Gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate house, so comfortable and special. The power went out in the area, and Hunter Valley Stays came out to bring us water to tie us over for a few hours - so impressed! We love this house and would definitely come again. Wonderful home away from home, loved it

Too many small issues

  • 2 of 5

We had a nice stay at Ballaview but a lot of this was due to the company and less to do with the property. There were too many small issues like the toilet seat being broken, toilet door sticking and the power cutting out a number of times due with no access to the fuse box leaving us without power. The hunter valley is a lovely location and this property is reasonably well located in the area but you will need a car or you will be very isolated. I can't imagine I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi Colm,Thank you for your review and feedback from your stay, which we greatly appreciate and we are very sorry that the property did not meet your full expectations. Our maintenance team have been onsite and having inspected the toilet they have advised us that the seat has just moved slightly and the screws required a tightening up. Also they tested the toilet door and confirmed that it does require a firm pull to open. We note that the one occasion when the power went off, that this was attended to and rectified by the owner within 15 minutes of your call. We are glad you enjoyed the Hunter and being a rural area, we agree that having a car is a great idea so you can access and enjoy the cellar doors, restaurants and attractions, not only on the same street as Ballaview, but also in the Lovedale region, only minutes from the property. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Hunter soon, Hunter Valley Stays

not suitable for very hot weather,

  • 3 of 5

There was no a/c in the 2 bottom bedrooms and the A/C units in the other rooms were filthy and needed a service.

We paid for 5 star but got 3.

Owner's Response: Thanks Paull for your valued feedback. Sorry the property did not meet your expectation. Maintenance has serviced the aircon units and knowing your stay was during our recent 46 degree heat wave, we appreciate that the rooms without aircon would have been hot. Many new and exciting improvements are currently being made to this property so we hope you visit again to experience this property’s refresh.
