My friend and I travelled up from Sydney to go to the Alicia Keys/John Legend concert. We stayed at Hunter Country Lodge Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night on Dec 13,14,15. The accommodation was lovely, perfect for our weekend getaway. We didn't spend too much time in the rooms as we were out exploring the Hunter, but the bed was extremely comfortable, the rooms were very clean, and beds were made and amenities replaced every morning. We brought along our dog, a Japanese Spitz, and the staff were very accommodating and welcoming. The girls in the restaurant at Shakey Tables were absolutely incredible. The service was above and beyond. They went out of their way to accommodate us and make our trip extra special. My friend is a Vegan, and they had prepared a delicious variety of foods for her to eat, without any trouble. We also arrived late on Friday night due to traffic, missing the dinner times, but it was no trouble for the kitchen staff at the restaurant. They had an amazing 3 course meal for us and we didn't have the wait long at all. It was much needed after the Friday traffic drive! The location was perfect! About a 10 minute drive to Pokolbin, the Hope Estate, the Hunter Gardens and Cafe Enzo. It isn't 5 star accommodation, but it's comfortable, clean and has a warmth about it that made us enjoy our stay! I would definitely recommend staying there and i will be back again next year - if only just to visit the wonderful staff! The food was delicious at the restaurant! Thank you Hunter Country Lodge and Shakey Tables staff for making our first trip to the Hunter Valley so memorable, welcoming and an overall awesome experience away! Miss you guys already!! :)
Cheers & Merry Christmas,
Genevieve, Hilary and Suzanne (the Japanese Spitz).
