We arrived on a very hot afternoon and were given an even warmer welcome. Ken and Sharon's idea for us to go straight in the pool was a lifesaver. The pool area boasts a shade area that also shades part of the pool. A wonderful spot to sit in and enjoy a drop of their fine wine.

Stayed here for 2nights over Christmas, Sharon and her family made us very welcome and the room was great for us. The pool and BBQ were certainly well used and the Tennis court came with good and free equipment. Would certainly stay again.

Such a beautiful place to stay. I would recommend Sovereign Hill to anyone. The lodge sits on top of the hill overlooking the vines and you get the most amazing view of your surroundings, especially the sun setting over the mountains to top off each day.

It was an ideal location to stay with a group of friends. The communal kitchen and out door area was great for everyone to catch up and eat together. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The location of Sovereign Hill is close by to all the local attractions in the Hunter Valley.
