Although this place may not be the most luxurious place to stay, it has many things going for it. Yes, the rooms are basic but when it is as hot as it was when we were there you don't really need much else. The bed was very comfortable, always a good thing. The family running the hotel are very pleasant and particularly helpful. What we really liked was the rural setting, with vineyards and woodland directly outside the rooms. Being on a working farm/vineyard was a big plus for us. it was well placed to go exploring the Hunter Valley and we couldn't really have asked for more. The best thing of all, though, was Shakey Tables restaurant, not to mention Shakey Tables wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights there.
