“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

We stayed there during Christmas- Boxing Day, so we did not expect much because everyhing were closed during the festive season but we received an exceptional service. The continental breakfast was very generous. The room was very clean especially the bed, linen and the bathroom. The air-condition is a bit noisy. Good location, surrounded by stores like Big W, Woolworths and Cessnock Supporters Club.

Staff were great from booking too chatting too helping could not do enough to help.
Location was great as we were up to have a look at wedding venue in the Hunter Valley and it was 10 mins away.
The room was ok but the bed was not very comfortable. The carpet had some marks on it and the room could do with a good dust.
Over all ok for the price. Would stay again.

My husband and I had the best experience here on New Year's Eve. When we arrived the young woman at the desk was extremely helpful telling us about the wineries, and recommending restaurants, one of which we decided to book for dinner, as they had a free shuttle service that picks you up.
We were literally running about 5 minutes late and when we came down to catch our shuttle, apparently it had only waited a few minutes and then left. (The driver did not know our last name otherwise reception would have notified us.)
Not knowing how we were going to get to dinner, the man at reception, Graham, said he would be okay to leave the desk for a few minutes and give us a ride. We could not thank him enough for this, as it would have been too late to get a cab (and expensive.)
It is actions like this that make all the difference in the world. Thank you Graham, and the rest of the staff here for going out of your way!

Room Tip: Our room was spotlessly clean; there is also free wi-fi and free guest laundry.

Overall the stay here was good- came for 2 nights; it was clean and quiet, and in a good location. At this hotel, you are in the middle of Cessnock, which means you can walk to shops and restaurants, but it is a drive to the vineyards. The continental breakfast was also nice. The only issue was a leaking toilet that left a perpetual puddle on the bathroom floor... but that was really the only problem.

While not advertised on their webiste, they have a partnership with Anytime Fitness around the corner, so you can use that gym for a fee if you want to work out. Or, 10 mins walk away there is a public pool that is less than $4 to use, and quite a large size.

Finding accommodation that allows a one night (only) stay in the Hunter Valley is virtually impossible so I was pleased to find this hotel with a very reasonable one night rate, and is located only 15 minutes from the centre of the Hunter Valley wine country.

The room we stayed in was cosy with air conditioning and a reasonably sized fridge (important for those cheese purchases). It was nice to have a couch and coffee table to sit at instead of just a bed.

Would recommend to travellers who need clean and comfortable accommodation without frills.

Stayed here last Saturday night as we were going to a concert in the vineyards. Good location, as it is next door to a very good club. Room 202 was excellent as it had a double lounge and tv, plus a bed with tv. Room not large but comfortable. Only down side to staying was that the price went up 100 dollars due to the concert. 245 for a bed without breakfast in Cessnock is a little steep. However, the Club which is less than a minute across the parking lot is good. We all had bacon (lots), 2eggs, grilled tomatoes, toast and coffee (latte) for 13 dollars. Great value. Would stay here again, but would try and book in advance to keep price down.

Room Tip: Rom 202 excellent. Comes with 2 sweater lounge and it's own television.

We stayed here for two nights before we headed to Cypress Lakes Resort and the beds were very comfortable. We should have stayed longer. The lady at the front desk was very welcoming and it was very clean and easy. The rooms were very clean and nice and room service was great. It's a quiet location and in the heart of all the main stores, coles, woolworths, big w, target. easy to walk around. Right next door is a lovely hotel for dinner and drinks and very convenient. I would definatley book my stay there again if in the area.

Room Tip: There are only two levels, but Im guessing level 2 would be the best (where we stayed) higher up fro...
