We reserved two Deluxe rooms - a Queen and a Twin. The Twin was a slightly larger room but both were compact. An Executive room is avalable and is more spacious. The current room rate for the Deluxe (Thurs and Fri night) is $130 AUD per night. The rooms are very contemporary, with original artworks and nice dark wood furniture and chairs. The bedding in the rooms comprised of very comfortable mattresses and excellent pillows, crisp white linen covered doonas with olive taffeta throws and a decorative pillow. The windows were covered in a matching organza curtain. Very nice indeed for the discerning traveller.

Breakfast is available in a dining room on the premises on Saturday and Sunday for only $10 each. The breakfast comprised of a selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, coffee and tea and toast and jams. Simple but healthy. On other mornings a breakfast box consisting of juice, muffin, cereal, fruit salad and milk can be reserved via reception for $10 also.

The hotel is located opposite the Cessnock Supporters Club and surrounding shops and supermarkets. The motel room, despite the location, is completely noise free. The Chinese restaurant in the Club is quite pleasant too.

You will have a very comfortable rest here. Recommended to those who just wish to stay in the area but do not want romantic luxury. Just a practical stay in the area. The motel is located about 10 minutes away from the Hunter Valley Gardens tourist attraction.

We accepted an invtitation to a friend's wedding in Pokolbin, and then had to find reasonable accommodation for one night only. Easier said than done in "Hunter Wine Country" where the accommodation is geared towards weekends away and most properties have a 2 night minimum rule.

So we looked at Cessnock and found the newish Best Western motel (it opened in November 2005). The motel is owned by the local leagues (sport) club and you get access to the club as part of your stay, but we didn't have an opportunity to visit so can't comment on this.

The room was clean, quiet and had everything we needed, and the motel is not that far from the wine region. A buffet breakfast was available the next meeting. All up, it was a good alternative and met our needs and our budget.

I travel quite a bit each year (about 4 times overseas) and do a lot of research on places to stay on TripAdvisor and on other websistes (although I have never before written my own review) I was so pleased with my stay at the Best Western Wine Country Motor Inn that I decided to write my first review. It was whilst doing research for accommodation in the Hunter Valley that I discovered this Motor Inn. I read it was a new establishment and although we rarely stay in motels I decided to give it a try as I thought we'd be spending very little time there since we would be out wine-tasting a lot. The stay was a very pleasant surprise. The motel is very new, I was told about 6 months old. Everything was very clean and all room amenities were provided. Perfect location for exploring the Hunter Valley, about 8-10 minutes' drive to the Hunter Valley Gardens. For the price it was definitely EXCELLENT value! Parking was right at the doorstep, and getting luggage up to our room on the first floor was a piece of cake because the elevator was relatively roomy. The reception goes off-duty at 7pm, but the room card could be used to enter the main entrance as well as the room. It was almost like a 3-4 star hotel and there were only 2 things which I did not quite like: the shower was adequate but relatively weak (with a sort of "spray" action), and the air-conditioning (with reverse cycle heating) was a wee bit noisy. There is a "sports club" next door and a supermarket just across the car park area. We were told there was a buffet breakfast for $ 15 but we did not try it so cannot comment on the quality. Newspapers were provided and one could specify which local newspaper (e.g. Sydney Herald) one wanted the next morning.
