Had a magical girlie weekend here, the service was above and beyond and the staff very friendly. The bed was really comfy and the room very clean. Actually spotted lots of Kangaroos in the gardens. Will come back with my family next time as my children would love the pool and tennis court.

Me and my gf were looking for a nice place to stay In hunter valley and we decide to book this place. Everything looks good, peaceful atmosphere with clean view. I can tell the owner got taste judging from the furnitures inside the room. All things are going great until we realized the phone in the room is not working....

We had a lovely romantic anniversary weekend in the loft suite. Thoroughly enjoyed sampling their red wine and cheese board in front of the open fire. And felt very spoilt having our yummy breakfast basket delivered in the morning. The owners were very friendly and helpful and respected our privacy. Definitely recommend The Carriages for the best quality time out.

Carriages is a lovely tucked away property behind Peppers. We stayed in the Veranda suites on the ground floor. The Veranda is quite wide to accommodate the rooms, and it was possible to hear other people who were on the veranda, but this wasn't a problem for us. The room we stayed in was quite cute, and as it was...

My rating is based purely on value. We stayed here over the Easter holidays after spending a night at Peppers Convent next door. We ended up paying just shy of $300 for the night at Carriages, which was quite a bit more than Peppers Convent. Comparing the two, Carriages, though lovely wasn't the best value, all things considered. The rooms...

Dear kakenn, thank you for your lovely words about our team, the rooms, the setting & service here at Carriages. I am sorry we didn’t get the chance to discuss room rates, as you booked via a third party online site – but the explanation is very simple – like most other hotels Carriages operates different rates for Midweek and...

A large room, basically furnished but clean and a new experience with rooms leading onto a large veranda and garden. Breakfasts served in a basket, totally appropriate for the location and enjoyed by the family. The kids enjoyed walking in the vineyards and exploring the large garden, "playing" tennis on the court and swimming ( a little cold) as well...

We stayed here over a weekend for a wedding nearby. Lovely setting & the room was OK but not as lovely as I'd expected from the photos. I am fussy I know - I stay in lots of hotels for business and have high standards. My gripes were - very little hanging space or hangers, nowhere to put toiletries in...

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Carriages Boutique Hotel for the second time - and we loved every single minute of it. The location, the accommodation, the grounds, the service, the breakfast, the WINE - all perfect. We really couldn't fault a thing (rare) and we'll continue to come back again and again. Definitely one of the prettiest parts...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We think you’re going to love this place. It’s a boutique hotel with 10 rooms, set on an award-winning vineyard. In winter enjoy a roaring log-fire, a squashy sofa, a smooth bottle of wine. On warm days wander through French doors into the garden, dip into the salt-water pool, or play tennis. Sleep in the finest fresh white sheets and wake up to a seasonal breakfast basket at your door. It’s an enchanting retreat at the end of a famous little road. Legendary vineyards, wineries, chef’s hat restaurants, world class golf courses, spectacular Hunter Valley Gardens, chocolate & cheese shops are all close by… plus Carriages Boutique Wines are onsite for your drinking pleasure. COME AND STAY. ... more   less
