Attended a wedding in the Hunter Valley and this hotel was recommended, we had a great stay, it was clean quiet and well equipped, the staff were efficient and friendly. The club next door was great for lunch after our journey. Will definitely visit again

Just one night while visiting for business. A very warm welcome, despite me being a bit late on checkin. The room was on the top floor on the side away from the road, quiet. Bed is clean and comfortable with room average size. The bathroom is compact and no bath.

We stayed 2 nights here - in town for concert in Hunter Valley. Best thing is location - right in heart of town. It does sit on busy road with a busy car park so you won't be here for the views. All staff we met were very helpful - printed off my bus pass to the winery that I...

Bed was really comfy! The room was a reasonable size with a lounge area and was very clean and tidy as was the rest of the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good location central to shops and only 10 mins from Pokolbin and some great wineries.

The Wine Inn has recently been upgraded and now has rooms and facilities equal to a chain hotel. Its located in Cessnock which is a short drive to the wineries and concert venues. It does not have a restaurant but there are many local eateries close by. There is transport to the wineries and venues available for groups

We needed to book accommodation at the last minute for a wedding and came across this little gem. First of all would love to thank the lovely staff. Our room was a good size, impeccably clean and the bathroom was spotless!! The 3 absolute 'must haves' on my check list. Location is convenient with Woolworth, Aldi and Big W less...

Not value for money! The website photos of the rooms are deceiving. The rooms are extremely small, the bathrooms are badly designed and not suitable for two people to use at one time. My understanding from the booking was that I had booked a Queen executive the same as what other guests in my party had booked. It seems their...

Hello M Gibson thank you for your review, I am sorry the rooms did not reach your expectations. Being a long weekend it was of course premium rates and may seem a little higher than usual. You had in fact booked an Executive King room which is a completely different set up to the Executive Queen. The bathrooms are different...

The motel was very basic, on the upside the staff were quite friendly and helpful. The motel is located right next to major shopping centres so not far to walk for anything you need. There is a lift so your not lugging luggage up the stairs. Room was set out well, bathroom had a large shower area so plenty of...

My Dads 70th birthday celebrations were ruined by their room being double booked with other people walking in on my dad while sleeping scaring the crap out of him. This set off a series of events ruining the weekend resulting in the cancellation of his birthday party the next day. With no apologies from the hotel. I'm furious.

unfortunately staff did make a mistake and i apologise for that. This incident also startled staff considerably and they could not have been more apologetic to the guest. Although a full refund was made i understand this will not have taken away the discomfort your father endured and i am very sorry that this incident occurred and caused such upset.
