I was married at Roberts in November 2013 and all of my close friends and bridal party stayed at the Convent. This is the perfect setting for smaller groups to sit on the decks (where there are many), catch up, have a drink and take it all in. We couldn't have chosen a better location to stay.

Breakfast was always great, service throughout was excellent, however the only downfall is access to food for lunch or dinner. Limited options on site and limited delivery food options locally.

If that is the worst thing then there really isn't anything wrong - just bring some stuff with you.

Truly quiet, discrete and isolated for all the right reasons. Well worth the stay.....

Stayed: November 2013

My husband and I stayed at the lovely, old converted convent for two nights. The staff was helpful in organizing a boutique wine tour and quickly delivered canapés and wine before dinner in the lounge area. The hotel is small and charming but not a upscale experience.

We had difficulty getting any Internet service unless we were in the lounge. Our room was number 3. It was located across from the breakfast room and beneath some very squeaky floorboards located above our room. We heard people's voices and movement in the lounge area and also above our room. The television station list of choices was extremely poor.

Though the drive to the property was lovely and the surrounding area interesting, Peppers Convent needs some TLC (Tender Loving Care) to make this traveler return.

Room Tip: The boutique wine tour with Margaret Wendt was wonderful.

This is a charming, albeit a bit worn at the ears hotel. It used to be a convent, has a wonderful entrance coming down a long driveway with this fabulous old building in sight and it still has many of it's original beautiful features. Yes,the bathrooms might need some touching up but the ambience is quite lovely. Maybe it's leftover from the convent but I felt very peaceful there; esp. in the back garden. You are in wine country, so many wineries without long driving and near other restaurants. The staff was quite gracious and really took care of us. If we went back, I would not hesitate to stay here again.

The former convent was relocated to the site in the 1990s and is probably due for a refurb, particularly the bathrooms. Some lovely interior features and if you purchased the breakfast and evening canapé package, they were great. It was a good way, particularly in the evening, to meet people and find out about the different wineries and restaurants which abound in the Hunter Valley. We only paid for a "delux suite" and it was very small, too much furniture and nowhere to put suitcases. I had to relocate the ironing board to fit one suitcase in the cupboard. The verandah outside our room was shared by 3 other rooms and this was a bit disconcerting. Our view from the verandah was over the septic tank which is a shame as this could have been easily concealed with planting. The nearest restaurant "Roberts" is probably the most expensive in the Hunter Valley, but take your chances although we found it dreadfully inconsistent.

Room Tip: You need to pay for the most expensive room to get a "good" room, but you will probably still be sharing verandahs.

Had a wonderful stay, staff so welcoming , made you feel special ! Room was comfortable with a huge verandah to relax on . The building is a beutifull old convent converted to a hotel about 20 years ago and still has a lot of the original features. Breakfast was amazing in the sunny dining room and canapes with drinks before dinner a nice touch. Good location near lots of restaraunts and lovely gardens.We'll be back .

Room Tip: Upstairs , we were in 15
