Villa Provence
Ranked #7 of 8 Pokolbin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 July 2013

We left this morning after two pleasant days. Value for money on Cudo Voucher for two nights couldnt go wrong. Comfortable accommodation, friendly staff, well located to good restaurants, Hunter Valley Gardens and many wineries. Found the suite clean and tidy, with seperate lounge, kitchen with microwave no stovetop or oven so our recommendation is take what you need for breakfast if you dont want to go out early. We had very pleasant views over the vineyards from our upstairs suite.

This lovely little place may not be to everyone's taste. It is a touch quirky and, yes, it could do with a coat of paint BUT ..... what a restful, comfortable, welcoming and convenient place to stay with wonderful views over the vineyards and the valley.

The rooms are generous. Queen bedroom, crisp sheets, warm doona and 3 pillows per person! Separate living area with sofa,TV, table and chairs. Small but well equipped kitchenette (are you really going to cook??) neat, clean bathroom with generous fluffy towels and L'occitane toiletries. Located in the heart of the wine tasting area just minutes to everywhere!!

I thought this place was delightful, quirks and all!!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have a great view.

We have stayed at Villa Provence twice, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay !

The accommodation was very spacious with separate large bedroom, separate large lounge/dining area, great functional kitchen and large bathroom, along with a balcony if you are on the top floor.

Both times we stayed using a voucher deal, excellent value for what we paid.

Proximity to local Restaurants and Vineyards is only a few minutes away.

We'll look forward to staying here again, it's relaxed, laid back & casual. The owners are obliging & pleasant. Overall comfortable and great value for the dollar.

We arrived quite late for our stay and there was a note on the front desk to say our key was just on the table in our room. The rooms are a decent size but not overly clean. There is cutlery and glasses provided, but they were dirty so needed a good wash which was strange as there is a note advising of a 30 dollar wash up fee if you leave dirty stuff.

Sleep quality was very good and the building is a nice southern French style villa. We'll be going back in summer to spend some time next to the pool in between vineyard visits.

Room Tip: Don't move the furniture if you don't want to see the dead caterpillars

Having been in tuscany last year drinking in the wonderful feeling of history, we were drawn to the facade of the quintessential french villa scene in the photos.
And the price was right.
Unfortunately we were immediately disappointed at the less than sharp attention to detail in the room and public areas.
Clearly mainly a re-paint and a good clean is required 'everywhere', however the location was very pleasant.
Seems like the property is run by the same people who run the 'long house' which seems equally at odds as the longhouse rates very highly.??
We were fortunate to have the Champagne suite which we thought was by far the best as it overlooked the vineyards,pool and bush.on 3 sides
The room suffered from water damage to the interior paintwork above the doors facing the pool and the screen doors caught on the weather overhang whichmade it 'not perfect'.
Cracked cornices which were ugly showing the dark crack running around the rooms ceilings had developed due to the water issue caused by the overhang outside.
Added to that, were tiny cob webs with caught bugs- all around the ceiling cornices.
Spare blankets and an electric blanket were thrown into the cupboard !?.
bed was hard but acceptable and did not appear to be wornout.
Believe it or not we enjoyed our stay but can say (having hospitality and building experience between us) that with a serious effort on the owners/ managers part (paint, minor repairs and proper cleaning) - they could have an outstanding property very quickly without huge expense.
The rose gardens and dilapidated roman columns gave the place a form of authenticity.
My wife was taken by the slightly dilapidated feel of our accommodation in Florence, Italy; and kept reminding me that Villa Provence was similar- I had to reminded her that our accom in Florence was 500 yrs old!

Room Tip: get one on the first lvl as everyone walks by the ground level ones.. Champage seems like the pick i...

We booked two mid-week nights at the Villa Provence on a voucher deal so it was very cheap. The accommodation is in the heart of Polkobin - close to the major wineries, restaurants and pub. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates a nice touch. The setting is good and the owners are friendly and helpful. The only criticism is that noise carries from other rooms, not a problem confined to this venue. Certainly good value for money for what we paid.

Left Villa Provence this morning. We used a voucher which made the accomodation an absolute bargain! It was peaceful, in a beautiful location and very private. The scenery was gorgeous at sunrise and we seriously couldn't ask for more. In a great location for the Hunter. Excellent breakfast at Cafe Enzo was an added bonus. We changed our dates a few times and Jo was fantastic and very flexible, which we really appreciated! Yes, we have stayed a more glamorous places but we've paid 3 to 4 times the price too. Lovely for a few days. Thank you.
