      • Disliked: Staff & service

      Very Average

      Nice room, but the service is not good. A lot of rules, its like visit your grandmother place, a lot of nagging in the room that dont make you feel welcome: if you use something in the kitchen and don’t wash you will bill at $20, there are 2 beds but if you use another one you will be bill another rate... and etc... Under the bed was not clean, I found empty bottle of water.

      Amazing location in the middle of hunter valley, surrounded by winneries. The studio is big, very spacious, has a wonderfull bed, fully equiped kitchen and a good bathoom/shower. The surroundings are complely quiet, the views amazing. Kangaroos visit the property throughout the day. Lisa the GM is very friendly and can give you good advice on where to go to. We took our mountainbikes to visit the wineries, there is a seperate bikepath on the surrounding roads, makes it easy and safe to bike.
