“Lovely Place!”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Splinters was such a lovely place! The lovely owner was so helpful and knew a lot about the winery's in the area. The cottage was so nice and very clean! I wish we could have stayed longer but I would love to come back and would most definitely stay here again! Very good value for money!!

My partner took me here for my birthday and valentines day for 3 nights and the experience was out of this world. The lovely owner and host Bobby not only suggested the most amazing tours, restaurants and things to do but also made all the bookings for us which really made everything so much easier for a couple who have never been to the hunter before. Not only that, she was available to help with just about anything we needed with no hesitation at all. Also, the property exceeded all my expectations with a great balance of luxury and simplicity and completely unpretentious. The room was just beautiful with the smallest details being taken care of. Breakfast every morning was an absolute feast, just what was needed for days filled with wine tours. This is a place that we will definitely come back to again and would recommend anyone to stay there if they can. We simply could not fault a thing.

We stayed recently for 2 nights & it was lovely!
Bobby was a great host, who has a wealth of knowledge regarding the area.
We were treated to warm, straight form the oven, custard tarts, which were delicious with our afternoon coffee!
The room was clean & the bed was very comfy!
Breakfast was exactly what we love, fresh fruit, yoghurt, juice & coffee/tea.

Our stay in one word....perfect!

My husband and I from Wellington NZ booked in at Splinters B&B for 3 nights to celebrate our 2nd Wedding Anniversary.

As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Bobby who showed us to our lovely king ensuite room. The room was lovely and was equipped with everything we needed and had one of the most comfortable beds we've slept on! The grounds are also lovely and has a great pool, a practice golf hole (which my husband loved!) and a massage chair in the lounge! We were treated to cheese and wine when we arrived as well as port and chocolates in our room! Yum!

She then booked us a restaurant (Amanda's) to go to Celebrate our anniversary. Unbeknowst to us she had told them it was our anniversary and when we ordered dessert they bought it out on plates with 'Happy Anniversary' written around the edges in Chocolate! Was such a lovely touch!

The next surprise was the amazing breakfast the next morning. I have a number of dietary requirements and Bobby went out of her way to ensure that I had delicious food that I could eat.

Bobby took such an interest in helping us plan out our holiday including recommending wineries and restaurants to go to. She even provided us with bubble wrap and a box to take all our purchased wine back home in!

All in all it was a fabulous holiday and there's not a thing we could fault! We would definately go back to splinters and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone!

This is a beautiful B and B right in the heart of wine country. Our room was charming, comfortable and quiet, the breakfasts generous and filling, and the hostess gracious and very helpful (She assisted with booking our wine tours, and even made phone calls to help us with booking our next destination.) I haven't a single complaint, and hope to return again some day.
Thank you, Splinters, for a relaxing and romantic escape.
