We booked for 2 nights at the reasonably-priced Hunter Valley Motel as we were meeting friends and doing a tour of the wineries in the Hunter Valley. We arrived early and there was no problem leaving our bags there while we set off on the tour. When we arrived back our bags had been placed in our room and the hanging clothes in the wardrobe.
The room is comfy with a queen bed, 3 seater lounge, large coffee table, bedside drawers and 2 chairs at the benchtop. A kettle, toaster, cups, glasses and tea & coffee are provided but if you want toast, you’d have to provide your own plates and knife etc. The bathroom was ample with a larger than normal shower recess. A flat-screen TV offered ample program selection and the overall condition of the room was fine.
Plusses: The lady manager is a happy smiling and obliging person and there’s FREE WiFi. The motel is one of the closest to the wineries and is also about 50 metres from Oporto and McDonalds. The main street of Cessnock is only an additional short walk and there is an IGA supermarket close to the motel.
Minuses: Noise. Noise from the road where B-Double trucks rumble until night and start about 5am. Closing the bathroom door did little to reduce the noise. The motel car park has been resurfaced recently and the noise of the guests’ car tyres on the fine gravel is intrusive. Double glazing of the room’s windows would reduce the noise enormously, but would be a costly expense for the motel owners.
We cancelled the second night as we were only an hour from home and I was looking forward to a quiet night.
Would I stay there again? Maybe – for the price and WiFi
