Beautiful and well-maintained surroundings, peaceful place but at the same time close to one of the best wineries and restaurants. The breakfast was delicious and generous. The owner, Jo, was lovely and friendly and bakes the best croissants we have ever tried. Overall, a good place to stay in the heart of Hunter Valley
