“Unforgettable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

I found the staff extremely kind, friendly and helpful. The resort itself was absolutely lovely. We had the most relaxing time for a long time. We have been to lots of places here in Australia and abroad. However, we never felt more relaxed. I would most certainly recommend the Hunter Valley Resort to anyone who wants to head that way.

During our trip in Sydney, we stay a night here and it is definely too short for us. This place is awesome. Friendly and helpful staffs and always give a clear and great advise on packages offered. We took onsite vineyard tour followed by wine and gain lots of knowledge about wine! It is sad to know that they can't harvest this year due to bad weather.

Tranquil and serene environment good for relaxing. A great place away from city life. Room was spacious and clean. Aside, I super love the soft and fluffy duvet.

Lastly, best dinner I had in Sydney. I miss food at San Martino already !!

Rooms are spacious enough and have the basic amenities, but are overpriced for what you get - a dated, no-frills experience. We stayed over Easter weekend for a night before a wedding nearby. My traveling companion staying in another room pre-ordered breakfast at check-in time for a few bucks cheaper, as did I. When we fronted up for breakfast the next morning, my room was on the list, hers was not. When my friend suggested to the young lady at the restaurant there must be some mistake, she was advised that if she didn't hadn't booked breakfast the day before she would have to pay full price now. A nasty argument ensued, and the staff were very rude to my friend who ended up going without breakfast. Good for her in the end as the breakfast was very poor - undercooked bacon, overcooked egg, self-serve coffee from a mixer machine. Set us all off on the wrong foot for the wedding day. Would not recommended this place. Bad vibe.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. It is really annoying when the system does not work, and it spoils all the other good things we do. We have steamlined our breakfast procedures so that errors of who has breakfast included, and those on a room only package is clearer. Again, thank you for highlighting this...
