This was our first visit to the Hunter Valley. We had booked the one bedroom spa villa. It was so lovely to walk into a warm room with the fire and lights on and a beautiful scent. The room was very spacious. The buffet breakfast was fantastic with a great variety. We had dinner in the restaurant one night and... More

My partner and I stayed here during mid august for our anniversary. We were so happy! The room was beautiful and I can't even explain to you the comfort of the bed! The staff were lovely and helpful. I can't recommend this great venue highly enough. I know I'll be back!

It can be really hard to decide where to stay when you don't know the area you are going to so all the reviews you read really help in the decision making. The reviews for the Chateau are all true and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay for the 4 nights we were in the Hunter Valley.... More

Took my Dad there for his 80th to enjoy fine food, fine wine and fine service. It started with complimentary fruit platter, bubbly, birthday cake and personalised note in his room. We all met downstairs to wander over to dinner and had the door opened for us by none other than Joe Spagnolo, the General Manager, still at work at... More

I have to say I've never felt the need to write a review about a place I've stayed at before. Well, that was before we stayed at the Chateau Elan. We've just come back from there, in fact, and it was absolutely fantastic. We booked three nights in a one bedroom suite, overlooking a Greg Norman golf course The fire... More

We stayed at the Chateau in one of the Villa's. They are well layed out and comfortable. From their we played some golf at the Vintage (part of the complex) and tried the spa which were both very good. All food was served in the golf clubhouse which is a great venue although I would have to say the food... More

We booked into a one bedroom spa villa for 7 nights (checked out this morning). We had been through a stressful time recently, and wanted to pamper ourselves whilst exploring the Hunter Valley. We could not have chosen better, unless it had been by deciding to stay longer. The accommodation was excellent, with highlights a deep spa bath, gas open... More
