Excellent property

The house was beautiful, we loved being there and so did the kids. A huge thank you to the owner Michael highly recommend this place to escape the rush of the city life and enjoy its beautiful surroundings. Kids made wonder memories that they will never forget.

Pretty location but very unfortunate experience

  • 2 of 5

Our family of 8 chose this house as our base for a wedding we were attending in the hunter valley. We were booked for three nights but ended up leaving after two, as the fire alarm unfortunately kept going off during the night for the two nights we stayed. The alarm had flashing lights in each room and was incredibly loud so it was impossible to sleep. Unfortunately there was no information regarding the alarm left anywhere so the first time it went off at 3am was a disaster! We assumed the flashing lights were for a security alarm and spent a long time frantically searching for a pinpad. The house has no phone or data reception so we ended up driving down to the town in our pajamas to try and contact the owner who we couldn't get hold of due to the time. Now this property has a long driveway with THREE gates that need to be shut behind you as you drive through! Not fun getting in and out of the car to open and close each gate at 3am in the morning.

We eventually figured out how to turn the alarm off but it went off several times more! The same thing happened the following night - we returned from a function at midnight to see the alarm already going off in the house !! It went off several more times that night so we unfortunately found it necessary to cut our holiday short as we didn't want to suffer through another night of flashing lights and sirens.

Now we understand that things like this are out of the owners control however we were incredibly shocked and disappointed when he did not compensate us for this severe inconvenience by providing a partial refund for the two nights where none of us got any sleep. We paid $1600 for two nights of flashing lights and sirens. We found it unacceptable that a host could have guests go through such a disaster of a stay and find it sufficient to offer a discounted rate if we ever chose to return. No thanks, we won't be coming back if that is the sort of ethics this host has.

Now to be fair , the house itself is in a beautiful location and it is very spacious. It was a good size for our group. I would however definitely advise any guests staying in warmer weather to bring some extra fans along as it was stinking hot while we were there and there is only one pedestal fan to share beteeen four rooms. There is aircon in the living room but as the house is so large it did not cool more than the living room area.

We have a great time at Wollombi staying at the farm. It suited our large groups and the spacious living areas were great for the bbqs we had with friends there.
