Such a beautiful place to stay. I would recommend Sovereign Hill to anyone. The lodge sits on top of the hill overlooking the vines and you get the most amazing view of your surroundings, especially the sun setting over the mountains to top off each day. I'm loving the new pool area they have, it's great heading down to after... More

It was an ideal location to stay with a group of friends. The communal kitchen and out door area was great for everyone to catch up and eat together. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The location of Sovereign Hill is close by to all the local attractions in the Hunter Valley.

Great property for a group or family group stay. People enjoy their own private motel rooms with a communal kitchen and living area. The pool and tennis courts give plenty of activities while the grounds are gardens are perfect for relaxing in. Hosts were friendly and very helpful.

The accommodation is set up to enjoy and relax. Pool is great. Tennis Court is fabulous. The view from our cabin is superb. The owners Ken and Sharon made our visit definitely worth the drive from Sydney. My husband and I have been visiting Sovereign Hill for quite a few years now and will continue to go there.
