what you get. Actually, it was just bad.

Minus the breakfast we had a good stay at the Hunter Valley Resort.

I can't thank all the staff at the Hunter Resort enough, we held our wedding there in November 2013, and through out the entire process of arranging our wedding all the staff were so accomodating andnothing was too much trouble.
Our day was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT, ourselves and our guests had the best night. Jan and the lovely bar staff, a BIG thank you for all your hard work on the night, you made it one I will never forget! xxx

The staff here were fantastic, nothing too much trouble. As a wedding venue it was ideal, large room, easy set up, magnificent food, great service, friendly knowledgeable staff. We had the BEST day from start to finish, including a big BBQ the night before the wedding and an area set aside for all of us staying there to have breakfast together on the Sunday morning. Would recommend.

The service at the resort was excellent and we felt very welcome.
When we first arrived the room assigned to us had a bit of a funny smell and we were immediately moved to another room that was spotless.
The breakfast was fantastic - far too much to finish but just what you need to line your stomach for more wine tastings.

Overall I would definitely recommend it and would happily stay here again.
