“A wonderful Willow Tree wedding”
Reviewed 25 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

My husband and I were married at Willow Tree Estate in October 2011 and cannot speak more highly of it as a wedding venue. On the night before and night of the wedding, we stayed at Willow Tree with our parents, siblings, and bridal party and their partners, which made it a great weekend away with friends and family, and not 'just' a wedding. On the day itself, the house and grounds were wonderful for the ceremony, reception and photographs. It was not surprising to us that everything ran so well on the day, because Willow Tree was fantastic from the very beginning. Raylee was always warm and helpful, making thoughtful suggestions about the weekend and wedding, and also making everything that we wanted happen. We highly recommend Willow Tree as a venue for a wedding ceremony and/or reception.

“Fantastic Weekend”
Reviewed 9 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

people found this review helpful

From the moment the booking was made we were made to feel welcome. The summer house was everything the website said it was. We had a great weekend, close to everything and yet far enough to escape from everywhere and enjoy the peace and tranquility, kangaroos skipping across, while we sat watch the sun go down and enjoyed a glass of wine, listened to our music on the CD player, and sank into the relaxing spa.
Everything was spotless, great value and wil look forward to returning again.

“Fantastic Views and lovely accommodation!”
Reviewed 9 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We stayed in the Terrace Suite for a weekend away. We had fantastic views across the valleys, Raylee was a great help with recommendations with where to go and general advice for the region. We will certainly be going back.

“WOW”
Reviewed 3 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

From strength to strength! My wife and I were engaged over a year ago at Willowtree Estate and we have very fond memories of Raylee and her mother, the estate and the hunter valley region. Coming back, we had hoped to enjoy our trip once more but we did more than that. The rooms as always are excellently presented and overlook stunning views, nestled away with privacy on Mistletoe Lane, yet conveniently located to the whole hunter experience. We came home refreshed and relaxed, blissfully disconnected from the daily grind.

We had some favourite vinyards to visit, and new ones we had planned to see but, on Raylee's expert advice we attended a number of vinyards and restaurants which provided excellent service at reasonable prices and at one in particular, the food was Amazing.

Our visit to Raylee and Willowtree have revitalised our love of the area and we hope to return sooner than the year it took us this last time.

“Surrounded by serenity and the mojo of the moment.”
Reviewed 30 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

A wedding anniversary getaway, the first for us in ten years...just two nights. We've never been to the region before and didn't know what to expect. We stayed in one of the "spa" rooms that overlooked endless vineyards and the mountain range on the horizon.....absolutely spectacular. especially the shock of seeing a huge , silent, colourful hot air balloon drifting across our view early in the morning, I had to check the label of the wine we had at dinner!. A lovely host , who just left us alone (fantastic for a re-enactment of our honeymoon). A lovely, clean, friendly and relaxing establishment....we WILL be going back in the future

“Amazing Location and Accommodation”
Reviewed 28 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

person found this review helpful

Willow Tree Estate was a superb location for a romantic get away. The summer spa house offered a private, spacious stay and certainly did not disappoint. The suite was spotless and contained everything you need for the stay, from a cd player, to amazing bathroom, tea and coffee facilities and was just like the website showed it to be. The staff there were fabulous, extremely friendly and welcoming and offered the best advice for places to visit within the valley. Breakfast was delicious and they offered a great variety, I certainly recommend the cooked breakfast as well, a yummy touch to a hearty country brekkie.
I would definitely recommend Willow Tree Estate for your next Hunter Valley get away.
