“Fantastic! A+++”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2008

You cannot go wrong staying here. The setting is fantastic, Bobby (the owner) is friendly and helpful (she even came to pick us up when we went out for dinner!) the room was beautiful, clean and had everything you could possibly need including a kettle, egg boiler, fridge, TV, welcome pack of food, Port and wine and a modern comfortable bathroom. Bobby's local knowledge is invaluable and she can recommend nice places to eat and visit.

There is also a small pool which was really refreshing after a day drinking wine in the sun!

I thought the prices were reasonable too.

I'd well recommend for a romantic weekend or a place to stay with friends. I am sure Bobby and her husband would be welcoming to everyone.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2006

As tourists in Sydney, we decided to take an overnight trip to the Hunter Valley Wine region. From the web we chose Splinter's Guest House, largely randomly. That choice, though, greatly enhanced our visit to the region. The innkeeper, Bobbi, was determined that we have a good experience. She recommended several very small vineyards to visit and even called ahead to facilitate our visits. She provided excellent recommendations for eating. When we mentioned that we were interested in horseback riding, she called ahead and arraned it. As a result of all of this personal attention, we experienced wonderful aspects of Hunter Valley often missed by tourists. The bed and breakfast itself was quite nice. They have a one-hole golf course and a set of clubs although you need to shoo the kangaroos away to play and step gingerly to avoid the roo poo. I am sure there are fancier inns and place to stay in the Hunter Valley but I would be surprised if there were more enjoyable place to stay.
