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.

TIP take own travel cot / high chair etc for lodge if travelling with baby - believe each lodge privately owned so some may have more kit than others, but go prepared and then won't be caught short

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
Our cabin was The Gallery and it was lovely. Clean and spacious with the most breathtaking view. The kitchen had all the things we needed. Our spa was undercover so the rain was not a bother at all. We watched the sun come up, from the spa with Kangaroos right near us. The breakfast was simple, but delicious. Fresh fruit, porridge and fresh yogurt, all little extras. Our dinner on Saturday night was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful, the service was fast and the food was delish. It's a romantic setting, but not over the top fancy. We both felt very comfortable in jeans. Our massages were heaven.
I would not hesitate to come back, both with the kids and again as a romantic weekend. Thanks so much for everything. It really was just what we needed. :)

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.

Our room was spacious and clean with a very comfy king sized bed, black and white ensuite with really modern round hand basin and everything you could think of to make our stay enjoyable.
Good sized TV, mini bar and even a microwave.

We had a hot breakfast in the Bistro which came as a lovely surprise because as well as having all the normal fresh fruits, Toasts, bacon, eggs, sausages, hash browns, tomatoes’ and mushrooms the English chef had made porridge with spicy fruits which was just right for the chilly mountain air.

We walked the many trails and saw an amazing variety of birds however it was the Kangaroo’s and Wallaby’s that stole the day. The native animals are in abundance at Eaglereach and so good to see them in their natural habitat and all looking so healthy and strong. After our walk we had a massage and then back to our room for a hot spa and couldn’t resist a small nap.

We went to the Bistro for dinner and enjoyed having our first glass of red in front of the open fire. Our meal was excellent, well cooked and inexpensive. We each had two courses which cost $86.

We will be returning to Eaglereach and next time will take some friends and may even take advantage of one of their 3 night packages. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

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
We were offered a glass of champagne on arrival and given the keys to out cottage named "Bilby"
Well it was far from what I had expected. Modern clean and we were lucky and had the whole cottage to ourselves. 3 large bedrooms with 3 bathrooms The Spa outside was the icing on the cake Even in the pouring rain We went to the restuarant that night ,it was nice club style food,
We decided we would get a pizza Yum ! A BBQ hamper and Picnic hamper for the meals for the next 2 nights the restuarant was closed . As that was one of the negatives that I had read about ,the fact that it was closed on Sunday and Monday nights , but it didn't bother us we had brought along a few additional food items which we cooked up in our lovely little kitchen Fully equipped and for us more romantic .Don't forget your own Wine cheese and bickies
We woke each morning to a spectaculur view .We had kangaroos on our deck . Totally Tranquil
We hired bikes and played tennis all excellent . I couldn't fault the resort . Apparently each cottage is styled differently. I would highly recommend the Bilby if it is available.
I am so glad I took a chance and ignored some of the silly comments I had read . I loved my stay at Eaglereach
Thankyou Lee Doyle and all the staff for making our stay Special

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!!!
Food was good but we didn't like the vegetarian risotto :-) That's about all that was not excellent!.

“Tranquil and relaxing”

Reviewed 17 January 2013


Booked to stay over New Year's and we weren't disappointed. Fantastic place to get away from it all, yet not too far away from Sydney.

The spa lodge had everything we could ask for, and the spa itself was sublime.

We loved everything about this place, especially the close encounters with the wildlife. The insects do take a bit of getting used to, but once you remember you are in the middle of the bush, it makes sense that you will be sharing your verandah with a Christmas beetle or three!

Breakfast was good, the standard fare as any other hotel. We didn't dine at the restaurant, opting instead for the take away pizza option one night, and our own food the other nights.

Service was great. One of the guys even offered to help my hubby change the tire after a puncture.

We loved our stay and will definitely be back again.

A stay with family or as a couples retreat, this resort offers what you are looking after. There is seclusion for those wanting a hideaway and plenty of activities for those after an active holiday.
Reception was accomodating in booking the activities and the breakfast included plenty to feed the biggest appetite.
We were there to undertake skydiving in singleton and found Eaglereach a central location to maitland and singleton. Great activities to keep us active around our jump schedule. A great location for all.

