Billabong Moon
Reviewed June 14, 2007

We absolutely loved Billabong Moon. The rooms are classy and not remotely tacky We stayed in Sunset Ridge and I couldn't tell if you there were other people in - I never saw anyone the whole time. This is not a hotel. But it is what a Bed & Breakfast should be. We only met out hosts on checking in and checking out - their style is very much "if you need anything - call us". The rooms had everything and were so thoughtfully prepared. Just little touches. We had local wine, and chocolates, and all the breakfast provisions. Couldn't speak highly enough of it.

Pure heaven.... the studio cottage was beautiful, the owners welcoming, there was a bottle of wine and cheese plate in the room on arrival. All cooking utensils that you would need were there, including a BBQ. Room was spacious and comfortable, and was just perfect. We loved every minute of our stay and would highly recommend. Make sure you go and have dinner at one of the vineyards.

My wife and i stayed there after our wedding and loved the place from the minute we were there. while there we inspected each cottage and they all looked really nice, all the furnishings and fit outs were of good taste and had a good vibe about them.

we stayed for 4 nights, and liked the place so much we extended our stay for another two. unfortuantely we couldnt stay in the same cottage (sunset ridge), and stayed in the one we liked least (cant remember the name, it was the artists retreat or something like that), even then, the place was very nice, only issue was that it was at the front of the property, so it wasnt as secluded as the others.

we have been to alot of places in the hunter and this place would have to be easily the best (i havent yet stayed at the tower though and that looks pretty good).

highly reccommended.

Well, what a wonderful place, Jenny and Andy are just simply wonderful, we had total privacy, the treetops cottage was to the highest of standards, everything was so thought out, everything you could possibly need was there. We had a fantastic time. BBQ package is highly recommeded Jenny made such an effort in to taking the hard work out for us, to make sure that our stay was that extra bit more special. Amazing quality all round can't say enough great things about it all.
Have told every one we know to go there, and we will be back again and again. Worth every penny!

We were promised breakfast 'every day', but only received one serving for four nights stayed there,

We were promised wine on arrival, but none was provided.

After we left, they contacted us, with an unsigned, unauthorised $50 debit receipt from my husband's credit card attached to a rude letter. They charged us an extra $50 to clean the cottage after we left, even though we were never informed of an extra fee, or agreed to the extra debit from our credit card. When I contacted them and threatened legal action against them, they responded by immediately refunding the money, then sending a very rude email about how lawyers and movie stars had stayed with them before and were always happy... as if I cared about their other customer's alleged careers, and as if someone's career made them better than anyone else.

We will go back to the Hunter again, but never to Billabong Moon.
