Beautifully presented property that felt like we had come home ! Sensational set out for a large group with lovely big dining room, huge living room, pool table in the garage and heavenly comfortable beds.

Great location and very roomy and comfy. Excellent communication from the hosts - very responsive. Nice little boutique winery on-site and the property is a stop on the IHOP bus service. We enjoyed our stay, but the property is very tired and in need of an overhaul so we didn’t feel it was worth the money we paid for our two nights.

Thanks very much for your lovely feedback regarding our property and the location. We are really glad you were able to enjoy our cellar door Stomp and use our local services. We are disappointed you feel unahppy about the costs. We are constantly reviewing our prices and updating our cottages so they are value to our guests. Our smaller cottages are priced on 2 guests however our larger cottages such as Settlers are based on 4. We hope to see you again and thank you for your feedback.

Love the loft, the kids were happy in their own beds up there. Heating was great, very warm and cozy. Beautiful location, not too close to the other cottages and a short stroll to the cellar door.

We had a lovely stay at the property. Our son, an infant, loved wandering the property and watching the birds, ducks and horses. The scenery is beautiful and the property had everything we needed. There was no portacot or highchair but we easily abrought our own and no netflix but we were well entertained. There was a lovely selection of books to read, and a fire pit and bbq which was a real treat.

Hi Belinda, Thank you for the lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed our property and were able to relax with the wildlife for a few days. Your son would have loved all the new experiences. We are sorry about the portacot..we do have one on hand but didn't realise you needed it but it is available for next time. We will look into getting a high chair also. We have recently installed wifi so chrome cast is available for movies however we will look at netflix also. We are happy you were able to relax in the cottage. We look forward to seeing you again and thanks for all the lovely communication!

Fantastic location, comfortable stay!

Pros: Location, comfortable beds, self-catered, quiet, fire pit, jacuzzi - what more could you want!
Cons: Perhaps update decor over time. Option for breakfast hamper at additional cost would also be great. Nothing really to complain about!
Location: Wine, wine, more wine! Cellar door about 15 meters away!
Amazing location in the heart of the wine country. Hosts go over and above to ensure your stay is great. Fire pit is a great extra option! Rooms are a good size and have storage, beds are comfy and warm. Rooms all have heaters available too! Jacuzzi was a lovely bonus we were not expecting. Decor is a tad dated, but everything is in great condition and very clean and tidy. Would absolutely recommend this place as the best value option for a group stay in the Hunter Valley!

The cabin was excellent, booked at absolutely the last minute we were pleasantly surprised. The outlook and atmosphere were amazing, there was plenty of birdlife, some kangaroos in the early morning and horses in ajoining paddock to keep out 1yo amused. We will be back for sure. Oh and the easter bunny present and aircon already on for our arrival was appreciated.

A Good Option

Madigan Wine Country Cottages are very well place if your touring the Hunter Region. We found the cottages very comfortable and had everything we needed for our weekend away. The Barn was well set up for families.

Just a port in a storm

Pros: Pet friendly, convenient, pleasant enough.
Cons: Seen better days
Location: We are locals
We were at Madigan while having our floor replaced at home, so we were very happy to find a pet friendly property in a nearby location for 3 nights. The cottages are in a delightful setting with acres of manicured lawn to walk around and 2 pretty dams, although our view was interrupted by a massive treatment plant which could easily be hidden by some low shrubs. Money needs to be spent inside and out and the tariff could still kept reasonable. There were old and rusting vine supports with no vines outside our cottage, Cellar Door, and an archway for climbers in the same condition. Inside the bed and pillows were quality and comfortable and the shower was lovely, full and instantaneous. I only give 3 stars for cleanliness because there is a leaky pipe in the kitchen with water flowing down to the sump, and a general somewhat griminess. The keycode box fell off when we tried to get in the first time, but the key came down with it so we weren't locked out. It seems the previous guests had broken it, but we were not told in advance. But, the cottage met our needs. We would have been a bit disappointed if it had been part of a holiday trip though. Rating the hotel staff was not possible as the owners and staff are off site, so I gave that 3 as well as it is a required field.
