Very nice hotel room. It was massive! Pretty outlook too. My only complaint is the crap WIFI and the concierge not giving us directions to our room (it was a bit of a drive) which meant we got lost. We had dinner at the restaurant, which although overpriced was very tasty. I would stay here again.

Every once in a while we are on the receiving end of being cared for which is so much more rejuvenating that receiving great service. The staff did exactly that for me - they cared. From the moment I checked in and through each experience at the Coffee Shop, The Spa, The Vintage and Conferencing, I mattered and everyone working... More

We recently got married on the 12th July at Chateau Élan and also stayed in the one bedroom villa for 3 nights. AMAZING!! From the food to the scenery and the room. But the greatest thing about this place is the staff. Huge thank you!! And a special mention to Corinne and Keith! ❤️

From the time we arrived to play golf nothing was missed, Carts, practice balls and one really challenging golf course, the Vintage. But is was the Cafe and Apartments which were the most spectacular views of the course. From the large Bathroom with spa bath to the very comfortable King Size Bed. I wish we had spend more time soaking... More

We have stayed at a few places in the hunter valley region and this place is by far the nicest. It is new, the rooms are spacious and modern. We stayed here in summer and got to use the pool. It was great becasue not many people use it so we had it to ourselves. The staff was helpful. It... More

We stayed in the spa suite. Room was excellent and the spa bath being incorporated into the bedroom instead of being in the bathroom was perfect. The ergomotion bed was interesting, initially it was cool but we soon got sick of it and would never use it again if we owned one! The bed was also way too soft for... More

Stayed at the hotel as birthday Gate-away with friends. We stayed in the 2 Bedroom Spa Villa... Amazing! really lovely and cozy! The gas fireplace got quite handy for the cold weather! and we had dozens of wild Kangaroos in front of the room with lovely views to the golf course. The downside of the room is that there is...

My wife and I decided to spend our wedding anniversary at the Chateau Elan again this year. We stayed in a one bedroom villa. Pleasantly surprised with the plate of fruit in our room welcoming us back. Very spacious, clean, modern villa with a gorgeous gas fireplace - perfect for the cold winters mornings and evenings. The villa has everything... More
