Elfin Hill was the greatest environment for our extended family get together. Being able to book the whole place made it feel like a home away from home. Marie and Mark made us very welcome, including arranging a special birthday gift for our family's grand patriarch who was celebrating his 96th birthday! We enjoyed the lovely fire, had a great...

A wonderful experience with very down to earth friendly people. We loved our stay at the Hunter Valley. The Hunter Valley people have a real sense of community spirit. It's awesome! Can't wait to visit again. Our accommodation had everything we needed.

We came to Hunter Valley to taste some wines on our first trip to Australia visiting Sydney, Melbourne, Central Cost and Blue Mountains. We arrived late with our 5year old daughter to Elfin Hill and we felt immediatelly at home. Marie gave us great tips for restaurants, her breakfast in the morning was very enjoyable among nature. Her tips for... More

First of many stays was in 1978, great location to visit the wineries and then enjoy the quiet location and genuine service of Marie and staff. Beds to get lost in, bathrooms are dated, large breakfast/relaxation common area to enjoy. Marie continues the relaxed mood and nothing is too much attitude of the original owners. For us, Elfin Hill is... More

We stayed at Elfin Hill recently to attend the Eagles Concert. The motel is several minutes from Pokolbin village and is set in a pleasant garden with charming views. Marie, the owner was friendly, helpful and efficient. The room was basic, especially the bathroom but adequate for our needs. We particularly enjoyed our breakfasts served in the pavilion which is...

Elfin Hill certainly is a very convenient spot to stay for the concert weekends with the bus stopping at our gate an added bonus. We have planned an up grade of rooms during our quieter winter months so lets hope that by your next return it will all be done.. More

After the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor we thought we were in for a wonderful weekend. I've never written a review before, but I felt compelled after the experience we had. It was hard to write the below review..... Unless you are in the brand new "loft" room (which is beautiful, private, big and new), then this is nothing more... More

We stayed for a few days in February and didn't want to leave! From the moment we arrived I was amazed at the beautiful surroundings, and the owner Marie couldn't be more helpful. The rooms have a warm, cosy feel and the fully functional, well-stocked kitchen was a bonus. Thanks guys!

This is a cute little place on lovely grounds. The owner Maree is friendly, helpful and nothing is too much effort. The rooms have a traditional log cabin feel to them and you can smell the flowers and rosemary wherever you are. The is a communal room where you can play music, a guitar or just sip your wine and...

Great to hear from you Susie. The adoptavine programme with Draytons Family Wines is certainly an excellent idea to be part of the grow, pick and make process..hard work.... it is, but pays off with the result at the end - the wine tasting !! not to mention the food, the company and the good fun had along the way!...
