Lovely stay at the guest house!”

Lovely rooms and grounds and good bar and breakfast area. They have hotel bikes you can rent for free for half a day to explore the area. Only thing that lets it down is the pool area which I wouldn't bother with.

Guest House”

The Guest House is in a great location, rooms were good, bathrooms could do with a facelift, but this is being done apparently. Evening meal was ok, a bit expensive to be honest but nice, breakfast outside in the sun was amazing, choice and quality etc was first class.

Feedback”

Dispite a ruptured hose in the bathroom, my stay was very good because the manage and staff went all out to make us as comfortable as possible, by offering a new room etc. What was surprising was the complimentary bottle of wine in our room and a refund. I couldn't have been more appropriative and felt like I was treated like a silkworm. I would stay their again.

Beautiful Country Escape”

I've stayed at the Guest House once before in 2009 and was beautiful and relaxing back then as it is now. The staff couldn't have been nicer and helpful which made our stay even more welcoming. The grounds are beautiful especially if you like wildlife. The rooms were large and very comfy with a gorgeous outlook. The restaurant had a beautiful ambiance with a lovely atmosphere & good music, and the food was excellent. It would make the perfect setting for a wedding...very romantic. I don't think I'd really want to stay anywhere else in the hunter valley. This was just perfect. We brought our son and his partner here for his birthday and they loved it too.

Very clean with good size rooms”

Comfy beds, decent bathroom, quiet surroundings

The room was excellent and very comfortable for my husband and I and our daughter. It was a birthday surprise for our daughter on her first trip to the Hunter and the wineries. The room was a little pricey especially when you are asked to pay $2.50 for a pod of coffee. First 2 were free, but there was three of us staying. Not enough milk for the coffee either. Quite expensive when you only need a shower and a bed for the night. No issues with the room or the comfort factor.I would rate it 3.5 to 4 stars overall.

Sadly very disappointed”

Location and surrounds

Does not align with the Peppers brand any longer. Previously stayed and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately we were very disappointed right from our arrival, waited 15 minutes before anyone attended to us even after being seen 3 times by staff, I eventually asked if someone could check us in. We were told they were busy as there was a wedding which we were aware of as they had blocked the driveway. Booked in for dinner at 7.30 pm and arrived to be told we had to wait for 30 minutes as the kitchen needed a break, ordered a bottle of red wine that was listed as 2011 and got 2014 bottle. Put all that past us as we were very hungry and looking forward to dinner. Had one good entree and decent main the rest of the dinner was uneatable (even the waitress agreed). Order was also incorrect and we were given food we did not order and were then told what we order was not available. Food seemed to be left over from the wedding and reheated absolutely awful. When we received our bill for dinner we were over charged for 3 courses as well as 2 courses (only 2 of us). Service was also poor we refilled our wine glasses and after receiving initial glasses of water they were not refilled. Rooms needed updating and are small, given 2 complimentary pod coffees which are not replaced daily and then cost $2.50 each, grounds in parts are kept but generally need a lot of work.

Peppers needs a little.....”

Location,

Our stay of one night was quite 'pleasant', though we were expecting a little more. The decor and furnishings and carpets were all a little 'tired', and the accommodation could do with a spruce up. Could be fantastic as the building and surroundings are great. Have a look at 'Chewton Glenn' in the New Forest area of UK. Expensive but they know their market.

Nice hotel with great holiday atmosphere”

Great interior design, friendly staff, nice breakfast

Peppers always provides nice relaxing holiday atmosphere for the customer. The room is a little bit outdated but I love the style and arrangement of the room. The first room that we stayed I can hear some noise from the pipes so asked the staff if we can have a different room, and they let us change so that's great, there's no noise in the second room at all. The breakfast buffet was very nice, which I enjoyed very much too. Although it is a bit expensive if it's not included in your hotel booking deal. Overall it's a nice getaway from the city and would love to come back again.
