Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Arriving to a room already cool on a 35+ degree day was an extremely welcome and thoughtful gesture.
Quiet, spacious (executive queen), well appointed with a comfortable bed and useful amenities.
Shower pressure was excellent with the bonus of a full size bath should we have desired it. Undercover parking, Aldi almost opposite with other supermarkets and shops in close proximity, this accommodation provides the best value for money in the area without a doubt.

Good-sized room, bathroom facilities well equipped, good storage for bags/clothes for a short or long stay, bedding comfortable, plenty of food/drink available for Continental Breakfast, members of staff always friendly..Donna at Reception was a shining star going the extra mile when helping my Dad & I out when we had to deal with disposing of items from my late-Mum's flat, the primary reason for our stay, when it became apparent that we couldn't rely on the regular charity Op-shops to do pickups as they were all shut until today or a week after..her networking was a big help. Being owned by the Cessnock Leagues Club was good as Dad & I were able to do a short walk to & from the motel each night for some top food after being at the flat for most of the day cleaning up & clearing it out. Highly commended.

Great central location and exceeded our expectations. Staff friendly and helpful, rooms and amenities very clean and comfortable. Only planned on overnight stay but decided to stay an extra night. Whilst in CBD rooms were in a quiet location and we could park the car and walk to restaurants shops etc. Will be our go to motel when next visit to the beautiful Hunter Valley.

Considering this lovely little motel is just a short drive from Pokolbin, and central to local shops and cafes it most definitely is one that I would highly recommend. From the outset of booking the staff were great, and the manager was lovely enough to help in organising a ballon arrangement and roses, wine, chocolates and candles to decorate the room for my husbands 40th suprise. The price for a Saturday night was ridiculously cheap and the motel was very clean, decent sized rooms, easy access, great location, just overall terrific. I’ve stayed at a number of hotels, resorts and cottages in my time and this was definitely better than some hotel rooms from big name establishments let me tell you. Check in and check out was really easy and the motel has signs everywhere ensuring people comply with social distancing rules. Would definitely stay again with no hesitation and really appreciated everything. Thank you to the manager and staff for everything.

Staying here was a pleasure from booking to checking out. Booking our room was easy, staff member was lovely and helpful. The coved safety measures the motel had put into place made us feel safe. Our room was lovely, plenty of room to relax, comfiest bed and a decent sized bathroom with a roomy shower that was strong and hot. The cleaning staff were lovely and our room was well cleaned and looked great. The motel is in such a great location - so convenient to be close to major shops and supermarkets, cafes and the Leagues club just such a short walk from the motel where the food was great. It was very quiet and peaceful. Easy to park. Very central place to stay, clean and comfiest and lovely helpful staff. Would definitely recommend Wine Country Inn.

If you're looking for comfortable, very clean, affordable accommodation close to the Hunter Valley Wineries, you can't go past Wine Country Motor Inn. Very friendly staff, basic but nice continental breakfast for $16.50 each and not far from all the attractions of the Hunter Valley...we would definitely stay here again!

We traveled as a family of five (one child), and booked 2 rooms.
Both rooms were spotless
The rooms were large and well furnished, and the beds were very comfortable
The reception staff and housekeeping were friendly.
We walked over to the Leagues club for dinner, and had breakfast a short walk away
In short, we had a very pleasant 2 nights, and would definitely return

From the moment you check in to moment you check out you are made to feel very welcome. Great size room with comfy king bed and cloud like pillows. The bathroom is roomy and has all you need from toiletries to hairdryer and a walk in shower.
Nice and close to leagues club for a lovely meal in their bistro, it is only about a 50 meter walk. We are already planning our next visit...for 2 nights next time.

We stumbled on the gem when we scored last minute tickets to a concert at the hunter valley.
The cost was more than half of what we usually pay closer to concerts. This place was way ahead of the more expensive places. Beautiful, large room. Fluffy large towels. Exceptionally clean. Close to restaurants and clubs. Shuttle bus to the concert outside the front door. We will definitely be back.
