We stayed in a Garden Suite which was really nice and almost felt like an apartment with an entryway, updated bathroom, and very comfortable bed. Many reviews called the decor old fashioned and outdated, but I found it eclectic and charming - maybe needs some new carpet, but overall really liked it. We did have an awful smell coming from...

We enjoyed a wonderful five days stay. Close (walking distance) to the Circa restaurant and Peppertree Vineyard - this was a most enjoyable accommodation base. We could walk to the Pokolbin Village which also made the Convent very convenient. Enjoying the building and it's surrounds made you feel like you had stepped back in time (however, enjoying the luxurious spoils...

I really enjoyed my stay here to attend a wedding in the Hunter Valley. The hotel was very well maintained, the grounds were lovely, my bed was really comfortable, the breakfast was ample (the cappuccino and flat white were excellent!) and the staff were very helpful and lovely. I was able to check-in an hour early so I could get...

Our first impression, we loved the property and the historic scenery. However our first encounter with a staff member was unwelcoming. We were basically shut down when we expressed our interest at holding our wedding there. We were given a card to an outside events company based in the Blue Mountains and we were unable to get any further information....

Hotel in the middle of hunter valley. Hotel in a victorian building run by a small and dedicated hotel business with more luxury hotels in the area. Nice and quiet and good breakfast. Kangaroos in the early morning hopping around your room. Large spacious rooms.

We stayed there from Sat 25 Feb 2017 until Fri 3 March 2017 and really enjoyed the whole experience. Our room was no. 18 which was on the top floor facing the front, and was certainly in an ideal location in The Convent. It had double doors which opened onto a shared balcony with 3 other rooms, where there were...

I stayed here with my partner in February 2017, and enjoyed the stay. It would have been enjoyed more if we hadn't had a street lamp style light outside of our window and the blind did not go to the edge which resulted in light shining on the bed all night so we didn't sleep well. The walls are not...

Visited for the second time with my son and his wife and my cousin. All the rooms were very attractive , clean and with pleasant views . Service was a bit slow but pleasant when it arrived. Great location for visiting the vineyards. A most relaxing stay. We stayed two nights and wished we had booked more.
