We were attending a wedding in the Hunter Valley and as this is just a tad too far from Sydney to drive home at 11pm we elected to stay overnight. Accommodation is expensive, but we cut our costs by sharing a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa with another couple that we knew were also attending the wedding. The accommodation was excellent with a kitchen, spacious living room with TV, 2 bedrooms and main and ensuite bathrooms, all with great views over the golf course. Lunch in the bar area was good value (although the young lady taking our meal order could have actually looked us in the eye and smiled), but we decided to give the full buffet breakfast at $38 per person (continental breakfast available for $28 per person) a miss as we felt this was just a tad expensive. We found a great cafe near one of the wineries and grabbed a grabbed a hot breakky for approx $20 a head. All in all, I would go back and stay again.
