    A good experience

    The stay was amazing and the amenities were excellent. We had great time at the resort. Only downside for us was that the mattress and quilt were quite warm and we were unable to sleep properly even after keeping the Aircon to the least temperature in the room. Apart from that it was pretty good

  • 6.0.Good

    Always love coming back to the hunter, the property has a lot onsite to offer and previously the family feel enticed us back every year from the gold coast. Miss the precovid warm feel. Massive staff changes and feels a lot more clinical. Was very thankful for the handful of staff that have been at property from previous years as they bring warmth. Its nice to feel special as a returning customer, this ensures the property stands out from others! Havent really felt it this time. ..

  • 4.0.Fair

    Whilst the the facility itself was quite nice and great for families. I was just disappointed with the customer service and staff. Everytime we called reception there was no-one that ever answered, you had to pay extra for someone to clean room which i would assume should just be part of the room rate pn etc. It just didn't really feel like a hotel experience that you essentially pay to experience.
