After a few hectic weeks at work we were looking forward to a romantic getaway in Hunter Valley for our 1st year anniversary! As we arrived just after 9pm, we made our way to our guestroom and were greeted by our lovely host Carol along the way, the room was beautifully furnished and smelt wonderful and our bottle of wine and cheese platter went down a treat. We woke up in the morning and wandered down through the beautiful gardens to the pool room where breakfast was served and oh my goodness....what a feast! Fruit salads, mini apple crumbles(which were to die for), stewed fruits, yoghurt, an array of breakfast cereals, bircher muslie, crossaints, muffins, coffee, hot chocolate, assortment of teas, juices... you name it, it was there. Carol is an fantastic cook and nothing is ever to much of an ask! After breakfast we asked Carol to suggest which wineries or places to visit and Peter came to the rescue, he mapped out for us where to go, where to have lunch etc which was so helpful! And every day we got back, our bed was made and room tidy again.
All in all this place is definately value for money, considering you are in the heart of the hunter valley and you are a stone throw away from a big range of wineries and restaurants. The property is gorgeous, the hosts are very hospitable and lovely, rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean and the breakfast as i mentioned earlier was AMAZING! The only little thing was my husband was a little sad about was that there were no bacon and eggs. Its the little things that make this place even more special such a freshly ground coffee and plunger in your room, fresh milk and cold water every day, the cheese plate and bottle of wine.
Thank you Carol and Peter for your hospitality, we will be back for sure. Hopefully next time i can meet your resident kangaroo.
