My husband and I really enjoyed our Winter escape to the Carriages in what is a secluded location. It is a beautiful Hotel with a lot of warmth and charm. We were upgraded for some reason and enjoyed our stay in one of the rooms on the second floor. We had a lovely fire and enjoyed receiving our breakfast each... More

The room was lovely with the open fire place. Unfortunately we did not get to use all the facilities due to weather that weekend. No phone reception or Wifi in the rooms. Breakfast basket was ok. People were lovely. Be nice if there was a restaurant or room service options available.

This was our first visit at Carriages. We had come for a mini-honeymoon and they made us feel so welcome. On arrival we were greeted by their lovely Border collie, Wellington Boots! We were treated to a great little wine tasting of their wines as we checked in, our favorite was the old world style rose (it was by far... More

Lovely boutique b&b for a cozy weekend away in the Hunter Valley. Very accommodating staff who kindly arranged our wine tour and dinner restaurants bookings. The Rose from this vineyard is a must try. Breakfast served in a cute basket left at the door each morning. Only criticism is, shower could have been better for this price.

We thought we were the only ones staying all weekend. It was so quiet and peaceful. Beautiful surrounds, close to all that the Hunter has to offer. Our accommodation in a Verandah room was just lovely, spacious, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. There was nothing more we could have asked for. The owners and staff were very friendly and... More

Lovely place to stay for a weekend away either as a couple or in a group. They have a lovely two bed cottage as well as individual rooms. Friendly staff, lovely rooms and very peaceful. Great breakfast delivered to your door and the vineyard wines are very drinkable. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in the cottage, which is shared with one other room. Surrounded by trees, lovely walks through the vineyard, peace, tranquility. The wi fi access is at the office only so a ten minute walk away but that suited us perfectly. A one minute drive to great restaurants. Fabulous bed. large room with sitting area. Highly recommended.

Went away for a short weekend trip. In a lovely location, quiet and peaceful. Very friendly owner who provides wine from their vineyard. The room we stayed in had lovely decor with a beautiful fire place which would be fantastic in winter. Breakfast was delightful and tasty and had good portion sizes of everything. Would come back again!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We think you’re going to love this place. It’s a boutique hotel with 10 rooms, set on an award-winning vineyard. In winter enjoy a roaring log-fire, a squashy sofa, a smooth bottle of wine. On warm days wander through French doors into the garden, dip into the salt-water pool, or play tennis. Sleep in the finest fresh white sheets and wake up to a seasonal breakfast basket at your door. It’s an enchanting retreat at the end of a famous little road. Legendary vineyards, wineries, chef’s hat restaurants, world class golf courses, spectacular Hunter Valley Gardens, chocolate & cheese shops are all close by… plus Carriages Boutique Wines are onsite for your drinking pleasure. COME AND STAY. ... more   less
