“Country hospitality at its best”
Reviewed 18 April 2008

A spontaneous decision to tack the Hunter Valley onto a business trip in Sydney saw us madly searching for accomodation. It turns out a KD Lang concert at Tempus Two winery had booked out most of the valley but , as fate would have it, we stumbled across the quaint and convenient heritage-listed Branxton Hotel.

No longer a hotel, it has no liquor license and only serves breakfast, the Branxton has had a major reno and been reborn as an upmarket B&B in the midst of the Hunter fringe town of Branxton. Away from more popular tourist towns of Pokolbin and Maitland, but still an easy 10-20 minute drive to most wineries we found The Branxton more than adequate for our needs.

Our room, the King Arthur, contained a very comfy queen bed, fluffy bathrobes, cable tv, chandeliers and opened out to a large verandah overlooking green pastures. We woke each morning to the Cock crowing and the cows mooing and were perhaps more fortunate than those in the more expensive front rooms which overlook a truck riddled highway.

The communal bathrooms proved a tad too popular at times but waits were short and water pressure high. I'm not sure how cold it might get in there in Winter but I think the fluffy bathrobes might come in handy !

Breakfast is served in a charming traditional style dining room and consists of lovely fresh country fare, along with friendly and attentive service from Penny and her staff.

All in all a great find and one that we will definately recommend to others. Better than 4 star but not 5 ( which is overused anyway)
