The bed was extremely comfortable and the decor fresh and contemporary.
The room had plenty of space.
A very relaxing environment.
The free wifi a bonus.
The Pokolbin village was very hand being at the door step.

Great friendly and helpful staff. Excellent value for money. Well located near the centre of the Pokolbin area. Easy access to all the area has to offer. Clean and very well serviced. We had a great weekend. Thank you.

We wanted a one night stay in the Hunter Valley, which is almost impossible to do. This property became available for one night 5 days before the date of our stay. Prices in the Hunter are high these days, and this property was good value for money. The staff were brilliantly accommodating and helpful and the house is quite large with most bedrooms quite separate from each other. Great for families or groups. Location can't be beaten - very central. The only downside of the property is a lack of dishwasher.

While very clean and spacious we were disappointed in our 2 night stay there. Why? There was no breakfast included , you could buy one in a restaurant and that was was too expensive for what it was. There was nothing on the premises for an evening meal so one had to drive somewhere else and that in a wine area! Admittedly we were there during the week and in March,off season, so nothing was really geared for tourists. Unfortunate as we would not further recommend a stay there.

Hi Meerbee

Thank you for posting your review of Pokolbin Village on Trip Advisor. We are pleased that you found the rooms clean and spacious.

Your comments regarding the restaurant costings will passed directly on to the owners of Vittorio's Restaurant as they are separate to Pokolbin Village Accommodation. We are sorry to hear that the dining options available were not suitable for you. Vittorio's is open breakfast and lunch 7 days from 8.00am and dinner Friday - Sunday nights from 6.00pm. Should our guests require dinner other nights we have two restaurants within walking distance and many others within a short drive or taxi ride away.

We only wanted to stay for the Saturday night so we didn't have to drive back to Sydney after a very long lunch with friends. Not many places in the Hunter let you stay for one night over the weekend but the Pokolbin village did. Great. Spacious basic rooms, very comfortable, pool looked extremely clean and maintained but it could get noisy in the summer. Staff friendly and helpful. Trash bins outside our bedroom window were not good.

Stayed here for a long weekend over the 27-29 June 2014. Perfect location for exploring the Hunter - very central to many wineries, restaurants and The Hunter Valley Chocolate shop. It's almost like its own little hub with a restaurant, grocery store, cheese shop, chocolate shop and wine shop all out front of the accommodation - very handy!

We didn't try the restaurant, but did purchase a few goodies from The Smelly Cheese Shop and Wine Outlet. Staff there were great, offering advice and handy tips.

The room was very spacious, it was great having our own lounge area where we could set-up for an afternoon antipasto plate and a few glasses of wine. Only negative was the shower lacked pressure, minor detail for a short stay.

The staff were very friendly too, I would highly recommend this place and will be staying here again on future Hunter trips.

Hi MelMair

Thank you for your positive review of Pokolbin Village Accommodation. Our location certainly is second to none in the Hunter Valley.

Whilst we do use environmentally friendly shower heads I have passed your comment onto Maintenance to ensure that there is no water pressure issues within the rooms.

We look forward to once again welcoming you to Pokolbin Village in the future!

Tried to obtain other hotels for the weekend and this was the only one in the price range to suit us all. From the time of booking plus other calls and plus the check in, we could not have been happier as the staff were A1. Nothing was a problem. The rooms were well appointed, just lacking a microwave, and thanks to the last guest that borrowed the hair dryer, all was good. The beds comfy and thankfully, a soft pillow. Very quiet location and worth a stay. PS Don't forget to buy the breakfast vouchers, value for money.

Thank you for review! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and found our location quiet and our staff accommodating. Our apologies for not having a hair-dryer in your room. This certainly should have been picked up by our housekeeping team upon preparing your room and has been raised with the Housekeeping Manager.
