“Wonderful B&B with amazing views”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I can't recommend this B&B highly enough. The house itself is gorgeous, lovely wood floors and stone walls, with breathtaking views over the Hunter Valley. The room had every possible amenity, including an amazing spa bath and a private balcony, which was perfect for eating the amazing breakfast the lovely owner brought to our room each morning. We had a wonderful long weekend there. It was tranquil, private, hugely comfortable and very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner, when they found out I was gluten-free they made a special trip to buy me bread and cereal for breakfast. They even gave me the loaf to take away at the end of our stay. If you're looking for peace, solitude and relaxation, Bimbadeen Mountain Retreat will definitely tick all the boxes.

Room Tip: I'd definitely recommend the room with the spa bath

Perched at almost the top of the mountain, we stayed in the one bedroom cottage. Wow what a view. The cottage was plenty big enough with a comfortable bed and all the necessary touches. Christine & Joe are so friendly without intruding and gave us great advice on where to eat, whilst we were in the Hunter Valley. Definitely on my stay again list and is situated at the end of a quite road. So no noisy neighbors or traffic problems. Whist not exactly central, it certainly is easy to navigate around the area.

We stayed for 5 nights and didn't want to leave. When we first arrived I thought we might be a bit isolated but after driving around the Hunter region we realised that everything in the area is quite spread out (it is rural afterall). It was lovely to come back to peace and quiet each night, although the road up to the house is quite steep and rough. Chris's breakfast served on our balcony each morning was absolutely fantastic - couldn't have picked a nicer setting.
It would have been good to have a small kitchenette or something as it was a reasonable distance to restaurants each night - so couldn't have too many wines. It would have been good to be able to prepare something light at home and enjoy a few wines on the balcony.
Chris and Joe are very friendly hosts with great tips for places to visit.
I would also recommend taking a hot air balloon ride with Darren from Wine Country Balloons - sensational.

We stayed at Bimbadeen Mountain Retreat for three nights midweek as part of our honeymoon. We also booked a private wine tour with them (see below). Chris & Joe are very friendly and helpful hosts. My wife & I did not hire a car in Australia, so Joe picked us up from a nearby train station for an extra fee (much better value than taxi would have been!). On our free day, Chris very kindly gave us lifts to and from the Hunter Valley Gardens for no extra charge. The room was nice, the view from the house is great, and there is a path leading into the bush. The breakfast was continental-style.

Wine tour: We went on a private wine tour with Joe on one of the days. Having looked into private wine tour prices elsewhere, the one Joe provided was extremely good value! Joe is local, knows the wineries well and likes wine, great criteria for a tour guide. He is flexible, and will arrange a tour based on your personal requests if you have any. We asked for his personal recommendations and were not disappointed. Knowing that I wanted to see kangaroos in the wild, he also took us to see some. In the early afternoon, we tried some local cheese and chocolate - I needed a short break from wine after the morning, so it was good that Joe could recommend these alternatives!

I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Hunter Valley. This was my third visit and I wouldn't hesitate to come back. The rooms are immaculate, views outstanding and the service second to none. It was great to wake to the sound of bellbirds. Loved the breakfast too and plunger coffee.

This place has great views and very friendly hosts. We booked the cabin and loved it right away. Very private and comfortable with fireplace and lots of stocked wood. Bush walking nearby as well as short drive to wine country hotspots. Will visit again very soon.

Room Tip: Cabin for private romantic weekend.

This is an excellent B&B in the Hunter Valley, great house with 2 very well presented B&B rooms plus the self contained cabin.
We stay in one of the rooms that are very well appointed, including spa and fantastic views of the Valley all the way to the lights of Cessnock at night time.
Our host were absolutely great, she took care of us and our friends very well indeed.
I will love to go back there soon and I will indeed recommend this B&B to others.
