“Most Beautiful Wedding”
Reviewed 27 October 2010 for a stay in September 2010

We had our wedding at Willow Tree Estate in September 2010. From the moment of booking to after the actual event, Raylee was welcoming, helpful and accomodating. The venue is picturesque. The service is impeccible. It has a beautiful, relaxed country charm that make your wedding so special. I have the most beautiful memories of our wedding weekend and would absolutely recommend Willow Tree to anyone.

“Best place for a wedding, the whole package!”

We had our wedding on Friday October 1st 2010. We were so happy with Willow Tree Estate and all the effort that Raylee and her team put into preparing the grounds and rooms for our special day. All of our guests were blown away with how awesome the venue was for a wedding. The photos im sure will be amazing (but not yet received) as there were so many amazing background shots, including the dam, the vineyards, the willow trees and rose gardens. The whole wedding package worked out quite reasonable as we were able to take our own alcohol and it accommodated our families over night, in beautifully presented guest suites.
Everyone left raving about their time spent there. Well done guys!!

“Beautiful homestead with fantastic servce & close to wineries”

person found this review helpful

My wife, 4 week old daughter and I stayed here as part of a wedding. We were given one of the rooms to call home for two nights and the whole experience was faultless. Without commenting on the wedding (which was lovely) the location, building and grounds were very country authentic. The room we had included a 4 post bed, spa bath and plenty of room. Oh, and a big private balcony. If you stayed here for a get away, you can easily do it with a small child and definetly would be great for a couple's romantic getaway as well. Their servce, as soon as we were spotted with the little one we were immediately approached and asked if there was anything, anytime we needed for the little one, just to ask and we would be looked after.... nice touch.
There are plenty of accomdation options in the hunter valley, and I am sure most have great views, but I am sure not all of them have the same service and friendly welcoming atmosphere that you will get from Raylee and the others at Willow Tree Estate.

“Wow what an amazing place for a work conference”

person found this review helpful

Wow what an amazing place. I would highly recommend it. I had to arrange an annual work conference and choose Willow Tree Estate, and we were not disappointed. What a Special place that is truly assembled with great love and care. The warm professional & friendly feel that you receive from the owner Raylee is extremely rare. I had 12 work colleagues say what a wonderful place to stay all commenting on how large & clean all the rooms were & said that they would love to come back again next year, stating that it was a lot nicer than any other 5 star resort that they have stayed in. The breakfast was amazing, one of the nicest I have had, no one went hungry and they were more than happy to cater to our dietary requirement, I could not fault one thing, & the price was fantastic so would highly recommend booking your next work conference here

“Private and relaxing summerhouse, beautiful grounds”
Reviewed 13 September 2010 for a stay in September 2010

I stayed at the summerhouse on the willowtree estate property for two days. Raylee was incredibly welcoming and helpful, and the breakfast which was provided very healthy! I would highly recommend staying at the Summerhouse. It is freestanding on the property behind the main house and offers a private alternative to the traditional guest house experience. It had a great view over the grounds (down to where the kangaroos graze) from the bedroom area, and a nice view from the spa bath too. Very spacious and comfortable. Would highly recommend staying there if you are visiting wineries in the Hunter. Very romantic.

“The Ultimate Romantic Escape”
Reviewed 11 September 2010 for a stay in September 2010

My partner and I decided to plan a romantic escape to the Hunter Valley and came across Willow Tree Estate by chance on the internet. It seemed like the perfect hideaway to spend a few uninterrupted days and on such a beautiful property.

In actual fact, the photographs don't do the place any justice... the place is absolutely stunning and the Summerhouse Spa Suite is everything you could ask for and more! And there really are kangaroos just outside!

The hospitality at Willow Tree is second to none. Raylee was fabulous in attending to our needs (however big or small) and an absolute pleasure to deal with. It's been less than a week and we're already planning our return and refuse to stay anywhere else!

Thank you again for the perfect holiday - 5 stars!

See you again soon,
Maryanne & James
