I am an Accor member and stayed one night using points. We arrived after dark and were very happy to find our one bedroom very comfortable, warm and luxurious. The shower was big, the towels thick and fluffy, the bed huge, two TV's - just perfect. We ate dinner at the Golf Club restaurant which was a little pricey but... More

Wonderful room at Chateau Elan, spacious & beautifully appointed, loved the fire. The manager Joe took special care of our group which was much appreciated. The meals were excellent, particularly the dinners, the slow cooked lamb was outstanding. The staff were very professional, attentive & friendly in the restaurant, the bar etc. We enjoyed the golf course very much &... More

My hubby and I call this "Our Happy Place" simply because it feels like a dream luxury home. We try to visit as often as we can to de-stress and have a romantic getaway. Its beautiful and accessible too, service is great and food is amazing.

A very beautiful resort in a lovely area. We stayed in one of the two bedroom units with a spacious balcony overlooking the fields. (Lots of kangaroos to see) the unit was clean and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. Very quiet and within easy driving distance of all the wineries and restaurants you could want. If you are... More

As an Accor member this is a very beautiful property - have stayed here twice and in winter. Easy location (with a car) for the variety of vineyards, cheese shops & found some great clothes. The units are self contained, quiet and the heating didn't work the first time we stayed so they just moved us to another unit. Would... More

Good clean apartment and a great breakfast available at the vintage GC. Minus 1 for pretending to be a mercure or accor - it is a very loose affiliation if any.... Like a dodgy character thought it might bring in more business by smoke and mirrors. Might as well call it the "Shady politician who build some apartments and is... More

Dear Laramber, That was certainly one of the more 'colourful' description we've received regarding our apartments. It is good to see that you did enjoy your stay despite not being awarded Le Club points. Please note though that we are not "dodgy" or "shady" in any way and I am saddened by the implication. The Grand Mercure The Vintage is... More

I stayed at this hotel with my partner over the long weekend and it was really great. From check-in to check-out we were treated really well and I have to say Daniel at reception was really great to deal with, he made everything super easy and assisted us in any questions we had. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment... More

The location is great for exploring the Hunter, right in the middle of things, the resort is a bit Truman Show-esc but that means it is nice and neat. The pool was a nice surprise as it was the coldest weekend of the year and it was nice and warm. We got some wines from nearby winery but there was... More
