“Lovely Stay”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Chateau Elan is a lovely place to stay in the Hunter Valley.
The venue offers new and modern styled accommodation and the staff are more than willing to ensure your needs are meet.
The golf course is fabulous and the rooms all over look the course.
The rooms are perfectly clean and appointed with the best of the best in terms of bedding, furniture, amenities and style.
I did not try the restaurant on site although I've heard good things. On visiting I prefer to eat out at Muse or Roberts for example.
Great place to stay!!

We came for a weekend away from the city and had an amazing time at the resort. There are so many wonderful things to do - from tennis to golf to outdoor heated pool. The room was very spacious - though the bedding was very odd - there is no duvet cover and because of that the sheets always end up entangled and the duvet itself always ends up out of the sheets so you are literally sleeping under a duvet without a cover - very unpleasant. Besides the issue with the linen the shower also was odd as the gap under the door let the water out and we ended up with water throughout the bathroom. Besides these two problems everything else was great and I would have given the resort 5 out of 5 if these issues weren't in the room. Also I must point out that there is simply never and carparking available right outside the hotel room. It would be great if the parking spots were numbered so the one that belonged to each room was always available when the guests arrived. Overall I would love to return. The staff are great the golf course wonderful and the grounds and the hotel itself are very well kept. Brilliant weekend away.

I simply can't say enough about this place, the rooms are far superior to the website shots, the staff cannot do enough for you - willing to help, chat and hand out local advice. Tonight we went to the Spa for a Couples Retreat - we are walking on clouds now. This was heaven - thank you ladies!!!!

We stayed in a spa villa which was fantastic! The room was warm and inviting and after a day at the vineyards, we would arrive home to neatly serviced room with the heater on which was a nice touch. If you're planning on spending time in your room,I would recommend bringing a robe as these were not provided in the spa villa. All in all, a cosy spot for enjoying a wine and watching the sunset over the hunter valley hills!

My wife and I just spent two wonderful days in this place of peace and relaxation.
The villa was sensational and the meals in the restaurant where beautiful. The entire stay was made so pleasurable because the staff were so willing to help on any request.
The location was very central to all wineries and cheese factories we were very spoilt. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice relaxing break.

Room Tip: Villas located on golf course are best

My partner and I have stayed at the Chateau Elan multiple times over the last few years and we would never book elsewhere if we were visiting the Hunter Valley. The hotel is extremely luxurious, the staff are always friendly and professional, eager to help out with restaurant bookings or even find out the best taxi deals. The rooms are always cleaned to perfection and we always get a silent comfortable night’s sleep. The hotel is situated only a short distance from the main winery crossroads. We hired a tandem bike for the weekend (definitely not big cyclists), but it was by far the best way to see the beautiful country and the lovely wineries in the area. The bar and restaurant in the Chateau Elan are excellent and open reasonably late. By far one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays in Australia.

We spend a very good weekend with my wife in Hunter and stayed for 2 nights with late checkout on Sunday. It's not cheap but 1 bedroom suites with a fireplace are very spacious and nice, with good kitchens. Hotel is new and suites are modern and have a very comfortable layout however there are still few things which owners can do to create a truly luxurious experience for guests. Just a little bit more attention to smaller details (like those cold white ceiling lights) will make it really upmarket.

The only real disappointment is The Legends restaurant. We booked a table to have a dinner straight after Friday evening arrival. The restaurant is very expensive however steaks were quite average and sides were tasteless.
It would be alright for a pub but in this price range you can get 5 times better experience in places like Bistro Molines or in new restaurant in Leogate Estate.

Room Tip: 1 bedroom suites with fireplace are very nice romantic getaway in winter . Fireplace is great! Howe...
