Recent guest reviews
Chef Nathan was very funny and very professional, food was amazing and in a beautiful setting. All the staff were very accommodating.We loved the coziness and serene atmosphere of the vineyard and would not hesitate to book again.
The Vine Tour was very informative. Our tour guide David was very friendly and witty. We have learnt a lot about Australian white and red in the wine theatre. Plus, the wine tasting was very generous. We had a great time.
very good price, great location in the Hunter, safe place, spacious and clean rooms, all useful amenities like kettle included, helpful staff, quick check-in and check-out, beautiful views around the resort. totally recommend!
Decided on a last minute trip to Australia and wanted to get out of Sydney because we're always coming here. We chose Hunter Valley because it was close and relatively unknown to us in the States. Also heard that they make incredible semmilon and shiraz. Arrived mid evening after the scenic drive up from the Blue Mountains. Front desk clerk was overwhelmingly helpful and made for a nice first impression. She was able to provide all the winery and brewery information we needed to go out tasting the next day. Also gave a few restaurant recommendations and tips. We didn't feel like being in the car any longer, so we ate on sight at the newly added Matilda Bay Brewing Company. Really, an on sight brewery!...we were psyched not knowing before we arrived, but were so happy to be able to get their beers after having them in Western Australia. Food was decent and the menu had enough for most people. My only complaint was that the bartender appeared to be closing up when we sat down for dinner at 7:30pm. We asked if they were done serving and the reply was "no, we're open until 9:00pm." He then appeared to be very interested in rushing us along and getting our order as quick as possible. Although I will say, he had very good beer knowledge. The room was comfortable and basic. Clean, a good bed, a hot shower and internet. It could use a little updating, but works nonetheless. Breakfast both mornings is limited, but adequate. Hot and cold items, fruits, breads and cereals are all available. Coffee is self serve. The staff was extremely pleasant, but a little overwhelmed with the group that bombarded them each morning, all at once. She could have used an extra person to assist her. Having said that, she was cheerful and smiling the whole time. It was great location in Pokolbin and close (as you can get) to some great wineries and breweries. Recommended if you find yourself in the area.
Amongst a beautiful setting you´d find Hunter Valley Resort. Gorgeous vineyards whereever you look. The staff is very very friendly, from frontdesk to bar/restaurant staff and the general manager of this lovely place; Philip. What an amazing property, very authentic, rustic feel. The Hunter room was large and the bed....it felt like heaven! The food was amazing! Top of the noche qualitly. The wine-education was very informing and the wines...well, delisious as well! Can highly recommend dining & wining inside the restaurant! Best thing ever was our early morning stroll through the vineyards where we encountered dozens, maybe even onehundred Kangaroos. Amazing and the best experience ever. Cannot stretch or recommend this place enough... it is a must see and must go to for every Australia-visitor, and please do yourself a favor; stay 2 or more nights!
I am glad that my wife and I decided to spend a night in the valley and more so that we picked the Hunter Valley Resort. The rooms are clean and well appointed and opens up to a generous veranda with great views.
There is comfortable, well-appointed accommodation for families, couples and singles with plenty to do at this winery and in the area. The staff were all helpful and great company. There is a wine tour which is a real learning experience. Segway tours, electric bikes, tennis courts, a swimming pool to name some activities are available for use. There is also an excellent Resturant and bar which has a selection of local Hunter Valley wines and beer. There are a variety of activities to attend in the immediate district for all ages and interests. As a family, we really enjoyed our stay.
Many people travelling regularly from Sydney to the New England are often looking for a welcome stopover. We arrived very late here and I guess our only big criticism was that at night, it is very difficult to find your way around. The Resort surrounds are very poorly lit and poorly signposted. After receiving directions from reception, we had great difficulty in locating our room as it was impossible to even find the room number in the dark. The rooms are very 90's but comfortable and warm. Appropriately priced.
Although I took my mother to stay with me this place is perfect for a romantic getaway. We stayed in the spa cabin and woke up to views of the stunning views of the countryside and horses feeding in the paddock right in front of our verandah. The place is clean and very quaint, and the staff were very friendly. There's also a number of wineries within a few mins drive which was also convenient.
Stayed here for 2 nights. I didn't have hot water in the shower + the shower had no pressure at all (pretty much just dripped out). I mentioned this to the staff and they said they will get maintenance on it. Nothing was fixed. I was staying at the resort because I had wedding to go to in the area. I had to get ready and wash my hair in the sink. Room 229. Don't stay here unless you don't plan to shower.
