To stay in a historic railway carriage was a very interesting experience. Unfortunately we were not able to book the Royal carriage pictured, but stayed in the Victoria carriage. Next time I will hang out for the Royal, it is beautiful. These are probably not for everyone, as they are quite rustic, quirky and you are in the country! Marie...

We had a group of 8 people staying in the Victorian Carriages for a friends 30th and had a wonderful time. Beds were super comfy and despite it being cold out at night, we were incredibly warm when in bed. There was enough space to fit us all comfortably and a huge veranda outside the carriage for us to sit...

I stayed with a group of friends over the weekend for the Red Hot Summer Tour (late March). We booked out the Orient (sleeps 4) and the Victorian (sleeps 8). Both carriages are so so cute and quirky, we loved it! The Orient had 2 double rooms that were very spacious. The Victorian has one large bedroom with a double,...

This is a fun place to stay with a group, with our carriage the Victorian sleeping up to 8. Within walking distance of the concert venue and a few minutes to Hunter Gardens, restaurants and vineyards. See amongst trees with the right weather this would be fabulous.

Lovely group booked through their friend however, he did not pass on the information that it was self catering, shame if I had known they needed something I would have supplied it. Not sure why cleaner didn't give teatowels , I am onsite for the weekend to fix these things and they had a very wet weekend. The double bed...

From the very moment that I contacted Marie about her accommodation she was helpful and went out of her way to accommodate me. Six of us stayed in the Victorian carriage for 2 nights for the Bruce Springsteen concert. We had such a great time. The carriage was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed for a lovely weekend. Marie...

We stayed 2 nights in Marie's Royal Train while visiting Hunter Valley. The interior has been lovingly renovated in beautiful rose wood and using genuine railway fittings. The bed was really comfy with crisp sheets. The whole effect is one of antique charm. The carriage is in a rural setting in a wooded context with bordering fields. In the late...

What a fabrication . Wow I knew from the outset that these guests did not like the carriage but to make up this about cleanliness is so disturbing. ALL MY LINEN GOES TO A LINEN SERVICE .They bought a dog with them and if there was dog hair it came from their own dog. The Victorian was checked for any...

Stayed one night in the Victorian train carriage accomodation with 6 other friends and loved it! The carriage was beautiful and fun to stay in and accommodated all of us comfortably.

Admittedly, I did see some mixed reviews on here which made me a little nervous... But as soon as I arrived I was greeted by a very friendly Maria and her two tiny puppies (don't understand how anyone could have a problem with them.. They are super friendly greeters). The orient train carriage stay was a surprise for my sisters...

Lovely girls thanks. We do have highly polished walls and the carriage is housekeeped on day of entry so should not have been any dust, however if the .mower has been around the carriage when we open them up it can create dust. Yes fully self catering, we do this to keep the costs down

We stayed 3 nights and had an awesome experience. Our carriage was clean, cosy and comfortable. Had everything we needed. Marie (our host) was more than accommodating. Even lending me her riding boots to go to the very muddy concert! Couldn't fault our stay. Will definitely go back.
