TravelPod Member ReviewsThe 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.

An electronic vote counting system plus an option to show your dislike for all candidates on the ballot paper "NOTA" - none of the above) and not make it informal are features we should adopt in Australia. I wonder if NOTA ended up being the majority pick in an election what would be the outcome ? Education is paramount with all seeking some tertiary study. Many ...
... we were here James recommended going to the winery and trying their award winning moscato. We trotted down and got persuaded into trying a few cheeky reds and whites too! Why not, eh!? Next up we were taken to our final winery, which was a Scottish owned winery called Capercaillie. Here a really friendly young Aussie girl took us through their wines and they had a really nice red called 'the clan'. It was really great and as Kirsty was buying some wine here I decided to buy ...
... fires will continue to rage. In good news we received quite a few compliments on our coaching this week. It was good to hear as neither of us is exactly Beth Tweddle, clearly all that time dedicated to the cheese is paying off. The birthday girl was informed of part 2 of her birthday week, a trip to The Hunter Valley AKA wine country. So the evening was spent doing 2 hours of packing to ensure colour co ordinated clothes for the weekend. Part ...
