Help Please! Looking for Resort with Great Food

My new wife and I will be in Sydney (from Canada) for a Christmas trip. We have some free time from Jan 1-4. We are looking for a great resort/Inn with the emphasis on lodging and most importantly, food.
We will have a car but will not want to drive more than 500KM.
Thanks in advance...

  1. I haven't stayed here but it has had great reviews in magazines and newspaper articles. Kims Beach Hideaway. It is only an hour from Sydney and the beach there is very nice. The food gets good reviews too but a google search will probably show some reviews.

    1. Thanks Jilly! I looked at Kims online and does look great. However I have been thinking about Peppers Guest House or would you recommend Peppers Convent?.

      1. We haven't stayed there either, but the Hunter Valley is great for wine and food. It will be hot there at that time of year, but a place with a pool would be good.
        In the last few years the area has developed and many restaurants at wineries have good reviews.

          If you choose to visit the Hunter Valley, my wife and I stayed at Tower Lodge last month and it's a wonderful place. Re food onsite, breakfasts were lovely and delicious.
