Very good 8.0
Tranquility with views in the country
Excellent, however the units really need a good reading lamp beside the sofa.

Peaceful and relaxing stay right in the heart of the Hunter. Walking distance to wineries including Cockfighters, Harkham and a short cycle to Audrey. Our only concerns were the number of mozzies! We got savaged during our stay! Take your insect repellent and mortein! Thank you for a lovely time.

Great location and view and comfy cottages
Easy check in and such a great location with wineries within walking distance. The studio cottages are spacious and have everything you need. The verandah is perfect for evening bbqs and watching the sunset. The 2 horses on the property also come to visit in the evening for a back rub.

Great value, locations and experience!
Our stay was so amazing! The room was very clean and very spacious. Was very well stock with everything we needed to have an incredible weekend. The location is also fantastic - being close to food and amazing wineries but also quiet and peaceful. The views were also great! On top of all of that, the property manager Lisa was a pleasure to talk to and she was so accommodating and flexible. Highly recommended to stay here. We will be back!

Poor 2.0
What a DUMP. Avoid...
What a Dump. Avoid like COVID-19. No water. couldnt shower or flush toilet. No reply to text or phone message even after 24hrs. Insects everywhere. Booked 2 nights couldnt stay 2nd night. Payed extra to go elsewhere... I guess you get what you pay for...
Richard, au2 night trip
Good 6.0
In a word, Disappointing. Having stayed here on multiple occasions under the previous owners this stay was a let down. Previously guests were welcomed with 2 bottles of the estate's wine and a breakfast hamper. The reception was friendly. This stay there was only one sharp non butter knife, the shower head leaked everywhere and didn't stay up, the TV seemed to be in some sort of lock, the towel rail fell off and there was the threat of a penalty cleaning fee to be paid if we left any of the kitchen utensils not put away and "as we found them". Won't be staying there again.

Helpful and friendly welcome from the office on arrival. Accomodation is simple, clean and practically arranged. The location is perfect-many wineries in walking distance, beautiful view. Great value for money, highly recommended.
