The Carriages stay was just what my wife n I needed, a log fire, luxury bed and home comforts. The property offers relaxation and a swimming pool/tennis court. Highly recommend in such a convenient spot to the Hunter Winery region. Thanks for a lovely stay

The bed was awful. So hard it was like sleeping on the floor. The couch is also very saggy. The bathroom was old.
