“Fabulous easter weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

We spent Easter weekend at the homestead (third time we have stayed there) and had a great time. The homestead is very spacious and there was plenty room for all the family and our 3 grandkids. We had egg and spoon. three legged races and easter egg hunts on Easter sunday on the lovely field in front of the homestead! The kids had a ball and although the house is not brand new and modern it is a good value place to stay with a group of people. It is also a great base for the vineyard concerts as the bus picks you up at the bottom of the driveway.
We will definately use again and will recommend to others!

A group of 8 of us friends stayed in Hunter Homestead , this was the 2nd time we had been here as we enjoyed the freedom, huge amount of space and facilities that were offered.
We had a blast and will be back again a third time I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wanted a stay in Hunter Valley as it is in close proximity to restaurants and other activities.
Owners were lovely and gave us complementary wine , a fridge with food and drinks for breakfast and were very hospitable ,
Thankyou , we will definitely be back again soon

We stayed in the Cottage over Easter and were very disappointed!! The cottage is very old and tired. Bed sags in the middle and is not comfortable. The cutlery falls apart when you use it and the glasses are chipped. The coffee mugs are chipped and not washed properly. they are seriously stained. It is like several construction shed stuck together with paper thin walls. When people are in the Homestead it is like they are in your backyard. Yelling and crying kids destroy the peace and tranquility of the place. Had to keep the curtains shut to have any privacy. We would not stay here again and would not recommend the cottage to anyone.

We stayed in the big house for a Day on the Green Weekend. Did not spent much time in the actual house as they have a big covered area out the back which is perfect for relaxing and eating meals. BBQ good and house comfortable. Owners are very nice and very accommodating. They were very generous with the supplies they left for breakfast, really plenty for more than one breakfast.

This was our second time staying at the main house at the Hunter Homestead and had just as good a time. The house is clean and tidy and perfect for our needs.

The Hunter Homestead team are great. They never hesitated to let us have a longer checkout time at short notice and their cleaner found a very precious piece of jewellery we had left behind.

Thank you Hunter Homestead :D

We loved our stay at the cottage at Hunter Homestead. The cottage was clean and tidy, roomy enough for us and had everything you needed. The cottage also has a great verandah were you can sit in the sun and enjoy the surrounding countryside. We stayed for 4 nights while we minded our grandkids and they loved feeding the horses and having space to run around. The owners were very helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The bacon, eggs etc was a nice surprise and the lovely bottle of red that they gave us was beautiful. We would thoroughly recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a comfortable, quiet place to stay in a beautiful area.

Room Tip: Great value for money

Just what we were looking for,ticks all the boxes & big enough to accommodate our large family group.
The breakfast provisions were a nice surprise, bacon & eggs etc & the complimentary wine was great.
The weather was not the best but the large covered entertainingt area kept us all nice & dry while we had our BBQ.
When we go away we look for a place that is clean & comfortable & doesnt break the budget & this place fits the bill, it is well equiped & located in a beautiful area this was a bonus, would definitely recommend this property as good value for money.
The bbest nights sleep I've had in years.
