Highly Recommended
Our family of 30 gathered recently for our mother's 80th in this wonderful venue. The house was clean, comfortable with touches of luxury and had a fantastic commercial kitchen so self-catering was easy. Every bedroom had an ensuite so the family could have privacy when needed or congregate and party.

A great venue for any family event including your wedding.
We held our wedding at Willow Tree Estate and couldn’t be happier with our choice. The place is absolutely amazing. The rooms are big, luxurious and super comfortable. The house is equipped with everything necessary to cater an event such as a wedding. James and Natalie were delightful to deal with throughout the planning process. They were always helpful with our requests and questions, and they tried really hard to make it easy and stress free for us. We can not recommend this place highly enough.

Intimate wedding venue
I had my wedding here, and can not fault it. It was spotless and beautifully decorated and offered everything we needed for our guests and for a private experience for us as well. If you are looking for an intimate wedding venue, especially if you want your guests to be able to stay with you, I highly recommend Willow Tree. The views are stunning and the owners are extremely friendly and accommodating as well.

We spent a fantastic weekend with 10 couples in this glorious home. Natalie was helpful and thoughtful. I highly recommend Willow Tree for accommodation with a large group. The home is luxurious and no expensive spared on furnishings. Money well spent. Thank you

Corporate Weekend Getaway
Our team and I had a fantastic time staying in this very spacious and tranquil estate. We had ample amount of room for 16 guests. Even with the sheer size of the place, it still feels very homely. Great location too, we walked to Matilda Bay Brewhouse for lunch and plenty of vineyards to choose nearby. We saw a family of Kangaroo hopping around the estate. Thank you to the team at Willow Tree for assisting us with organising the weekend. We highly recommend it for anyone looking for accommodation in The Hunter Valley.

The perfect location, accommodation and getaway home
Willow Tree Estate was the perfect location and accomodation home for our family and friends to stay for our wedding. It’s been an absolute pleasure to have stayed here. Each and everyone of our guests loved our stay. We honestly cannot fault our experience with Willow Tree Estate. From the ease of booking, quick to respond hosts, seamless check in and check out. The entire estate was just beautiful! Spacious, backdrop breathtaking location. Super comfortable furniture and very well maintained and clean facilities. Willow Tree Estate thank you for hosting the perfect getaway for us. We were sad that our stay had to come to an end. Thank you enough for allowing us to stay at your gorgeous property.

Have never been treated like this ever.
We are a group of young professionals that have often stayed at short stay properties but we have never been treated like this. At the end of our stay, despite us having cleaned for several hours prior, the property being left in a good state of cleanliness with no damage and us being almost ready to leave, a team of five staff from management and their four cleaning staff came in and started rudely accusing my guests and I of leaving the property in a bad state and that this was a major problem as they have another group of guests coming shortly. I was told that I must pay for extra cleaning charges for the "worst condition even seen", yet when I asked for clarification as to what the issues were, the owner was not able to provide any example and said "well, just, everything". This was an incredulous claim given the obviously good condition of the property that we had left being in front of us all, instead we figured that this explanation was false and that this was about stress of the next group coming in so shortly after us. This seemed to explain to me why the owners were treating us so indignantly, despite the fact that we'd paid them a very large rental fee and left the property in good condition and only slightly later after the agreed 11AM check out time due to missing car keys delaying our departure. The next day a charge of over $1000 was made to my card without my prior authorisation. This included 12 hours of "extra cleaning" at $99 per hour which didn't make any sense given the good condition that we left the property in. We were also accused of breaking 20 glasses, which was another claim without basis given that I personally washed the glasses and took out the garbage, and therefore I know that there was no more than two broken glasses. In the next conversation, the only explanation given for the massive cleaning charge that "we had a left a sticky remote control" in one of the rooms, and this justifies four cleaners spending a total of TWENTY FOUR HOURS to clean. Further, they claim that they are entitled to charge $99 per hour for cleaning despite this usuriously high rate not being in any part of the agreed terms and conditions, and representing many multiples of the quotes I attained from other reputable cleaners in the area to do a short stay changeover clean of the property in question. We were happy to pay a reasonable additional charge as we vacated slightly after the agreed 11AM time due to our car keys being misplaced (we left around 12), however, given that we washed and staked all the dishes and glasses, removed garbage and left no damage, there was nothing left for the owners' cleaners to do other than mopping the commercial kitchen floor. We estimated this as being less than 30 minutes work for one person. Instead we were charged 12 hours cleaning at $99 per hour. We understood that another group of guests were due to stay later in that day, however after paying such a rental large fee for the property and leaving the property in good condition, as we always do we when staying in any property, we felt as though we were treated quite poorly and it definitely put a dampener on our stay. Given the unreasonable way that the owners have treated us, we expect the owners to imply that our group of guests were irresponsible with the property. We would suggest that given nothing was damaged and the property was cleaned by us each morning and left in a good state of cleanliness, that this is a claim without any basis. Next time we book a property make sure that we take a full set of entry and exit photos just in case we find another owner like this one trying to blatantly rip people off.

