I stayed in the John Hunter Motel in Muswellbrook this past week, being the 3rd time I have stayed here on business travel in the past 3 years. The first time I stayed here I was booked in by colleagues, since then I have booked directly with the hotel. I paid AU$120 for the night for a room for 1 person. The room assigned had a Queen size bed and a single bed.
This hotel is large (not sure how many rooms, but it comprises 2 double story blocks linked by a covered walkway), and in each of my stays has been predominantly occupied by business travellers.
Being the week after New Year, the restaurant and bar was closed but room service was available. The staff were happy to recommend a nearby restaurant that was open, and was a good recommendation. When I have stayed there in the past I have had good evening meals in the restaurant, both on my own and with clients.
The hotel is a bit dated, however each time I have stayed there the rooms are in excellent condition and clean. In the summer it gets very hot in this area, and the air conditioning was a 'split system' and delivered cool air with no intrusive noises.
There is a swimming pool between the 2 buildings, but I did not use it.
Upsides - very comfortable, frienly staff, affordable, lots of car parking.
Downsides - can not book online, need to contact the property directly. I tend to prefer online bookings where available.
Would I recommend this hotel to my best friend?
