#2 of 8 B&Bs / Inns in Pokolbin
We think you’re going to love this place. It’s a boutique hotel with just 10 beautifully appointed en-suite rooms brimming with vintage charm and set on an award-winning vineyard. In winter curl up on a sofa next to a real log-fire with a glass of wine. On warm days wander through French doors to sit out on the wide veranda overlooking the garden, dip into the salt-water pool, or play tennis. Sleep in the finest fresh white sheets and wake up to a seasonal breakfast basket at your door. It’s an enchanting retreat at the end of a famous little road. It’s just a short stroll to the local café and Circa 1876 restaurant. Legendary vineyards, wineries, an amazing range of restaurants, cheese and chocolate shops, world class golf courses, and the spectacular Hunter Valley Gardens, are all close by… plus Carriages Boutique Wines are on site for your drinking pleasure. COME AND STAY.

Amidst the uncertainty of COVID we traveled from Bowral in the Southern Highlands to spend a relaxing weekend in the Hunter. Staying in a veranda suite featuring a huge Smart TV, supper comfortable bed and breakfast delivered to our door in a picnic basket. The room is spacious and the veranda is a wonderful addition allowing a relaxing choice. Highly recommended and we will be returning.

Always great to be met with a friendly smile and both our hosts picked this up and ran with it. The hotel itself is a quaint, country style cottage and seperate carriage house;split into several generous sized rooms. Our room was spotlessly clean, and though the period wooden style windows and doors were a little draughty(especially visiting toward the end of autumn for an exceptionally wet start to the weekend), there was ample bedding available as well as a split system heating/air conditioning unit that assured the room remained comfortable both day and night. In addition, breakfast servings were generous and are delivered to your door, fresh each morning. The carriages provides great value for money in comparison to its competitors and would definitely see us return as repeat custom.

My family and I stayed here for my wedding next door. Extremely disappointed with our entire experience. There was a miss-communication with our room allocations which was handled very poorly and unprofessionally. We were approached on the balcony by the owners in an overly aggressive and rude manor which could have otherwise be handled in an entirely different and professional manor. No hot water in our cottage the first night and the cleaners came into our room 30min before our checkout time. No privacy, the owners came over various times throughout our stay including their dog walking around the kitchen whilst my bridal party ate and got ready. I left in tears and extremely upset to what should otherwise be a happy day as a newly married couple.

We had a lovely restful night at Carriages. We booked room 7 upstairs with own little balcony overlooking the garden which was lovely and quiet and a great place for a drink or to read. We had a dip in the pool to cool off - again very relaxing. A lovely breakfast basket appeared at our door around 8am - such a nice touch - the bed was comfy with good quality linen - all in all a wonderful stay and highly recommended. Thank you ☺️

From the moment we met our hosts, Nerina and Alistair, they made us feel very welcome! Our accommodation was perfect for us! Lots of leisurely time spent on the wide verandah looking out over the property. Its centrally located in the heart of Pokolbin but in a lovely quiet area. Close to all the wineries and attractions of the area. Each morning a delicious breakfast basket was delivered to our room. Thoroughly recommend The Carriages and will definitely go back! Thank you for a lovely 6 days!
