“Perfect place to stay.”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Booked in for 2 nights with my wife ,daughter and 4 your old grandson.have read other reviews and cannot agree with reviewers.Most of the complaints are what make the villas special,we loved being away from shops,we knew we had to bring supplies.We found the beds very comfortable,our grandson ran around and tired himself out.We stocked up on wines and sat on the verandah with cheese and crackers and watched the sunset.Will definitely be coming back with more of our family. One little thing to consider is there is no oven so be sure to make use of the BBQ.Can thoroughly recommend these units

Reviewed 14 July 2013

After reading all of the reviews for this place I was prepared for the lack of toiletries etc. We brought all of our own which was fine. The villa itself was very pretty and we overlooked a pond and the vineyard which was lovely. The air con worked great and warmed the room up.
We didn't so much like the pin code system to open the villa at first but once we got the hang of it, it was good.
All in all it was a clean, simple place which was good but it lacked the warm touches that a lot of other places have - no fire place etc.
The worst part about this place is the fact it is so far away from everything - closest shops to buy food is 20 mins away and to get to any restaurant for dinner was a nightmare. No shuttle services would come out as far as our place so we had to drive which meant we couldn't drink.

I love these villas and have stayed here twice. Other reviewers have complained about small things such as toiletries but this is all mentioned on their website so I was prepared. I love the set up, the space, the privacy and outlook. I did need to contact reception about a non working can opener and just emailed. A can opener was in our villa by the time we came back from dinner. A BBQ is a must here, so pick up goodies in Cessnock before arriving. As for no breakfast, I have never received a hamper or food unless paid for in advanced so not sure what the complaining is about regarding this. Not standard for accommodation. Miss the sunsets, they were spectacular.

Beltanas villas are very comfortable self contained villas with everything you need. The kitchen is well stocked, large lounge and dining, big bedroom and comfy bed. Nice balcony with BBQ looking out to vineyards with birds and kangaroos. A little out of the way but savings make up for that. Only recommendation is to provide plunger coffee. They advertise a plunger and coffee but they only provide instant. Was annoying to wait for shops to open and make 20 min round trip.

This is my second stay at Beltana Villas and would definitely recommend it. Compared to other Hunter accommodation you get much more space & privacy for the same or less amount of money.
Easy self entry & check in- come & go as you please.
Location is great- close to all wineries and concert venues.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place if you want to avoid mainstream chain hotels and have your own little Hunter villa.

I agree with most of the reviews, however, the bed was one of the worst I have ever slept in, I got a deal for 3 nights accomodation and ended up staying only 2.
The bed was a double bed, which when 2 adults slept in it, we both rolled toward the centre, I thought the amount of money spent on building and gardens, they could have invested money in comfortable beds. Also a couple of blankets would have been handy as the aircon didnt quite heat the place up quickly enough and it was rather cold at night watching some tv or even having a drink. The location wasnt too bad but a little out of the way, but if you have a car its not a big deal. But I wouldnt recommend this, for a little bit more or even the same money you can find more comfortable accomodation.

Reviewed 20 July 2012

We recently stayed at Beltana for 4 nights, the villas are new and clean but I agree with most of the other reviews about it being done on the cheap and spartan.With the prices they charge they could do with a few finishing touches. Some of the reviews date back to 2010 complaining about little things such as toiletries, breakfast hamper etc the fact that they have done nothing to improve on this shows me that there is not a lot of care factor! I would like to add to that maybe a DVD player would not go astray, you can pick one up for around $20 maybe some rugs in winter as it was freezing and the only heating supplied is reverse cond.the cooking utensils are barely enough to cook a plate of pasta for 2 and for some unknown reason they supply 3 of everything ie bowls, wine glasses etc 4 would have made a little more sense. On a positive note it is very peaceful and on a beautiful property lots of potential sometimes it's the little things that matter.
