TravelPod Member ReviewsPeppers Convent, Hunter Valley Pokolbin
Peppers Convent neared perfection as accommodation. The rooms were beautifully apportioned and decorated, as were the communal areas. Breakfast was splendidly generous and varied and the staff were all tremendously helpful and friendly. The slight downside was the wi-fi which refused to work and the minimal number of television channels available in the room, but these are minor complaints about an overall excellent experience.
