Amazing, friendly staff, very good service, food 10/10, spacious rooms with great views.
For a 5 star hotel, I really think the management needs to install fans in the bathrooms. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay.
I'd go again (once the fans in the bathrooms are installed and actually working)

Stayed in Chateau Elan for the Mothers day weekend and it was the perfect place stay. All staff were accomodating, friendly & helpful. We stayed in King Spa room, 1st floor and loved the open courtyard. Room was clean, bathroom is spacious, bed is comfortable. We ordered room service and food was excellent. Dined at Legends and food was even better. We also loved the outdoor spa in the swimming pool area. Over-all, i highly recommend and will definitely go back.

We stayed here over the weekend in a one bed spa villa and had a thoroughly great time. The rooms are really nice and relaxing and the open fire was great in the evenings. Great facilities including a very nice heated pool and jacuzzi and also a children's play area which our 18 mth old daughter loved. Also, there are loads of kangaroos that sit amongst the villa's which we loved!. Great location to all the wineries and the Hunter Valley Gardens only a short drive away. Can't wait to stay here again one day.

We stayed at the Chateau Élan for our anniversary and we have only positive things to say.
The rooms are beautiful, clean and located in a central part of hunter valley.
Kangaroos grazed on the grass near our room every afternoon.
The hotel staff went out of their way to make our anniversary celebration special.
We will return to this hotel.
Such a memorable experience.

I stayed midweek and got an excellent rate, without which I would have chosen one of the hotels (Sebel or Crown). It is on the same site as the Mercure vintage. Each villa has 4x one bedroom units and 4x king studios. Parking is opposite villas. It was very quiet, but if you go at weekend I imagine it has the potential to be noisy as there is only a slight partition separating each accommodation unit and people are often very inconsiderate when on recreation leave, aren't they? INside the villa is spotless and very large. There are a couple of things designed to extract as much financial advantage out of people, such as no free foxtel movie channel (but they do have spoort and news!). If you want a movie you have to pay $17!! Extortianate) for one, on demand. Also, the temperature on the bar fridge in the king studio is not set low, so if you want to refrigerate stuff you must contact reception. I doubt anyone storing insulin or eye drops would want to hike up to reception each time they needed those medication, especially late at night. IN the large, new bathrooms, there is no hand rail on the bath come spa, which is an OH&S hazard as one has to grab the bath rim or the tap fittings getting in and out. NOt safe for elderly people. The bed is the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. The unit has no opening window which can be a disadvantage to those who like fresh air. On the positive side, the day spa was fantastic.

Thanks guys for a great stay, we enjoyed it thoroughly, legends restaurant was good, the view was great and the staff were tremendous, I must have caught something in my eyes and had a terrible sore eye but the staff gave me some saline and were very helpful, that's service!, the villas were so roomy for 2 and my partner and I enjoyed the space and quietness.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a weekend at Chateau Elan and couldn't fault it. The facilities are fantastic, the service is genuine and helpful beyond the norm and the Spa Suite rooms are so lovely you won't want to leave. The location for the Hunter is excellent and you are within a few minutes drive of great restaurants and wineries. If you can go for a couple of nights at least to make full use of all of the facilities I recommend it!

Room Tip: The Spa Suites look out over the golf course and rooms on the upper level feel more private.
