“Very special”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

We stayed in early May, the weather was a little cold but sunny and a lovely outlook to be enjoyed from the resort. Accommodation was neat, clean and tidy. The vineyard tourguide was so informative, the wine tasting was much fun, we learnt so much and enjoyed many of the wines. We dined at the restaurant, and enjoyed the food and menu, the staff all very attentive. Well situated to many other wineries.
Will go back again.

We had a great time wine tasting here. We were lucky to be served by Terry who has so much knowledge and taught us a lot as well as just having a great personality. was a great place to end our day of wineries.

Our first time at the Hunter Valley Resort. It was very clean & tidy, staff were very accommodating with all our requests & a great feature was the Horse riding that was available on the resort at very affordable prices. Bit too cold when we travelled for use of the pool & spa, but maybe next time we'll travel in summer :)

Room Tip: If travelling with kids, perhaps pay a bit more for a room with a kitchenette, will save you lots of...

If you are looking for a nice safe family resort with plenty of activities to keep the kids occupied then I wud recommend Hunter Valley Resort.
The staff are very friendly, hospitable, & polite. The rooms are clean with good AC & heating and is family friendly the setup for a family with 2 kids is ideal.
There are lots of things to do at the resort, horse riding - pony rides for kids is a must they have such good fun and it is worth it seeing the smile on their faces.
The restaurant is good with great food & a kids menu very reasonably priced.
We will definitely be staying there again as the wine experience is very informative and not your run of the mill crowded experience that you can have on the main drag - plus high quality wine also.
See you next time -

My partner and I stayed here on our first visit to hunter valley. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Wine theatre and tasting was by far the most enjoyable and engaging experience from all the different wineries 7 we visited. Accommodation as expected and lovely manicured gardens. Will definitely choose to stay here again on next visit to the region

We were celebrating our 40th Anniversary and travelled up to the Hunter with another couple. We had adjoining rooms in a cabin which were beautifully appointed. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us from the moment we checked in at reception, the restaurant staff, cafe staff and cellar staff - terrific! The location is so peaceful, woken each morning to the call of the magpies. Ideally situated, close to other places in the area we wanted to visit. We would stay there anytime and thoroughly recommend it. In fact, we have told our travel agent to put it on their recommended list. Our wine purchases from the "The Family" label are beautiful AND freight free!
