After a shock cancellation of our reservation in the Hunter at the beginning of a busy long weekend, we managed (with help from the owner of a local motel which I have reviewed) to get a night at Potters Brewery. The room was tidy, spacious, well maintained and situated away from the brewery which was lucky given that it must... More

Was fascinated by the brick kilns outside, that's what drew us in in the first instance. Tried the selection of beers, and found some really good ones, can recommend the 8% IPA (just don't try driving afterwards!). Traditional style Aussie pub and grub but very good value, plus plenty of room for kids to run off steam outside in a... More

This a very central place for the Wine circuit, close to Cessnock shops and a short drive to Maitland. We spent New Year here and although the entertainment for the night was cancelled and the hotel shut at 10pm it was still a lovely spot to stay at. Rooms were cleaned daily, staff were wonderful, food was so-so but the... More

Stayed at Potters with friends to go to Lovedale Long Lunch. Was a bit apprehensive when I booked as it was the only place left as Lovedale weekend gets booked out way ahead. It is a great location as the shuttle buses go from there and it is easy to get to all the wineries and nobody has to drive!... More

From the time the receptionist took our booking so professionally we thought we were in for a good break however as things progressed things deteriorated.

We stayed 2 nights in a king villa. The room and bathroom was very spacious with all the features you need for a short stay (air con, TV, fridge, microwave, sink, kettle and coffee/tea, cups/plates/utensils etc). The outdoor patio was lovely, overlooking some bushland paddocks where we had the pleasure of observing a pair of yellow-tailed black cockatoos. The property... More
