We stayed in the one bedroom villa, the rooms are up larger than average, very clean. We had a view of the golf course which was a bonus and a nice size balcony. Buffet breakfast was great, food quality was definitely the stand out. Staff were extremely friendly and accomodating. The hotel has everything you need including an enormous pool,...

We got a villa room presented nicely but had a weird pool smell to it! The room was basic nothing special well over priced but I guess it's the location you are paying for. Has everything you need but steer clear of the buffet breakfast if you don't want to pay $38.50 per head

This place is a little oasis in the Hunter Valley A great golf course, a boutique brewery, two restaurants, a bar, a pool, a kids club and you're always looked after by friendly staff.

My husband and I stayed here on 3-5th March. It seems that this hotel is not deserving of its status- hygiene and thorough cleaning is clearly not a priority. My husband contracted athlete's foot whilst staying here- he only used the shower in our room. We are utterly disgusted and now inconvenienced by this. This is the first time this...

Enjoyed a great stay. It poured with rain all weekend but facilities were great and the real highlight was the staff who were warm, attentive and friendly. Hotel was very busy but coped well with large numbers of guests. Breakfast offered great choices and appeared to be a winner with everyone. Would definitely stay again

Stayed in a one bedroom ground floor villa. The room was comfortable, spacious... and dark. Continuously turning on the lights, only to find them already on! Also note that villas are not serviced on a daily basis. Another interesting feature is that the room was about 5 metres from the golf fairway (yes I know, it is a golf resort),...

Staff were very friendly and facilities were well maintained alongside a picturesque golf course. Free buggy service to get you from A to B. While this is probably as good as you get in the countryside, I was a little disappointed that the bed was not made nor fresh towels and toiletries replenished on a daily basis.

The location is convenient if you are visiting the Hunter Valley. The grounds are lovely and perfect if you want to play golf. The rooms were comfortable and clean but not the nicest I've stayed in. .......

We were exploring the Hunter Valley area which is beautiful and this hotel is ideally located. But its tired and bland if you are on holiday and want something more in keeping with the scenery/location which with hindsight we did.
