My boyfriend and I stayed in the Vue for 3 nights in July and it was amazing. Everything from the view, the gas fireplace, the spa and waking up to Aussie wildlife - it was all perfect. We barely saw a soul while we were there which was ideal for us seeing as we were looking for a comfortable escape from busy Sydney life. The self check-in and check-out is a fantastic system. The breakfast they provided was great as well - fresh tomatoes and eggs, bacon, fresh milk, juice, tea and a variety of cereal and oats. Pretty much anything that people generally have for breakfast, they had. They also had a great Weber BBQ in the courtyard which we used quite a bit. Only downside is that it is a half hour drive to Pokolbin so if this is the first time you've been to the Hunter, it's probably not the best location for you. Seeing as we were there in the middle of winter, we were a bit discouraged from going out for dinner after returning to the cottage in the afternoon. But that's largely because it was a such a fantastic place to stay and it was hard to get out of the spa!
For people who need to be connected to the outside world, there is no reception or 3G in the area whatsoever which I suppose can be an issue for some. Also, right next to the Vue is a farm full of cows (which I personally absolutely love) but if you're light sleeper, they do moo quite a bit early in the morning.
Anyhow, LOVED this place, would definitely go back.
