“Very friendly stay.”
Reviewed 22 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a last minute getaway and stayed here for one night. From the friendly greeting we got upon arrival we knew we were in for a lovely stay. The room was spacious and inviting. Great location, close to some lovely restaurants. Unfortunately the restaurant we booked at was part of the big blackout in the area and we didn't get to experience it. After that disappointment, the owners were very helpful in providing a cooked breakfast for us. It was greatly appreciated. All the more reason to visit the Hunter Valley again.
The friendly owners were so helpful during our stay, we would certainly visit again.

“Lovely location, lovely service”

My husband and I had a quick stay here as a last minute decision. Willow Tree Estate has gorgeous surrounds, which is peaceful and tranquil - yet it is still close to all the key restaurants and Lower Hunter Valley sites.

The service was lovely, warm and welcoming. The style of the rooms is older, not modern, but very clean and comfortable.

The breakfast was simple and suited our needs. If you are expecting hotel-style continental then you'd be disappointed, but everything was fresh, and we had all we wanted.

I would stay there again, even though we usually like more modern facilities. It was just so warm and welcoming and had a beautiful atmosphere. The owners are clearly lovely people.

I had the pleasure of staying here for 2 nights recently. There was a group of us that booked the whole place out for a birthday celebration. It is amazing! Great set up allowing us to celebrate in style ! Breakfast was awesome and plenty of it! The rooms are spacious and very clean. I stayed in the 'eastern room' that had stunning views across a lake,vineyards and beautiful gardens. Perfect room for great sunrises with kangaroos a plenty on the grounds and hot air balloons in the background! Willow tree is in the perfect location close to everything . Our host Raylee was amazing! She went above and beyond to make us all feel welcome. Would thoroughly recommend it , 10 out of 10 , do yourself a favour , willow tree estate is just perfect!

“We felt like we were visiting a close friend.”
Reviewed 27 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The setting of this bed and breakfast is pristine. We felt very secluded, which was great, yet everything was about ten or fifteen minutes away. The grounds were immaculate, with all sorts of interesting birds and some kangaroos hanging around. There was nothing quite like sitting on our balcony overlooking the mountains and the wildlife. Raylee really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. She took care of our dinner reservations each night, made sure we got where we needed to go for our hot air balloon ride, and helped us arrange transportation for our winery tours and even for our dinner! We really felt that she was making sure we had everything we needed during our whole visit to Hunter Valley. The food she set out every morning was delicious, too. We had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before and enjoyed every minute of it.
