Very cozy and comfortable. Would highly recommend it and would definitely stay here again.
Jennefer, au2 night trip
Good 6.0
The location was excellent but furnishings and bathroom was quite dated. Television seemed new. We could make our own coffee and tea and could have made a light meal if we wanted. Everything was clean and people very nice and helpful who owned the property. Signage indicated it was a farmstay.
Renee, au2 night trip
Fair 4.0
Very Average
Nice room, but the service is not good. A lot of rules, its like visit your grandmother place, a lot of nagging in the room that dont make you feel welcome: if you use something in the kitchen and don’t wash you will bill at $20, there are 2 beds but if you use another one you will be bill another rate... and etc... Under the bed was not clean, I found empty bottle of water.

Our new go-to accommodation in the Hunter
Newer building that was very well equipped and well maintained. Fabulous location overlooking fields and dam, with serenity being a good description. Unexpectedly good experience and great value

Savreen, au2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Ok stay
Our welcome was very disappointing walking into a stale hot room, as the aircon was left off on a 45 degree day. And the aircon was an older unit that took about 5 hours to cool the room. The room is dated but reasonably clean. It was nice to have a kitchenette to have wine and cheese in the room. The TV was petite, around 38cm and positioned far away from the bed and couch. Overall the room was ok but I wouldn't advise staying in summer
Corinne, au2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Nice quiet place for a break.
Nice place to stay at and handy to the local wineries. Magnificent local eateries and gourmet shops; not cheap.
