“Hunter Valley Resort - Comfy and Clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

I stayed at this resort for 5 nights, although in my opinion I wouldn't classify it as a resort, rather more as a motel with a pool. Having said that, it doesn't mean I didnt enjoy myself here, its a very clean place and the team there were very friendly. Located on the grounds is a pub with the popular Blue Tongue Beer found here and the food was good there. The grounds look out onto vineyards and the hills in the distance a nice very for relaxing with some cheese and crackers and a bottle of wine at the back sitting area. The rooms themselves arent very private if you wanted to sit out side however the rooms are comfortable. Accross the road is the Arrowfields Cellardoor and a restaurant and speciailty store, the food any wine from here is a amazing.

We stopped here on our wine tour for lunch and beer & wine tasting. We all had a great time. This review is only for this experience since we didn't stay here overnight. Lunch was good, it came with our tour so I'm not sure what their regular menus has.

The Bluetongue Brewery was fun. A friend got the flight and seemed to enjoy it immensely. It came on this paddle which was fun. And in another area was the Cellar Door wine tasting room with lots of different wines from the area to try.

This is a well situated good value 4 star hotel......we thoroughly enjoyed our 1 night with our 2 young children in a Hunter room....in the middle of hunter valley, on site brewery bar, cafe, higher dining restaurant and cellar door for assorted small winemakers mean you never have to leave to enjoy some of the best of the hunter, however a big advantage in our opinion is that you can also just walk across the road where you have a further bar serving very good tapas and The Mill restaurant plus a dairy shop and further cellar door....all this removes any concerns re drink driving etc whilst still offering a good variety of dining options..... The rooms are perfectly adequate but the pool was freezing! The very helpful lady on reception happily agreed to our request to check out an hour later at 11am.We genuinely wish we could have stayed here for
a few nights more.

Had a fun weekend here with a girldfriend back in October. The staff were more than accomodating and we had a clean comfortable cottage. Loved the nespresso! you must go to the massage centre. Very relaxing. enjoyed the wine tasting at the cellar door and also tried the blue tongue tasting rack. it was great we could walk across to the cheese factory and if you are feeling energetic down the hill to a few of the other wineries. We went to San Martino for dinner and the food was great. Will definately be back and bring the family next time

We made our booking after lunch at the Information Centre and our choice was a really good one. Travelling with our teenage son, we booked a 2 bedroom cabin. The cabin was totally self-contained with wonderful views all around. As soon as we carried the bags in, our son raced off to the tennis court nearby to practise his serve, while we admired the cabin. Each bedroom was spotless and attractive, each with its own en suite. The en suites were generous size, lots of natural light, a basket of toiletries to use and fluffy white towels. The entry verandah opened onto the living area with a kitchenette, comfortable lounges, a TV with good reception.
San Martino Restaurant on site was our choice for evening meal and breakfast. Service was prompt and friendly, surroundings were attractive and the food was really delicious. After breakfast Terry gave us a very informative tour of the winery that is also part of The Hunter Resort. We had enjoyed a wine tasting the afternoon before. There is a boutique cheese shop across the road and other wineries in the area.
I am looking forward to returning and staying longer than this short visit.
