Our host, Stuart, was so accommodating and couldn't do enough for us. Prior to our arrival bookings were made by our hosts for restaurants in the region that turned out to be outstanding. So helpful as we didn't have to think about where we would eat just what could we see. The room was very comfortable even in the extreme...

We booked our stay at the Thistle Hill Guest House months before our trip and using the internet to research the place. Our initial emails were met warmly by Donna and she kindly agreed to help organise restaurants for the 2 nights that we planned to stay. Upon our arrival, we found Donna to be equally warm in person, making...

Complimentary bottle of wine in the refrigerator with cheese and biscuits on arrival were lovely. Breakfast was also very good overlooking the pool and beautiful countryside. Excellent location, right in the heart of...

Stayed in the cottage with friends which is beautifully set up with everything you need. Donna is a fantastic hostess and puts on a great breakfast in the morning. Great pool to cool down in after a big day wine tasting ..... amazing 💜💜

We really loved our weekend at Thistle. Donna and Stuart are very welcoming and the service was top notch. Beautiful rooms and stylishly landscaped surroundings. It was a blessing to have a pool on a rather hot couple of days which we took full advantage of with a few nibbles and bottle of wine which was complimentary in our room....

This is a great B&B and Donna and Stuart are great hosts. Before I arrived I explained I was allergic to polyester in sheets and needed 100% cotton. Donna was pretty sure they were full cotton but just to make sure she went out and bought new sheets which were definitely all cotton. We were really impressed with this gesture...

A perfect spot to stay whilst exploring the vineyards of the Hunter Valley. Absolutely wonderful hosts. Stayed at the lodge which has two bedrooms separated by a lovely lounge/kitchen. The lodge was beautifully presented and very very comfortable. Welcomed with a bottle of their own wine and freshly baked food. The property set in extensive grounds and even to see...
