Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have just had a wonderful weekend, staying at the Red Door Collective. The reason for the escape away from Sydney was to celebrate my 60th Birthday. My husband & I stayed in the Chardonnay Cottage and my 2 sisters stayed in the Semillon Cottage. Both cottages are exceptional. Evelyn & Stewart are the perfect hosts, and make you feel more like family than a paying guest. There was no issue when I asked Evelyn if she could cook our dinner on Saturday night, and it was delicious. The position and layout of the estate lets you relax, yet it is still close enough to allow you to explore the area without too much effort. This is our 3rd stay at the Red Door Collective and each time we are so impressed.

We have just spent the best 2 days celebrating our 45th Wedding Anniversary and my wife 75th Birthday . The Accommodation in the Chardonnay Cottage was superb and every thing is so clean and well presented not to mention the Cheese Platter and Complimentary wine on arrival. The A la carte breakfast was simply the best we have ever experienced and on our Wedding Anniversary Evelyn prepared a 5 star home cooked dinner whist Stewart was our maître de and kept our wine glasses full and coffee on hand . They are by far the best hosts we have ever experienced in Australia and Oversea . We have already booked for our Anniversary next year Greg and Jeanette Head Central Coast

An absolute gem!! Quiet secluded location, extremely clean & spacious cottage (we stayed in the two bedroom Chardonnay cottage), the made to order breakfast, using local produce was nothing short of phenomenal..but most importantly of all the hosts/owners the embodiment of pure country hospitality.

It's hard to go past the Red Door Collective for a romantic stay in the Hunter Valley. Evelyn and Stewart are the consummate hosts - nothing is too much trouble. The adults-only accommodation is stylish and luxurious. The property is spectacular. Excellent inclusive breakfast and barista coffee complete the package. Even the internet is super-fast! Book direct for a free cheese platter and bottle of the delicious RDC wine. We'll be back!

Spent last weekend at the Red Door Collective. This was our 2nd visit, and we are planning another stay before the end of the year. Everything was wonderful. Stewart & Evelyn are the perfect hosts. they are warm & friendly & make you feel like family from the moment you book in. We stayed the in Chardonnay Cottage, which is cosy and inviting. We are so please that we found this perfect getaway spot. We would highly recommend a stay to anyone who is looking for a place to unwind and relax. Maree & Wayne

Our second visit to Red Door Collective and we stayed in the same cottage (Semillon) which is so well equipped and comfortable. A fantastic breakfast is included which makes a great change for self-catering accomodation. Mike and Evelyn make excellent hosts. Their wine is delicious too. It's a great location for exploring all of the Hunter Valley and then coming back and chilling outside watching the sun set over the vines. We'll be going back for a third time for sure!

My boyfriend and I came to the Hunter for my 30th, and there are so many accommodation options to choose from it was hard to decide! I now know we made the absolute best decision possible in choosing the RDC. I can't fault it. From greeting us and adding a lovely touch of birthday balloons in the room, to the best breakfasts I've ever tasted, Stewart and Evelyn made the whole stay our favourite together yet. Plus, Stewart's coffees are as worthy for an award as his wine..! We stayed in the Cabernet Suite- it is the perfect size for two, with a gorgeous spa bath (with bubble bath and salts!) overlooking the grounds, plus a good size comfy bed and amenities like a fridge and coffee pod machine. The best part is sitting on the side deck, feeling the afternoon warmth and watching the sun go down with a bottle of RDC wine! Stewart and Evelyn have excellent local knowledge of the area and gave us some great recommendations. The wine tasting we did with them was also the best I did in the Valley - there's something about a relaxed, personal touch! The beautiful grounds and vineyards are also full of hidden gems- and they're all painted red! We will be returning :) If you find the Red Door Collective on booking or other platforms, call them directly and book with them rather than with a third party :) It cuts out the middle man !

We got engaged while staying here 3 years ago, so Red Door Collective has a special place in our hearts. We truly enjoyed our time here, and we returned recently to pick up some of our favourite wines. Stewart and Evelyn are the most thoughtful and approachable hosts. I couldn't recommend Red Door enough

In the Heart of Hunter Valley, Red Door Collective is a perfect accommodation for a couple getaway from the buzzling city life. You get a warm welcoming from the hosts Stewart and Evelyn when you arrive to reception area. We stayed in the Pinot Suite during Winter which was nice and cozy. The beds were very comfortable and warm even when temperatures dropped to 1'C. From the Suites you could see the Sunrise and Sunset which had magnificent views. Breakfast was delicious, which Evelyn cooked and the chilli relish is so good that we ended purchasing some. Stewart can make a great coffee aswell. RDC do offer wine tastings, which is worth if you get an opportunity to fit it in your agendas. Definitely would visit again when staying in Hunter Valley.

Thank you Stewart and Evelyne for you warm welcome. The suites are very elegantly decorated in a contemporary style. The wine testing with local cheeses is a must as we discovered their delicious wines. The cherry on the cake is Evelyne’s cooking. Don’t miss having diner there, you will not be disappointed. Overall we would 100% recommend this place if you want peaceful beautiful countryside, spacious elegant accommodation, great wine and food and lovely hosts.
