“Kangaroos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

Pulled back the curtains when we woke up to see Kangaroo and baby eating right outside our room...

This place is our Hunter Valley favourite. Beds are simply amazing! Best sleep ever.

We stayed here for one night during a week long drive from Sydney to Brisbane. Were able to check straight in when we arrived early. We didn't spend much time in the room, but it had everything we needed, including lovely views. We got a free theatre show and wine tasting with the stay, which was very nice, and we came away with a few bottles of lovely wine. We had a really nice lunch, and a couple of Blue Tongue beers out in the sunshine followed by a walk through the vineyards. Would have loved to have stayed for longer.

I booked the Hunter Room for a 2 night stay through groupon at the Hunter Valley Resort. After hearing the great reviews, my wife and I were looking forward to our stay here while in the region for a wedding. Unfortunately the Resort was unhelpful when it came to the booking. The weekend was not in school holidays or on a holiday long weekend either. I could not see why it was available one weekend and not the other. I was also not given a valid reason for this refusal. As my wife and I were keen to stay at the Resort that weekend, so I offered to pay any additional costs not covered by the voucher. This also was flatly refused. I cannot understand why they would refuse a customer who was willing to pay extra to stay at their resort.

We are so sorry we were not able to assist you with the dates for the wedding you have been invited to. We only have the 35 rooms, and short of cancelling another booking, we just could not fit you in. However, if you would like to go onto our waitlist, if there is a cancellation, we could then let you know. Please call us back on 49987777 if you wish to go onto this waitlist. Kind regards

We really enjoyed our stay in the Hunter Valley Resort, it was made all the better by Wayne who we meet when we visited the cellar door, he really knew his stuff and had a very good sence of humour. But be warned we went in looking for 1 bottle of wine and came out with 6!!!! all really nice wines and there was no hard sell they just tasted to good not to buy. We ate in the restaurant on site and had a really lovelly meal with excellent service, they are fully licensed but you can take your own wine with if you would rather.

Definitely recommend choosing the Hunter Valley Resort for a weekend in the Hunter.

My boyfriend and I spent a long weekend there in October 2010. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant by the resort was really nice and the resort is very close to most wineries. The room was clean and with all the amenities. My highlight was the bed: they had the best king bed we have ever slept on. We liked the bed so much that, after more than 1 year, we still remembered it and we asked the owner to let us know the brand to buy the same one for our apartment!
