My wife and I stayed with a couple of friends for a long lunch. Our room had a verandah that looked over the vineyards and rolling hills of Pokolbin. We also had free access to a large pavilion with fireplace for a late night get together with friends. Our hosts, Marie and Mark, were discreet but always available to suggest...

Amazing stay! Me and my girlfriend stayed here and were lucky enough to get accommodation that night as there was a concert on and we didn't plan anything! We stayed when Fran and Chris were looking after the place. The place itself is just incredible, but we cannot thank Fran enough for making what was already a special place even...

Stayed for 2 nights with several other couples for the Lovedale Long Lunch. Venue is perfect for a group of friends as there is a large common room available to use to gather together. Setting is very picturesque, rooms are comfortable and breakfast very tasty.

Modern self contained accommodation in a central winery location. Hosts Marie and Mark were very welcoming and attentive. Ideal venue for a family reunion with spacious common area and wonderful cooking facilities. Definitely worth a return visit.

We couldn't of asked for a better weekend away, only a couple of hours out of Sydney and once there you instantly start to relax in the beautiful surroundings. Nothing was to much trouble for Marie who answered any of my questions before our arrival and when there. I will definitely be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful elevated property in the heart of the grape growing district of Pokolbin with fabulous views of the surrounding vineyards and the Brokenback mountain range.Quietly tucked away yet so close to all the very best that the wine region has to offer including only minutes to 4 world class golf courses.Recently refurbished and upgraded hotel style rooms are very comfortable with everything you need to make your stay easy and enjoyable with large glass french doors opening out onto your private veranda and perfectly framing the stunning vista. The separate loft/villa cottage provides a luxurious space with full amenities.The views from here are also fantastic with doors that open out onto the garden and courtyard area.Our small table grape vineyard and our neighbours extra large Chardonnay & Shiraz vineyard and farm animals complete the picture. The salt water swimming pool along side the BBQ area and the guest pavilion provides a refreshing end to a day out amongst the many cellar doors, restaurants, cafes, gardens etc during the summer months. The pavilion is the perfect place to relax and watch the sun go down. ... more   less
