“Great motel in a great Location!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

I found myself needing to stop in Cessnock on the drive from Sydney to Brisbane. Not knowing the town at all, I had a quick scan around town for a motel. The facade of the Cessnock Motel was very welcoming along with its close proximity to the Oporto & McDonalds Restaurants arcross the road.
It was after dark and even though I hadn't made a booking, the lovely Celeste was able to accommodate me for the night. She gave me a double room away from the road (the busy New England Highway). Although I did not hear any road noise through the night.
Celeste told me the motel had been renovated about 10 years previously and the motel was 46 years old. There was no sign of an aged motel. The exterior was very neat and well maintained and the room I had was very modern with ample motel facilities. The decor was very nice with fresh white walls and chocolate brown furnishings. The bathroom was spacious with a large shower, great shower head and good lighting. The cleaners do such a good job the room was spotlessly clean.
It all made for a very comfortable stay and a relaxing sleep.
The management has supplied guests with filtered water in the fridge, tea & coffee and plenty of information about the surrounding Hunter Valley.
I hope I can make that trip again soon and will definately stay there again and recommend the Cessnock Motel. Not to forget Celeste, who was such a pleasure to meet.
Thank you very much.

Outstanding motel .Very clean and modern rooms.The owners provide a five star service with in room breakfast,restuarant books and tour advise.The prices are very reasonable and it is by far the best motel in Cessnock.My wife and I stayed last weekend and while we don't normally write reviews we thought this Jewel needed to be mentioned.

Great hosts who have put love and attention into the units. They even have breaky room service and they found is a good wine tour. They charge a surcharge for credit cards which is annoying for international travel. Rooms are very clean and modernized.

We stayed here for one night on our way to a conference. Our room was clean and quiet and very comfortably appointed. The hosts were very pleasant and helpful.
The motel is very conveniently located close to Cessnock and close to the wine region.

We stayed here with our two daughters for a night a week before Christmas, during a trip driving down from Brisbane to Sydney. We were greeted by Celeste by name on arrival. She and her partner were both very friendly and helpful, giving a lot of useful advice about our quick tour of the Hunter Valley the next day ( Mount Pleasant winery does a pretty interesting tour and tasting ). They also recommended a really superb gastro pub about 15 minutes walk away ( Royal Oak I think ) v where we had a truly wonderful meal with very reasonable prices.
The room / suite was very clean and comfy , there is a nice little pool for a refreshing dip , and you can have breakfast served by the pool if you like. Cessnock is only a very short drive from the vineyards and a good example of a small Australian market town . This motel is very highly recommended.

Third time staying here and will return. Comfortable clean rooms and great personal service. This time we stayed in room 20 and lots of space for our porta-cot. Celeste went out of her way to make sure we had everything for the baby including a microwave.

My wife and I spent a night at the Cessnock Motel with our 4 month old baby. We found that Celeste was extremely helpful. She went out of her way to find us a restaurant that was open on boxing day and even tried it a few weeks prior to our stay to make sure we would be enjoy the food. Celeste also made sure that we had everything we needed for our baby to make the stay as pleasant as possible.
