Good quality rooms, a nice size and nice furniture. Liked the room's outdoor table and chairs overlooking the golf course. The breakfast buffet was very good. The weather was unexpectedly bleak when we were there, but the hotel is very pleasant, and seeing kangaroos is always a treat for a city slicker.

Stayed here to celebrate a significant birthday. When hotel staff found out it was my birthday they exceeded my expectations and delivered a small cake to our room. This small touch was indicative of the entire stay. A very understatedly elegant hotel that offers the exceptional (and often unseen) little luxuries and touches. Thank you to the staff at Chateau...

We booked in for a one-night stay - we were passing through the day before and just dropped in and booked it for the following night as a last minute treat. The Duty Manager who took our booking was definitely not suited to front of house - she was very frosty and looked quite disgusted at having to take our... More

Loved our stay at Chateau Élan. Suite was lovely, bed very comfy. LOVED the Appelles complimentary body products plus cafe well appointed with great coffee!! Great spot to head out and explore wineries :)

My partner and I stayed at the Chateau Elan during a very warm weekend in January, 2015. We stayed in a King Spa Room which was very luxurious and equipped with everything to help us have a relaxing weekend. Staying on the second level (highly recommended), we had a lovely view from our balcony out to the golf course and... More

My experience was excellent, everyone was polite and helpful. The star was our one bed villa, beautiful views, kangaroos, golf course. Our villa was clean, great AC, very quiet, kitchen equipped for small meals, they however do need to get new couches, stylish but so uncomfortable. They should by this point supply free wifi. The pool was a little over... More

With a little sleuthing and solid research we narrowed this mystery booking down to one of two places and boy were we pleased. 5 star that really delivers. Doors opening before you by the welcoming and pleasant staff. They will collect your bags from car and park it for you. I wasn't keen till about the third time they asked... More

My partner and I wanted to celebrate our recent engagement with a much anticipated weekend trip to the Hunter Valley. We were referred to both the Chateau Elan and the Crowne Plaza but chose the Chateau Elan based on the five-star offering they claimed they had. This was definitely not the case. After a long drive from Sydney, we arrived... More

We have stayed 3 times before and enjoyed this hotel but this stay was very disappointing. The room we were given was right next to the hotel entrance on the ground floor which was very noisy and it looked out onto a concrete wall that was enclosed as a supposed balcony area and if you sat out there all you...

I stayed at Chateau Elan with my wife and two young kids over the Xmas week. The 2 bed spa villa was perfect for this - effectively a spa king (a large bedroom) interconnecting with a spa villa (with a bedroom, kitchen, dining and living area (including fire)). The views over the golf course with the kangaroos hopping across and... More
