I said we'd be back and we did just that. We've just spent another long weekend at the 'Aussie' in Cessnock (a group of 3 this time), visiting various Hunter Valley wineries and other attractions. We had another excellent weekend. Last time we stayed in the pub (which was fine and we'd do that again) but this time we decided to stay in their motel next door. The rooms are comfortable, clean, nicely appointed and were serviced every morning. It's far better value for money than motels and B&Bs 'up in the valley' right amongst the wineries, which in a lot of cases, were only 10-15 minutes drive from the 'Aussie' anyway. We had dinner at the Swill n Grill Bistro on two of our three nights. Just like several months ago, the meals were fine, still good value for money and yes, the ribs with BBQ hickory sauce are STILL 'to die for'. We'll be back another time. Thanks again guys.
