We stayed here 3 years ago on a previous visit to the Hunter Valley, On that occasion we stayed in a room, basic, but very comfortable. Restaurant decor OK, food good.
This time, we were travelling with friends so stayed in a lodge for 2 nights. This was also very basic, with uncomfortable seating, it felt more like camping. Maybe just a rug on the floor would help, or a bit of colour somewhere would stop it looking and feeling less drab. No problem with brown water, this is to be expected in this area, and a jug of clear drinking water is provided in the fridge.
The restaurant was a joke, it looks now more like a stop on a motorway for lorry drivers. The seating again is old and tatty, the numerous, and I mean numerous cushions, are dirty and ripped. Best if they were removed altogether. The food - dinner was expensive, and at best - OK. Breakfast was something else - we walked into the restaurant, sat down at an already set table, and were told to move, these were set out for dinner. We were told to pick an empty table AND SET IT OURSELVES. This is an absolute disgrace, at the prices they charge (we paid £210 that's = AUD350) per night for B&B for the lodge, they should do much better. Breakfast is serve yourself from the buffet????
Only 1 member of staff seen for approx 2 mins in total on either morning.
More worrying though is the overall state of the place externally, it looked dirty and neglected, as if they were running down ready for closure. This was February, hardly out of season. The few other guests there we spoke to were equally disappointed,and complaining ( they were from Sydney)
Later on in the trip we stayed in Margaret River, visited a few wineries, and they were dramatically different,really superb!!!! Hunter Resort - do your guests a favour, it's really time to renovate and clean the place up.

Being a frequent traveller to the Hunter Valley for work, it's often refreshing to pause - and take a couple of days to unwind. And that is what we did up here!

Though Hunter Valley Resort is a little further away from the main Broke Road busy-ness, it's only a few minutes' drive to the tourist attractions.

What we enjoyed is the many activities we can do 'on location' - the Wine Theatre tour and tasting, an easy lunch at Blue Toungue Brewery, then relax in the heated spa (particularly with the cooler change).

The room was very comfortable, and the bed was divine! Slept like an angel!

My husband & I stayed for a weekend with our newborn son. It was our first time away with him & we were so thankful to the resort & restaurant staff for making it a weekend we'll remember fondly!

We braved our first dinner out as new parents at the resort's gorgeous San Martino restaurant & were so impressed with the service. As we were seated, we asked if it would be possible to have our meal 'to go' if our son decided to become unsettled. The waitress completely understood & was very reassuring. All three courses were served very promptly & yet the meal did not feel rushed in the slightest. Our food was delicious!! & the ambiance was romantic & cosy with dim lighting.

The resort reception staff were very friendly & helpful (even over the phone when I initially booked) & Sally at the Heavenly Hunter Massage Centre gave me the most relaxing Hawaiian style massage. We would happily stay again.

Our room was a lovely Vineyard room, which was a wooden cottage, covered in pink flowers and overlooked the vineyards. Room was massive, bed huge and comfortable. Bathroom basic but clean with great complimentary toiletries. Staff in reception were friendly and helpful. There is a bar which does food and drink, nice to sit outside or inside. The restaurant where we ate one evening was very good, pricey but good.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom lodge which was fantastic...great decor & lovely location, especially waking up with wild Kangeroos outside your window...! Lodges are nicer than the other rooms, worth paying more for.

The wine tasting tour is really interesting & wine is fab too!

Only one restaurant, which is very plush but expensive & no where else to go for miles to eat, so have to eat there.

Beautiful location & area.
