Set amidst beautifully landscaped gardens and vineyards, Peppers Convent Hunter Valley Hotel is an indulgent retreat at the heart of NSW's famous wine country. The French Baroque-style property is a former convent, which has been converted into a luxury guest house now home to 17 rooms, all with verandas and spectacular views over the valley. All are tastefully decorated in country house- style and fitted with comforts like king size beds and deliciously deep baths. A hearty breakfast is served in the elegant Sun Room, Chez Pok restaurant serves gourmet Australian cuisine for lunch and dinner and the well-known Roberts Restaurant and Pepper's wine tasting barn are a short stroll away. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and massage service and a golf course is close by.
