We stayed here for three nights in July. We loved our one bedroom villa for it's peaceful outlook and privacy. It was quiet and pleasant during the day and not too far from some great wineries and restaurants.

While maybe not in the heart of pokolbin, we never struggled with convenience.

Our main concern was that the villa was very noisy in the rain. The gutters seemed to struggle with only a light shower and were gurgling all night. It was very peculiar and interrupted our sleep somewhat. Luckily it only rained on one night.

Overall a pleasant stay.

My Husband and I stayed at Beltana Villa's for our Wedding Anniversary and could not have been happier, the villa's are so spacious and well laid out. The setting is peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle of town, we slept well and warm on the comfortable bed complete with electric blanket, had complete privacy and the shower was fabulous.

Totally recommend staying here as a great base to explore the Hunter, we will be back for sure.

Room Tip: All Villa's are well placed around the property to ensure privacy and views from all.

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

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.
