5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We only stayed for one night but would love to have stayed longer. The staff were wonderful as were the rooms. The spa bath was lovely and clean and we had an excellent meal in the restaurant. It was a shame breakfast was not included but was otherwise first class. I would definitely stay here again.

This 2 day stay was wonderful with the spa suite accommodation very lux. We jagged a 'wotif' special and enjoyed living like a King and Queen for 2 days. The day spa was lovely, peaceful, relaxing. My husband enjoyed appreciating the Greg Norman designed golf course. True resort style, we called reception for a taxis and staff picked you up... More

Lovely hotel and golfing complex set in the heart of the Hunter Valley. We chose a Spa Suite and the accommodation was superb. Beautifully equipped, spacious, and very quiet. The room provided fresh coffee and overall I’d recommend this hotel as part of a stay in the wine region (especially if you love golf). Worth noting that the room are... More

All in all a very nice place, but not sure it should be calling itself 5 star accommodation. The pool area was very ordinary and lacking. The room is big and functional. The bathroom is spacious but a bit ordinary looking. The bed is comfortable with good linen. All quite clean throughout but just lacks something.

My husband and I stayed at the Chateau Elan for two nights (Friday and Saturday) in a one bedroom spa villa and were left a little disappointed. The main things letting down the Chateau Elan are the cleaning service and the room fit outs. Checking in was really easy and the staff were very friendly and helpful although we found... More

A great golf resort with fine service and large rooms. Our small group used Chateau Elan as our base for Hunter Valley wine tasting trips. Our villa was large and comfortable. Note that there are first and second floor units, so specify a preference if you have one. The breakfast buffet was well appointed with very good food. The mob... More

The staff were so helpful and a special thank you to Stephanie who is on the reception desk and nothing was too much of... More

We got a fabulous deal on a "spa villa" room, which is a hotel room, through using the Mystery Room option on wotif. Normal rates were $249, and we got it for $185 for both a Thursday and a Friday - in Hunter Valley the room rates explode on Fridays and Saturdays, going up by factors of 1/2 to 5!... More

Very good personal service. Rooms are nice with balconies overlooking their nice golf course. Great wildlife: Kangaroos running around and many interesting types of birds. Nice dinner food, but the ambience in dinner restaurant could have been much better. Too much aircon and room looking a little bit like a conference room, which is a pity for such a lovely... More

Chateau Elan is on the Vintage Estate in the Hunter Valley. Accommodation: The accommodation and scenery is spectacular with kangaroos just outside your door. We liked the rooms which were well appointed and extremely comfortable. The spa was also a lovely treat and the massages and plunge spas were divine. No Pool: It did however miss some fundamentals - there... More
