We spend a very good weekend with my wife in Hunter and stayed for 2 nights with late checkout on Sunday. It's not cheap but 1 bedroom suites with a fireplace are very spacious and nice, with good kitchens. Hotel is new and suites are modern and have a very comfortable layout however there are still few things which owners can do to create a truly luxurious experience for guests. Just a little bit more attention to smaller details (like those cold white ceiling lights) will make it really upmarket.
The only real disappointment is The Legends restaurant. We booked a table to have a dinner straight after Friday evening arrival. The restaurant is very expensive however steaks were quite average and sides were tasteless.
It would be alright for a pub but in this price range you can get 5 times better experience in places like Bistro Molines or in new restaurant in Leogate Estate.
