We recently stayed at AJ's and found the place amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Paul & Mandy. They went out of their way to ensure our stay was truly memorable. Underfloor heating was on, candles lit and champagne chilled.
The house was large and very spacious and the rooms modern & very quiet. We loved the french doors opening onto the large verandahs and the really thick, generously sized bathrobes. Free wireless broadband throughout the place was an added bonus.
I was a bit concerned when I saw the airport was close by. But we hardly noticed any of the light aircraft and it seems it is hardly used anyway as Mudgee no longer has any commercial flights.
The location was perfect for us. Walking distance to wineries and the cheese factory. The view across the road is of a vineyard and at the rear you see gardens and other 5 acre properties.
The breakfast each day was delicious and leisurely as we could sleep in and have breakfast at any time we felt like up to 10am. Both continental and a full range of hot breakfast options were available to choose from. I went for the pancakes and the other half went for french toast - delish. The 2nd morning we had their traditional country breakfast which was also great.
Another bonus was afternoon tea each day where Mandy cooked up a storm with items such as scones with jam and cream or chocolate mud cake. I'd come back just for the cake.
There were plently of restaurants for us to choose from each night within a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk - we did both, or you can even grab a cab. As it was a weeknight we did not get the opportunity to dine at their "Chef's Table" but we'll definitely be back to try this on a weekend.
Overall a fantastic stay...we've been telling all our friends and now planning a return visit as a group.
