We stayed in the Gatehouse (Room 9) for 2 nights on the October long weekend. After only one night, we were so relaxed that it felt like we had been away for a week.
We had spent lots of time researching because we didn't want to stay in a large commercialised hotel room - but still wanted to be reasonably central to everything.
Carriages was a perfect setting. It exceeded our expectations. We were nestled amoungst some beautful gardens and the winery which was so picturesque and peaceful. The room was large and beautifully presented. The entire suite was exceptionally clean (including the spa bath ensuite).
Each morning a breakfast hamper was left for us to enjoy, including croissants, muffins, toast, cereal, juice, etc.
The cottages are in the same street as the Peppertree winery and Robarts restaurant. We were only approximately 3km to Muses restaurant and 2-3km to Pokolbin village. And probably 5km up the road from the Hunter Valley Gardens.
We would highly recommend this place for a visit to the Hunter Valley region. We even bought some of their wine as a souvenir to remember our romantic weekend away.
