STUNNING HUNTER VALLEY RESORT So close to Sydney yet truly a world away, the Hunter Valley is the birthplace of Australian wine with over 150 premium wine producers holding a very special place in the global wine industry. Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort is located in Central Pokolbin neighbored by the vineyards of Brokenwood, Tamburlaine, Pokolbin Estate, Audrey Wilkinson, Roche Estate (formerly known as Tempus Two) and Hunter Valley Gardens. The iconic 300 acre resort includes a golf & country club, two restaurants, two bars, three pools, two tennis courts and a wide variety of self-contained accommodation. The thoughtfully appointed one, two and three bedroom villas are set against a stunning backdrop of the rolling golf greens and spectacular Broken Back Mountain Range. Unique event venues, activities, team building, support services and arguably the best service delivery in the region highlight the resorts' position as New South Wales' meeting and event destination of choice.

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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It’s old, it’s tired and it’s dirty and to make matters worse, no one cares. You’re met at reception with staff trying to talk you out of room service in exchange for a $10 bar tab. Stay 5 days and you quickly understand why, one day you get room service the next they don’t turn up, they deliver fresh towels one day and none the next, make the bed then don’t do it. After a week there I have no idea what room service is. The room is dirty, there was a hole in the wall about fist size that had been plastered up but not painted, the grout in the shower was all black, door handles replace with smaller one and the marks from the older still there and the cabinet the TV is in is all wrong and blocked the remote working. In the main building area the pebble concrete is black with lichen that needed pressure cleaning years ago and if you look up when it’s raining the gutters have rusted holes through them from not being cleaned and water pours out into the main entrance. The food, oh I wish Gordon Ramsay would drop by. When they don’t offer a half-n-half pizza you know it’s coming from a packet and what arrives is a gluggy mess under cooked dripping with oily supermarket cheese. The food is bland and just ‘pub’ food done badly so don’t plan any romantic dinners. The staff, oh well let’s keep going, they are young, many seem backpacker types, French and they like their own company way more than the annoying customers they look after Great golf course, just horrible surroundings.

Had an amazing time soaking up the tranquility of the area. Enjoyed the 5min walk from my room to the main facilities and the staff were all super friendly and couldn't be more helpful. Absolutely loved the dining experience at Oaks & Vine - the food was sensational!

Property is great but needs tightening up in a few places. Dining area dirty (don’t look up to ceilings). Bottle store onsite, staff admitted they make up prices. Drink taken from our room by cleaning staff and no offer for reimbursement. Staff seem a bit lacking in customer relations, seems not managed well. Location of the place is brilliant and rooms were really good. This could be a fantastic place, just needs a bit of focus from management

Embracing a picturesque location, my time at Oaks Cypress was filled with moments of wonder and delight, particularly during our enchanting dinner experience at Dinner Oak Vine. The culinary journey offered exquisite flavors and personalized attention, truly the highlight of our stay. However, while the surroundings were enchanting, the accommodations left something to be desired. The pool area, while promising relaxation, was in need of some TLC, with debris and broken tiles marring the experience. Similarly, the jacuzzi, though inviting, could benefit from a bit of maintenance and cleaning. Inside, the rooms lacked the fresh touch we had hoped for, with a coat of paint long overdue. The kitchen facilities, while functional, could use a bit of love and attention. Despite these shortcomings, the warmth of the staff and the charm of the location made our stay memorable. With a few improvements, Oaks Cypress has the potential to truly shine as a haven of relaxation and indulgence.

We only stayed one night at this hotel but wish it could have been more. The staff, pool, restaurant, and unit accommodations were top-notch. It's excellent value for the money. Highly recommend this resort.

First time staying at Cypress Lakes and impressed with the accommodation. Spotlessly clean and well presented with comfy bed and pillows and quiet environment made for a relaxing stay. We booked in at the Bistro for dinner and were picked up at our Villa and taken home after dinner by the complementary service shuttle bus provided for Cypress Lakes guests to the Restsurant. Relaxed and friendly dinner experience and meals just the best. Plenty of other activities at the resort besides golfing. Would highly recommend staying at the Oaks Cypress Lakes whether golfing or not if you want a relaxing time away from home. Will happily return and is great value for money with friendly and courteous staff.

The room we stayed in had plenty of issues. The handle came off one of the sliding doors to the bathroom when we first got there. There was an odour which we found was from a pipe sticking out of the cupboard next to the kitchen area. The wi-fi didn't reach our room. TV kept dropping out to a blue screen like there was a loose connection somewhere. Apart from the room, the experience there was quite nice. Staff are friendly. Waking up to the birds and bushland is quite nice. We only went to the restaurant area once but that was quite nice as well.

1) Arrived at the location when we were advised previously by phone that our reservation days couldn't be altered. Upon arrival, I was advised they didn't have a booking for us. In fact, the days had been changed to what we had hoped for. Luckily there were spare villa's available. 2) The room keys wouldn't work & it took over 20 minutes to issue new keys, whilst we were waiting outside of our villa in 35 degree heat.

The trip was a birthday celebration. In general we found the hotel run down from our initial room to pool to tennis court to breakfast. The setting is magnificent and could offer so much more. The only reason to go back was to play golf.
