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. Blackmail is what this amounts to and I am thinking of going legal as I have a copy of the threatening email from her. Airbnb publishes responses as the guests write them...

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....

A truly unique experience! Had a great stay and loved how peaceful and relaxing the location was whilst being close to the wineries etc. The train carriages are beautiful and we had a great night's sleep.

We just stayed for 2 nights and didn't want to leave today. Carriage (Safari) was perfect, clean and everything in great working order. We all slept like logs on the very comfortable beds. Marie (owner) was very welcoming, as were her two gorgeous (non barky) dogs. The cabin has everything you need and has the relaxed feel you want in...

I stayed in the 'Chardonnay' carriage as a part of a large group. We were thrilled to find somewhere in the Hunter which could accommodate our whole group, but after staying here we would have settled for a couple of hotel rooms. The stacked fireplaces which were ready on arrival were lovely. Unfortunately, there was no source of heating in...

The carriages have 5 blanket rating wool doonas and plenty of spare thermal blankets on the luggage racks. The hot water systems are instantaneous gas and there are two on the carriages could only be cold if they ran out of gas. The bedrooms have oil heaters so cannot understand this review. The main carriage is on a lean and...

Stayed with the aforementioned 10 person group in the "Chardonnay" carriages and agree completely with everything that was said. My wife and I unfortunately didn't have the forethought to bring sleeping bags with us - but for the price who would! We were at the other end of the accommodation carriage so the urine smell was fortunately not as intense,...
