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!...

From the moment I arrived at Elfin Hill, I was staggered by the idealistic surrounds, warmth and generosity of Marie and her staff. The location is set in a semi rural landscape in close proximity to the local wineries. My stay was relaxing and rejuvenating. The only down side was having to leave. I would whole heartedly recommend an escape... More

After staying at Elfin Hill for a short weekend earlier in the year we decided to have our wedding party stay and our reception after getting married in the hunter valley gardens. Without fuss we booked the whole weekend for the bridal party and parents. With help from the owners we decorated got catering in and had a fantastic time.... More

My partner Rachael and I stayed here for what was supposed to be 1 night but instantly decided to book an extra night moments after seeing the room.

Thanks Hugo and Rachel for your great review. Our neighbours grapes certainly make excellent wine and it is lovely to be able to share some local produce with you. The chickens currently have some new little chicks..so cute. Hope to see you again back here on the Hill. More

Elfin Hill is nicely located on a small hill overlooking the vineyards just outside Cessnock. Therefore it is close to all attractions of the area: Cellar doors, restaurants, Hunter Valley Gardens etc. We have also enjoyed cycling in the area very much. The owners are very friendly, we have had the best stay and will come again.

I must say a short 3 night stay in this establishment is really what you need to make it the perfect experience in Hunter Valley. Tucked in the private area in Polkolbin, Elfin Hill has all the privacy and at the same time accessibility to the various vine yards in the region. We stayed at the Loft Villa, it is... More
