I didn't stay at Elfin Hill as I live overseas but some members of my family did to celebrate a 40th birthday. I wanted to surprise the birthday girl so the host, Marie, purchased a bottle of local champagne and a card on my behalf. When my cousin arrived it was gift wrapped and waiting in her room. It was...

Marie showed us around and she helped us by giving some advise about the area. Hunter Valley was brilliant and we enjoyed every moment in the area and at Elfin Hill. We give all of our recommendations and... More

Our host was Marie who is so warm and welcoming, she really made our stay an absolute pleasure. Our room (for my group of friends) was fantastic and all small touches had been thought of. Everything was clean and efficient, the breakfast was great and everyone who worked there was friendly and the location is stunning. For a weekend away... More

We booked Elfin Hill as our selected accomodation while we were in the Hunter Valley for CMC Rocks the Hunter. It sits atop a hill with the most stunning scenery and much needed tranquility. Our host Marie was so welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was ample with a fantastic selection. The large atrium room which is available to sit in... More

Away from the tourist hub of Pokolbin is the peaceful location of Elfin Hill where Marie will look after all you needs. Was an excellent find and I will certainly highly recommend to all my family and friends traveling to the Hunter Valley.
