Absolutely loved staying here and will definitely be back. We had the cabin room and it was so great for our romantic weekend away. Marie and Mark couldn't have been more accommodating to our needs! We arrived on the Friday night and put our order in for our hot breakfast for the following morning before heading out to dinner. Breakfast... More

Beautiful views, amazing new rooms but the best part was the private verandah on the room, where even with many other guests staying there still felt private and secluded.

A great place to stay. Clean, tidy, quiet, friendly. Central to many of the cellar doors in the Pokolbin region. Current upgrade of accommodation, looks great. Recommending to any one wishing to spend time in the Hunter Valley.

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
