Beautiful rural retreat close to all the best wineries in the hunter! Dog friendly rooms and nice pool onsite. Fabulous views and very tranquil if looking for some peace and quiet. Nice touches like candles and music playing in room when we arrived. Little kitchenette which was handy and breakfast provisions were delicious especially the banana bread. Would highly recommend tonic over the big resorts as more personal and adults only too. Wonderful hosts too who are on site if any issues arise during the stay.

My partner and I had such an amazing time celebrating our anniversary in the Hunter Valley. The property is absolutely gorgeous, with picturesque views and is in close proximity to wineries. Right from the start the service was impeccable and the in-room massages were divine. So looking forward to staying here again in the future.

Great place to stay.
Great location. Nice apartments. owners were really nice and accommodating. Allowed us to check in early and did inform us in advance that the common area was being worked on. Apartment was really nice and well kept. Really nice bath(room) with bath salts and bubble bath on tap, which was a really nice addition. Bed was super comfy. Good stay but probably not 5*. Bird poo on balcony was a bit annoying and common area deck being worked on when we arrived was inconvenient. It was a really relaxing stay and I don’t know if there is a better set of views in the Hunter.

Quiet location, clean and comfy but it is going to be better if there is a cook top and bigger kitchen.
