“A Very Memorable Stay”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Just returned from a wonderful overnight stay at Bimbadeen Estate. This lovely family run accommodation consists of 6 very private villas perched on top of Mount View, with incredible sweeping views north across the Hunter Valley. It is a perfect destination to relax and get away from it all, but still close enough to civilisation and the many wineries and eateries. An ideal couples retreat for any occasion !! Friendly hosts, cosy gas open fire, air conditioning, large spa bath with great views, lovely lavender toiletries, more than adequate breakfast hamper, complimentary bottle of their own lovely wine, good BBQ facilities, nice looking pool (not heated), well maintained grounds and gardens, comfy bed, and simply magnificent views day and night, etc, etc.

We were using a Living Social voucher and our only real disappointment was having to leave after staying just one night – we would definitely like to return and enjoy a few more nights at Bimbadeen Estate. Perfect for couples of all ages. After reading the visitors book in our villa, many other guests have had the same wonderful experience and many do return regularly which is always a good sign. Not sure if it would be exceptional value if you were paying the full advertised tariff but it was certainly a pleasure staying here. Some of the furnishings were a little dated but the villa was very comfortable with plenty of room to relax inside and also on the small balcony. Overall, a very memorable stay !!

We booked into Bimbadeen estate on the June long weekend to escape the busy rest of the hunter valley.
A romantic getaway to recharge the batteries was everything we wanted it to be. The famous Ray was away for the weekend but we were still sufficiently tended to, with a fresh breakfast basket every day and the most amazing views. Did I mention the open fire place and spa over looking the beautiful hunter. Can't speak highly enough, would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxed, romantic getaway in magnificent wine country

A great place to stay with a welcoming, friendly and genuine host. The rooms have fantastic views down over the valley which will give a spectacular sunrise if you're up early enough! Can't recommend this place enough. We will definitely be back!

Do not expect 5 star accommodation but it is comfortable and adequate. The view from your room would rival the best views in the Hunter. There is a swimming pool and two excellent BBQs all with magnificant views. The place is ideally suited for a couple who seek a quiet time. You will not be disappointed with a larger than life host, Ray!

Room Tip: Cabins 1 to 4 are on two levels while cabins 5 and 6 are on the one level.

This property was better than expected for us and another couple who were spoiled rotten by the amazing views and accommodation.

The villa itself was well laid out with amazing views from the large bay windows and extra large corner spa in the bathroom. The breakfast basket was enough for a light meal with toast, fruit juice, yogurt and fruit delivered to your room each day.

What made this stay even better was the service we received from Ray who went out of his way to make this couple of days special. Ray advised us of the best small tour company, some great places to eat and the best wines to try. He even joined us down the local for a couple of beers to end what was a great 3days in the Hunter.

Room Tip: Rooms 2 and 3 both had access from the patio to the back of the villas and pool.

Stayed here over the weekend following Boxing Day, I can not fault this place, the room (villa 5) was fantastic with the most incredible views, we also had a great time relaxing around the recently renovated pool area. Ray our host was super friendly & helpful. We will be back again!!!

We stayed in a great villa, with fantastic views, and the best spa tub I have ever encountered. Clean and comfortable, it made for a great base to explore the valley. It was a shame Ray didn't have the chance to take us through a tasting of the estate's wines, but there is no shortage of great cellar doors nearby. Would recommend as a fantastic romantic getaway.
