It was fairly comfortable but certainly not what I would consider as 5-star hotel. Not even the basics like toothbrush and toothpaste! I would have expected a coffee making machine with capsules and much better selection of teas.

Tonic was the perfect getaway to the Hunter Valley, close to wineries, spacious, beautiful views, rooms and facilities. Will be back.

Loved it in Lovedale..but
What a great weekend in the Hunter at the perfectly styled Tonic Hotel. Loved the location,the outlook and breeze in, breeze out check in, check out process. The only negatives we had were the lower than expected quality of the supplied toiletries, no shower caps and general bathroom add ons you get in boutique stays. The Woolworths croissants were a little underwhelming particularly when there were no condiments supplied as well. A little jam and some locally baked pastries would have done nicely. These little annoyances will not deter us from coming back real soon

Lovely adults only unique property. Tastefully styled rooms; quiet and private. All rooms have a fantastic vista of the serene lake, a gorgeous view to wake to in the morning. The pool and lounge area are fabulous too.

4/10 Fair

I really want to give this property 5 stars. BUT, the design of the rooms needs addressing. You can hear EVERYTHING from the neighbouring rooms. I came here to escape the city / noise! I wanted to rest, relax and get lots of sleep. The noise from the other guests ruined the whole vibe and also my sleep. Instead of being able to unwind and enjoy the natural surrounds and sounds, all I could hear was their loud conversations etc. I had to listen to music, tv etc to drown out their noise. This place wasn’t cheap either. There was no service eg cleaning, welcome, but I’m assuming that’s due to covid precautions. Otherwise, the eco style was wonderful. Nice bath. Breakfast food in the fridge was plentiful and nice. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was rock hard. Location was great, close to everything and easily accessed from the freeway, 1.5-2hrs drive from Sydney.

The view of the room is amazing and it had a lot of space. Unfortunately when we arrived I’m not sure when they did the cleaning of the room. There were dead bugs in the bathroom and a couple of dead spiders on the WC. Also, we didn’t get cleaning in the room, so we had the breakfast included but basically you need to do your dishes and when you are on holiday that is the last thing you want to do.
