Received a voucher for a stay at this eco resort. Cannot express how happy my wife and I were with the experience. From the moment we arrived, and were greeted with a glad of champaign, to our registration, familiarisation and throughout the entire weekend, we could not fault the staff at Eaglereach. We are both well travelled, across a number of countries, and could honestly say we've never had a more satisfying hassle free experience. The lodge was great, the food at the restaurant was brilliant, even the wildlife were accommodating. Just a really great weekend all round. Thank you Eaglereach for a memorable weekend.

My friend and I decided to start our Australian adventure with a relaxing stay at Eaglereach. We were collected at the Sydney Airport by "Here to Thair" owned and operated by Garren Allerton and after a described drive with a stop at a local farmer's market, we found ourselves in our huge, beautiful cabin overlooking the Hunter Valley. We each had lovely, sun-filled rooms with our own fully equipped bathroom, wrap-around deck, and stunning views. We were visited by wallabies, kangaroos, and a very haughty magpie. Over our two days, we took several walks - always with roo sightings - through the bush. While we recognize it is winter, the temperatures are tolerable and the constellations brilliant. The staff, the food, the ambience, the peace and quiet - just what we had hoped in order to ease into the new circadian rhythm before launching into tours and more frenetic amusements. Thank you, Eaglereach staff for all of your many kindnesses

Needed a last minute mini break out of Sydney with family (2 adults, 2 kids - 3 years and 7 months). Found this place - and struck gold. Individual lodges - ours prob smallest end of the scale at 2 bed 2 bath - clean, comfortable, amazing views, log fire - all we could ask for (decor simple and old fashioned but that's not a problem with rural retreat and kids!). Welcome incredibly friendly - staff all happy to chat and made us feel very at home. Facilities great - bistro with full buffet breakfast, and good hearty food, plus they do take away and self cook options - great to be able to get fish and chips at home in front of a DVD when the kids too tired to be on restaurant behaviour. Children's playground was a massive hit - from look of it is new. Scenery stunning. And best of all - kangaroos EVERYWHERE - for our 3 year old this was the most exciting thing ever, especially being able to feed them by hand (even if there was a bit if hiding behind daddy in case the big ones ate her...). 48 hours away from home door to door, and feeling well rested mentally, physically exhausted from walking, well fed, and inspired. Will definitely be back.

I'd been a little wary after reading some of the reviews, but I shouldn't have worried. From the minute we arrived at reception, until the time we were checking out...perfection. We had a glass of champagne when we checked in, and were given a gorgeous box of choccies and another bottle of champagne to have in our cabin

We stayed at Eaglereach last weekend and had a fabulous time. We arrived late, after driving from Queensland it was about 7.45 when we arrived and even although reception close time was 7pm there was still a receptionist waiting to check us in with a friendly smile and a complimentary glass of bubbles.

After reading some of the reviews on trip advisor I was in two minds about booking . Some of the negative feedback had me confused ! Having seen the many adverts in " Holidays for Couples" I decided to take the risk and book . Well what a surprise !! We arrived in pouring rain and had to drive the fairly windey road up to the top of the mountain, a bit hairy but we arrived intact
My husband had stayed here about 6 years ago and loved it, so brought me for a weekend-away. I loved the bush setting, the weather was superb with terrific views over the valley every day. We took up all our food up with us and cooked breaky and dinner on the BBQ. My husband also tried out the spa. Within minutes of arriving, we had visiting wallaroos and were glad we'd spent $5 at reception to buy the proper pellets for them, they came right up and ate from our hand which was a new experience for my English husband! Also spotted wallabies, lots of birds and one large tree spider in our bathroom, who was most decent about being caught in a tea-towel for release back in the bush where he belongs :) We both work like crazy dogs in corporate jobs in Sydney and it was terrific to enjoy peace, quiet, air and views, plus take in some of the bush walks. We took a few fav kitchen utinsils which I'd recommend (although the kitchen was fine), bread, pantry staples, condiments plus all our fresh food. We also took a Playstation with us with movies/shows saved for evenings by the fire (and gaming for my husband) - very easy to hook it up to the plasma already in the lodge. I'm withVodafone and had no phone coverage but could text; my husband is with Telstra and he had fun net access etc on his smart phone. I did loads of reading and just enjoyed being outside in the sun with a super view. Our lodge was perfect for couple or family with 2-3 primary school aged kids. We asked about other lodges for more people and there's loads of options. We stayed 3 nights and I'd happily stay for up to 5. I'm already planning a return visit. Highly recommend Eaglereach.

My Partner and I went away and must say the most peaceful, clean, unspoilt hide away so far. The food was great, the people, the local resident Kangaroo's and the amazing breathtaking views you can stare at all day. Was followed up on arrival times and stayed in touch from booking to arrival - muchly appreciate that, service with a smile. Will be back very soon bringing the kids! We stayed in the Gallery and I must say if the owners ever wanted to sell it they need to call me first!!!
