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.

We had a wonderful stay at Elfin Hill, waking up to a fantastic view and having breakfast on the main deck was very relaxing and the owners are very welcoming and eager to please. Would be a great place for groups to stay. The large communal lounge kitchen and deck area was fantastic.

This must be one of the best places to stay in the Hunter Valley. It is positioned some distance from the town so remember to purchase any food you want for the BBQ as you pass through if you want to avoid a return trip. We were advised that it would be best for us to eat on site rather... More

Thank you for your review. After a big day out wine tasting or riding bikes it is always so much easier to stay in and use the BBQ or enjoy the purchases made during the day on the veranda. Glad to to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. More

Great welcome, comfy beds, amazing service, awesome breaky. This is a place you should definitely stay. Just stunning. They also sorted out a great wine tour and gave us extra bedding when an unexpected guest arrived!

The rooms were lovely - we had one of the yet to be refurbished ones but it was very good, v.nice bathroom and amazingly comfortable bed. Our son had one of the refurbished rooms... More

We were looking for a peaceful overnight stay and weren't disappointed with Elfin Hill. We were a bit lucky as there were only two other couples, one of which never came out of their room, so we had a really peaceful time. The hosts were lovely, very genuine people. The communal area was great, we just sat on the deck... More