This is my second trip to Eaglereach this time as a family a 4 yr old and a 5 month old girl.
We we lucky to get a 3 bedroom 3 shower cabin which was plenty of room and the view over the valley was unbelievable we had a least 10 kangaroos hanging around over our 3 nite stay everyday.
Hire a golf buggy for a 4 hrs its heaps of fun if you have kids and go yabbie hunting at black snake swamp!! been from the coast its the perfect get away we felt like the only people there at times so if you want get away from it all this is the place.
I not sure if you can request a certain cabin we stayed in the Billby and couldnt fault it you know your in for sometime special as you can see the view from the front door over the valley.
The only minor thing was the cover on the spa it took all my power to lift it off maybe i need to lift weights but talking to the maintance guy he reckons it will get replaced soon.
All the staff at the front desk were super helpful also.

"Great family escape"

Reviewed 8 January 2013

We recently stayed at the resort after a hectic Xmas/New Year festivities. We were looking forward to a relaxing break and the resort had plenty to offer.

Eaglereach is a short drive outside of Maitland through picturesque farmlands and rural properties. All the staff we met during our stay were very friendly, which makes for a pleasant change. Furthermore you are given a glass of bubbly on check-in to kick start your holiday.

We had booked a 2 bedroom family lodge but were upgraded to a 3 bedroom spa lodge. You should have seen the smiles on everyone faces. The view of the valley from the back veranda was just stunning, and there were also no less than 20 kangaroos resting under the trees in our backyard!

You can do lots or do little during your stay, it's entirely up to you as the resort offers many non-motorised activities to suit the young and the young at heart. I thought this was a relaxing break...

The only negative note is that whilst this is an eco resort, they don't offer any recycling facility.

All-in-all we had a great time.

Not to mention complimentary wine on arrival in the bar area, as no hassle for us two but room was getting cleaned as the last guests in our lodge went over their checkout time. Like I said waiting with complimentary wine was jus perfect for us and we were impressed with this service, as it was service beyond expectations . Meals were lovely , alot of fun activities, lots of wildlife ( even they were content and comfortable at eaglereach . My partner enjoyed the day 2; breakfast , tennis, massage , 2 hour buggy hire , rainforest walk topped off with a dip in pool then finished our nite of with 2 main course out on balcony looking at kangaroos down below and pretty birds flying around .

A great location high on the hill and set in the beautiful Aussie bush.
My wife and I escaped the kids 14 and 18 for some much needed couple time.
Staying in early Dec 2012 we experienced all the seasons in the 2 1/2 days we were there.
Our accommodation was in the 6 roomed Jindalee resort complex with spa,pool table share kitchen and many friendly Kangaroos.
Meeting Emma at reception we were made to feel relaxed straight away.After a quick rundown of activities and resort location we headed to the room with our chockies and champagne.
Temp had hit about 40 C but not to worry the room had a great AC and out the back a hot tub which got a pretty fair run on our stay.
After heating up in the spa it was off to the pool to cool off and do a spot of reading.
Dinner was served with a bit of pre arrival input between the Chef Rob and my wife, regarding a gluten free meal
The same for breakfast, not a problem and the biggest slices of Gluten free bread i think we have seen.
Dinner on Sun was self Catered as the restaurant was closed and was washed down with a nice bottle of red.
Breaky buffet was yummy and plenty of Gluten free tucker.
Activities where a plenty although due to rain and heat tennis was given a miss but maybe next time.
Try the coffee sold at the reception pretty good.
This spot was great if you need to get away and recharge and finish that book you have been trying to read for the last 6 months.
It would be a great spot in the winter with a group of friends all in the Jindalee resort, fire up the indoor fire place rack the balls and finish off in the spa.
The only hiccup was our room No1 had a mysterious smell that would not go away so after a quick trip back to reception and a word to Emma another room free from any smell was organised and we were back on track.
This resort caters for all types young or old you just do what you want to do and use what you want to use.
Staff where great and always helpful.
Room Tip: BBQ available at resort and self catering is a good Idea unless you want to go out for a drive

“Weekend with views and Kangaroos”


Reviewed 4 November 2012


We have just arrived back from 2 great nights at the Eaglereach Resort.
Our lodge was the Rocky Mountain and we could not have been happier, the views went on for ever, we regularly had 10-15 Kangaroos in the back which was amazing. The lodge itself is spacious, the kitchen clean and more of a homely feel than that of a hotel. If you want sleek and modern stick to the City. I felt everything was in keeping and nothing could have made our stay better.
We ate in the Bistro twice, the staff were friendly and again a very nice setting to eat. The menu was simple however the food was cooked well and reasonably priced.
You have to try and catch some Yabbies, we found out the best time is early in the morning or late in the afternoon, we even had a bite from a turtle! I think the resort suits all scenarios, we came for a quiet couple weekend however we already are thinking it would be great to share with a group of friends, we do not have children yet however kids would love it too so all in all I'd reccomend a visit.
We checked out a local vineyard, it's about 25 mins away. It is a small family owned but we got to sit down with the owner, taste some wine and get a personal service. He even allowed us to drive off limits through the vineyards and by the river for some good photos and a quiet picnic spot. Wine is good quality and great value, plus the owner is a very nice chap! It's called Camyr Allyn nr East Gresford.
Room Tip: Im sure all rooms are great however Rocky Mountain won't disappoint. Buy some Roo food from Reception

