Fun times
Wonderful large living area/kitchen/fireplace, we had a great stay. The games room was used quite heavily, a very good 8x4 snooker/pool table. Very helpful staff, particularly Paige with any questions and she came back quickly.

Beautiful house for a family trip
Blue Cliff Retreat was absolutely perfect for us, being six people (three couples) looking for a weekend away from Sydney. It is very centrally located in Pokolbin and is close to lots of wineries and restaurants. The house itself is lovely, and very well equipped for six-eight people. It was a great house to cook in because the kitchen is very well equipped with lots of plates, cups, a Nespresso machine, and the little things like foil and salt & pepper which makes the cooking process run so smoothly! The back deck had a great BBQ and a lovely big table, which was perfect for meals and to sit at in the mornings and at dusk and watch the kangaroos come in to drink from the dam. The pool and tennis court are a few minutes walk away, but were lovely. The house is equipped with tennis racquets and balls which was great. There were no swimming towels, which might be a nice addition. Overall, an absolutely beautiful place to stay which I would highly recommend.

Great spot in the middle of the Hunter
We loved our stay at Blue Cliff, the property was clean, well maintained and perfectly sized to spread our group of six out. The process for checking in / out was simple and suited us perfectly.

Quiet and serene location and close to nature yet only 5mins away from the hub of the hunter valley and well away from the bustling crowds.

Lovely ambience.
Great property. From website expected pool and tennis court to be closer but may have misread. Loved all the platters and utensils - made catering very easy. Lovely ambience, so quiet with kangaroos visiting every morning. Very close to all major vineyards. This was a great house for a group of friends and would equally suit families.
