“Great stay”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Michael, the owner, was very helpful and friendly - allowing us to check in late and booking us on to a fantastic wine tour at short notice. The studio villa was clean and comfortable. It was a real pleasure to have a space to relax in, both inside and out, and to be able to prepare our own breakfast in the morning - food provided. If you are looking for somewhere reasonably priced and with more character than hotel/motel, I would highly recommended you stay here.

We stayed at Grapevines for 2 nights for a nice weekend getaway in Hunter Valley. The location is superb, right smack dab in the middle of all the action and wineries. I don't think you could find a more central location. On top of the fabulous location, the place is incredible, set back from the road in the middle of a field, you can see the Blue Mountains and grapevines from your outdoor porch area. Michael is incredibly hospitable and spent time with me to point out all of the best wineries and restaurants, taking a lot of the guesswork out of our plans. His dogs are super friendly too! I would definitely stay here again!

We found Michael's Boutique by going to the 'Info' office in Cessnock - they recommended it to us and boy were we glad they did. The location is perfect for exploring the Hunter Valley. The room was very comfortable and clean, the breakfast was terrific. They supplied the yummy farm-fresh/free-range eggs, ham, toast and coffee. We got to prepare it to our own likes in the small but very efficient kitchen. It was a very enjoyable visit and we found Michael's warmth and humor perfectly in-line with the friendly, laid-back Aussie attitude we'd found almost everywhere. Having a late glass of wine on the patio with the stars out, and then having coffee on that patio watching the sun come up was awesome.

Thank you for your review. We thoroughly enjoyed having you at Grapevines and were very pleased to know that you were able to take advantage of the views, the clear skies with evening stars (hope you discovered the Southern Cross), the sunrise and so on. We also enjoyed chatting with you about your part of the world so far distant from us - it is a great opportunity to catch up on places we have visited ourselves in previous times. You will always be welcome at Grapevines in you chance to come back this way.

We've stayed here every Winter for the past 4 years now, and have never failed to have a wonderful experience. We've tried the studio and the bigger accommodations, and have found them all to be lacking in nothing. Michael was an excellent host, not to mention his lovely labradors. Waking up in this place was nothing short of perfect.

We had booked a Studio Villa, but on arrival were informed we were to stay in the 2bedroom villa with large lounge/dining, kitchen and outside area. It was really lovely.
The bedroom was light, airy and really comfortable. So nice to have fresh air instead of aircon!!
The views from both the bedroom and the lounge area and deck were beautiful. Rolling, grassy paddocks looking over grapevines to the hills in the distance.
The villa was superbly equipped and the owner gave us fantastic information for nearby tourist spots.
The owners' two pet labradors were a real hit with us as they were so well behaved. We had been away from our farm for a week and madly missed our dogs!!
We would highly recommend this accommodation and certainly will stay here if we return to the Hunter Valley.

Grapevines is perfectly located has great views of rolling vinyards with native wildlife often close by , to say the place is Idyllic is an understatement.
The villas are spacious and modern with excellent facilites, each of them is self contained with a full kitchen.
We however spent most of our time on the large deck using the BBQ and enjoying the scenery after a long day of wine tastings.
Grapevines is conveniently located close to a number of major wineries making sighseeing a breeze.
Michael the proprieter was extremely helpful and friendly as were the two Golden Retrievers Chloe and Bacchus.

We stayed for one magnificient night during our trip from Cairns to Sydney. This place was by far the best and most beautiful stop on our trip. The rooms are very spacious and include a small kitchen to make breakfast. The view from the Veranda at the back of the house is breathtaking, especially at sunset. You can even spot some kangaroos while having a sip of hunter valley wine. The Walking distance to harrigans Pub is about 10 minutes and there are several wineyards also in Walking distance for a wine tasting. For everything else it is better to take the car. Our host was very friendly and welcoming and we had a great Chat in the morning. He also helped us a great deal planning our stay in hunter valley. Also, we loved the Dogs!
