Bimbadeen Estate
Reviewed 2 September 2017 via mobile

If you are looking for a beacon of serenity & tranquility on a hilltop, then head to Bimbadeen Estate in the Hunter Valley. On our recent visit in early August, the timing was perfect. Winter was signalling its departure, and ushering in Spring, with a crispness in the air that threw you into indecision on whether or not to take a jumper on your walk in the vineyards. There wasn't a drop of rain that weekend. It was warm in the day but coldish at night, providing the perfect excuse to indulge in a lavender scented hot spa bath then relax by the fireplace, sipping from a selection of Ray's award winning wines.

Your host Ray is the most accommodating and friendly guy you could wish for. You leave the resort feeling you and Ray have been friends for longer than the few days.

The 6 cabins all have spectacular views and are very comfortable and immaculately clean. Ray promotes natural eco friendly products, so the bath selections are beautifully scented lavender extracts.

There is only 1 restaurent about 5 minutes from the estate, but plenty of choices in Cessnock and other Hunter Valley wineries, at least a 15 minute drive away, so book days ahead at the Bistro Molines for any chance to get a table.

So, if you are after a relaxing, quiet getaway to remember, head to Bimbadeen Estate.

Just stayed 2 nights at Bimbadeen Estate with 2 friends in adjoining villa. Very comfortable villa, bedroom on entry level with built in wardrobe, bathroom with rain shower over spa, down 5 stairs to lounge with gas log fire, TV, dining, kitchenette, all you need for a comfortable stay. Breakfast basket supplied & refilled each day. Ray is the host with the most, great sense of humour! The views are amazing, from the sunrise to the Air Balloons. There is a swimming pool, 2 Barbecues. We will definitely return.

Last minute booking for a weekend getaway to relax and because the estate is so high up, the view was just incredible! Ray was really friendly and took us to dinner at the Royal Oak Hotel on the first night, WOW!
From the estate, we were able to be picked up and dropped off for a wine tour, and Bistro Molines was only a short drive away.
The continental basket wasn't for us, but we found 2 beautiful cafes in Pokolbin.
Overall, the stay was amazing we would go back!!!

Room Tip: Room 2: split level, spa, fireplace and a nice view

Went for a weekend away with my partner and it was what we needed. Out of the hassle of the main part of the Hunter Valley but close enough to visit all the standard tourist attractions and wineries. Cost cabin with an open house (ours was gas) with a full length spa bath. Fabulous views. Only downside is for the price I would have thought to include a bottle of the estate's own wine & a small jar of olives would go away long way to bring people back.

The outlook was beautiful. They need to improve the cleaning of the unit. The breakfast basket left a lot to be desired unfortunately. A little bit of T.L.C. would go a long way to improve it. Spa bath was not clean so we did not use it.New comfortable beds would be an improvement. For the price we expected it to be a lot better than it was.
