We had a group of 9 adults stay in the "Lodge" at Ironstone recently and we were very very impressed. The Lodge has been purpose built (it seems) for large families or groups and could comfortably accommodate 12 adults. Every room has it's own bathroom - we absolutely loved

This fantastic estate just minutes the crown plaza at Pokolbin is the ideal place to stay for a weekend or longer stay in the Hunter Valley. We had a group of 12 staying for the "day on the green" and found the location convenient, quiet, clean and certainly comfortable.

Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review of Ironstone Lodge. Glen and I hope to see you on a return visit, maybe for another concert. Bus pickups can be arranged to pick you up at Ironstone Estate for a direct transfer to the concerts. Yes we agree with your comment about having a dirt road. We have lived at Ironstone Estate for 26 yrs and have had no luck with Cessnock Council providing a tar road.

"There are two houses at the property. The Homestead is more designed for families and young groups with the Pool and BBQ area while the Lodge would be more suited for business trips and older people"
"Located in private grounds so no noise whatsoever."
"Lovely scenic spot and lots of privacy. Great place to go with a group of friends, and beats a hotel anyday!"
"All rooms are similiar size with their own ensuite. There is a larger room for disabled access and the largest room which has a spa. So whatever suits."
"We chose bedroom close to main living - not as far a walk up the hallway!"