Had a girls weekend away here, amazing views, great food, spa on the deck, staff were lovely, massage was relaxing and pool was very enjoyable! this is a great spot for family trip away, couples romantic getaway or if you are into lots of activiities like bushwalking, kayaking, mountain bikes etc. Price is very reasonable too. Us girls just relaxed, talked all weekend! Ate and drank and enjoyed the pool and spa. the breakfast buffet was delicious. apparently the place was booked out the weekend but you would never know - all the cabins (houses/lodges) are spread out so no noise and very secluded. Only caution is I would not advise driving up there in the dark. The last 5 kms is up a very steep narrow road and in the dark I think well at least be cautious!

Previously we have stayed in Wanji and Rocky Mountain. We can't make up our minds as to which is the best as they are all amazing in their own ways. Every time that we drive up the hill and get to reception the stress disolves and the relaxation begins. The reception staff are always friendly and the glass of sparkling upon arrival always goes down a treat. I love how well equipped the cabins are, at no point ever do we feel like we have forgotten something as it is all there when we arrive.

This has to be one of the Hunter Valley's best kept secrets. We have been coming to Eagle Reach since we have been married in 2001. The views that abound this resort are beyond words. The service you receive is always 5 stars and the staff will go out of their way to assist your queries. We have seen the improvements and the other little things the staff have done over the years to make this place unforgettable. From the start when you enter the reception to the time you leave, you will feel relaxed and ready again to face what reality has in store for you. I can not fault this place/service/food/surrounds. If I could I would give them 6 stars.

Yet again, our stay at Eaglereach has delivered a fantastic experience! Eaglereach offers a relaxing and indulgent break away at a surprisingly low cost for the quality of lodges and facilities supplied. My husband and I have been visiting Eaglereach since 2005 and at least 8 stays later, the shine has not worn off. If anything, we seek reasons to return more often. We've stayed in the Jindalee complex and in many of the lodges as a couple, with kids, with a group of friends, as part of a conference I hosted and on a girls weekend away. I love the fact that there's a restaurant onsite and also the opportunity to self-cater in the furnished lodges with full kitchens. The views from the lodges are amazing, as my photos will show, and the fact that kangaroos are everywhere and literally hop up to your front door gives guests the opportunity to get up close to the friendly wildlife. Take advantage of the activities if you can manage to drag yourself away from your personal outdoor hot tub or the warmth of your fireplace. There's so much to do without ever leaving the resort. We've caught yabbies and cooked them up in garlic butter on the BBQ, taken rainforest and cliff-side walks, put the outdoor gym to the test and relaxed for hours in the resort pool. The staff have always been fantastic and always happy to assist. Once, the temp on our spa wasn't working and within one hour it was fixed by maintenance and ready for a dip! Upon re-reading my review I feel it sounds like an ad but it's not, it's a genuine review by a genuine return customer who read a few negative comments left by other guests and wanted to reassure future guests that the resort is well worth visiting. I hope the pics will help convince you how great the place is!

I booked a weekend away as a surprise for my g/f and it was a huge hit. The drive up to the resort from the road was long and i thought i had taken a wrong turn, but once we arrived at the resort it took both our breath away, from the view out the window, to the hopping kangaroos along the road side. It seemed like an age before we got to reception and when we arrived we were greeted with sparkling wine and a smiling face. Also, this is when my g/f found out about the massage i had booked for her the next morning, another win! We were then given a bottle of local sparkling and chocolates, a dinner voucher and told when breakfast was served, then we were pointed in the direction of our lodge, Silkwood. (the most private lodge) Again it was a 3 - 5 minute drive to our lodge from recption as this place is HUGE! But once we arrived and saw the view and the outdoor spa, we knew we were onto a winner. The lodge was older but spacious and very clean. We ate at the restaurant the first night and the food was a 3.5 out of 5 but very well priced. The 2nd night we took advantage of the hamper option (steak, sausages, bread and salad) and cooked at our lodge on the bbq and spent the night in front of the fire, (all firewood provided). I must say a highlight was sitting in the outdoor spa over looking the valley and watching the sunset or it could have been looking out the kitchen window seeing a kangaroo sitting there and then feeding him. We could not fault this place and would and have recommended this to friends already. We will be back in the warmer months to take advantage of their 4wd track and walking trails.