Saxon, let me start by saying that your review has been our only negative review since purchasing and relaunching Willow Tree Estate two and a half years ago. I would also like to say that when giving a review it should be based on fact and not LIES. I have never had to respond in this way before but you leave me no choice but to be specific. On Saturday afternoon I called you to let you know that we had received a noise complaint about your group playing loud music until 4.30am. It was during this call that I reconfirmed your checkout time on Sunday as 11am. You agreed. The cleaning team arrived at 11am to find the house still occupied and far from being vacated. You invited them in and they started with the upstairs bedrooms. There were still members of your group showering in these rooms at 11.20am. I arrived with my wife and daughters (far from “five staff from management”) at 11.30am. What we found was indeed the “worst condition ever seen”. The kitchen was a mess. There was food left out on the benches including oyster shells, prawns and what seemed to be half a fillet of beef. I assume from the previous night. Plates and Glasses were NOT washed. Fridges were still full of half consumed food. There was a saucepan with an inch of hardened toffee in the bottom of it put back on the shelf. There was even food left in the microwave. I then told you there would be an additional cleaning fee which you acknowledged and offered to pay cash. I refused to accept payment in that form and said that it would be charged to the credit card provided by you as bond. You agreed. It was at this point that members of your group started wrapping up the food and packing it in their cars along with their luggage. Your group left just before 12.15pm with you leaving last at 12.25pm. I left soon after leaving it with the four members of the cleaning team. The property takes four cleaners approximately 3.5 hours to clean after a responsible group has vacated. This would have been completed by 2.30pm allowing plenty of time before the next groups arrival at 3.00pm. They could not check in until 5pm and I redirected them to have a couple of drinks at a local bar AT MY COST. After establishing the extra charge’s, I sent you an email outlining them including 2.5 hours extra cleaning at double time and a half (the cleaning contractors rate on a SUNDAY), the recharge of a used fire extinguisher (not sure why it was used) and a charge for 15 glasses (there were 19 missing but thought charging for 15 only represented fair wear and tear). I then forwarded you a copy of the cleaning company’s invoice for your information to show transparency and not “blatantly ripping you off” as you accuse us of. On this, I would be interested to see the quotes from “other reputable cleaners in the area” as nobody has contacted us. Saxon, in our two and a half years of operation your group is the first to be charged with excess cleaning fees. Saxon, there were many other disappointing things that the cleaners had to attend to that they would not normally be exposed to including red wine spilt all over an upstairs doorway and wall, vomit over the floor and a bench in one of the bathrooms. I even had to replace a broken toilet seat in an upstairs bathroom. Saxon, you and I both know the condition you left our property in and I’m disappointed that you have been misleading and inaccurate in your review. James – Owner Willow Tree Estate

Amazing!
We stayed at Willow Tree Estate for our Wedding Weekend. In total we had 15 guests and the house is a perfect size for this. Each room has its own bathroom, which is great for all of us to get ready in and have your own privacy. The kitchen is next level and has everything you could ever want! The house has been furnished to accommodate large groups which is great. The location is private enough but still within a 10min drive to the centre of Hunter Valley. The house also has a lot of wildlife around, so it was a great spot to see wild Kangaroos and enjoy a morning coffee in the fresh air. I highly recommend staying here for large groups of people!
