This is a fun place to stay with a group, with our carriage the Victorian sleeping up to 8. Within walking distance of the concert venue and a few minutes to Hunter Gardens, restaurants and vineyards. See amongst trees with the right weather this would be fabulous. Had a kitchen, lounge and outdoor covered deck with barbecue. The main double...

From the very moment that I contacted Marie about her accommodation she was helpful and went out of her way to accommodate me. Six of us stayed in the Victorian carriage for 2 nights for the Bruce Springsteen concert. We had such a great time. The carriage was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed for a lovely weekend. Marie...

We stayed 2 nights in Marie's Royal Train while visiting Hunter Valley. The interior has been lovingly renovated in beautiful rose wood and using genuine railway fittings. The bed was really comfy with crisp sheets. The whole effect is one of antique charm. The carriage is in a rural setting in a wooded context with bordering fields. In the late...

What a fabrication . Wow I knew from the outset that these guests did not like the carriage but to make up this about cleanliness is so disturbing. ALL MY LINEN GOES TO A LINEN SERVICE .They bought a dog with them and if there was dog hair it came from their own dog. The Victorian was checked for any...

Stayed one night in the Victorian train carriage accomodation with 6 other friends and loved it! The carriage was beautiful and fun to stay in and accommodated all of us comfortably. It got quite cold overnight but we were all warm and snug in our beds. Our host was lovely and helpful. Will definitely bring the family back to stay,...

Admittedly, I did see some mixed reviews on here which made me a little nervous... But as soon as I arrived I was greeted by a very friendly Maria and her two tiny puppies (don't understand how anyone could have a problem with them.. They are super friendly greeters). The orient train carriage stay was a surprise for my sisters...

Lovely girls thanks. We do have highly polished walls and the carriage is housekeeped on day of entry so should not have been any dust, however if the .mower has been around the carriage when we open them up it can create dust. Yes fully self catering, we do this to keep the costs down

We stayed 3 nights and had an awesome experience. Our carriage was clean, cosy and comfortable. Had everything we needed. Marie (our host) was more than accommodating. Even lending me her riding boots to go to the very muddy concert! Couldn't fault our stay. Will definitely go back.

The place has great potential - it's situated in a lovely spot and the cottage itself is very nice. The beds were comfortable, the linen and towels were clean and that's where it stopped. The kitchen on the surface appeared clean, until you started pulling things out of drawers and cupboards. We had to wash everything before using it, even...

This guest is a cheat threatened me with filing this review if I didnt give her half her money back as half her guests did not show up.

We stayed two nights and enjoyed it immensely. There are a few compromises - may not be for you if you are after four or five star. Its special character is the fact that it is a real train - the one we stayed in used to take me to work!! It is very reminiscent with all the hardware and...

We booked to stay for one night but left by 6pm because we just couldn't bear the thought of staying the night. The lights didn't work inside the carriage and there were no lights outside for bbq/deck area. The bbq was electric and the only power point meant you had to stretch it across the doorway and into the kitchen....
