Thistle Hill certainly exceeded our expectations! The included breakfast was amazing, especially loved that it was home style cooking. Jo and her partner went above and beyond for us, even coming to pick us up at 11pm at night! We will definitely be back!

A huge thank you to Jo and team for a wonderful stay at Thistle Hill! A group of us stayed in the Luxury Villa and it couldn’t have been more perfect. A lovely selection of wine, cheese and treats were left for us to enjoy. The breakfast each morning was delicious. We can’t wait to return.

Thistle Hill was the most perfect stay for my partner and I. Tory and Ian were extremely accommodating and were always offering to help with our every need. Complimentary cheese platters, wine, fortified wines and treats were left when we returned to our rooms, really made us feel special. Beautiful stay (the included breakfast was superb) can’t wait to return hopefully some time soon.

Thistle Hill Guest house was the ideal home away from home for our long weekend stay in the Hunter Valley with our 19 month old toddler. We were impressed by the picturesque estate, the provision of a cot, the abundant storage options in the room, and the delicious breakfast banquet using local ingredients. Our room was warm and cosy and bed so comfortable. Everyone went above and beyond in your hospitality. Thank you Jo & Jo and all the staff at Thistle Hill! We can't wait to stay with you again.

I loved Thistle Hill so much I am already planning on booking again this year . You are well looked after and the breakfast was delicious, the afternoon tea as well as the fire pit and bright shiny stars.. location is great so much on the same road. Jo and team know the area well and recommended a few winery's and reataurants . We loved Amandas and Baume

We spent two nights at Thistle Hill as part of our wedding anniversary celebrations and it was thoroughly enjoyable. John and Jo were great hosts who made us feel very welcome. They were happy to do that little bit extra to make our stay memorable. The property is lovely and breakfast was excellent. Thank you.
