The kookaburra was a great place to stay on our weekend introducing my parents to the hunter valley on their first visit to australia. We all appreciated the peace and quiet, being able to watch the sunset over the beautiful and serene countryside, if you are being pedantic you can hear cars shoosh by but nothing like in the city...

Over the long weekend a friend and I had a joint Birthday party where 10 of our closest friends got together and went on a karaoke wine tour of the Hunter Valley. While I would NOT recommend the Happy Cabby Karaoke tour that we went on. I would totally recommend the accommodation we stayed in over two nights. 10 of...

We booked The Homestead with extremely short notice (a matter of hours!) Linda could not have been more helpful. My husband flew in with a work colleague from overseas late Friday night. The house was ready and waiting for them. I arrived with our two children a day later. The house is a fairly new build and is HUGE! 4...

Reasonable price for a long weekend in hunter valley. Cosy and comfortable with all kitchen utensil, cutlery clean and ready so we could prepare our own meal without spending extra outside. Nice spa for relaxing. Pity that not all our family member could show up and enjoy so we could not enjoy fully and didn't realize that we should not...

We stayed at The Australiana cottage. It has two bedrooms downstairs and a loft area with two beds (upstairs). It is great budget accomodation with a budget price for our midweek stay. We very much enjoyed the peace and quiet and were not disturbed by other guests. It is very much an older Australian (Farm/Country) Cottage. However, It is well...

We stayed in the Kookubarra Cottage over the April school holidays for two nights and could not have been happier. The place was clean & cosy, especially the spa, and so lovely and peacerful. Everything we needed was in the cottage, enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the kangaroos & taking in the peace &...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our Kookaburra Cottage. We appreciate your kind comments about the cleanliness of the cottage. It is certainly situated in a quiet spot, and as you say "you weren't surrounded by people". We look forward to having you back here so you can relax on that balcony with your glass...

My husband and I stayed at Kookaburra just before the Easter holidays. while on the whole there isnt much to complain about, I wouldnt exactly rave about the place either. It's a nice location, peaceful and quiet. Beautiful scenery. We got to see some kangaroos in the evening. The cottoages itself have all the facilities you need - toaster, stove,...

Thank you for taking the time to post this review of our Kookaburra Cottage here at Madigan Vineyard. The location, peacefulness, scenery (including the kangaroos) are always popular with our guests. I appreciate your kind comments about the service - I always try to make check-in as seamless as possible. I went to take a look at the 'missing' door...

It is a good and nice place. It is bit old (dated) and need bit renovations. We went on easter break, it was expensive during that time. But I guess in general it is worth for the money. No restaurant :(, but a beautiful view. Can see kangaroos/wallabies during sunset. Got a small size spa inside the cottage. Can suggest...

Thank you for review of our cottage - I'm assuming that you stayed in The Kookaburra Cottage as it has a 2 person spa bath. This cottage is a favourite with our couples; cosy and in a fantastic spot to take in the views and the local fauna, especially at sunset. Madigan Vineyard is centrally located so within 5 minutes...

The vineyard is for sale and the cottage we rented was showing its age and lack of care: I wouldn't say it was dirty but it is not easy to keep a place clean when so many furnishings are out of date. Sharon who looked after the estate was very helpful and gave out a lot of useful information. There...

Upon arriving we realized straight away that this cottage was value for money when placed in comparison with what you could easily pay for "other" accommodation in Hunter. The cottages have everything you need just like a hotel except for milk for your coffee or tea, (so bring your own) Just remember, you're in "wine country" so the first thing...

“From what I have read of the reviews, the other rooms seem to be better, so I would choose anything other than the Kookaburra cottage”
