“perfect little holiday”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

What a great place to stay. The drive in is tree lined, the view over the valley is beautiful, the rose garden is well looked after and the rooms are quiet with everything you need. The toiletries in the room also need a mention. The staff were so lovely and helpful esp the man at reception. Also the fireplace in the lobby was great to sit and relax around. I’ve stayed in 5 star places and been allot less impressed than here. We hired bikes at the hotel and rode around the wineries. The ride is relatively easy once you reach the bike path down the street. All in all, don’t hesitate to stay here. Great value and a wonderful break.

Dear Lovefinefood,
What a great profile name! We love fine food in the Hunter also and hope that you were able to experience this at The Sebel Kirkton Park. Please accept my apologies for the fact that we only offered our Seafood buffet on Good Friday in our Restaurant. The hotel offered a full menu in the bar and in room dining however, Iapologise this was not communiated to you.
Thank you for the comments on our service and also grounds with 70 acres and over 1/2 an acre of rose gardens we take great pride in being able to offer this unique setting to our guests.
Dont forget Food & Wine month is coming to the Hunter in June we are running Savoury sips and sonnets and hope you will be able to return for this fun event.

Overall quite pleased with our stay at this hotel. Room was good although we could hear the TV of the next room. Staff were friendly and helpful. Nice views from the balcony. Breakfast was one of the better buffet style breakfasts I have had. Close to wineries and about 8 mins from Cessnock. One improvement I would suggest is to have plunger coffee in the rooms.

The site is breathtaking, just acres of open space a vineyards. A very beautiful location from which to tour the Hunter Valley. The floral gardens are beautiful also. The main lounge is relaxing with a huge fireplace for winter (not firing when we were there) the bedroom a average size but with access to a wide verandah to sit and watch the sunset. Friendly staff, comfortable bed, the breakfast was okay.
