My friend and I travelled up from Sydney to go to the Alicia Keys/John Legend concert. We stayed at Hunter Country Lodge Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night on Dec 13,14,15. The accommodation was lovely, perfect for our weekend getaway. We didn't spend too much time in the rooms as we were out exploring the Hunter, but the bed was...

The location is great, dinner was good but pricey, breakfast was poor. The rooms are dated and need maintenance. More cheap motel than country lodge and many things needed painting or fixing. Same could be said about the pool area and the marquee. So call it what it is and price it appropriately. About half the current rate would be...

My partner and I researched on nice affordable accommodation for a romantic weekend in the hunter. We where very disappointed to say the least, the rooms and establishment where nothing like what was advertised on their website. We went to open our cabin and the door handle nearly fell off. Walking inside the room we noticed it was neither clean...

We travelled from Sydney to attend the Leonard Cohen concert held in the Hunter Valley on November 23, 2013 (fabulous!). We stayed for 2 nights at the Hunter Country Lodge. We were a little concerned because the reviews for this Lodge were very mixed and overall it was near the bottom of the accommodation pecking order. Presumably reviews are about...

We were very unsure when we booked this place but it was one of the only affordable places that allows you to stay for just 1 night on the weekend! The 2 night rule annoys me somewhat as most times I do not have time to take off work or to travel after work on a Friday... so thumbs up...

I was a single female traveling thru the hunter on my own so thought the seclusion would feel safe , when I was given my room key it was just on dark and had to park behind the room on dirt and walk a distance to my room with a poorly lit verandah . The room was ok size but...

Do not take anyone here if you are aiming to impress them. This place has dirt everywhere you look. Rotten floorboards at the entrance came as a bit of a shock given that the cost of a room here is 180 dollars. The hotel room is open to the outside with a verandah entry that is in need of urgent...

The Lodge is at the Branxton end of the Hunter. It's poorly sign posted and easily missed. We were attending "a day on the green" weekend concert (highly recommended) at Bimbadgen Estate so the far end of the Hunter suited our needs. On arrival, there was no record of our reservation?. Not a good start, but to make matters worse,...

A bit expensive for the dated rooms with stained carpets and loads of spider webs outside. But the bed was good quality and the linen clean, so we got a good nights sleep until the Kookaburras woke us. The people who ran the place were charming and nothing was too much trouble. Signage could be a little larger, nearly drove...
