Stayed overnight here in October 2014. Room was ok size and clean. As an Advantage plus member I felt ripped off by only getting a 10% discount on dinner rather than the "standard" (there was a single "degustation" style menu available with the full discount) but that seems to be a new trend in the Hunter area. Hotel was average...

The hotel is 30 minute drive from Pokolbin. Booked 1 week before long weekend for $140, where every accommodation in Pokolbin is over $250 (most are $500 per night). The hotel construction / building is really a country motel, meaning ground level only, car parking outside your room. The rooms are all newly renovated. Rooms are quite large for a...

We stayed here while clearing out hubby's storage shed and this was the best placed accommodation for us. Rooms were clean and well looked after, housekeeping should be commended as the room was always done beautifully. Have to agree about TV, but hell if not much on the idiot box is the worst thing then you are doing quite well!...

Stayed here while my partner attended a wedding. In a really quiet town with not much to do or see in the immediate vicinity - but it is near a big Woolies and across the road from some fast food joints. Clean, modern rooms - couldn't fault anything about my stay here, except that the TV only gets channel 9...

We stayed for two nights for a wedding in the area. The staff were very nice and we found the room to be very clean and larger than we were expecting. The hotel is within walking distance to McDonalds, Oporto and a local pub, only downside was they don't offer room service.
