  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Clean facility - provisions included were very generour. Scenery from the veranda was amazing. The horses were friendly & the kangaroos were awesome. The whole weekend was made special by the peace and tranquility of the cabin. The setting was beautiful and we would definitely book this cabin again. Look forward to our next stay there.

Most disappointing, beds were dreadful, half a roll of toilet paper for 4 adults, BBQ was filthy nothing to clean it with,nothing to light outdoor fire with, toilet blocked wonderful with 4 adults, and to top it off the walls are paper thin can hear any and everything, even when someone is tinkling in the toilet, all in all most unpleasant.

Pros: nothing

Cons: everything

Stayed in the cottage, 4 adults and one puppy - we had a great time using this as our base as we explored the Hunter Valley. Bonus that we got to bring our puppy with us, he loved the horses and other dogs. The cottage itself is simple and cosy but comfortable and a good size for 4 adults.
