Peden's Hotel

Reviewed 23 April 2014

We stayed here as we had a wedding to attend in Pokolbin and didn't want to drive back to Sydney late at night. The room and bed sheets were clean but there was mold on the ceiling. We were kept up until very late at night by some truly awful karaoke at the pub downstairs. It honestly sounded like there was someone singing in the room with us. The bathrooms are big and clean but they have a funky smell. You check in at the bar with a $50 key deposit. The service was very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for one where the window doesn't face out to the side of the pub with karaoke.

Reviewed 16 June 2013

Everything in the Hunter Valley is expensive. Not the accommodation at Peden's Hotel though; and it's for a reason, it is very basic and there is no sound proofing.

We recently stayed at Peden's on a Saturday night. The band downstairs played until midnight and it was as if we had our beds right in front of the stage. It was incredibly loud and even prior to that you could hear everything coming from the surrounding rooms.

Despite this, the rooms were clean, with soft towels and nice sheets but the beds were incredibly creaky and with all with thin mattresses. There are only 2 toilets and 2 showers for 20+ guests and there is no actual reception. All accommodation business is done over the bar, this includes key return in the morning. We had to bang in the bar door for quite a few minutes in order to get our key deposit back when we were trying to "check out".

If you are prepared for what you are in for, Peden's is a great price in an area where the cost of everything is inflated.

I would not recommend it to people with children, even though they do provide a "family room".
