Hope Estate, Cessnock Reviews
Been here 3 times, whenever go there i ve never been greeted or acknowledged by staff. Is this coincidence? When asked for some help, then just the menu was handed over without any explanation. This was exactly same experience for last 3 visits. Am not sure what is going on here? The one star is for their beer, very good quality. It is shame that they provide such a bad service. We could have buy lots of beer if the service was better. We really liked the beer but just did not want to spend more money in that place.
Have adjusted review . Cant ask for more than an apology an explanation and an incentive to come back. Thanks and we will try again next year.Cheese and chocolate festival. Hope less. Will be asking for refund. No cheese and no chocolate. $25 entry fee false advertising and warrants refund.
3 of us went on a wine tour on Saturday we toured many wineries and the boot was starting to fill with wines liquors and all sorts then we ventured into hope. The lady serving wines was fantastic as I went to the beer section. I even mentioned I was the nominated driver and was tried to be sold a pallet of beers I said the the lady I can't possibly drink all that and drive! Still no samples! We are quite happy to buy we have a combined income of $300000++ we have no issues buying wines or beers if we like them. I beg the owners of hope to tour the vineyards cellar doors and breweries and see their hospitality cause there was none on show at hope on Saturday! I always ask when I go to a different area or country which are the most popular beers/drinks cause then you really cut to the chase! I was told about 3 at this time I spoke to the wine tasters and told them I was doing no good at the beer section so they joined me! Then the 2nd beer that was the most popular blew it's keg and had to be changed! When she came back I and fellow tasters were leaning the bar she was filling the bucket to clear the line of air and beer and we got covered in beer froth! No sorry or anything at all it felt like she liked what she just did! I have run many bars establishments pubs restaurants and cafes. Unfortunately a majority of reviews of hope here are woeful... I suggest a change of management or owners the service the lustre the atmosphere is deploreable . Unfortunately like most businesses in this predicament they fail to see what's wrong reckon they can't change don't know how too or are too stubborn to do so. .. Other wineries/breweries in the area have a fun atmosphere plenty of lighting happy joyful staff who can't do enough the beer/wines liquors flow freely all with great reviews you won't find this with hope! Owners feel free to contact me with ways of changing the poor service and reviews.
Went to the cheese and chocolate festival, and even though we missed the traffic chaos, the stalls they had were either closed or running out of stock with 3 hours to go. If I could give you zero star rating, I would, due to the fact of their cowardly act of deleting so many negative facebook reviews to save their own neck. They've blocked me on facebook, and probably so many others. You should be ashamed and embarrassed. In reply to your response, are you serious?? There were so many bad reviews that have been deleted. I know I've been blocked from making any further comments on YOUR Facebook page, and undoubtedly many more people have been served the same discontent! You claim it was a success, yet it failed to satisfy so many! I understand that a small number of people have commented that they enjoyed it, but the fact still remains, hundreds didn't! It was advertised as a " cheese and chocolate festival "( no beer or wine advertised on your entry tickets) but upon arrival, we found only a few chocolate stalls still open, very limited cheese tasting due to sold out stock, and food vendors closed, and this was around 2pm. We came for cheese and chocolate. If I wanted to taste beer and wine, I would of gone on a beer and wine tasting tour! So, we travel the 5 hour round trip, spend $150 entry,( yes, I shouted 4 other adults) and left a little disappointed, and you offer ME a $10 voucher? This WILL be taken up with the department of fair trading! What has really hit a nerve, is the discontent you have shown all your unsatisfied patrons. Only a full refund to all of those disgusted patrons and a public apology on ALL of your social media accounts would be the only way you could even remotely start to restore any of your reputation, but I think its going to be tall order, the choice is yours.
Hope was part of our wine tour. Beautiful views from the upper balconies. Also this is where The Farmer wants a Wife is partly made. We loved the beer paddle. Great atmosphere. Great tour
