We recently returned from a wonderful 2-night New Years stay at Splinters Lodge. Like all the other reviewers have commented, Bobby really makes Splinters the lovely guest house it is and we couldn't have asked for more from a host. From providing local advice to helping make reservations and even going above and beyond to help organise a New Year's Eve BBQ for us, Bobby really helped make our time in the Hunter that much better.
Splinters is in a really handy spot on Hermitage Road, with a number of excellent vineyards within walking (or cycling distance) and top notch restaurants not much further away. Our rooms were clean and comfortable with all the extras you could need, including cheese and wine on arrival. The breakfast is also lovely and of really high quality - one of the best I have ever been offered at a guest house or hotel of any kind! We also used the pool which was nice and clean and just what you need after a day cycling the vineyards. We have previously stayed at other places in the Hunter but Splinters is now top of the list :)
