Are you planning a visit to our Resort or thinking about a trip to the Hunter Valley? Then this blog article is for you! We get lots of questions from guests wanting to know more information about some of our facilities as well as the Hunter Valley area in general. So we’ve addressed some of the most frequently asked questions!
What’s the best way to see the wineries?
There are many ways to tour the region’s wineries including on our very own double decker Lovedale Bus. Other options include a wine tour, private car or minibus, via bike or simply by driving yourself. There is no single best way and the option that’s best for you will depend on personal preference. We recommend speaking with our Concierge before or during your stay. Our Concierge can provide you with maps of the vineyards, book you on tours and of course give you insightful tips and recommendations!

Our 18 hole golf course is nearly 6,000 metres long; with an expansive lake, rolling hills and tree-lined fairways adding to the course’s natural beauty. It’s located within the resort grounds.

Our swimming pool is open daily from 6am to 9pm and is solar heated to around 27 degrees. The pool is approximately 20m x 25m so is large enough to swim some laps or for a relaxing dip. Deck chairs around the pool area offer the chance to unwind with a good book
We also offer sports courts and tennis courts for the active guests! The courts can be floodlight at night and rackets and balls are available to hire from reception.
Onsite dining options include our signature restaurant, Redsalt and the more casual eatery; The Lovedale.
