Donna suggested that we visit Piggy's Peak Winery on our afternoon of arrival which was only 5 minutes away. We enjoyed a guided...

Also sent us to the Molines Bistro for lunch. Thistle Guest house is set in lovely grounds away from the road in a peaceful location. Our room was comfortable -...

We stayed for 3 nights over a long weekend. Donna was there to greet us with the two family dogs Soxy and Emile. Nice room, lovely grounds and pool/decking area. Good location for all of the Hunter Valley wineries/restaurants just a short drive away, or some of them will even come and pick you up. Breakfasts were really good and...

We were looked after by Kandy, who wasn't there when we arrived. I gave her a quick call and she was so lovely and helped us to let ourselves in over the phone. We were greeted with a cheese board and bottle of wine and the room was beautiful. We got back late one night and bumped in to Kandy...

The accomodation is a choice of very comfortable guest suites or a self contained cabin that can accomodate up to 6 people. Breakfast is served in the guest lounge which looks over...

Lisa and I enjoyed relaxing around the pool, walking the grounds and seeing kangaroos and heading out for great dinners at nearby restaurants. Donna and Stuart were wonderful hosts. Room was quaint, clean and very comfortable.

We had the pleasure of staying at Thistle Hill recently and found it to be the perfect base from which to explore The Hunter. The property is beautiful and well maintained, but what sets this place apart are the little extras. Donna and Stuart go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and well looked after. They...
