Having stayed at a few of the hotels in Pokolbin i was looking for something nicer and was prepared to search further a field to find it , this is it !, perfect for couples the secluded villas and their private pools offer everything you need for the Hunter Valley get away, i was a little concerned about being far away from the main wineries but it really isn't that far, only ten minutes and your at Roche etc. The villa was beautifully presented and we didn't mind that there was no foxtel or wifi., sitting by the pool was much nicer !. Breakfast is all sorted with bacon eggs cereal bread etc which was a pleasant surprise. We were amazed at the water pressure the shower had considering its on tank water ! , the hosts were just a call away and were very flexible with our needs. i couldn't recommend this place enough and will be returning as often as possible !
Mandalay Villas are the perfect place to relax and unwind, pity we had to go home
Everything has been thought of in the villas, everything you need is there
A great relaxing quiet holiday, just lazing around the pool
Thank you Simon and Toni
Had an absolute blast at the Mandalay Villas. Simon and Toni were great hosts, with great recommendations for both Vineyards and food locations. Very helpful and willing to provide additionals such as bikes, and a horse ride!
Would most definitely stay here again.
Our stay at Mandalay Villas was superb.
Our hosts Toni and Simon provided us with such a charming country experience that we’ll definitely be back. The rural setting is so peaceful and picturesque, but the villa itself is spacious and modern with a cheery wood burning fireplace.
It was the perfect starting point for a tour of the local wineries and a great place to come back to and enjoy our wines and a great dinner. The next day we just relaxed and soaked up the country atmosphere.
Loved it !
After two decades of regularly visiting the Hunter, we happened to take a chance on accommodation away from the mainstream. So glad we did as Mandalay was the best find. Ten minute drive to Cessnock and not much more to main Hunter region. We have always looked for that special place and until now, have never found it. We will always book at Mandalay. Simon and Toni are the perfect hosts, so accommodating and welcoming and the property is quiet and serene. This is our home away from home. More than highly recommend the experience and stay.
We booked Mandalay due to most places being full for Bruce concert, lucky us!! Rover coach pick up for concert, at nice pub, is only 2 mins away; plenty of the best vineyards & eateries are within easy reach, so location was great. Villa2 itself was clean, modern & equipped with everything, could seriously live here ;) ....and the private heated pool, with jets, was great for a refresh & muscle massage. The breakfast provided was top notch, but the "best value" was provided by hosts Toni & Simon......great people with a wonderful property, we'll be back for sure ....
Almost a year to the day we made it back from the other side of the world.
Mandalay and Villa 2 was just as brilliant as the last time.
44 degrees on the weekend and we were SO pleased we had a private pool to dip in and out of.
If you are thinking of accommodation in the Hunter then you definitely MUST give these Villas try.
Thanks Simon & Toni for being brilliant hosts again.
Excellent in every sense.
