We booked Splinters Guesthouse based on earlier reviews to celebrate our 18 year anniversary. This was our first time at the Hunter Valley and we absolutely loved it.
My husband and I stayed in one of the cottages for 3 nights and could of easily stayed for longer (but our children wouldn't of been too happy back home).
Bobby is just wonderful - a lovely lady who provides only the best in her guesthouse.
The cottage was beautiful and very clean. All the extras like a cheese platter and bottle of wine on arrival, port and chocolates made us feel special. The property is lovely - my husband enjoyed playing Par 3 (golf) and I enjoyed the peaceful scenery. We will definitely return to Splinters and recommend this place 100%. During our stay we went to the Hunter Valley Wine School (very interesting if you want to learn more about wine making and tasting), Cheers wine tasting tour (excellent - the tour was well organised), ate at Amanda's on the Edge (delicious) and Brokenback BBQ & Tapas Bar (very nice food and great cocktails) and recommend a Balancing mud moor bath & facial at The Golden Door Spa (felt like I was on top of the world!). From Canberra it took us just over 5 hours to get to Pokolbin and it is so worth it. I can't wait to go back.
