Excellent place to stay in the hunter valley region. From motel rooms to townhouse style accom around the golf course ! We were given a beautiful King suite with a view of the very large outdoor pool and spa area. Staff at check in & concierge were awesome - very helpful ! Amazing place to stay for many occasions !
