Stayed here after originally booking elsewhere.
Great value for money, room was clean & tidy, bed was comfortable, ensuite spa was wonderful and outdoor heated pool was great. The only hiccup was with the TV as we couldn't get normal digital TV channels. Turns out a previous guest had stolen the set top box. The after hours personnel swapped over the TV for a newer one in less than 15 minutes and all was good.
I'd certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to ask for one overlooking the water out the back. Lovely view to wake up to.

We recently spent a weekend with friends at Leisure Inn Pokolbin Hill. The location was great and the accommodation was at least 4 star rating. Unfortunately the same can't be said for some of the staff. Their lack of customer service and general inflexibility made our stay less than desirable. The Cafe opens for dinner FROM 6pm but apparently 8.03pm on a Thursday night is way too late to be considered for serving. However on a Saturday night with almost no one else in the 'restaurant' it took 2 hrs for main courses to be delivered and it's not like they were supplying us with drinks in the mean time - we only had 1 round of drinks.

Room Tip: Get your booking right the first time, if you want to change it is is extremely painful.

Loved our stay, staff at reception were wonderful, our accomodation was clean, very comfortable beds and lovely big bathroom, walking distance to where we wanted to go, and view from our room was very peaceful. Lovely brekky at the resturant, the girls were pretty busy but we were happy to sit and relax and then enjoyed a big yummy brekky, overall a great stay and would recommend to all and go back ourselves xx

Stayed here mid- week for a lil getaway. All good. The hotel has a great location and is a short drive to gardens, lovedale, Pokolbin village etc. Rooms are clean and self-contained. Have stayed here before this visit and would stay again. Good experience!

We were in the Hunter for one night and wanted somewhere to stay where we wouldn't have to drive to the wineries - McGuigan, Tempus Two and Brokenwood are easy walks.

Great accommodation with all the mod cons and jacuzzi bath - we just wished we had planned to stay for longer!

Very friendly staff, most impressive that they can accommodate for a one night stay not like other venues who then go back on their word and will offer a one night stay closer to your arrival date.
Very clean, spacious, close to the hub of all activities. All amenities good. Great for families, romantic getaway,or to catch up with friends. Price point much better and better value than other venues. Enjoyed the fridge being larger than the smaller ones in motel rooms. Will definitely be going back. (Jill)

Visited for a birthday treat. The room was great. It was clean and it was brilliant to have an ironing board, iron, microwave, kettle, fridge, extra pillows and towels. There was also a bath spa in then bathroom. There was a table and chairs outside the room as well which was nice. We went in to pool and used the tennis courts. The hotel could organise a wine tour but we decided to book it ourselves the staff on reception were really friendly. The location is great. Within walking distance to 2 or 3 vineyards and a short drive into cessnock.
