Mercure Resort Hunter Valley Gardens
Ranked #8 of 15 Hotels in Pokolbin
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We booked this place on the centre of hunters valley and were not disappointed. The resort is large and set in lush mature gardens with a good size pool etc. the rooms are very large and well presented. It's not new but very presentable. The whole place is set up in a ranch style and the entrance and lounge room is spacious and welcoming. We had a very comfortable night after a day wine tasting which is not hard to do and woke up refreshed and ready for the hardly breakfast ( which was extra but with the right card you get a 50% discount). The gardens are nice to walk around and the place is very peaceful. Thanks for a great stay.

We booked this hotel for 2 nights. Our experience began with being checked into the wrong room because our room was occupied by people with the same surname - you get that at weddings. Instead of swapping the names on the room we were left to have to explain at each staff interactiobn what had happened. Next morning we were required to vacate the room we were in and were assued our bags would be moved to our original room as a "priority". At 12.30pm we returned and the new room was not ready for us. The room was cleaned only after I kicked up a fuss at the front desk. The receptionist also wanted to put the breakfasts not paid for by the original couple in the room on our bill untill I objected. The pool area was filthy and bins and bottles not removed all w/e. The setting and gardens, though, are lovely.

Room Tip: Rooms behind the pool area have high ceilings and get more light.

we loved this hotel is so charming, there is the main lobby with restaurant bar and pool, then the rooms are separate and you park your car just out the front of your room which is very convenient. there is a winery on the property just over the wall, and the hunter valley gardens and polkobin village is only a fifteen minute walk away! so lovely this hotel very relaxed we stayed as a couple it was very romantic and quite..

Room Tip: we stayed on the ground floor and you get a little open patio with seating for 2. very nice..

We recently visited the hunter gardens for the Christmas Display and stayed at the Mercure which is attached to the gardens... WOW... the resort is so lovely.. the staff are helpful and friendly and the services are to the usual standard of a Mercure Hotel. There are 3 great pools, including one hot spa pool, set in a beautiful garden retreat. Rooms are huge and clean and elegantly decorated. The restaurant has a good range and the food was wonderful. Will definitely return.

We had a lovely one night stay in a Superior room which I booked for the courtyard and the glass-roofed bath. I booked via an Accor sale and the rate was very good value. Checkin/checkout was a breeze…staff friendly and efficient. Our room was on the ground floor, near the pool and we had no problem with road noise at all.

Some of the furniture and decor is a bit dated but its still in keeping with the location.

Across the road from the Tempus Two complex, in front of McGuigans and next to Hunter Valley Gardens Village, it's a short walk to a number of places for dinner or to buy deli provisions (which is what we did) to eat in your courtyard with a glass of wine. The pool looked inviting but the temperature dropped quickly so we didn't use it. The only thing we felt was missing was bathrobes.

We skipped the breakfast to have brunch elsewhere, but would happily stay again.

Room Tip: Superior rooms with your own courtyard and access to the pool.

A reasonable hotel close to shops and the hunter valley gardens. The breakfast is fairly standard but quite good. One slight problem is the the young staff do not appear to be properly trained in customers relations and may be a little rude at times.
