“Is paying $200 for a small room in a country town worth it?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

This country boutique hotel with the long name is run like a motel with check-in done at the bistro counter & the staff juggling the hotel duties with dinner orders but don’t let these management decisions put you off on staying here. The refurbished colonial building offers guests an alternative to a motel room & KFC dinner.This hotel is definitely tourist-centered & caters to the city slickers from Sydney with its themed rooms to its modern dinning.

Room 4 is a Small Queen Room which has 1000 TC sheets, thick carpet, mounted LCD TV with Foxtel, high ceilings with stencils, reverse cycle aircon, free Wireless however nylon robes are never great. The bathroom was very well fitted with fun but flimsy looking knobs & pulleys from the old world but space restrictions mean there is the dreaded bath shower, but there was a rain shower head. There are good complimentary bathroom products. The Small Queen room is definitely a tight fit, i felt almost cheated paying so much for such a small room. Our stay had complimentary continental breakfast in the Wineglass Bar & Grill downstairs.

No staff available after 9pm when the restaurant closes. All rooms are located on the top floor overlooking the courtyard. This courtyard is lit up at night to decrease the creepy ghost factor in this old colonial building but the orange street light glow is not cute. The Cobb & Co is much more expensive than any of the other motels in town but is more unique with its colonial theme & restaurant. The Cobb & Co is located off the main city centre & is within walking distance to most of the towns shopping & points of interest. There is street parking next to the entrance & was free.

Is paying $200 for a small room in a country town worth it? I was expecting an overwhelming hotel experience but got city comfort instead which is an OK compromise.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Cobb and Co for two weeks while in Mudgee on a work placement. This was the third time I have been a guest here and it is with much delight that I write of the consistently high level of quality and service offered at the Cobb and Co.

The rooms are very tastefully furnished with high-quality polished wooden beds, unique antique chairs with fine upholstery, and simple artworks; very fitting considering the hotel is in a 19th century heritage building. No outrageous colours - instead, whites/creams create a sophisticated and elegant retreat to retire to every evening. Without exaggeration, their's is the comfiest bed I have ever slept on!! Despite being an older building; the rooms are spotlessly clean and very well maintained (the walls in my room had recently received a fresh coat of paint; the fittings re-polished; and the televisions had been upgraded to flat Plasma screens in every room).

There are of course many fine restaurants and eateries to choose from in close proximity; but in my humble opinion, you will not find a finer and tastier meal in Mudgee than at The Wineglass (signature restaurant of the Cobb and Co) – with a range of flavoursome entrees, mains and desserts to choose from. A hearty cooked breakfast is included with the room tariff; with eggs cooked in your preferred style to perfection (along with other grilled goodies!). Coffee here is excellent too!

A special mention to hotel owner and restaurant proprietor Scott Tracey, along with his wonderful team, in particular Ben – who epitomise the essence of country-town hospitality with their warm welcomes and greetings every morning.

In brief, as far as I'm concerned, this beautiful boutique hotel is THE place to stay in if you're in Mudgee. You will feel right at home!

My daughter was married at the Cobb & Co, in March 2011. We booked out the entire hotel. The Manager, Ben and staff went out of their way to make this a perfect evening. The food and service was exceptional. 32 guests left with fantastic memories. Rooms were large and the beds very comfortable. Hot breaskfast was really enjoyable. My husband and I stayed for three nights and enjoyed our stay. We will return. Would highly recommend for a small intimate function.

Room Tip: All rooms were great,

This is one of the best motels I have stayed in for a long time. Having never wrote a review before, I felt this hotel deserved a 5star review. The restaurant is just as good, I recommend you try the restaurant if staying here.

I rang to book in a fairly short notice (that morning) and was quoted a particular price for bed/breakfast. We were impressed on arrival. We ate in the restaurant that night (a bit overpriced for the quality). Our ordered side dish of green beans didn't arrive until we'd finished our meal (even with questioning the waitress a few times)...and when it did arrive it was a Caesar salad! They offered to go and prepare some for us but since we'd finished our meals declined their offer. They did give us the salad for free and a complimentary drink, which was good.
That night the bed was so uncomfortable (too soft with no support) I had to get out of bed & lie on the floor to save my back. Other than that, the room was lovely.
We ordered breakfast in the restaurant the next morning (scrambled eggs, bacon, etc). The eggs arrived poached. We advised the waitress who argued with us about what we'd ordered! She went back to the kitchen and eventually came back red-faced and advised that she had written down scrambled but the chef had got it wrong. She offered to replace our meal but we couldn't wait any longer, so we accepted our meals (which were fine).
Upon checking out, they tried to charge us $50 more than was quoted for the room.
The main issues were poor communication within their staff.

I have just returned from a two night stay at the Cobb and Co Court Hotel at Mudgee. My husband and I could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation. This hotel has a lovely old fashion homely atmosphere, the staff were extremely friendly and the room was clean and cosy with a really comfortable bed. We had a delicious meal at the restaurant in the evening and the cooked breakfast included in the tariff was a nice touch. Would definitely stay here again!
