Our visit was too attend a friends funeral. The Motor Inn staff were very caring and helpful. The property is centrally located and the rooms were clean but a bit dark. The room we had was very quiet which is what we needed. We would recommend this location for visitors and would return to the Wine Country Motor Inn, if...

I have lived in Cessnock forever, and although from the outside the place doesn't look very appealing, it was hands down one of the best experiences of my life, food was sensational!!! We had two entrees, a main and dessert and could not fault anything!! We have already booked to come back next weekend for Mother's Day! I highly recommend...

Hi muscles87 what a great review! Thankyou, in relations to the food comments i think you are talking about entice bistro at the Leagues Club next door. They do have a great menu and we get a lot of good feedback in relation to their food :)

Was put up here for work and loved the room. Nice and spacious, staff were great. Breakfast option is useful, but I would recommend going to cafe for a more suitable breakfast. I will most likely stay again when/if I am staying in Cessnock again.

I'm surprised that this accommodation has a 4 star rating! I can only assume that ratings for motor inns are different than for other accommodation! The old, shabby decor desperately needs updating as does the noisy old air conditioner. The bathroom had a foul, mouldy odour coming from the drains which was very unpleasant. On the up side, the staff...

We stayed here on Saturday 16th April, 2016 to attend the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR concert featuring Jimmy Barnes at the Hunter Valley. I booked direct through the hotel and secured a better rate than I could otherwise find on a third party booking website. Dwayne handled my booking with ease and provided valuable information on Rover Coaches whom we...

Overnight trip for to see a Hunter Valley concert. The room was clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was also just the right size, clean and functionable. We didn't watch a lot of tv but the internet was great for Netflix. Great for a short stay on a budget.

I was attending a lunchtime Wedding, and originally booked 2 nights, however my plans changed and I needed to check in at 11am on the day of the wedding.

We stayed for 3 nights over Easter. 1st and 2nd of our stay the electricity kept shutting off in our room (115). This lead to quite uncomfortable temperature in the room due to the lack of aircon. Sockets didnt work and as a result our phones didn't charge which was a bit of an inconvenience, we were lucky we didn't...

Wine Country Motor Inn had friendly professional and helpful staff. The room was comfortable and had all you need for your night stay. The air con was a little noisy, but we were still able to get a good night sleep. The local supermarkets are just up the road and it's a short driving distance to the vineyards. Perfect location!