We have just returned from another wonderful weekend at Eaglereach. We have had a weekend at Eaglereach every year for the past five years. Why do we keep coming back? We have always found the staff friendly and very helpful. The first year we went there was flooding in the valley and we had to take a detour ( in the pouring rain) .The staff directed us via mobile ( with bad reception) and waited for us to arrive to greet us with champagne. It was after 10.00pm by this stage.
We always stay at the Jindalee Lodge as its great value, rooms are clean and comfortable, the balcony is spacious with lovely views over the Hunter Valley and the fire in the lounge room creates a very cosy atmosphere. It took us awhile to get the fire going but worth the wait. The staff were only too happy to help. We spent most of our time walking and taking in the stunning views over the Patterson Valley, mingling with the wildlife or at the lagoon- which is a great place for a picnic. You can kayak there too.
At dusk we head for the spa, sip on some bubbly and once again take in the stunning view- which includes the local wild life. I could spend hours in the spa watching the beautiful sunsets and the kangaroos and joeys grazing around me. The restaurant food is quite good. Breakfast was a generous buffet-which we ate whilst watching two beautiful red and blue rosellas fly around us. For dinner we had the salt and pepper squid,which was delicious and the duck was also good. We had a wonderful relaxing weekend and look forward to our next visit.

We're constantly amazed with the great welcome reception we get every time we arrive at Eaglereach. This our sixth trip in four years and the welcome reception provided by Paul, Carmen and Emma is just as special as the first time we stayed on the mountain. The glass of bubbles always sets the scene for our lovely romantic weekend away from the concrete jungle and hustle and bustle of city life. The wildlife, beautiful scenery, the cosy lodges and relaxed atmosphere is what Eaglereach is all about. What makes this place extra special are the international guests you get to chat to as you walk through the rain forrest or general walking trails and they say that they come here for the wonderful wildlife, as the kangaroos and the vast variety of birdlife, create a symphony of natural Australian beauty on your door step.

We would highly recommend Eaglreach for the perfect romantic getaway and make it a regular date twice a year.

I stayed at the resort during the recent school holidays and was delighted to find a peaceful, quiet hideaway so close to Sydney. The drive to get there was magnificent but when we reached the windy road up the mountain I was even more excited as we climbed to the top. It really is an eagle's reach! I believe the resort was well patronised yet the spread of the lodges gave the feeling we were the only ones present. I loved every minute of my stay- the friendly staff, the fireplaces, the wildlife, the walks, and oh, the views!
The restaurant cooked a fabulous breakfast (love the fluffy pancakes) and we enjoyed an evening meal as well. I chose the duck, which I loved, and complimented the chef on the night. I must make mention of the hot chocolate pudding as it was delicious.

I really didn't know what an eco resort was before I stayed. It's definitely not a slick, sterile city hotel and I'm sure it's not meant to be. This is a comfortable, relaxing, getaway oozing atmosphere where I was immediately at one with nature.

Enjoy the weather (whatever that turns out to be) and turn away from the worries of the world. I wouldn't call Eaglereach a resort- I'd call it an oasis. I can't wait to return.

We had a beautiful stay over Easter. To our suprise, upon arrival we learnt that we had been upgraded to a 3 bedroom lodge - The Bilby, which was fantastic. Accomodation was lovely, like a home away from home and also nice and clean.

Our view over the valley was absolutely stunning, totally breathtaking. We had Kangaroos hopping past our back deck every morning and we even had a gorgeous goanna stop by - our two boys, both aged under five loved seeing and interacting with the wildlife and they got to do so very frequently throughout our stay. The overall ambience of the place was complete tranquility and really gave us a chance to unwind. Although we were obviously aware of the presence of other guests, we always felt we were left alone to do our own thing and never felt we were sharing ameneties or activities with others, as everything is so dispersed.

The breakfast included in our rate was nice and above all, staff were so genuinely friendly and helpful (not overly friendly as when it begins to feel contrived).

We had a fantastic stay and we are recommending Eaglereach to all our friends who also have young children. Can't wait to go back!
Thanks!!
