We stayed 3 nights with our two young girls, and really enjoyed the peaceful surrounds and the warm hospitality of Marie and Mark, their dog Lola and the various wildlife. Perhaps best described as a cross between a B&B and a motel, it has a really nice feel with lush bush garden setting. The weather was hot, so the pool...

Thanks for bringing your family to stay with us here at Elfin Hill. It certainly is a lovely place, Mark & I really enjoy our business and the guests we become to know. I love the drawings that Maddie did for me, I think I will pop them into a little frame and have them up in the pavilion for...

I stayed here with my family for a short holiday just after Christmas 2015. We were all very impressed by the location (right in the heart of Pokolbin and so close to the Hunter Valley Gardens - which we planned to visit), peaceful and serene environment, room cleanliness, and last but not least the exceptional hospitality of Marie and her...

We stayed here in 2014 and visiting Hunter Valley again this was first choice. Excellent again. Hosts very friendly and helpful. They have improved the rooms to give more privacy. Being able to use very good shared kitchen facilities is a bonus. Lovely breakfast again. We will go back again

We stayed at Elfin Hill after bidding for the two nights at a charity auction. We took our young baby with us and because of this Marie the owner upgraded us to the Loft room - bedroom upstairs with small kitchen, dining table, lounge downstairs. The beds were really comfortable, the kitchen was enough for us to cook dinner and...

We stayed in Elfin Hill for a couple of nights while we were in the Hunter Valley. It is a beautiful location and hotel. The owners are delightful. The room was excellent and the bed may have been the most comfortable ever slept in. There is also a great pool. A very enjoyable experience and recommended 100%

Thank you for taking the time to write your lovely review. The beds certainly are comfortable, so many people comment to us on that subject. The pool is so refreshing at this time of the year, just what you need after a day out amongst the wineries.

I travelled to Elfin Hill alone to have some time out from the city. Marie the owner greeted me with the most heart warming and beautiful smile. I immediately felt welcome and relaxed.

A wonderful country retreat suitable for groups of friends, families and or couples who want something a little less commercial and looking for quiet and charm. We had seven families stay in comfortable cottages. By day we toured wineries and by night we congregated in Elfins communal areas to enjoy conversation and the amazing wines of The Hunter.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful elevated property in the heart of the grape growing district of Pokolbin with fabulous views of the surrounding vineyards and the Brokenback mountain range.Quietly tucked away yet so close to all the very best that the wine region has to offer including only minutes to 4 world class golf courses.Recently refurbished and upgraded hotel style rooms are very comfortable with everything you need to make your stay easy and enjoyable with large glass french doors opening out onto your private veranda and perfectly framing the stunning vista. The separate loft/villa cottage provides a luxurious space with full amenities.The views from here are also fantastic with doors that open out onto the garden and courtyard area.Our small table grape vineyard and our neighbours extra large Chardonnay & Shiraz vineyard and farm animals complete the picture. The salt water swimming pool along side the BBQ area and the guest pavilion provides a refreshing end to a day out amongst the many cellar doors, restaurants, cafes, gardens etc during the summer months. The pavilion is the perfect place to relax and watch the sun go down. ... more   less
