    Donna and Stuart were the most incredibly accommodating hosts of any property I have ever stayed at. The cottage was spacious yet cosy and homely. The little personal touches made our stay so enjoyable and made us feel like we were being greeted by old friends. The location is also only a short drive to all of the hunters best wineries. I would Highly recommend this property to anyone staying in the hunter

    Really nice property with a fantastic host. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely little extras left in our room each day, like home made brownies, cheese plate a bottle of their own wine. There was also lovely extras at breakfast including home made frittatas, fruit comports etc. Will definitely be back & highly recommend.

    We loved everything about out stay at Thistle hill, I had recommended this place to stay to a couple of friends based solely on how lovely everything looked when we dropped a couple off after a wine tour once. Everyone who has stayed raved about it and now I know why. Everything form the little thoughtful touches in the room to the delicious breakfast spread. Everything about this place is perfect, I will be back and will be recommending to everyone.
