We were a booking of four couples and this was our second visit after a nine year period.
The accommodation is more Motel type, it is well sited atop a steep hill, has six rooms, a common room, all with glorious views over the valley and the.vineyards.
The Rooms are simply furnished but are clean and spacious and include breakfast provisions along with: toasters, egg cookers, crockery, cutlery and tea/coffee making facilities.
Our group also appreciated the ability to prepare and share meals in the well equipped communal kitchen and attractive dining area. The BBQ was used extensively for cooking breakfast, however the BBQ is getting a bit old and needs up-dating. If you want a full breakfast, while eggs are provided, you will need to stock up with bacon, tomatoes etc., yourself.
Overall, Sovereign Hill Country Lodge provides good value for money, particularly on weekday stays.
The location at Lovedale is quiet and just far enough away from the tourist masses but close enough to be able to get to and enjoy the vineyards and restaurants at Pokolin and other sites around the Hunter.
