Comfortable spacious room, immaculate bathroom, delicious freshly prepared breakfast, solicitous host -- what more do you want? Lots of nice touches: umbrellas on hand so you don't get wet if it rains when you're walking to the guest lounge, where the breakfasts are served; cheese plate in the fridge together with a bottle of the local wine; even chocolates in...

Perfect place for a lovely getaway! Donna made us feel really welcome and it felt like a home away from home. She was really accomodating and was able to suggest great places to eat and things to do. The room was beautiful and the breakfasts were delicious. We will definitely be back!

We stayed for 2 nights at Thistle Hill in order to visit the wineries. Donna is an very enthusiastic, welcoming host who made us feel so at home. The breakfast was great, the room comfortable, quiet and clean. We enjoyed a fantastic pizza cooked by our host on the evening we did our wine tour as we didn't want to...

Highly rated TripAdvisor venue in the Hunter Valley NSW – having won many awards with them – hence our booking. A peaceful, secluded Australian Country Homestead greets us as we drive up the winding approach from Hermitage Drive to this tranquil location. Ample parking under the gums, and short walk to the venue. We were greeted by a most enthusiastic...

We spent two nights here around a balloon trip for our wedding anniversary. The room was lovely, the location quiet and the owners very welcoming. It is well off the road so you feel you are truly in the countryside. The breakfast was excellent. Would be good in either summer (as it has a pool) or winter with airconditioning in...

We stayed for a very brief overnight visit this week on our way home to Brisbane having heard that the Hunter Valley is amazing. We were lucky to find Thistle Hill last minute and super happy with our choice! Donna (and Emilè & Socks) were the friendliest hosts. Donna sent us on our way with a map and directions to...

We spent a weekend here for my in-law's 50th anniversary. We had 4 rooms between the 7 of us. The rooms were cosy and had nice bathrooms. The welcome bottle of local semillion and cheeses platter for each room was a nice touch. Also nice was the decanter of sticky wine and the chocolate brownies on the condition day. Breakfast...

Stayed at Thistle Hill for two nights, booked four rooms for a family celebration. Unfortunately hosts Donna and Stuart had been unexpectedly called away leaving the guest house in the capable hands of Kandy and Dennis. Donna had organised our special needs and all information had been carefully passed onto the new hosts. She had made bookings at nearby restaurants,...

We had a wedding anniversary weekend away at this beautiful guest house tucked away off the main road surrounded by beautiful countryside in the delicious Hunter Valley. The gardens are clearly somebody's pride and joy. White rose bushes are abundant and although we visited in winter, it must be a magnificent sensual pleasure when they flower. Our room was stylishly...
