“Elfin Hill-loft villa”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Lovely one night stay in the loft villa which feels like you're in your own bit of paradise, so peaceful and the views are amazing! Marie's hospitality was great, she made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of choices for breakfast which was included and a separate lounge area to use if you're in the cabins. Our 5 year old son loved running around the field and meeting the chickens, cat and dog. It's about a 10 minute drive to the hunter valley gardens but there are a couple of vineyards in walking distance.

Room Tip: Highly recommend the loft villa!

The loft/villa certainly does provide excellent accommodation, slightly separate from the other rooms so it is was perfect for you with your son. Lovely to hear that you enjoyed the property and our animals., the chickens are so lovely to watch.
Thank you for your review.

We have just returned from our 2nd great stay at Elfin Hill. We are part of a group of 10 that stay here for our annual reunion weekend. Marie is a generous and welcoming host who wants you to feel at home.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable and there is a fantastic large common room that can be used by groups. We all have our breakfast here together and we were able to use it also for our self- catered Xmas in July dinner one night. You are also able to use the kitchen and there is an electric fire and comfy lounges. In warmer weather you are also able to use the barbie and pool and sit outside and enjoy the peace.
We would certainly recommend Elfin Hill and look forward to returning.

We arrived in the most idyllic surroundings and were welcomed by Marie, our wonderful host!
We felt so welcome and at home. Marie showed us around and she helped us by giving some advise about the area.
Hunter Valley was brilliant and we enjoyed every moment in the area and at Elfin Hill. We give all of our recommendations and wish Marie and her family all the best. We hope we get the chance of going back - if we ever get to Hunter Valley again, we know for sure where we'd want to stay!

Our host was Marie who is so warm and welcoming, she really made our stay an absolute pleasure.
Our room (for my group of friends) was fantastic and all small touches had been thought of.
Everything was clean and efficient, the breakfast was great and everyone who worked there was friendly and the location is stunning.
For a weekend away with the girls, the loft/villa was the perfect place to stay.

We booked Elfin Hill as our selected accomodation while we were in the Hunter Valley for CMC Rocks the Hunter. It sits atop a hill with the most stunning scenery and much needed tranquility. Our host Marie was so welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was ample with a fantastic selection. The large atrium room which is available to sit in for breakfast or just to chill out with friends on the lounges with the fire going. We loved it. We wished we had more time to see some of the Hunter Valley. There were 3 of us girls together in a room and there was still plenty of space. Would love to come back here again and if we come back for CMCRTH next year this will definitely be the place we will book.

Thanks ladies for your review. Elfin Hill is an excellent place to stay for the concert weekends as we are so close to the venues and with the bus stopping at the gate certainly makes it easy.
Look forward to having you back again at the next CMC

Elfin Hill is a gorgeous little B&B style motel set on an beautifully elevated 6 acre property just minutes from the main winery drag of Pokolbin. The owners Marie and Mark are so welcoming and extremely accommodating, nothing is too big of an ask and they have a genuine interest in making your stay as comfortable as possible, they were even kind enough to help us out with our car troubles.

The rooms are quaint and peaceful, the beds are comfy and Mark and Marie cook up a mean breakfast - i highly recommend the Breakfast Bruschetta with Poached eggs! Yum!
Waking up to gorgeous views of the property and enjoying breakfast on the pavilions deck area looking over the vineyards, or enjoying a bit of wine and cheese watching the sun go down over the valley and playing a little catch with Lola, Marie & Mark's beautiful blue healer.
Our fave spot to sit and enjoy the sun was on the deck chairs down on the grass, we made good use of those chairs :)

If you prefer to stay in rather than go out for dinner, Elfin Hill has a commercial style kitchen that guests are encouraged to use as well as a beautiful fairy light lit BBQ area.
The Lounge room in the pavilion has couches, books, a stereo, a TV and a fire place that that just radiates cosy country side relaxation.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Elfin Hill and will absolutely be back again!

Thanks again Marie & Mark for making our stay so wonderful, we really enjoyed our time with you guys.

Away from the tourist hub of Pokolbin is the peaceful location of Elfin Hill where Marie will look after all you needs. Was an excellent find and I will certainly highly recommend to all my family and friends traveling to the Hunter Valley.
