Pleasant weekend

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 8 ladies enjoyed our stay at Monkey Farm Country House.

Luckily, we know each other very well, as the absence of ceilings for the bedrooms means that once one person is awake, everyone is awake.

The fire was lovely but not enough wood left and you surely can't expect people to pay for more wood....just tell them where the wood shed is.

I would like to return to this house in summer to enjoy the wide verandahs and nice pool.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Robyn and we're glad to hear that you and your friends enjoyed your weekend at Monkey Place! There is normally a supply of firewood sufficient for each night of your stay, however it is a shame that our out of hours service was not contacted as additional wood could certainly have been arranged for you. Thanks again Robyn and we'd love to welcome you again for a summer time pool stay! The team @ Unwind Hunter Valley

A bit of a let down

  • 3 of 5

The pool was beautiful, but a few things could have been better, one thing that stood out was there was no roofs on each bedroom, so it wasn't very private.The noise travelled into each room. Cobwebs everywhere and lots of spiders everywhere. The bedrooms where a bit dated. One problem we had not enough toilets in the house. We had 13 people stay. The gardens and outside areas where good. Also rooms where very hot. With a couple of improvement it would be a great house to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Angie. We're very sorry to hear that you were unhappy with a few things. The style of house and number of toilets are certainly as advertised so it's a shame you did not make yourself aware of the style and facilities when booking. We will certainly ensure that housekeeping check out the cobwebs you have mentioned; being a country property, at times webs are removed only for them to reappear within 48 hours! Monkey Place also has air-conditioning plus ceiling fans are available for cooling in all rooms. The team @ Unwind Hunter Valley

Cosy Rustic Charm

  • 5 of 5

Monkey Place Country House was so homely and beautiful. The layout made the kitchen and lounge area the focus. We enjoyed sitting by the pool/spa and the fire place at night was a cosy addition to the still cool spring nights. The beds were comfy and for a large group of 11 we were easily comforted by the generous rooms. The property managers were very helpful and allowed extra people to visit for lunch/afternoon. Would love to stay here again
