I purchased a scoopon deal at the tuscany wine estate for my best friend and I to stay at for two nights. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality of all the staff and will definitely be returning with more friends.

The room overlooked two ponds and a lavender garden with kangaroos at your door step at dawn and dusk. It was just so majestic and the perfect unwind from the city hustle and bustle.

We took the full day wine tour with the 30% discount at vineyard shuttle tours for $35 each! We went to about 6 wineries all with amazing tastings.

Overall my best friend and I loved the quiet location at the top of the hill looking over the vineyards and will be returning soon for a other visit.

The hotel is very welcoming at reception. Very basic rooms. Bathroom in desperate need of refurbishing. Good to have the bar and restaurant close. Boring on a Saturday night though. Heard mixed reviews on the Mill restaurant. Had very average breakfast the next morning. Over done poached eggs and something like steamed bacon! Not bad but needs a bit more thought. They also take one night stays.

Spent 2 nights in the 'Deluxe Olive Grove Room'- kangaroos were at our courtyard in the morning! Loved it! And a wonderful treat for kids to see.
Chose this view /experience rather than the 'Vineyard' room view of the vineyards as you can get to experience this wonderful view from the on site eateries - where you also get a top notch and enchanting view of the hot air balloons floating across in the horizon! Just stunning!).

Rooms were clean, spacious and yet cosy.

The estate is conveniently located and extremely accessible to bar, restaurants, winery, Cheese factory (on site) and very close by to (horse riding and brewery).

The Brokeback Bar has a wonderful ambience and decor - and food is good and generously served. Only dined at the Mill Restaurant for breakfast (which was good - especially the yoghurt - creamy, thick and tasting indulgent! Also serve a good barista style coffee!

Tracey at Reception was a standout. Very welcoming, helpful and amicable in all that she did which added to the 'boutique hotel' ambience of the place.

The Binnorie Dairy Cheese Factory on site is a huge plus - they have tremendously tasty goats cheese feta!!!!

Really, really loved the place and would love to return again one day soon!

Room Tip: Go for the 'Olive Grove Rooms' to have view of the wallabies and kangaroos from your room!

My husband and I travelled from Sydney hoping to enjoy a relaxing weekend away for my birthday. It was obvious from the second we arrived this was in fact far from reality. We were ignored by reception for a good 5 minutes before she even looked up at us, our room was made up of dirty carpet, dirty walls, a dirty bathroom and stained bed linen. When we called reception and notified them of this we were advised that there were no other rooms available to us. We only managed to stay for one of our intended 3 nights (we decided to stay elsewhere in Pokolbin for our remaining time), and upon early departure we found the manager (if thats what you want to call her) Kirsty to be impolite, sarcastic, unapologetic and plain rude! Horrible place and horrible staff. We are just ad we were able to salvage our weekend away once we found alternative accommodations.

Pros: lovely location with great views; kangaroo watching from room; spacious room; clean; big comfy bed; receptionist very nice.
Cons: not a hotel, essentially a slightly upmarket motel; not great soundproofing (can hear conversations and bathroom noise very loud); wifi charged at 15 bucks a day; average breakfast (luke warm cooked breakfast and coffee); veggie breakfast served with sausages and associated fat (not clever); manageress(?) talking to receptionist about us in the third person while we are stood there (not polite) whilst wearing a tracksuit and munching on a banana (unprofessional to say the least).
In summary, this place could be amazing but a few points let it down. If we were paying the full advertised price rather than groupon price I would be fuming. We didn't eat in either of the on-site restaurants after reading their trip advisor reviews and, judging by the distinctly average breakfasts and general service, we made the right choice. Please also note that this is not a wine producing wine estate which to me is a little misleading. If you want to stay on a real wine estate then book somewhere else. Spelling and grammatical errors on the website just about sum this place up....a bit sloppy.

We found the staff most obliging, accommodation was very comfortable and we thought the overall stay was excellent value. With the top quality dining available there is no need to go anywhere else. Just catch a bus and enjoy the wine tasting and leave the rest to Tuscany Wine Estate Resort.

I am a local and never seem to get a chance to sample what's right on my door step. After recently attending a wedding at Tuscany I was highly impressed. The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble, food was faboulous and the decorations were amazing. It was even great for the kids with kangaroos out the back door on the first two mornings of our stay. Our friends were all raving about what a great night it was. Would definately come again...
