What a caper we had at Capers. The house is full of character and characters (Jane, Michael and Mozart the dog). The meals Jane produced were worthy of a 5 star restaurant. Comfortable beds, beautiful views, friendly personal service; what more could one ask?

Little did I realise that B&B stood for Bed and Biking. Michael kindly invited me to take part in a 35 Km bike ride with the Wollombi Wobblies the next day which allowed us to meet the locals and feel more like friends than tourists.

We were sorry to leave and will definitely return to Capers when we next get to Sydney.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a dedicated shower cubicle; others a shower over bath.

What a lovely stay in a beautiful guest home run by the friendliest hosts. The location is superb, right at the entrance to the Hunter Valley wine region. There are so many things to explore from this location, including restaurants, cafes and stores. The sandstone building and surrounding gardens are breathtaking. And the breakfast the best I have experienced. If you are planning a quite get away from Sydney or a weekend wine tasting, this is place that should be at the top of your list. Well recommended. PS the pool is worth exploring....

I would highly recommend this place for anyone traveling to the Hunter. I was in Wollombi on a weekend away with my boyfriend. The housekeeper greeted us as if she had known us all our lives. She had a big sponge cake and tea on arrival and gave us heaps of information about the area and how to get around. The big sandstone guesthouse was stunning and the breakfast was exceptional with extensive homemade muesli, stewed and fresh fruit as well as cooked breakfast. There was no need for lunch! The host even offered to take us on a bush walk but we chose to just drink great wines and swim in the salt water pool all arvo.

We stayed at Capers guest house for a concert weekend in December 2011. There were 2 couples in the party so we were lucky enough to get the cottage, which is a 3 bedroom lovely little cottage. It was tastefully furnished with lots of home style comfort. The huge breakfast was provided in the fridge. We just had to cook it ourselves, which was no trouble on the great BBQ provided.We just loved the stay because we loved the cottage and everything was so nicely done. Wollombi is a good 20min drive from the heart of the wineries, but you don't notice it because the coutryside is so beautiful. Looking for a weekend winery tour ? I strongly recommend you consider Capers at Wollombi.

We stayed in the cottage by the road having drowned our car on a river crossing just north of town. The owners accomidated our family at very short notice. In a short time our children were in front of a warm fire in a beautiful cottage. It is a fantastic place to stay in a great village. Thanks again.

We stumbled upon Capers by chance when we got to Wollombi a little too late in the day to continue on to our intended destination. The owners were so polite and helpful. The room we were given was decorated in the style of the guesthouse and just lovely. Wollombi is such a lovely little town with great places to eat, and the tavern is a bit of fun too. Wouldn't stay anywhere else is we came back through this neck of the woods.
