I stayed at Hillview this weekend with a large group for a family reunion. The farmstay was chosen because of its great location between all travelling parties. It was only 2 hours drive from Canberra, and is quite close to Wagga. We booked all the cabins and had about 18 people staying together just for one night.
Firstly, I was pleasantly surprised at the gorgeous modern facilities and hotel-standard beds, linen and bathrooms. We used the big cabin as our common room/ meeting place because it has a very large lounge/dining/kitchen area.
At the back of the large cabin we were able to set up lots of tables and chairs to eat meals together and do art. The gardens are lovely and peaceful, and being country-folk all, we felt very at home!
Most of the beds are King-size and are very comfortable. The noise from the highway could rarely be heard, and we all slept soundly. There's a great tennis court and plenty of animals to see if that's what you're interested in. I'm not sure how much we paid for the cabins as we divided up the total price between us ($60pp), but it seemed very reasonable.
The breakfast of bacon and eggs plus cereal, toast etc was a nice touch, and the kitchens had anything we could need to make a gourmet meal (however only the big cabin has an oven).
One disadvantage is the lack of access for those who are mobility impaired. My 84 year old grandmother had difficulty navigating the steps in and out of the cabin, because they had no railings, and there are no ramps that we could see for wheelchairs.
We're looking forward to going back next year.
