It was a great customer experience from start to finish. Pleasure dealing with each staff member I spoke to and the place itself was superb. Exactly what we wanted and set up perfectly."

"Hunter Valley Stays staff were very helpful. Impressed with the cleanliness and presentation of the house. Little extras such as the Easter chocolates and a bottle of wine were above and beyond & make the stay memorable, and worth recommending. Cheers."
Michelle, Lomandra Retreat, April 2019

"Hunter Valley Stays made for an easy booking process. No complaints. Very happy with how it all went."
Amy, Alphawood, April 2019

"Hunter Valley Stays really were fantastic to deal with - and I spoke to several different customer service reps throughout the booking process. I'm very glad we were able to book with you rather than Airbnb or Stayz. The personal service, amazing booking and registration process, very thorough information about our stay and being able to talk to someone on the phone whenever we had a query was brilliant. And I liked the fact that any revenue from our booking was staying here in Australia rather than profiting a big overseas company :)"

Wendy, Capercaillie Estate, March 2019

A lot of break out spaces, full kitchen for our cooking challenges and the pool to relax and break away! The team at Hunter Valley Stays were very accommodating and answered every question of mine, whether it was a stupid question or not. I will definitely be looking to stay here again and 10/10 for everything including awesome customer service!"

The coffee pods were a life saver and the wine, oil and balsamic vinegar were a beautiful touch. When we had a leaking tap, the team were immediate to respond. When I left an item behind, the team promptly retrieved the item and returned it. I will definitely be recommending Hunter Valley Stays to friends and family. Thank you once again."

"Our stay at Rosedale Estate was a wonderful experience, Thankyou to the hunter valley stays team and the owners of the property. We came together as a family to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday. There were four generations present and Rosedale catered for everyone’s needs in a warm and comfortable way. The seniors were able to relax and enjoy a nice wine in front of the fire and the children were safe in this warm and inviting home, with plenty of space to run and feel free. Some very happy memories made."
