    Beautiful and well-maintained surroundings, peaceful place but at the same time close to one of the best wineries and restaurants. The breakfast was delicious and generous. The owner, Jo, was lovely and friendly and bakes the best croissants we have ever tried. Overall, a good place to stay in the heart of Hunter Valley

    Worthy of a 10

    The previous 10 out of 10 ratings says it All. Very warm greeting from my last minute booking. Upon arrival greeted with a Smile that didn't disappear from Donna's face. Nice, clean perfectly sized room. Plenty of recommendations for meals, wine tasting to just about anything & everything. And then there was a Special treat one morning for breakfast..? Loved the mushrooms is all I'll say, OH Yeh & we will be back. Thank you

    Would stay again. Highly recommended.

    Incredible stay. Owner Donna and Stuart are full of energy and dedicated to ensuring all guests have a wonderful stay. Beautiful French Provincial feel, lovely grounds, warm hospitality. Good location too. I now know why the reviews are amazing. Lots of little generous touches, like wine/cheese platter, surprise brownies, and fresh roses by the bedside. Although there are plenty of places to stay in the Hunter, I'd absolutely stay here again, and would recommend to family.

    Thistle Hill is a beautiful place to stay in the Hunter and conveniently located amongst wineries and restaurants. Donna's hospitality couldn't be faulted and her little extra touches were much appreciated. We will definitely be back!

    Excellent and cozy accommodation with very warm & welcoming hosts. Especially liked the muscat, cheese plate and bottle of wine in the fridge with bottled water as part of the stay. Highly recommended and close to everything in the Hunter Valley!
